A VIDEO BIOGRAPHY – ANDREW J GARCIA
I became an attorney to help people, not to simply prepare documents. Developing relationships with clients is at the heart of what I do.

Not only does this help us with my job, but more importantly, it helps me establish strong relationships with my clients.
I know that clients are often interested in who their lawyer is. In particular, knowing more about your attorney can give you a better sense of who they are beyond just their education and professional associations.
To assist in this understanding, our firm developed a short video biography about my background. We hope that you will find these videos helpful. In the interim, I look forward to learning about you and your background.
