  • Ronald Clayton Gardner

    I endorse this lawyer. Katie Garvin and I worked together on numerous complex litigation matters. I have seen Katie in action in court many times and observed that she is an extremely effective advocate. She knows the right questions to ask witnesses, how to ask the questions, and how to argue her points effectively to the judge and jury.
