La Lic. Claudia Garcia es una abogada profesional en todo el sentido de la palabra. En uno de los momentos más difíciles de mi vida, enfrentando una separación después de una relación de 31 años, tuve la fortuna de encontrar a una abogada seria, sensata, honesta, con sentido común, impecable en sus consejos y acciones (virtudes difíciles de encontrar todas juntas). Claudia me ayudó a encontrar orden y paz en un proceso legal tan difícil de enfrentar. Recomiendo ampliamente a la Licenciada Garcia a quién estaré eternamente agradecida por su valiosa ayuda. Con profunda admiración y respeto.

Knowledgeable Lawyer
Claudia was very lawyer to work with, from the beginning she explain how she works and how she charges. That made me feel very trustworthy with Mrs. Garcia. She always kept me informed of everything was going on and the most important thing is that she has passion for what she represent and she very knowledgeable as a lawyer. Any calls I made or email I wrote to her was always answer the same day or next day, she was always responsive. In the end of my divorce she took care of everything and everything went as was plan, she was always punctual for her appointments with me and always showed to court with me on time which was very important to me since I had attorneys that I had in the pass that did even showed up to court. Overall I was very pleased with Mrs. Garcia and I will referred her to a friend, because I am sure she will threat my friends the same she threated me with respect.
