Hardest Working Attorney
Kind, intelligent, patient, and he always communicated with me. I knew what was happening every step of the way. He also knew the prosecutors and the judge so I know he was looking out for me with them. Got my case dismissed and I know I can call him whenever I need a lawyer.

Made me feel safe!!
From the moment we had our consult, I knew that I was in good hands. He made me feel reassured and confident in every step of the way. I did not have to do much as he took so much into his own hands which made me feel so secure and like he genuinely cared rather than quickly going through the motions

Genuinely kind attorney!
I was so pleasantly surprised and appreciate from my first experience working with a lawyer with Nick. He was very kind to me and supportive, and treated me like an equal human being. It helped me immensely to have him working on my behalf for an incident in a state that I didn't live in. He always responded to me in a timely way, told me exactly what to expect and what I needed to do, and always gave me helpful updates. He got my case seriously reduced. Highly recommend working with Nick, especially LGBTQ+ folks!

Nick fought for me like no other lawyer would
I hired Nick after an unfortunate incident on campus where I was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors. While I was recommended several lawyers by free legal services on campus, Nick was by far the most enthusiastic and understanding of the limited budget of college students. Nick helped me understand the entire legal process, and was always available through both text and email to clarify/give updates on the whole process. Nick helped me get a favorable outcome not only with the university, but also fought aggressively with the prosecuting office to get my case dismissed. I have no doubt that the level of professionalism as well as dedication to my case that I saw with Nick is something I couldn't get anywhere else. Highly recommend!!

Solid Attorney
This attorney helped me out when I was facing a felony. From our first interview, I could tell he cared about what happened to me and my case. Whenever I called him, he was available to answer my questions or he would call me back ASAP. Nick got the DA to reduce my charge and gave me a second chance at getting my life back on track. Great lawyer.

Simply the Best
I've had my fair share of lawyers due to landlord issues, a divorce, and several business negotiations so I thought I knew what to expect with Nick. I've never met a more responsive, caring, and intelligent attorney. Every time I called him, he knew what was going on with the case and took the time to calm my nerves. He truly saved my life when I was facing a criminal charge and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.

Great Attorney at a Fraction of the Cost!
Nick is a bulldog. I was facing some possible jail time and Nick went above and beyond for me. He negotiated with the Prosecutor and eventually got my case dismissed. I'll forever be grateful to him. Plus I had no idea how inexpensive the whole thing was compared to other lawyers. A great lawyer for a really reasonable price? What's not to love? Believe me. Call him.

A kickass lawyer AND caring friend
After my domestic violence incident, I was terrified. I had never been involved in any kind of criminal case and I didn’t know what to expect. I was worried about my future, my safety, and my job for starters, but THANK GOD I called Nick. He would answer the phone directly most days and if I missed him, he would call me back shortly thereafter. He actually listened to me too. Most lawyers tend to rush you along or tune you out when they think you won’t notice. Nick made me feel like I had a real friend in my corner as well as a terrific lawyer. He’s smart, hardworking, funny, patient, and (most importantly) he gets results.

Grateful for Nick
Nick is not only professional but personable. He is thorough and knowledgeable and doesn’t make you feel like he’s just getting through cases, he actually cares about your case. I’m absolutely recommending him and his services to all of my loved ones and friends.

Above & Beyond Service
When I called Hunter Legal Group, I didn't know what to expect. I was hurt from a bad accident, I was scared, and I had no prior experience with a lawyer. Let me say that Nick Garcia made all of my fears go away; he took care of me every step of the way. Not only was he patient, knowledgable, and kind, he negotiated the hell out of my case with the other side. So now I'm just waiting for THEM to pay ME for the accident, and you know what? Nick's helping me with that too. I recommend Nick to everyone; you could not ask for better legal help than Hunter Legal Group.

Wonderful lawyer
I was extremely nervous when I ran into some legal trouble recently, especially since I was innocent of any crime. I met with Nick and he was beyond what I could have imagined. He returned my call immediately, explained every step of the legal process as it came up, and he made me feel at ease and understood throughout my case. He was so helpful to me during such an incredibly stressful time. I honestly don’t know where I would be without Nick’s help. I cannot recommend him enough.
