''Ignacio is a highly effective lobbyist,'' said FSC Executive Director Diane Duke. ''As an attorney and a lobbyist he not only knows his way around the state capital, he knows his way around the law.''
Ignacio Hernandez, the firm's founder has extensive experience at the State Capital as well as with legal issues and civil rights. He has served as the Chief of Staff for State Senator Gloria Romero; he has also served as Committee Consultant for the Assembly Committee on Public Safety. He is immediate past President and Board Member for Law Raza Lawyers of Sacramento and is California Judicial Council for the Criminal Law Advisory Committee.
Hernandez comes to this position highly recommended by FSC coalition partner the ACLU.
''With budget shortfalls and a struggling economy, it is going to be a tough year in the California State Legislature for business in general and particularly adult business. Ignacio's superior lobby skills combined with his high level of professionalism and ethical standards make him the clear choice for FSC. We couldn't be happier to have him as part of our team.''
