Attorney Elvia P. Garcia Testimonials



“Very good attorney.”



“I was referred to Elvia back in 2014 while trying to obtain shared custody of my son. I was faced with a situation where I might not have been able to be a part of my child’s life. Relations with my son’s mother had always been difficult and without a written agreement or court order my presence in my child’s life would have suffered. Elvia advised me through the entire situation and was always quick to respond when I had questions. The case eventually ended up in courts a total of three times with one of the times being a trial matter. Elvia was very professional in court and I always felt as if we always obtained the results that we were after. The entire process was very difficult to say the least but we were ultimately successful with our case. Elvia’s not only helped me obtain the custody that I wanted but also helped me keep a decent relationship with my son’s mother through the process. I am now seeing my son regularly and am happy knowing he will grow up with his father in his life. I would strongly recommend Elvia as a lawyer, she was great at her job and was a really great human being to get to know during this process.”

When I was able to get there (6 + months later) she remembered me and the particulars of my case. Elvia has always been friendly and knowledgeable and was dedicated to helping with the resolution to my case.

Thank you so very much, Elvia!”


Criminal Defense

“Eliva was extremely helpful, responsive, and knowledgeable in handling my criminal matter. She guided me through the entire process and kept me informed of exactly what I needed to do to resolve my issue. A process I thought would take at least a month was resolved within about a week due to her hard work and prompt communication, which was a pleasant surprise as in my experience other lawyer’s response times really dragged out the issue making me needlessly worry.”


I really appreciate the excellent treatment I received from Attorney Elvia P Garcia and her coworkers. I received prompt responses to my phone calls and email messages regarding my case. I feel she gave it her best in handling my case. I’m still dealing with the consequences of my mistakes. I look forward to completing all court-ordered programs and paying all the fines imposed on me. Most of all, I want to get off probation and have Attorney Elvia P Garcia request to have my record ex sponge. Thank you


Child Support

“I reached out to Elvia regarding a change in child support. I was in the midst of chaos with the birth of my new baby and had a short amount of time to get things done before the court date. Elvia was honest about the possible outcomes of my case and she kept me updated throughout the process. She responded to my questions promptly. The outcome of my case wasn’t exactly what I wanted but I knew it was a possibility and my experience was awesome.

I would recommend her to anyone and will definitely use her again for any future situations.”
