We Know That Hard Work Makes Dreams Come True

Two enterprising women started the law firm of Rotella & Hernandez Immigration and Family Law, in 2013. After discovering their shared vision of making a positive impact, our immigrant and family law attorneys, Nora Rotella and Patricia Hernandez, embarked on a remarkable and inspired journey that has led to more than a decade of hands-on service to the Miami community.

Our Team’s Promising Start

Nora and Patricia met during law school in 2008. The pair bonded over their shared “go-getter” attitudes and desire to help others. In the early stages, they never imagined that they would open a firm, but the fusion of their work ethic and commitment to ethical practices solidified their partnership. Clients find time and time again that they benefit from our lawyers’ backgrounds and commitment and appreciate that they regularly communicate updates and return messages within a day or two.

Not Your Typical Lawyers

Our attorneys’ initial years posed many challenges. The legal world is a male-dominated industry, and when Nora and Patricia got their start, only about 30% of lawyers were women and only 3.5% of all attorneys were of Latin-American descent. Rotella & Hernandez, LLC, quickly emerged as a beacon of legal excellence in immigration law and family law matters, paving the way for other Latin-American professionals and their families to have their own successes.

A Journey Rooted In Dreams

Both Nora and Patricia personify the American dream. As a first-generation American from Cuban immigrant parents, Nora has taken inspiration from her family’s story, which shaped the way she practices law and fights for a more just society. Her unique perspective on the struggles of the immigrant community gave her the realization that everyone deserves the best representation and affordable legal services. Needless to say, Nora works tirelessly to win cases and improve people’s lives during their most challenging times.

For Patricia, the challenges that she and her family faced as undocumented immigrants in a new country – having to learn a new language and work full time while attending college and law school – shaped her view of how important it is to work hard and provide support to those who need it most. Patricia feels most accomplished whenever she tells a client: “Congratulations, we won your case!” because she has helped change someone’s life forever.

As a first-generation American and a formerly undocumented immigrant, Nora and Patricia understand the importance of assisting others in securing legal status in the United States. The immigrant community is especially vulnerable to exploitation, which fuels our lawyers’ passion for their work, and they leave no stone unturned to support their hard-working clients.

Woman Attorneys For The Community

As a women-led firm, we are defined not only by our team’s success in the courtroom but also by the deep sense of community that we foster. Women everywhere have the power to do anything, and Nora and Patricia use their strength to create lasting positive change. Their success is a testament to the impact that passion, partnership and perseverance can have on this world.
