“Assisting clients at the most exciting times of their lives is what I love most about my work as an attorney. Whether it’s starting, expanding or protecting their businesses, I find it very rewarding that people can trust me during pivotal times to give them guidance and advice so they can overcome legal and business challenges or adversity.”

John Hernandez brings a unique style to his legal practice that draws on his ability to relate to people from different facets of life and combine that with the determination to go the distance for his clients. He puts his clients first, no matter the legal issue.

At Hellmuth & Johnson, John assists clients in matters of mechanics liens and construction litigation, and business formation and litigation. “I advise people starting businesses, and assist them in forming, organizing, and structuring their business entities in the way that will deliver them the best results,” John says. “I’m also their advocate to help them navigate the judicial system throughout litigation. I see legal and business issues from many perspectives, but am able to focus in on the detailed issues that will accomplish my clients’ goals.”

John brings a varied legal background to H&J. In addition to extensive experience in his core practice areas, he also has had experience ranging from criminal defense and consumer protection to insurance defense litigation. He has worked as a criminal defense attorney and at the Minnesota Attorney General’s Office assisting consumers in matters involving fraud/scams, landlord/tenant issues, and mortgage issues. John has also handled insurance defense litigation matters representing landowners, commercial transportation companies, and business owners involved in personal injury, premises liability, discrimination, and church sexual abuse claims.

Prior to joining Hellmuth & Johnson, John represented clients in criminal and civil litigation involving expungements, DUIs, Independent Professional Assessments (IPAs) for Structured Settlement Transfers, and restoration of licenses issued by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

John is licensed to practice in the state of Minnesota and is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association and the Minnesota Hispanic Bar Association.


John received his J.D. from William Mitchell College of Law. He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison majoring in Political Science.
