CRANDALL, Texas, October 22, 2018 (Newswire.com) - Brandi H. Fernandez, Cheney, Fernandez & Associates, P.C., has joined Noticed©, an invitation-only service for distinguished professionals. Fernandez has been chosen as a Distinguished Lawyer™ based on peer reviews and ratings, dozens of recognitions, and accomplishments achieved throughout her career.
Fernandez outshines others in her field due to her extensive educational background, numerous awards and recognitions, and career longevity. In addition to many other honors, she has been listed among the ten best in client satisfaction by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys™.
With over 20 years dedicated to law, Fernandez brings a wealth of knowledge to her industry, and, in particular to her areas of specialization, criminal, appellate, family, and probate law. When asked why she decided to pursue a career in law, Fernandez said:In the past, many divorce cases would become very combative, which would be very costly and leave children caught in the middle. But now there is a bigger push for more cooperative options which are easier on children and also keep costs down. There's still more work to be done on it, but I think that it is definitely a step in the right direction.
"I have always been motivated by helping people. Before going to law school, I was involved in the Concho Valley Adult Literacy Council, and I continued literacy projects throughout my time at law school by helping establish a literacy program at Texas Tech."
Before forming Cheney, Fernandez & Associates, Ms. Fernandez served as the interim chief and first assistant district attorney for the Kaufman County District Attorney’s Office. During this time, she received the prosecutor of the year award by the Texas District and County Attorney’s Association and was featured both on CNN and in the American Bar Association's ABA Journal for her top trial skills and her ability to handle high-stress situations.
As a thought leader in her field, Fernandez offers her a unique vantage point from which to view the latest developments in her field. Commenting on trends in the family law realm, she noted the increasing demand for collaborative law in family-related cases:
"In the past, many divorce cases would become very combative, which would be very costly and leave children caught in the middle. But now there is a bigger push for more cooperative options which are easier on children and also keep costs down. There’s still more work to be done on it, but I think that it is definitely a step in the right direction."
In addition to her thriving practice and her role as the vice president of the Kaufman County Bar Association, Fernandez is a member of both the State Bar of Texas (including the Appellate, Probate, and Criminal Law sections) and the National Association of Professional Women. Through her firm, she is also actively involved in various non-profit organizations in her community.
