The first time I ever talked to Mr. Garcia, I was immediately scared of him. I had never been in trouble before, and I had a lot of questions. He told me to basically shut up, and that nothing was going to happen by continuing to call him when nothing was going on. And he was right. Jaime never led me down a wrong path, never built up unrealistic expectations. Many times people would ask me "What did your attorney say about the case? How confident is he that he's going to win?" These were never the types of questions Jaime answered. He never said anything along the lines of "We have about a 50% chance of winning." To Jaime, the most important thing is that the client knows and is involved in the legal process. He told me point blank that at most, if I was convicted, I would be looking at 80 years in prison. No one wants to hear that; all someone wants to hear is how they're going to get out of it and how their attorney is going to win. That's exactly the type of attorney Jaime is. He is a monster. He is ruthless when pressured, and will stop at nothing to give you the best form of legal representation. 80 years to anyone looks like a daunting task. To Jaime, it's nothing more than a challenge that he knows he can overcome. In our unique situation, the Judge that presided over our case only gave us 3 weeks to prepare for our trial. The judge went against a deal that Jaime and the prosecutor had made concerning this case and another one I am facing, and told Jaime point blank that he had 3 weeks to do what most attorneys take months to do. We were speechless. Jaime included. But after our momentary lapse, Jaime picked himself up and nothing was stopping him. Immediately depositions were filed, schedules were changed. Days were planned out where nothing but my case would be on his desk, his sole focus for winning. And through it all, Jaime continued to be a human, apologizing again and again for things that were out of his realm of apology. He had no reason to apologize for the Judge's misconduct, but he did anyway, as he saw the strain it put onto me and my family. But that's just the type of person Jaime is. He doesn't see the client as a criminal; he's sees them as a person he can relate to, someone who is scared and unsure of how to traverse the legal grounds, who need his guidance and nurturing care to help them get the best result. And that's just what he did. In a little over a week, Jaime had crafted a well supported defense, backed by the law enforcement misconduct and preferential treatment that my case saw. He would email us quickly without a moment's notice, asking us a small but useful question to add to his ever growing defense. His defense grew so strong in fact, that the State began to waver. From a 10 year prison deal, they went down to probation. "No way" I told Jaime. "I want withheld adjudication." He did what he always did, informed me about the law. He told me that the only way he get that was if the prosecutor was going to give it to him. It was out of his hands. Or so I was led to believe. Later that night I get an urgent call from him. "The State wants an answer now. 5 years sex offender probation. 5 years regular probation. Terminate after 7 years. Withheld adjudication." Everything I had asked for. Done. Done by a miracle worker. From 80 years, to 10. to simple probation with no criminal record attached once the probation was done, Jaime Garcia did something that people only read about in mythology. In under 10 days, Jaime crafted, pressured, and won my case exactly the way I wanted it. Without going into depositions, without deposing anyone, he did what no one else could do. He won based off his character.
The State may think they won this battle. I did take their plea deal. But given the circumstances, the real winner was myself, and Jaime. He has always been there for me, as my attorney, a friend, and in some ways a brother. Call this man, and make him a part of your family. Thank you Jaime.

Best firm ever. They told me from the beginning the process and timeframe. Mr. Garcia outlined the battles and kept calling and emailing me on the case. At the end Mr. Garcia was right as he got the case dismissed by filing a Stand You're Ground motion and proved the person blaming me was wrong and a liar. Mr. Garcia tore him up in court. I recommend them to all. They also worked with me on payment. Love this firm.

I utilized Mr. Garcia's services for my divorce. It was as smooth as a divorce could be. Both himself and his staff were professional and nice. They kept me informed and assisted me with every step along the path of my divorce. I would email Mr. Garcia and get an immediate response, no matter what time of the day/night. I highly recommend the Garcia Law Group for Divorces and Family law matters.

I hired Mr Garcia to defend me from a restraining order. my ex-friend lied about me. Mr Garcia caught her in so many lies the judge was shaking his head. I was scared and Mr Garcia calmed my nerves and worked with me the night before for about 2 hours late in the night. We proved my ex friend was lying and now Mr Garcia saved my job.

Terrible lawyer, I hired him to take care of two simultaneous occurring tickets and he only addressed one of which. Later I was told by an officer that my license was suspended for the other ticket that he said he would also take care of. While all this was still going on Mr. Garcia was sending in his associates to continue the case for over several months for the single ticket and not for both so I was also issued a suspended license ticket. I set another date for the ticket that Mr. Garcia said he would take care of and called his office as a test to see if they would even have the courdesy to inform that that if I did not go in to defend and address myself on the other ticket that I would lose my license all over again and of course they told me that Mr. Garcia would be taking care of everything. I knew that was a lie and went into the court to only find his associate trying to continue the case longer and had to inform him of my circumstances. Over all untrustworthy and out for a quick buck.
