The lawyer Renee Garner is very professional and always kept me informed step by step of my case, always very pleasant and with faith in GOD she always encouraged me and told me that she would almost be favorable, there were many charges against me, some even with points on my license and another with charges with immigration,
But she fought very hard and with GOD first, everything turned out very favorable since they dropped all the charges against me and with a very small fine the case was closed
My experience with lawyer Garner was very pleasant and I sincerely trust that she will fight for me and for you, I recommend lawyer Renee Garden 100% and I believe that she will do everything to make your case equal to or better than mine.

Grateful for Renee's outstanding legal guidance
I recently had the pleasure of working with Attorney Renee Gardner, and am grateful for her outstanding legal guidance. Ms. Gardner proved to be a consummate professional with an unparalleled commitment to her clients. What sets Ms. Gardner apart is not only her extensive legal knowledge but also her ability to convey complex information in a clear, logical, and understandable manner. She took the time to thoroughly explain the nuances of my legal matter, providing me with the confidence and assurance needed to make informed decisions. One of the standout qualities that make Ms. Gardner an exceptional attorney is her approachability and genuine interest in connecting with clients on a human and personal level. Despite the intricacies of the legal process, she made every effort to ensure that I felt comfortable and well-informed throughout the entire journey. This personal touch significantly eased the stress associated with navigating a legal issue. Ms. Gardner's pleasant demeanor and strong communication skills fostered a positive working relationship, making the entire experience remarkably smooth. It was evident that she genuinely cared about my well-being and the successful resolution of my case. In conclusion, I wholeheartedly recommend Attorney Renee Gardner to anyone seeking legal representation.

Above and beyond
Renee went above and beyond to assist me with my issues concerning a complaint on auto motive repair done by a licensed dealer. Renee wrote a demand letter to attempt to get a refund, and small claim court filing documents. I want to express my deepest gratitude for this caring and very knowledgeable attorney.

Demand Letter & Small Claim Case
Renee is efficient and professional! I've hired many contractor's over the years, but when a local company failed to repair the work listed on the estimate and then stonewalled me for weeks, I hired Renee who advised me on the law and the company's responsibilities in following through on their contractual promises. She wrote a Demand Letter that finally prodded the company into responding. I'm not familiar with contract law or how to file a small claims case, but Renee made it easy to understand and expedited the process in a respectful and efficient time frame. Hiring Renee gave me confidence to proceed in small claims court well-prepared and confident.

Issuance Of Demand Letter (Auto Dealership)
I was sold an auto warranty from a dealership; only to later find out when I actually needed warranty covered repairs completed, that the 5 thousand dollar auto warranty sold was completely fabricated! I reached out to Renee to discuss my legal rights as a consumer and after she assisted with drafting and serving a demand letter the dealership reached out to me, after weeks of not returning my calls and being placed on hold for several minutes at a time before being forwarded to a voicemail. I would highly recommend Renee Gardner's legal services as she is efficient, extremely thorough, effective, knowledgeable, and gets the job done! She is worth every penny!

Bright and detailed lawyer who works for excellence
Renee helped me prepare for my small claims case. Her demand letter was extremely detailed and she regularly asked for feedback if I was pleased. She also helped me on an emergency basis the last hour before I appeared in court. I was freaking out but she calmly prepped me and had me practice presenting my arguments to the judge. I won my case!

Easy to work with, professional, thorough and quick to act.
Reached out and was contacted by Renee same day, we consulted via the phone and she got right to work putting together the required info needed from me in over to begin the next steps with my legal situation. I was gone over the weekend and let her know I would be able to get her the information Monday. Renee sent out the document I needed same day. Do not hesitate to reach out for any and all or your potential needs. Your in great hands, I hope I have no further legal issues but if I do I would not hesitate to use Renee again.

Dear Patrick - What a wonderful review! I was happy to produce and send out what you needed in very short order. It's gratifying to rapidly meet certain clients' needs with their legal situations. But, I have you to thank. You made it easy for me, by giving me exactly what I needed, to get you what you needed. Auto accidents (serious personal injury and wrongful death) and other more complex legal representation can take years to resolve. But, I also very much enjoy helping folks such as yourself, whose legal situations can potentially resolve relatively quickly. Feel free to reach out to me again, should the need arise. Thank you, Renee

I had the opportunity of talking with Attorney Renee Yvonne Gardner, who gave me excellent advice. Within minutes of talking with Ms. Gardner you can tell she is very seasoned in her profession and very honest. I am happy that I now have an attorney that I can recommend to friends, that I feel confident in my recommendation. I would suggest if you are considering hiring Attorney Renee Yvonne Gardner, do so at the very beginning of your case.. Talk to her before you talk to any one regarding your personal injury.

Renée is smart, friendly, and was very helpful.
Renée Gardner of Gardner Law provided a consultation to me regarding an auto accident. She wasn’t able to accept my case, but it’s important for you to know — when you have a case that might need to be litigated, time is of the essence. So, DO NOT WAIT! If you live in The Bay Area, you’ll discover that you’ll really want to have an attorney in The Bay Area represent you; and you should be speaking with the attorney handling your case, not a case manager, or any other person representing the firm. Renée is smart, friendly, and was very helpful. If I ever find that I need an attorney in the future, I won’t wait to contact Renée.

What an amazing human!
After dealing with my house burning down, a corrupt insurance company, a mortgage company that mishandled a loan modification for years, then the blunt force head trauma death after my uncle's dialysis stent was cut out of his chest at home where he was being abused, the mishandling of his estate by a corrupt attorney that my mom had hired, then my mom's suspicious and untimely death where this attorney took control of the money from both estates while my mother was on her deathbed, I reached out to Renee to help me with my house that I might be at risk of losing as a result of corrupt attorneys. Renee had answered one of my questions from a couple years ago on Avvo and when I saw it again today and saw all her reviews I thought I would reach out to see if she could help with any of this. My mom and Uncle were both extremely beloved and honest attorneys and my experience with attorneys after their deaths has been horrendous. Renee is truly that one in a million who cares even if she can't handle the type of case you have. She will give you support and is just one of the rare caring humans on earth who you can tell wants to help people. She is the antithesis of what most people think of when they think of an attorney. May she be blessed with everything that she deserves. If you are fortunate enough to have her represent you, it is apparent she will fight tooth and nail for justice.

So fortunate to have been referred to Renée
I was recommended to contact Renée Gardner by one of her attorney colleagues for an auto accident case. They mentioned Renée is relentless, and on point, thorough all the way to the end. They were 100% correct! She worked one-on-one with me every step of the way. Renée went above and beyond to assist me! She is extremely hard working, relentless, thorough and took great care me. I can’t say enough positive things about Renée and highly recommend her to others! She will impress you throughout the entire process should you be fortunate to have her represent you.

Extrely helpful beyond expectation
While my needs were not Ms Gardner's specialty she went out of her way to provide advice and extra time to try to find another attorney. I have not seen this kind of interest in any other attorney that I have recently known or worked with. A truly refreshing experience that is, unfortunately, rare in the profession. I only wish she could have served my current need. I would recommend her without reservation.

"I reached out to Ms. Gardner for help with a hypothetical legal issue based on her Avvo bio and practice areas. Although she was very busy that day, Ms. Gardner returned my call within a couple of hours and took the time necessary to locate case law that might assist me with the legal issue that I was researching. As an attorney, I can say that she is very smart and highly ethical. I highly endorse her."
