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.

Renee goes above and beyond what I believe a typical attorney would do
I was very pleased with all the work, time and dedication that Renée put into my legal case. She went above and beyond. I would definitely recommend Gardner Law’s services to any friends and/or acquaintances that would require legal services, as I believe that Renée would truly try to assist as much as she can.

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.

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.

Excellent Attorney
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. I am Forever Grateful for Renée and the attorney who referred me! Thank 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.

Excellent experience
Renee graciously took time to listen to my situation, offer me guidance, and provide resources - even though my case actually should have been referred to a different lawyer type. She was very empathetic to my situation and helped guide me towards a potentially more successful outcome than what I could have achieved on my own.

Knowledgeable, Professional, Client Advocate
Dedicated, knowledgeable, client centered, transparent, tenacious, and honest are words that describe Renee. She is amazing. I began working with her after unsuccessfully trying to negotiate a settlement on my own - a mistake. Renee has the skills needed to work with insurance companies and has her client's best interest in mind at every step. Renee willingly accepted the challenge. Renee is thorough in collecting documents, documenting all relevant facts, and negotiating with insurance companies. She kept me informed through every step of the process and truly has the client’s best interest at heart. Her strategic skills were clearly demonstrated on the case settled. She is a 10+! Settling a case it not for the "lay" person. Working with Renee reduces stress and worth the fee.

Response from Renee Gardner July 14, 2021
(Response left with permission of Héctor Jara) From from start to finish, I strive to provide aggressive legal representation that is both caring to my clients and gets results. Thank you very much for letting me know that I lived up to my goal for the Jara Family. Insurance companies can run from responsibility. Nothing can bring back lives lost, like what happened in your wrongful death auto accident case. Justice can be served when wrongdoers are held accountable and made to pay for what they have done. Your kind words mean a lot to me. I am here for you, if ever need anything else.

5 stars my attorney Renee Yvonne Gardner is honest and persistent. 5 estrellas la Abogada Gardner es honesta y persistente
I strongly recommend lawyer Renee Yvonne Gardner because she is a very good honest lawyer who never gave up on my accident case. Thank God who put her in my path. She speaks Spanish which is important to me.–I held my grandsons hand crossing the street a man crashed into me hard my grandson screamed and cried the man broke my leg. I was in a lot of pain. The man lied to the police he said my grandson ran out into traffic.–Right away when I hired lawyer Gardner she had an investigator interview two witnesses who both saw the man hit me when I had the green light. Both said my grandson never ran out into traffic.–I hired lawyer Gardner because I trusted her from the start. I was right she is a very trustworthy lawyer. I’ve never seen persistence like hers never tired of fighting never gave up.–The man who hit me had little insurance my medical bills were high I was in pain. Lawyer Gardner filed a lawsuit to try and get me more money. Within a week after she filed my lawsuit the man who ran me over gave his house to his son for $0.–So Lawyer Gardner changed my lawsuit to demand money for this fraud. The mans son and daughter in law lived in Kentucky. But still lawyer Gardner fought to make these people pay me more money out of their pockets. And they did pay me every cent. It was a hard long fight but she did it.–Lawyer Gardner told me that when someone does something on purpose like when the man gave away his house for $0 most insurance does not cover it. Both lawyers on the other side pushed my lawyer tried to get me to lose my case to not get paid. But my lawyer never ever gave up. Then she got hospital bill down so I got more money in my pocket.–I tell my family and friends if they need a lawyer to fight and never give up, call my lawyer Renee Yvonne Gardner. May God always bless and protect her.–Recomiendo mucho a la abogada Renee Yvonne Gardner porque es muy buena muy honesta que nunca se rindio de mi caso. Estoy agradecido de que Dios la puso en mi camino. Ella habla español que es muy importante para mi.–Tomados de la mano de mi nietito cruzando la calle cuando un hombre me atropello. Me choco bien fuerte mi nieto grito y lloro roto mi pierna sentia mucho dolor. Luego el hombre mintio a la policia dijo que mi nieto habia corrido por la calle.–Enseguida, cuando la contrate, mi abogada contrato a un investigador que entrevisto a los dos testigos que confirmaron que el hombre mintio dijeron que el hombre me atropello con mi senal en verde y mi nieto nunca corrio a la calle.–Contrate mi abogada porque confie en ella desde el principio. Mi opinion fue correcta-es muy confiable. Nunca he visto la persistencia como la suya nunca canso la lucha nunca darse por vencido.–El hombre que me atropello no tenia mucha aseguranza. Yo con billes con el hospital muy altas y con mucho dolor. Mi abogada presento mi demanda para tratar de sacar mas dinero que la poca aseguranza del hombre. A la semana de presentar mi demanda, el hombre que me atropello regalo su casa a su hijo sin cobrarle ni un cinco.–Luego luego mi abogada cambio mi demanda para exigir dinero por intenta de estafarme asi. El hijo y la nuera vivian en Kentucky muy lejos. Pero aun asi mi abogada seguio la lucha para que estas personas me pagaran mas de su propio bolsillo en un solo pago. Fue una lucha larga y dura, pero lo hizo. Siempre estare agradecida que Dios la puso en mi camino.–Ella me dijo que cuando alguien hace algo intencionado como cuando el hombre regalo su casa asi no hay aseguranza para pagarlo. Los dos abogados del otro lado presionaron a mi abogada, tratando de hacer que perdiera mi caso y que no me pagaran, pero ella nunca se dio por vencida.–Mi abogada logro un rebajo de mi factura con del hospital. Significa que recibi mas dinero en mi bolsillo. Estoy muy feliz con esto.–Digo a mi familia y amigos que si necesitan un abogado que luchara su caso de accidente y nunca se rinde, llame a mi abogada. Que Dios bendiga y proteja a mi abogada Renee Yvonne Gardner.

