Great Experience
This is the second time I've worked with Stephen; he goes above and beyond to provide great legal counsel. He's understanding, professional, and extremely thorough and will work with you every step of the way. I hired him for a real estate transaction and the process could not have been more seamless.

Great Lawyer
It's an unfortunate truth that when you need an attorney it's usually because there is a problem that needs resolving. When that time comes, it's best to find someone that’s reliable, honorable, and knowledgeable. You can't do much better than Stephen Garcia-Vidal. When I needed someone to help guide me through some personally painful legal issues, he was there in a pinch. He was very understanding and helped resolve my problems quickly and efficiently. I would recommend Stephen without any hesitation.
