Paul Garcia & Associates is a civil litigation boutique law firm that represents clients throughout Texas. The firm is located in San Antonio but that does not prevent us from representing clients wherever they may need us. We have developed good work relationships with other law firms throughout the state and use those relationship to better serve our clients. For instance, sometimes a court will require attendance for simple matters that could be handled via a phone call. Instead of traveling to El Paso, and thereby costing the client considerable costs in travel expenses, we often have a local counsel appear for us. These business relationships have suited our clients well in the past and client appreciate this strategy as a way to keep legal fees low. For more substantive hearings, we will always be there to represent the client in person should any client not want us to use local counsel, we will of course do whatever is necessary to get the best outcome for the client.

At Paul Garcia & Associates our number one philosophy is to put the clients first and obtain results in a cost effective manner. The legal team at Paul Garcia & Associates believes that low-cost efficient legal services that provide proven results will benefit the client and consumers. Often times, firms tend to over bill or sit on a case so that legal fees can be assessed. Our firm’s practice is to resolve a case as quickly as possible while ensuring the client’s interest is always protected. The attorneys at Paul Garcia & Associates will often project the estimated costs of legal fees versus the benefit of early settlement, so that clients will see and understand the effectiveness of early disposition of cases.
The hourly rates at Paul Garcia & Associates are competitive with other firms in our market and the fees assessed by Paul Garcia & Associates are on average lower than other law firms representing businesses and corporations in the area. We offer legal services on an hourly basis as well as a flat fee basis, depending on the complexity of the case and the efficiency in which a case can be handled. It is our belief to minimize the costs for businesses when handling their legal matters; therefore, we provide forecasting, budgeting and fee guidelines for our clients.
