Amazing Attorneys !!!!!!
Wow! We are so thankful with attorneys Alma Garcia and Mr. David Breston. This two attorneys did an amazing, amazing work in the case. After getting ripped off by other attorneys that said would help and only took our money, we found this two angels, Attorneys, Alma Garcia and Mr.David Breston. They took the case and even with little time to work on the case ,they did what other attorneys did not do, they work ! .....just like they said they would! They really do what you hired them to do, not like other attorneys that only give you false hoped and leave you hanging at the end, because they dont care. This attorneys really do help people and represent them and fight for them and defent their rights! The case was tuff since it involved possession of control substances ,but Attorneys Alma Garcia and Mr. David Breston got the case dismissed!!!!!!!! I highly recommend Alma Garcia and Mr. David Breston to anyone who is in need of a good attorney because they will fight for you, and you will not regret you hired them! My only regrets are, not finding them sooner! Thank You Attorneys, Alma Garcia and David Breston!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aggravated assault dismissed
Mrs Garcia handled my case and got it dismissed at the grand jury level. I don't know where I would be with her team right now if I was found guilty of false accusations. Thanks guys!!

The Attorney You NEED on YOUR Side!
I consulted with Alma to represent me in an assault case. Initially I hired a high profile, former prosecutor turned defense atty, but felt like we weren't getting anywhere. I hired Alma to take over the case, and instantly she began working on my behalf to petition the judge to consider the facts, as well as worked closely with the prosecutor to make sure my side of the events from that night were presented and considered. She LISTENS to the facts, and researches them, following up with witnesses and officials, in order to fully present the case to the prosecutor for consideration and dismissal. Alma is VERY knowledgeable about the law and court system. She has a personal approach to effectively communicate with the other side. Thank you Alma for your hard work and perseverance. I was so glad you were on my side and appreciate all your efforts to getting this case DISMISSED. You're the best of the best!

***The Best &Trustworth Lawyer in Houston***
I hired Attorney Alma Garcia And Mr. David Breston to represent me on a DWI, Possession of a fire arm and a Failure to ID. Within a month Alma had the possession of a fire arm and failure to id DISSMISED. I did not had to go to jail for the DWI because she got me probation instead. I recommend her to anyone looking for legal help. This is my first time getting in trouble and I was skeptical about attorney that just promise you that they can help and at the end they don't help you. Trust my word for it she will help you thru all the legal process. I highly recommend her to any one!!! She will also work with you on a payment plan if needed. Thank You so much Alma & David Breston. Hugo M.

I feel Blessed
My name is Lonnie. I feel self-compelled and obligated to express how wonderful my Legal team has been for both myself and my family. From the hilarious good-natured sarcasm of Mr. David Breston (which helped keep me calm, at ease, and optimistic), to the relentless fight from both Ms. Elizabeth Alexander and Ms. Alma Garcia (both of whom would not allow me to just roll over and let the state have its way). I feel tremendously blessed to have had these people introduced into my life, to help me through this isolated incident. So many legal representatives will go only as far as your dollar will take you. Not only were they willing to work with me on my payments, but they also continued to fight hard when the payments where done. These people will have my business for as long as they are available, and I would recommend Mr. Breston, Ms. Alexander, and Ms. Garcia to anyone looking for a strong, knowledgeable legal defense team, with great customer service and care and concern.

Execellent Laywer
I would recommend Alma to other. She always gave me hope that everything was going to be okay. And everything did go well, and now I am thankful because she help me reach my goal of becoming citizen. Also in the criminal court and in immigration she represented me. Thanks so much Alma for the great job.

Getting out of Trouble
Got in a little misunderstanding with the wife. Needed an attorney to have the charges dismissed. Found Alma on the internet. She was able to see me right away and was able to explain why I would want the charges to go away. After a few months of court dates she was able to get the charges dismissed. She is Great.

Ms. Garcia called me on the day of my preliminary hearing to ask me to tell her “what happened.” To make matters worse, this was 20 minutes after the required hearing time. I have never met her and was surprised and disappointed to learn that she would be handling my hearing 20 minutes after the hearing was set to begin. I did not hire her. I hired her associate. I was not told in advance nor consulted at all prior to the hearing. I was blindsided. She had no information about my case, and was completely unprepared. The prosecutor essentially walked all over her. She had no confidence, stammered and used the filler “ummm” more than a professional should. The only reason the hearing was reset and not sent directly to trial was because I interjected (which I was technically not supposed to do, but it worked). The prosecutor excused herself and said she would rejoin later to give me time to discuss the case with Ms. Garcia. She had not reviewed the evidence which I had shared weeks prior. Once I informed her of this, and the prosecutor rejoined the hearing, the date was reset. From my experience, she was not the caliber of attorney I would have chosen for myself. After doing thorough research, I hired her associate based on what I found. With this incident, I felt as if I was given the bait and switch routine. I am deeply disappointed and disillusioned by this. I should at, at minimum, been notified well in advance and given the opportunity to meet her prior to my hearing. At best, I should have been represented by the attorney that I specifically hired. I expect better at my next hearing and will update my review accordingly.
