If you could only understand how amazing this whole experience has been. Attorney Garza kept me well informed, consistently made me feel like I was his priority, and his professionalism and legal expertise in my case was not only appreciated but needed. Without question I would refer family and friends to him.

Attorney Garza handled a very complex case for me. I thought I would have to hire an additional attorney with expertise in employment issues, but Attorney Garza handled my Worker's Comp and Employment issue case quickly and with exceptional results. If he tells you he is going to take care of something, believe him - he took all the pressure off of me and handled my case professionally, quickly, and kept me posted at all times. While a complete professional at all times, he is also so down to earth and so easy to talk with. Although I hope never to have to use his professional services again, he would be my first and only call if I had to! Thank you for everything, Attorney Garza.

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!

I was involved in a motor vehicle accident and originally did not have a lawyer. After dealing with the insurance companies, I decided my best course of action was to find a lawyer, and thus came into contact with Andrew. Attorney Andrew Garza provided me with advice and handled my case in a way that involved minimal stress and worry on my part. He consistently kept me updated on how my case was going and made sure to explain everything well. I would recommend Attorney Andrew Garza to others and he will be my first choice if I need an lawyer in the future.

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.

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.

Andrew is the absolute best attorney he always explains everything , there were no "surprises" . He is very honest and someone who is never too busy to answer questions or help out with any concerns that I might have had .

Andrew Garza was excellent in handling my case. Any questions I had through out the case, Andrew answered them promptly. He made sure I was clear and aware of everything that was going on. Very knowledgeable lawyer. He is definitely someone I trust in handling anything. I would absolutely recommend him to my family and friends if ever needed.

My first impression of Andrew Garza was he is very professional. He was extremely knowledgeable in my case. He also kept me informed at all times when anything happened or needed to be done as soon as possible.
I would call him in a heartbeat if I needed his expertise again. I would also recommend him to my family and friends if in need of his knowledge and professional areas that he specializes in.
