“I am so thankful for the excellent legal advice Melinda Garcia at Garcia & Gurney gave to me and my client. The client was going through an awful employment battle with a Fortune 100 employer and she was able to ensure that he kept his job and all of the benefits that were owed to him after 30 plus years of service. He and I were very impressed by Melinda’s professionalism and knowledge and he felt like he had a true partner when it came to negotiating. I highly recommend Melinda and all of the attorneys at this firm.”
