PROFESSIONAL PROFILE

Attorney Jairo Hernandez focuses his practice on business and immigration law. He received a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Cornerstone University, summa cum laude, and a Law Degree from the University of Wisconsin.

Before co-founding Octavia Legal Associates, he helped creditors to recover outstanding debts while working at State Collection Service in Madison, Wisconsin. He worked in the law offices of Stenger and Stenger and Barbara Tsaturova in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He later joined Northpoint Bank, where he worked as an accounting specialist on bookkeeping and auditing mortgages sold to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Hernandez grew up in Venezuela, where he studied business and owned a small retail store.

He now applies this collected knowledge to help clients at his firm.

Given his experience as an entrepreneur, accounting and collections specialist, as well as a naturalized citizen, Hernandez can easily relate to his clients and help them with issues in business and immigration law.
