Rick Hernandez

Associate Denver DUI Attorney

Richard "Rick" Hernandez was born and raised in New York City before joining the United States Air Force as a Security Specialist in 1981. The United States Air Force assigned Rick to work in Colorado in 1983. After serving our country for 4 years, Rick decided to make Colorado his home and began working for United States defense contractor, Martin Marietta, which later became Lockheed Martin Aerospace.

At Lockheed Martin, Rick worked as a certified Protection Officer, Colorado State certified firefighter, Emergency Medical Responder, and Local Union President. While employed by Lockheed Martin, Rick attended & graduated from the University of Phoenix, with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration.

After passing the Colorado State Bar exam, Rick worked for the Colorado State Public Defender's Office. It was there that Rick acquired a passion for defending the rights of the accused in the legal arena.
