Brian is an Excellent and trustable Lawyer....
Brian Garmo….. What to say about Brian! He is not even a great lawyer but, he is an awesome magician who just does some type of magic there in court and everything will come to him in his favor. What he has done for me, it’s unbelievable. He handles his all the cases in a very professional manner and he is very soft talking. Because of his overall effort, all my charges were dismissed simply and for this, I think, a single word “THANK” will not be enough. But as we don’t have much words to say Thanks. I would like to say “Thanks a lot Brian to make me proud that you were my lawyer and to make my life on track….” Please keep it up with your awesome services! You have a very great future!! For others, I would highly recommend Brian. You can have a blindly trust on Brian to make a good decision, what I did! Saurabh

Outstanding Lawyer.
I contacted Brian back in December 2012 regarding a debt situation in which I had no available means to pay back in full. I was quite nervous, upset, and depressed over this entire situation. But once I sat down with Brian, he assured me that he would do everything he could to help. He really put my mind at ease by explaining the many options that were available in dealing with this problem, and always kept me abreast of what was happening. Brian was able negotiate a settlement of my $30k+ debt for $3k. Simply outstanding!!!! I cannot thank Brian enough for the great work he performed in handling my case. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone seeking the services of a great lawyer.
