Maria Hernandez

Litigation Support Specialist

Over the years I have worked in family law, immigration, bankruptcy, protective orders, criminal law, and personal injury, but what I love about the work I do within family law the most is I really get to help and guide a person through one of the most difficult times in their lives. When I worked for AVDA in the Protective Order department, I truly enjoyed the relief on a victim’s face when helping them obtain a protective order. I joined Walters Gilbreath in February 2024 and am excited to be part of the experienced legal team helping their clients navigate to the next chapter of their lives. In my free time, I enjoy bowling, couponing, and volunteering at the Houston Food Bank.
