IMPRESSIVE
I had a case of posession of marijuana in Montgomery county jail for less than 2 ounces I was dropped a felony to a misdemeanor and served 1 year probation. He was even there for me when I was revoked my probation in 2009 and although this review was due a long time ago. It's always better late than ever to tell everyone that Gilbert Garcia is a great lawyer and is very well known. He will fight for you!

Gilbert Garcia law firm / Knowledge and Class
Attorney Gilbert Garcia consulted me as a walk-in with about a day notice for jury trial case. Fortunately he was available and ready with only a moments notice. His price was fair and reasonable, extremely less than other attorneys that I knew in the area. He got my case/charge dismissed. Gilbert you were God sent and truly a blessing. Seriously nice to have met you Gilbert !

Common sense approach
We are thoroughly pleased with not only Gilbert Garcia but the whole staff. They make you feel comfortable in what is a foreign world. For us the case was dismissed-- justice was served. The smile on Gilberts face was great--the relief on my sons face was beyond priceless. KUDOS for all.

Best in Montgomery County
I was referred to Mr. Garcia by another prominent attorney in Houston. He stated that Mr. Garcia was the best in Montgomery County. He was correct because Mr. Garcia exceeded all expectations. He was professional, accessible, answered phone calls, and returned phone calls immediately. The case was dismissed and I could not be any more satisfied. Many lawyers get a very bad rap, but I can honestly say that your are in good hands with Mr. Garcia. I would like to thank the entire staff at Gilbert G. Garcia Law.

Guidance and resolution, no runaround.
Gilbert and his team represented me in a DWI case. There were issues in the various aspects of the event and the charge did not match the reality but nor was it entirely untrue either (a case of not all things being black and white unfortunately...the grey areas seem to be where we often find ourselves). However, sometimes there is little to be done but put the best foot forward. Towards these ends Gilbert did a fine job telling me what I needed to know and not just what I wanted to know. This makes all the difference and helped me approach the entire process with a sense of control and understanding. In the end the final result was quite positive and a fair administration of our laws so not only did he well represent me, but a trial was avoided and life can now go on. Throughout it all his team was very accommodating and I always always was able to contact somebody with questions and/or get immediate feedback. They take very seriously the service aspect of their role as well as the representation of your case. I cannot here say that the results will always go your way but I suspect whatever your situation is, it is likely Gilbert can get you the best results that are possible. Put all your cards on the table though, let him know what he is working with. You'll thank him in the end.

Far better terms than I could have hoped for
My traffic violation case was overwhelmingly against me and Mr. Garcia negotiated terms that were far better than I could have hoped for. He was unafraid of taking my case to trial (if necessary), straight-forward and to the point. When he and/or his staff required documents and information, I got them quickly for them to use. If I ever need legal help again and Mr. Garcia specializes in it, I will look to hire him immediately. I am thankful to God that Mr. Garcia took my case and for the good outcome.

Mr. Garcia exceed our expectations!
Mr. Garcia agreed to try to clean separate felony and misdemeanor charges off our son's record at a discounted price for the two. He further explained the errors made by others in filing and reviewing the charges, and was realistic in his assessment of our chances for the judges to agree to the motion for non-disclosure. I believe it was his knowledge and professionalism that the motion for the felony non-disclosure was granted last year. He advised we wait until this year for the second charge, and I just received an email from his legal assistant. Mr. Garcia had filed a motion for nondisclosure, the DA agreed, the judge signed it, and it was attached to the email! My son didn't even need to appear in court. Mr. Garcia is also very personable, and I highly recommend him.

Extremely good advice, strong knowledge of court system and well networked
Where do I begin with recommending Mr. Gilbert as your attorney...he represented my 17 year old son in a case where it was dismissed from the courts. He genuinely cared about our situation and my sons well being/future, and gave us excellent direction on how to handle the case. We followed his advice and every suggestion on what my son should do in the interim while waiting on our court date which was what I believe to be the reason why Mr. Gilbert was able to do his job and help my son. He is very educated about the Montgomery Court system and well networked within as well. I highly recommend him.

My office genuinely cares about your son's future, and I am glad that I was able to protect his record as he grows to be a hard-working, young man. It was a pleasure to defend your son and to help you with any questions you had!

