In addition, he has found success as an adjunct professor at the University of Illinois Chicago John Marshall Law School since 2016.

In addition to his professional career, Mr. Hernandez has found success serving as president-elect of the board of directors of Between Friends and a pro bono attorney with the Chicago Volunteer Legal Services.
