Although responses were not as quick as I would have liked (due to him being in court often) he made sure we were both updated on the case when it came time. He went above and beyond obtaining me a video chat, due to my situation out of state. He was well prepared in court and was even praised on his exhibit layout by the serving judge. I felt comfortable and completely at ease working together and would highly recommend him for child custody cases.

Mr. Garcia is an excellent attorney. He fought hard for me and got me everything I wanted, including an attorney fee award of $7,500. That means, my ex had to pay for my attorney's fees. My ex was not too happy about that and is probably one of the bad reviewers on AVVO. I absolutely recommend him and would always return. His fees are reasonable for what you are getting!

I endorse this lawyer. He is the consummate professional who has been in practice in the Inland Empire for nearly three decades. He is highly respected by his peers and among judicial officers. His clients are well-served by his zealous representation.
