Fantastic
My experience with Attorney Garza at Connecticut Trial Firm was outstanding. Attorney Garza was professional and attentive. He provided me with ongoing support and was always available to answer questions. He and his staff worked diligently and I was very pleased with the outcome of my case. He saw my case to conclusion which was trial. Additionally, Attorney Garza demonstrated a strong knowledge of the law and alway provided me a clear explanation of all my options and what I could expect. I would highly recommend Attorney Garza with confidence.

Amazing, attentive, extremely helpful
Attorney Garza from day one was straight forward and honest with me about what could and couldn't be done with my case. Our first meeting was great, we sat down at this office and went over everything that had happened and what I wanted and expected to happen with my case. His guidance and direction throughout the whole process was amazing. Attorney Garza always made sure to keep my best interest in mind while giving me his honest opinion about the facts of the case. I was very happy with the outcome and would recommend Attorney Garza to everyone!

Worker’s Compensation injury
Andre Garza was very compassionate, caring, and empathetic. He acted upon my case immediately and kept me informed at all times. If I had a question, I received a call back right away or email with an answer. He was always there for me every step of the way, until he WON my case. His entire staff were amazing! Mr Garza fought hard for me and won! And was never in a rush with me as most attorneys are! Highly recommend.

Knowledgeable, Patient, Helpful
I was hesitant to hire a lawyer at all, but Andrew Garza made me only regret not hiring him sooner. He was not only a knowledgeable lawyer, but he walked me through the process along the way. He explained my options at every step and never pushed me into something I was uncomfortable doing. My injury was not a "normal" or easy one to deal with, but Mr. Garza was not phased at all and took appropriate measures to make sure my case was resolved properly. If you are even THINKING about getting a lawyer, I highly recommend contacting Andrew Garza. You will not regret it.

Amazing and Wonderful Lawyer
Andrew did an excellent job on resolving my accident lawsuit against a bus company within few months after he took over my case. I previously hired a lawyer from my own state but took them almost 3 yrs to figure out that I need a lawyer from where the accident happened, I'm so glad that I was referred to Atty Andrew Garza and got me a great compensation more than enough to covered all my bills ( from the emergency vehicle to my last physical therapy treatment), As a client he treat me with respect and he is the nicest person to talk to. Thank You so very much Andrew, I will be forever grateful.

Great job
Attorney Garza worked on a difficult case for me for years. He encouraged me to be patient and provided excellent advice. My case settled for the policy limits before trial and I couldn't be happier!

Andrew Garza is top-notch!
I brought a VERY different type of personal injury case to Attorney Garza a couple of years back. He paid attention to every detail of my case, thought outside of the box, and ultimately we won in the end. I couldn't be happier with his entire approach, process, follow-up, etc. God forbid I ever need someone to represent me in a similar case again, I know where I'll be going.

Review of Attorney Andrew Garza.
Attorney Garza is an exceptional professional. Both my wife and I have used his services and we found him to be forthright, knowledgeable of the area of interest, empathetic, an very accommodating. Attorney Garza represented my wife in a Workers Comp case, and me in a personal injury case. We visited his office initially to discuss the issues and take down the facts of the case. We were apprised of our position(s) and rights and what would take place after the case was taken and the process initiated. This was an efficient, and quick process. Attorney Garza was comfortable utilizing email, in person, and telephone discussions and notification of case progress. My wife and I highly recommend Attorney Garza for you legal needs. We are very comfortable in recommending him.

Kudos to Attorney Garza
I recently settled a motor vehicle accident claim in which I was the victim of an uninsured motorist. This is often a difficult situation for one who has been in this position. Attorney Garza handled everything with grace, efficiency and the results were fair and equitable. Kudos to Attorney Garza who is not only effective in negotiations, but prompt and thorough in responses to inquiries, questions and general correspondence. As someone who works in the legal business, I am aware of the nuances in perusing a claim with insurance companies. I would recommend Attorney Garza to anyone without hesitation!!