Helpful, kind and amazing!!
Just got off the phone with Ms. Yvonne Gardner and I am so glad I made the decision to reach out to her! Her tone of voice is so sweet and with a lot of kindness, that made me feel comfortable speaking to her. She is also a great listener, never once did she interpret me when I was speaking to her. She educated me on the stuff I didn't know or understood. She also provided me with helpful resources and advice. Even though she doesn't specialize as a worker's compensation attorney, she took the time out of her day to listen to me and provide me with all the supporting information that I need to know. To me, that speaks highly about her because that shows how committed she is to her job.

100% RECOMMEND/PROFESSIONALISM
I am very thankful that God put this wonderful lady in my path. I can say without question or doubt that Mrs. Gardner is committed to getting the best possible outcome for her clients. This was a very long and difficult case in which an attorney was sought out because one of us family members was threatened with being sued by the insurance of another person in an accident. Mrs. Gardner represented all three of us as a family in a wrongful death case where our family members were tragically killed. With the incredible hard work and dedication to the case, we not only escaped from being sued, but each one us ended up receiving significant outcomes. Her professionalism, client-focused, positive attitude and lastly her bilingual skills which were a super plus for our family, is what makes her achieve her best outcomes. I would definitely recommend Mrs. Gardner to anyone who is in need, may God continue to bless this lovely lady. I really hope my review helps people and if this catches your eye give her a call, she will gladly help. Muchisimas gracias Mrs. Gardner por toda su ayuda!!

Thank you very much for your thoughtful review. I am honored to have had the opportunity to fight for you and your family during this most difficult time in your lives. It was an indescribable nightmare for you and your family to lose three family members overnight. There are no words to describe how deeply sorry I am for for your loss; my heart goes out to you and your family. I am very thankful that I was able to resolve the case and that the resolution helped your family. I am grateful that my bilingual Spanish abilities were so useful to your family. While nothing can bring back your precious loved ones, I am gratified that I was able to be the voice for your family in this most tragic case. May your precious loved ones rest in peace, in the glory of God, knowing that their family sought justice in their names.

Recomiendo 100% la Abogada Renee Yvonne Gardner
La manera en que mi abogada Yvonne Gardner resolvio el caso me hizo sentir muy feliz. Ella lucho mucho en mi nombre durante el tiempo que requirio mi caso; nunca tuvo prisa. Sentia muy frustrado antes de contratar la Abogada Gardner a causa de una orden de arresto. Ya siento un alevio porque ella resolvio todo y quito mi DUI. Decidi contratarla porque ella fue recomendada por mi primo que me dijo que ella fue muy buena con el. Muy buen trabajo de mi abogada. Siempre me comunicaba sobre mi caso. El caso resuelto es muy importante y ella lo hizo muy bien. Lo que mas me sorprendio de ella fue la manera en que ella manejaba mi caso. Sentia muy feliz en la manera que ella siempre me hizo saber cuando iba a tener una corte, luego despues de la corte me dio noticias, y seguio luchando hasta que mi caso se acabo. Ella trabajaba muy duro en especial durante el virus Covid-19, con la calma que queria. El hecho de ella habla espanol fue muy importante para mi, como un Latino. Le diria a cualquier persona que mi Abogada Gardener es excelente. La contrataria en el futuro con cualquier problema, sobre yo mismo, o sobre un familiar. Gracias por todo y que bueno que mi caso resolvio bien.

Muchas gracias por su resena Sr. Ruiz. Review translation: I 100% recommend Attorney Renee Yvonne Gardner The way my attorney Yvonne Gardner resolved the case made me feel very happy. She fought hard on my behalf for as long as it took; she was never in a hurry. I was very frustrated before I hired Attorney Gardner because of an arrest warrant. I now feel a sense of relief because she resolved everything and got my DUI dismissed. I decided to hire her because she was recommended to me by my cousin who told me she was very good to him. Great job by my lawyer. She always communicated with me about my case. A resolved case is really important and she did it very well. What surprised me most about her was the way she handled my case. I was very happy about the way she always let me know when I was going to have a court hearing, then after the court hearing she gave me updates, and she kept fighting until my case was done. She worked very hard especially during the Covid-19 virus, with the calmness that I wanted. The fact that she speaks Spanish was very important to me, as a Latino. I would tell anyone that my attorney Gardener is excellent. I would hire her in the future with any problem, whether it be about me or a family member. Thank you for everything and I am glad my case resolved well. Response translation: Thank you very much for your review Mr. Ruiz.
