Great Lawyer
Mr. Guzman represented me in a custody case. He took on the case on such short notice, with the first court hearing held 2 weeks after being hired and stood by my side for the year and a half that it took to resolve my case. In all that time, I never had an issue getting ahold of Mr Guzman, he was always a phone call or text message away. He answered every single question I had and always kept me informed with whatever was going on. He was straightforward and honest about everything. He made it feel like my case was just as important to him as it was to me. There were points where I wanted to throw in the towel and settle, and him being the amazing lawyer that he is, knew what was fair and what I deserved and wouldn’t let me and I will forever be grateful to him. Long story short, he is a lawyer that you can put your complete trust in, he is the lawyer that you want in your corner and I will definitely be recommending him to anyone that needs legal help. Javier, it was a pleasure being your client. Thank you for everything. You went above and beyond and I will never forget it. Another W for the Guzman Law Firm!!

Best lawyer ever
He helped me get my freedom back. When I heard from other lawyers that I would not win my case and for me to take culpability of something I never did instead of fighting. Mr. Guzman helped me see how other people work and showed me how different he is to other lawyers. If you are I need of representation, count on him. That’s is more than anyone else would do for you.

Business LLC
I needed to form a business, but I wasn't sure what type of entity was the correct one. After meeting with Javier Guzman, he clearly explained the pros and cons of each different type of entity, so I was able to make the best decision. In the future, I would not hesitate to contact Javier Guzman on any legal matter.

Justice
I went to court without representation and lost. Javier reviewed the case and made a motion for a new case. In the end Javier saved me and my family time and money.
