Moises Hernandez_bio portrait


Moises Hernandez has been practicing immigration law since 2002, and running his own law practice since 2007. He handles a variety of immigration matters including family-based applications for residency, citizenship, and deportation defense, including complex cases involving criminal convictions.

A native of Mexico, Moises moved to Chicago with his family at the age of 7. A bilingual Spanish-English speaker, the first immigration case he handled after graduating from law school and passing the Illinois bar was his own naturalization.

As a new attorney Moises worked for the Midwest Immigrant & Human Rights Center (now known as the National Immigrant Justice Center/NIJC) as a staff attorney. He started his own law practice in 2007, and he currently serves the immigrant community in the Chicago area and surrounding states.

Moises is regularly invited to speak to religious, educational and other community-based organizations (in English or Spanish) about immigration law. He is especially interested in opportunities to educate the vulnerable immigrant communities from the prevalent practice of immigration fraud by “notaries” or other unauthorized practitioners.

Moises serves on the board of Latinos Progresando. He also enjoys running, cooking, home improvement projects, and listening to jazz.
