Never in a million years did I think I would need the services of a criminal defense attorney. I came to know Mr. Garland in my darkest days while unexpectedly being wrapped in the judicial system. Feeling lost, broken, and hopeless Mr. Garland was able to restore confidence in me. More importantly, he gave me hope, provided much needed comfort, and prepared me for the long road ahead. He immediately assured me that my case would be thoroughly investigated, reviewed with a "fine tooth comb”, and that he was prepared to do battle on my behalf. He became my voice when I was left with nothing. After years of relentless hard work, fact finding, and litigation Mr. Garland was able to have all charges dismissed. In summary, Mr. Garland is an excellent and knowledgeable attorney who is highly respected in the legal community. He is personable and shows compassion to his clients. My family and I are forever thankful for his services.

i have had a case pending for 4 years.. throughout the whole waiting process i kept in touch with my attorney. he was friendly and seemed genuinely concerned about the issues i had surrounding the case. several times throughout the wait i talked with him about the concerns i had and he has always remained positive and optimistic about the options and outcome. we are in no way "friends" but this attorney never made me feel as though i was just his client. after 4 long years my case is over and i truly feel as though i have received the best outcome possible. while in court i observed the level of respect that others in this field have for him and i can understand why.

"Attorney John A. Garland is very personable and conscientious. His first case was defending my son and he won the case. In a timely manner, Attorney Garland strategically presented undeniable, incriminating evidence against an opposing and incredulous witness that could have severely damaged my son's defense case. His sensitive handling of the case in the end minimized my son's sentence."

I have never needed the services of an attorney, but when this incident occurred I was almost overwhelmed. Mr. Garland immediately responded to my first phone call and kept in touch throughout that very first day. He and Mr.Samuel stayed in their office that evening to meet with us and began working on this case immediately. They completely respected the privacy of each individual family member, yet they kept everyone informed of any pertinent information. I believe this was the best service and most professional service I could have ever received.

John is an energetic, engaging and caring attorney. He knows the law which is necessary but he goes far beyond that to work in behalf of a client in a way that makes the client feel valued and well-represented. My son who is handicapped was involved in an unfortunate incident which was related to his medical condition. It was handled with discretion and caring.

Mr. Garland seemed to know the law. He was well aware of my options in my case. Seemed like he did not want to try the case in court.
