Christine Dauphin Hernández

Attorney at Law
& Former Municipal Court Judge

Christine Dauphin Hernández has always felt that people are more than the sum of their mistakes. As a municipal court judge for more than a decade, she encountered many Texans who struggled with some of life's toughest obstacles: mental health disorders, substance abuse, homelessness, and more. Striving to give individuals and their loved ones a fair chance at a brighter future, Attorney Dauphin Hernández decided to start her own law firm. At Dauphin Law, she provides accessible, purposeful counsel to clients accused of criminal activity, as well as families who need help navigating Child Protective Services. No matter your concern, Christine is ready to listen to your story.
