Julieta Hernandez

Associate Attorney


I’m Julieta Hernandez, an Associate Attorney specializing in representing workers in individual and class action claims. My career is dedicated to advocating for the rights of disenfranchised, low-wage workers who deserve fair treatment and equal opportunities in the workplace.

Throughout my professional journey, I have gained valuable experience in various organizations that have shaped my passion for labor rights. My time at the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) highlighted the significance of unions in protecting workers’ rights. I conducted research on working conditions and the impact of deepfake videos, while also assisting in the pursuit of unpaid residuals owed to SAG-AFTRA members.

Additionally, I had the privilege of working with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, a renowned civil rights organization committed to defending the rights of all Latinos in the United States. During my tenure, I contributed to a range of cases aimed at safeguarding education rights, immigration rights, and prisoner’s rights.

In my practice, I focus on providing legal representation to workers, particularly within the Spanish-speaking community in California. Being a native Spanish speaker allows me to effectively communicate with clients who may otherwise struggle to find attorneys they can freely converse with. I strongly believe in empowering workers, regardless of their occupation or language, to work with dignity, free from discrimination and harassment.

Beyond my work, I find joy in exploring art pop-ups and supporting BIPOC-owned small businesses. Traveling is another passion of mine, as it broadens my perspective and allows me to appreciate diverse cultures and environments.

During my time in law school, I achieved notable milestones, such as serving as an Associate Editor for the UCLA Law Review. Additionally, I participated in UCLA School of Law’s Criminal Defense Clinic, collaborating closely with the Office of the Federal Public Defender to secure compassionate release for four inmates serving life sentences in federal prison for non-violent drug convictions. Through our efforts, two Southern California men were granted compassionate release under the First Step Act.

I am admitted to practice in the State Bar of California and hold memberships in esteemed organizations like the Mexican American Bar Association (MABA) and the Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA).

I am truly dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of workers and ensuring they are treated with respect and fairness. Let’s work together to protect the rights of those who contribute immensely to our state’s prosperity.
