Andrew helped me through what was a very stressful time in my life. He was patient and responsive to my numerous questions, often taking my calls after hours and on weekends when I'm certain he had much more pressing matters to attend to. He gave me personalized attention and made me feel like my case was a priority. Unlike a lot of attorneys out there, it's easy to see that Andrew loves what he does and truly cares about his clients.

Attorney Garcia was very responsive. He explained everything and what our whole process would be depending on the options. Hopefully we won't need an attorney again lol but if we do it will definitely be attorney Garcia.

I would recommend Andrew as lawyer who is there to help the client in anyway that he possibly can. Andrew helped me to get all the necessary papers in order for a trust that was set up for my daughter. He did it in a timely fashion and at a reasonable price. I had many questions about this and he always took the time to return my phone calls and answer all of my questions.

Andrew is a strong advocate. He is not afraid of a battle, but he prefers to proactively seek efficient and practical solutions for his clients wherever possible. Andrew's excellent listening skills and his positive outlook are greatly appreciated by his clients and by opposing counsel.