He was excellent
Mr. Garcia did exactly what he said he would do. He and his team were great to work with. Although he can't promise a perfect outcome he genuinely does the best he can. He returns calls and his staff answers the phone. They remebered me every time I called so I did not feel like I was one of a million, it was far more individual then that. My case was dismissed so naturally I think he's the best. They were pro-active to remind me of what I needed to do to be prepared for Court

2 criminal charges dismissed - exceptional team!
Mr. García is invaluable in achieving the best outcome for your case. Not only is he knowledgeable and focused, he also has associates who provide the same level of service to assist him. His staff is professional, prompt, and "human" in dealing with you directly. They are all exceptional and a pleasure to work with. Furthermore, Ms. Fran was impressive and very helpful, justifying the money I was spending. Court waiting times were minimal, communication was clear, informative and prompt! This legal team was worth the money spent. I was charged in late August and Mr. Garcia's team achieved two dismissals by March wth no problem because he knows his stuff!

Thank you for such a thoughtful review, and I am ecstatic that you were happy with the staff as well. We do understand that criminal charges can be some of the most difficult times in a person's life, and I am glad that you felt "human" during interactions! It was an honor to defend your cases.

Outstanding Attorneys and Law Firm
To the point, knowledgeable, patient and worth the fees. They got one charge dismmissed and the other ended in probation. All are very efficient in returning calls and surprisingly have got call backs . An eye opener for some Attorneys who cannot even make it to court on time or answer calls on court day and running late.

Mr. Garcia put me at ease during a bad situation. He is down to earth and listens to his client's wishes. His staff always kept me up to date and ALWAYS answered the telephone. Many times, Mr. Garcia would answer the phone personally. I have obtained Mr. Garcia's services twice. Mr. Garcia and his staff helped make a bad situation better.

2nd Time I've Hired Mr Garcia
"Best defense attorney in Montgomery County" Gilbert fit me in for a consult the same day I got out of jail. He reviewed my papers, and got out his law book and showed/explained in detail what I was dealing with. Then he asked me what happened. He did not judge, he simply asked clarifying questions. He told me exactly what to do and when to do it. Before every court date he met with me prior and we discussed what could happen. I never was un-informed. I felt he personally cared about the outcome of my case. On the last day, we spent 5 hours in court and I could tell he was negotiating and working the DA. He got me such a good, and unexpected deal, I cried. I was also dealing with a custody case at the same time, and every family lawyer I consulted with said "I had the best in the county" or "I couldn't have chosen a better defense". His staff is also amazing. His legal assistant, Fran, was very easy to email and get an update from, or ask questions to. Gilbert calls you back the same day, if he isn't able to take your phone call. And as mentioned in title, this is the second time I've hired Gilbert, and I am recommend him 10,000%. And lastly, he offered a 3 month pay off plan for his retainer fee. He really makes it possible to go on with life, after these life altering events happen.

Justice was served.
Gilbert was the perfect attorney for me to find when I really needed a seasoned counselor. I can not imagine a better outcome than what he was able to obtain for me. Not just with the dismissal, he was great throughout the process.

Case dismissal
Mr. Garcia requested a case dismissal because it was nine years old. Law enforcement did not contact me during those nine years to inform me of the accusation. The judge granted a dismissal because I did not get a trial within a reasonable length of time as prescribed by law.

A Passionate, Professional, Experienced Law Firm...Period!
I knew I was going to be in 'Good Hands' after reading Mr. Garcia's resume.....his 'Age', his Educational Background at two of the finest Universities here in the U.S.,....Notre Dame & University of Texas. Then there is his 'Staff' at the 'Gilbert G. Garcia Law Firm'........'Debbie'/'Chris'/'Laurie' and probably others that I'm unaware of. Mr. Garcia and his team ALL work in Unison together, and ALWAYS communicating with each other AND with me, the Client! I was NEVER in the dark. Responses to my emails were not only prompt, but, usually within minutes 'The Same Day!', and the same with Mr. Garcia himself.....as Debbie told me initially,..."Gilbert Loves Emails". There was absolutely no doubt in my mind while Mr. Garcia was representing myself/case that he was putting 'His All' into it. I could go on and on with 'Praise', but, simply put, look no further if you are in need of Total Passionate, Honest, Professional, Experienced Legal Representation.....GO DIRECTLY TO THE 'GILBERT G. GARCIA LAW FIRM'. Mr. Garcia is highly respected and 'KNOWN' by most court systems, and THAT SAYS A LOT! THANK YOU Mr. Garcia AND STAFF for resolving my case.
