***YOUR SEARCH FOR THE BEST ATTORNEY HAS ENDED***
Since you are reading AVVO, you must be looking for an attorney. TRUST ME, stop looking, call Jaime's office and RETAIN HIM NOW. Jaime J. Garcia, III is my ATTORNEY FOR LIFE.
I speak from the voice of experience with Jaime over a grueling 3 1/2 year, complex court battle involving four courts and nine Judges.
I fired my first attorney who did nothing but take a non-refundable 10K retainer and refused to refund a dime when I had enough of not actually being represented by a competent lawyer who cared.
By the time I met with Jaime, what started out in 1 court, had escalated into 3. I was being attacked from every direction, my life hung in the balance, I was desperate. Jaime made NO false promises.
Jaime is straight-forward, FAIR WITH HIS BILLING and in my case, explained in his very first correspondence to opposing counsel, their attempts and simply running up bills is not in the best interest of any party.
Jaime is amazing in court. He is always very well prepared. He met with me prior to the multitude of major court dates and explained what to expect so my anxiety level was not through the roof. I was a person with no prior experience with the court system and my cases were all interconnected which intensified the fear of the unknown.
Jaime has an extensive knowledge of the law and knew how to utilize case law to argue his points. He worked tirelessly preparing for depositions and trials.
His compassion was especially appreciated by me and my family. He got the job done in a very professional way.
If you want someone who will work hard for you, you found your guy in Jaime J. Garcia, III.
Jaime - words cannot express how grateful I am for you & your tireless work to prove the truth and 'climb Mt. Everest'. You DID IT! Sincerely, thank you.

I hired Jaime and his firm to represent me in my divorce and child custody case. This guy is top notch with an excellent rate and tremendous follow up skills. Not at any point in time did I not know what was going on with my case. Jamie informed me of the process and I informed him what I wanted to accomplish. He hit out of the ball park! Not only did I get EXACTLY what I asked for but it was how quick he got it done also. I know he has many cases to handle but Jaime and his office made me feel my was the only one that matters. He takes pride in what he does and his knowledge of the law was outstanding,and boy it showed. Now my daughter is with her daddy safe and where she belongs. Thanks GLP

I retained Jaime to represent a client I had in Florida. I see a lot of references to Jaime's handling the case as a lawyer and a business. These are the qualities that helped my client make the tough decisions. The client wanted to know the cost of services to better guide the path of the case and make the right decision. Jaime's experience and knowledge in this regard not only led to a great result, but it also led to an efficient and cost-effective use of the client's money. I will always refer client's to Jaime because of his dedication, service and knowledge of his cases.

The first time I ever talked to Mr. Garcia, I was immediately scared of him. I had never been in trouble before, and I had a lot of questions. He told me to basically shut up, and that nothing was going to happen by continuing to call him when nothing was going on. And he was right. Jaime never led me down a wrong path, never built up unrealistic expectations. Many times people would ask me "What did your attorney say about the case? How confident is he that he's going to win?" These were never the types of questions Jaime answered. He never said anything along the lines of "We have about a 50% chance of winning." To Jaime, the most important thing is that the client knows and is involved in the legal process. He told me point blank that at most, if I was convicted, I would be looking at 80 years in prison. No one wants to hear that; all someone wants to hear is how they're going to get out of it and how their attorney is going to win. That's exactly the type of attorney Jaime is. He is a monster. He is ruthless when pressured, and will stop at nothing to give you the best form of legal representation. 80 years to anyone looks like a daunting task. To Jaime, it's nothing more than a challenge that he knows he can overcome. In our unique situation, the Judge that presided over our case only gave us 3 weeks to prepare for our trial. The judge went against a deal that Jaime and the prosecutor had made concerning this case and another one I am facing, and told Jaime point blank that he had 3 weeks to do what most attorneys take months to do. We were speechless. Jaime included. But after our momentary lapse, Jaime picked himself up and nothing was stopping him. Immediately depositions were filed, schedules were changed. Days were planned out where nothing but my case would be on his desk, his sole focus for winning. And through it all, Jaime continued to be a human, apologizing again and again for things that were out of his realm of apology. He had no reason to apologize for the Judge's misconduct, but he did anyway, as he saw the strain it put onto me and my family. But that's just the type of person Jaime is. He doesn't see the client as a criminal; he's sees them as a person he can relate to, someone who is scared and unsure of how to traverse the legal grounds, who need his guidance and nurturing care to help them get the best result. And that's just what he did. In a little over a week, Jaime had crafted a well supported defense, backed by the law enforcement misconduct and preferential treatment that my case saw. He would email us quickly without a moment's notice, asking us a small but useful question to add to his ever growing defense. His defense grew so strong in fact, that the State began to waver. From a 10 year prison deal, they went down to probation. "No way" I told Jaime. "I want withheld adjudication." He did what he always did, informed me about the law. He told me that the only way he get that was if the prosecutor was going to give it to him. It was out of his hands. Or so I was led to believe. Later that night I get an urgent call from him. "The State wants an answer now. 5 years sex offender probation. 5 years regular probation. Terminate after 7 years. Withheld adjudication." Everything I had asked for. Done. Done by a miracle worker. From 80 years, to 10. to simple probation with no criminal record attached once the probation was done, Jaime Garcia did something that people only read about in mythology. In under 10 days, Jaime crafted, pressured, and won my case exactly the way I wanted it. Without going into depositions, without deposing anyone, he did what no one else could do. He won based off his character.
The State may think they won this battle. I did take their plea deal. But given the circumstances, the real winner was myself, and Jaime. He has always been there for me, as my attorney, a friend, and in some ways a brother. Call this man, and make him a part of your family. Thank you Jaime.

Best firm ever. They told me from the beginning the process and timeframe. Mr. Garcia outlined the battles and kept calling and emailing me on the case. At the end Mr. Garcia was right as he got the case dismissed by filing a Stand You're Ground motion and proved the person blaming me was wrong and a liar. Mr. Garcia tore him up in court. I recommend them to all. They also worked with me on payment. Love this firm.

I utilized Mr. Garcia's services for my divorce. It was as smooth as a divorce could be. Both himself and his staff were professional and nice. They kept me informed and assisted me with every step along the path of my divorce. I would email Mr. Garcia and get an immediate response, no matter what time of the day/night. I highly recommend the Garcia Law Group for Divorces and Family law matters.

I hired Mr Garcia to defend me from a restraining order. my ex-friend lied about me. Mr Garcia caught her in so many lies the judge was shaking his head. I was scared and Mr Garcia calmed my nerves and worked with me the night before for about 2 hours late in the night. We proved my ex friend was lying and now Mr Garcia saved my job.
