Mario E. de la Garza

also known as Mario E. de la Garza

About me

MARIO E. DE LA GARZA, a graduate of Harvard University and Northwestern University School of Law, represents victims of catastrophic personal injury in a variety of contexts, including wrongful death, traumatic brain injury, industrial, workplace, and premises injuries, trucking and serious automobile accidents, civil rights violations, and medical malpractice.


NOTE: Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.


Mr. de la Garza began his legal career as an appellate lawyer at Haynes and Boone, LLP, where he drafted appellate briefs and trial motions in complex civil matters. He then gained international transaction experience at Bracewell & Giuliani, LLP. In early 2009, Mr. de la Garza decided to focus his efforts on representing people who have been wronged by the negligence of others. Toward this end, he joined Fleming & Associates, a nationally recognized class and mass action firm, where he worked on a variety of matters including complex pharmaceutical litigation. In February of 2013, Mr. de la Garza joined Tucker, Barnes, Garcia & de la Garza, P.C. as a shareholder.  Then in March of 2015, Mr. de la Garza joined Garcia de la Garza, LLP, where he continues to represent victims of catastrophic personal injury.

    I endorse this lawyer. Mario de la Garza is skilled, creative, ethical, experienced, hard-working, and has a compassion for his clients that makes him devoted to achieving their goals. I supervised Mario at the beginning of his career and have continued to consult with him ever since. Although I have 42 years of experience and was a judge for 19 years, I now often seek his counsel on my cases.
