When a advocate for children and families hears of an attorney who is doing a great job at fighting for the families in the broken juvenile system and against the broken system of CPS… I just want to thank you from many families as you are a rare Gem to find! Thank you so much and pray for many blessing for your life and know you are a RARE find! 


I hired Ms. Garcia about 6 months ago to represent me in my dissolution of marriage action. Divorce was a very hard decision for me to make, but from the first call I had with Ms. Garcia, she made me feel comfortable. She kept me informed the entire process. She was very responsive and always willing and able to answer any questions of concerns. I cannot thank her enough for her expertise and making this process easier than I had expected. I definitely recommend her to anyone.


I couldn’t recommend Elvia highly enough. When the legal system left me hurt and confused, she fought fiercely and got me results.

Elvia believes in what she does and her passion shines through in her work. She couldn’t have done a better job for me and I know she’ll fight just as successfully for you.


A very good friend of mine referred me to Mr. McMurray. He is an extremely intelligent person. He is diligent in his work and a true advocate for his clients. He takes a personal interest in understanding how you want to be represented. He then brings a wealth of experience and knowledge of the law and manages your case in an expedient way.
