John, Helped me on a very difficult child custody case/ divorce. He answered all my questions and took care of all my concerns regarding my case. Definitely made this process easier to deal with. Mr. Garvin was also very considerate and help me out by setting up a payment plan.
Mr. Garvin is an EXCELLENT attorney, we will ask for his assistance again! He answered our questions promptly, professional and overall gave us AWESOME service!!
I was sent a letter by his office that was to notify me of an upcoming court date which was exactly 60 days after the actual court date which was for W I 366.26. To terminate my parental rights. Which one can appeal if it were filed within 60 days of the hearing. Funny how that worked out. Unfortunately this man did nothing for my case being that he was court appointed and it was not something I paid for. So maybe if I had the money the guy might have cared.
I hired this attorney John Garvin after first interviewing him and speaking with him about child custody. To see if he would even help me or is I wanted his help. So when I spoke with him he was all about oh yeah "They" cant do this or "that." We'll get this all straightened out. But First I need to pay him a retainer fee before he can start. $1000, that is one thousand dollars. He took it, we went to court he never said a word of which I had spoke, just stood there quiet and whatever they were saying he was nodding his head like okay, okay and then I spoke up and the judge yelled at me , that I needed to tell my attorney not to speak out like that and that was what i hired him for. I looked like a big ass especially since my attorney stood there doing nothing. So when it was all said and done that day and court over John basically he was still trying to feed me bull about " AT " the next court date, and I was very upset there wouldn't be another court date with JOHN GARVIN!! I had just lost my kids to my ex and my attorney did not say nothing what so ever, so I hired another attorney whom is a judge now Oakley and needless to say 10 months later and 10,000 dollars later I got back full custody, so if I were you GARVIN IS A MONEY HUNGRY (BEEP) and does not care whether or not you win, he only wants your money.
John helped me do everything I need on my divorce and child custody case. He listened to my concerns and helped me reach a fair resolution. John has a great ablity to explain the process and reasoning behind the law. Thanks John
