Best Attorney Ever
Oxalis is an absolutely amazing attorney. I have nothing but respect and admiration for her. I cannot sing her praises enough, what she has done for me and how she has helped me has been the best experience. I couldn’t have asked for a more dedicated, detail oriented and FAST attorney. She gets her job done and she does it well.

Custody case
Oxalis assisted me with a custody case. She was great! She put pressure on them when it was needed, she was open and honest with me. I always asked for her thoughts and opinions before I made my own decision because I wanted her expert advice and in the end I got what I was comfortable with. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone. I hope that I never have to go through what I went through of course but if for some reason I did, I absolutely would use her again.

Indubitably the BEST !
After a couple of bad experiences with family lawyer i found myself hopeless and doubtful of the legal system as a whole. It wasn't until my first meeting with Ms Garcia that i felt there was still a chance; Ms Garcia takes the time to explain with luxury of details both the situation and all the steps that need to be taken, she kept me on the loop on everything with constant and effective communication and made sure the best interest of my son was taken care of. simply the best. If you are in need of a family attorney, look no further Oxalis Garcia law fir is an investment you wont regret

Simply Amazing!!!!
After countless attempts to hire a divorce lawyer all the way from NYC and being let down, Oxalis took the time to listen to my situation and took my case. All I had to do was follow her lead and she was on point every single time. I never doubted her one bit, this was my first time hiring a lawyer. She assured me she knew what she was doing and boy did she know! I truly recommend Oxalis Garcia to anybody who needs a divorce lawyer. Once again Oxalis, thank you for giving me back my happiness! God bless!

Saving Grace
I had a pending child support case from 2008 that was started with the department of revenue. I couldn't afford an attorney at the time. I consulted with Ms. Garcia who was very honest and helpful as to our approach to resolve the case. Unfortunatly Ms. Garcia transferred to another firm during the middle of my case and I could not go with her. The attorney who took over my case didn't take the time to review submitted documents or listen to my concerns. As soon as I could I retained Ms. Garcia at her new firm. She picked up right where she left off. The opposing counsel was very aggressive. Ms. Garcia didn't blink an eye. She went toe for toe with him and put me totally at ease. She was my saving grace! I would recommend her to anyone looking for help with family law. She is AMAZING!!!!

A Great Family Law Attorney
If your are looking for a great family law attorney, Oxalis Garcia should be your first consult. She is an extremely professional attorney with a heart. She walked me through my Divorce step by step. At no time did I feel that my interest were not her top priority. Oxalis was always open and honest with me even when I was the one being unreasonable. Preparation for court and mediation were extremely through and wel orgainized. All of my questions and concerns were addressed imediately. I cannot express the amount of comfort and confidence it gave me knowing that she was on my case. The best thing I can say is that when my divorce was all done, I was happy and comfortable with the settlement and Time sharing Agreement. That being said, I was in a long term marriage with children. Oxalis Garcia is a professional through and through and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a Family Law attorney.

Professional and personable!!
Oxalis was helpful, efficient, and most important, truthful through the process. She helped me through a process that is not always easy to understand, while being honest about my expectations of the result of my case. My case was family law, so the entire thing is emotional for both sides. Highly recommended!!!!!

Great Lawyer
Attorney Oxalis Garcia was very professional form the beginning. She kept me informed at all time about my child support / divorce case. It was a very complicated case that started in Puerto Rico and has to be transferred to Orlando, FL. I was out of town and she represented me in court saving me the time and money to travel there. She conducted herself as a results-oriented performer who accomplishes all missions in a professional, efficient manner. She is totally dedicated to her client, a top performer whose work is marked by integrity and initiative. Attorney Garcia exercises strong sound judgment in dealing in court during my case. Her attention to detail and invaluable experience played a vital role in the favorite result in my case. I will strongly recommend Attorney Oxalis Garcia to any of my friends.

So Glad to come across this very kind and respectful Lawyer
Oxalis was very professional and efficiently informed me right the first time on my divorce case. The process went by smoothly with no complications. She reviewed and walked me through all the documents as well as what was to be expected in a court environment. She was very open in how the process worked according to my situation, made me feel comfortable and was very kind in answering my questions. She was always available and was very keen on protecting my rights. I am very grateful for her services and I would definitely hire her again.

Amazing asset to your case!
I had a case that had been going on for 3 1/2 years (and prior did not have money for an attorney) and others would not even touch it because as one attorney stated 'it's a pot of mush'. Oxalis not only did what others wouldn't do by taking my case but she was honest with me and fought every step of the way for me. I firmly believe I would still be going through the court process if I did not have Mrs. Garcia as my ace in the hole. I find her extremely knowledgeable and trustworthy, she is very honest and will tell you how it is, and I was willing to do what I had to so I could end my case. We came to an agreement with the other party that only someone like Oxalis would have been able to do in the time she did it! If you want someone who will fight for you, take her time to talk to you and explain things when you're unclear and do it in the most professional way you've found your attorney!

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2016.

Admonishment issued in FL, 2016
updated on 07/08/2020

An admonition means an attorney did something wrong but may still practice law. The Bar gives the lawyer an admonition in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Oxalis's comment: “This disciplinary action as a result of a disgruntled client who demonstrated a threatening behavior towards me. I recognize matters could've been handled differently and entered a plea with the Florida Bar instead of fighting the issue.”
