Auto Accident - HIGHLY RECOMMEND
It was an extreme pleasure of mine to be able to work with the staff here at the Dax office, not only were they highly effective in getting me my requested amount, but they exceeded my expectations in every aspect of the mission we began. Constant communication throughout the entire process, with weekly check-ins to make sure I was doing okay showed that they really cared about my personal issues I had going on with the incident that happened, they were as punctual as ever with every date they said things would happen which was a huge relief for me not having to call and get updates. I will not only highly recommend this office, but I wouldn't want anyone to go anywhere else, and at any chance I hear someone needing service it would be my pleasure to give their card out without hesitation.

Servicio Excelente !!!
Estoy muy contento con el trabajo que hiso el Licenciado Dax F. Garza. Nunca me imaginé que iba a luchar por mis derechos. Estaba muy bien estudiado y pensó que yo era importante teniendo una educación de kínder. Nunca hubiera recibir la cantidad que recibe. Siempre me informaron de mi caso. Mil gracias a su oficina y al Licenciado.

Dax Garza
Dax was very professional and easy to work with. He made me as confident and comfortable as one can be throughout the process. I thought he was very knowledgeable and his demeanor is hard to come by these days. I would recommend him to others in need of his service.

Excellent attorney
I hired Mr. Garza after my car wreck. I have worked with other attorneys in the past and he was by far the best to work with. He got me more money than I ever expected for my wreck. I had a cervical fusion one year after my wreck and he called to check on me after my surgery, he really cares about his clients. I have referred him to many of my friends and family members.

Satisfied client
After my eighteen wheeler wreck, I was unable to work. Mr. Garza helped me to get justice. He fought hard for me, he got me $75,000 in my pocket, I was able to pay of all my medical bills and get back on my feet. I would recommend Mr. Garza to anyone looking to seek justice. He always kept me informed with what was happening with my case so I never felt like I was left in the dark and he was always available to speak with.
