What people are saying about Marcos Garza…
“Our experience with Marcos and his entire firm was outstanding. My suffered a personal injury during a mishap that should’ve been a no brainer for the insurance company to pay us for future surgeries he will need. Instead they played beat the clock with us and attempted to run the clock past one year. As a skilled lawyer and attorney Marcos educated us as to the true intentions of the insurance company from our sons’ accident. I would recommend Marcos Garza and the Garza Law Firm to anyone. In fact I’ve flat out sent valued friends to him as well and will continue to do so. Thank you Garza Law Firm for going to bat for us.”
