IT'S NOT EASY TO FIND AN ATTORNEY THAT YOU LIKE AND TRUST DURING A VERY CHALLENGING TIME IN YOUR LIFE. WHEN SOMETHING URGENT HAPPENS, GIVE US A CALL AND WE WILL DO EVERYTHING WE CAN TO HELP YOU OUT. WE PRIDE OURSELVES ON BEING VERY APPROACHABLE AND EASY TO TALK TO SO WE CAN GET YOU THE BEST RESULTS.

My name is Lemuel Garcia (call me Lem), and I was born and raised in Southern California. My parents came to the United States from the Philippines to give their three sons (I'm the youngest) better opportunities. My dad was a civil engineer and my mom ran her own hair salon. We didn't have much money growing up, but we had a lot - we had each other.

I can't say that I always wanted to be a lawyer, but I can say that I always wanted to help other people and make my parents proud of me. This hasn't changed at all. I'm proud to be a personal injury lawyer and help people when they really need someone they can trust to do what is best for them. 

I opened Lem Garcia Law soon after law school so I could be of service to others without having to answer to anyone else. I wanted to have the opportunity to take cases big and small and to make decisions without just thinking about how much money the office will be making. Essentially, I can treat others the way that I would like to be treated. 

With this principle in mind, and the outstanding staff to see it through, I am proud to say that Lem Garcia law has grown into a law firm with an outstanding reputation for excellent results and fantastic service. 

When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my wife and two daughters. If there's any time left over, you can find me at the gym playing basketball or lifting weights.

ABOVE AND BEYOND
I was run over by a car and made the mistake of talking to the culprits insurance and leaving recorded statements without representation. The attorneys I consulted with prior to Lem either didn't want to take my case or pushed hard for a lawsuit. Lem was a last minute google search and thank God I found him. He returned my calls and texts right away (usually within an hour) and even offered to commute to my house when I couldn't come to him. But what I most appreciated about Lem was his character and professionalism. With prior attorneys I spoke to, I often felt intimidated and pressured to make decisions they felt were right but I perhaps didn't feel completely comfortable with. It was a relief to meet Lem because he always explained things thoroughly and made sure I understood everything. He would make suggestions and help me weigh out the pros and cons but ultimately leave all the decisions to me. Lem's most impressive feat, however, was attaining the MAXIMUM SETTLEMENT POSSIBLE for my case. After other attorneys had told me a lawsuit was my only option he went ABOVE AND BEYOND and not only got me the max settlement without having to go to court but proceeded to call the representatives of every. single. outstanding account I had related to my accident and negotiated a lower cost for EVERYTHING. I am 100% confident I received the maximum compensation possible with Lem. My accident was the most traumatic and stressful situation I've ever been through but Lem helped lesson the burden tremendously. He is an excellent attorney and a great person to have on your team!

Good Guy
Easy to contact, listens to what your saying, doesn't rush you. Makes sure he gets all the details, and explains thouroughly. Easy to contact, can see him right away, never a long wait. This is our second time having to contact him for his services unfortunately, but we know we're in the good hands. If you ever get in an accident always get a lawyer! And always choose Lem!

Pleasantly Surprised
I’ve never needed a lawyer for anything, but John who was assigned to the case and the administrative team lead by Angela shattered every negative stereotype I'd heard about lawyers. They were always polite, professional and a pleasure to work with. The communication and follow through was amazing! My sincere gratitude and appreciation for the time and effort of the Lem Garcia Law team which lead to a great outcome. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Peace of Mind
I was in a car accident that totalled my car and left me with minor injuries. Mr. Garcia was referred to me by a family friend and we spoke on the phone and was genuinely caring about my situation. He made sure that I took all the right steps from the point of the accident and throughout the conversations between my insurance company and the other party involved. Not only did he guide me and my family into decisions that helped and protected us, Lemuel Garcia made the whole situation feel calm and less stressful. This kept all of our minds at ease and I can't quantify how much that was worth it to me. I was really lucky that he was referred to us!

Knowledgable expert
Attorney Lem Garcia has deep insight on how to properly handle personal injury claims. His advice regarding finding the proper medical provider and not speaking to any insurance adjuster regarding my injuries was very helpful. In addition, he understands that any injury claim must be handled appropriately with the policy limits. Other attorneys may let the case get "out of control" and you make be left with endless bills to pay or very angry doctors at the end...

Great experience!
I was involved in a car accident last year with my wife. We were at a stop light on our way to Costco for our monthly shopping and all of a sudden we were hit from behind. It was a very hard hit and terribly freightening. I went to Lem for his counsel and from day one he took care of my wife and I. He made sure we received the treatment we needed, he constantly checked up on us, and explained to us what was going on with the insurance company every step of the way. From getting our car fixed to making sure our doctor visits were taken care of. Overall, the experience was great! I would recommend Lem and his team to my family, friends, and anyone I know. Thanks again Lem!
