Commercial Litigation Overview

Our attorneys represent individuals and companies involved in various kinds of business disputes.


García de la Garza is a boutique trial firm.  We deliver big firm quality services with a personal touch.  Jesus Garcia, Jr. and Mario de la Garza, the two named partners, began their careers at prestigious, large law firms.  Mr. Garcia was a partner at Locke Lord, LLP and spent nearly 12 years handling million dollar lawsuits.  Mr. de la Garza spent his time at Haynes and Boone, LLP handling million dollar appeals.  While our clients receive big firm quality legal services, García de la Garza is more flexible.  Each case receives a tailored approach from building the winning strategy to a fee arrangement that makes sense for the case.  Our clients enjoy our fee arrangement flexibility.  We handle cases on traditional hourly rates, many different types of hybrids fees, fixed fees, and contingency fees.  And, while most cases settle out of court, we prepare every case as if it will be presented to a jury, judge, or arbitrator.  We prepare to finish and win every case we handle.  We are often in the court room or in front of an arbitrator trying cases and our results speak for themselves.
