Garay Gets It Done!
After having successfully handled my case, I've referred several friends and colleagues to Mr. Garay. He has come through and gotten their cases settled favorably every time. My reputation, both personal and professional, is very important to me. I won't make a referral to people I know and work with unless that company has my complete confidence and trust. Mr. Garay and his associates continuously meet my high standards and expectations in getting the job done, that's why I will continue to recommend him to my colleagues and associates.
If you need an attorney who cares and who demonstrates knowledge of complex disability, overtime and wrongful termination law, hire Garay Law. I have referred family and friends and they all say the same thing: friendly, caring and knowledgeable. Top-notch staff.
When I first decided to file a case, I was worried about retaliation. Garay Law and its staff walked me through litigation and I felt safe going forward. I was pleased to see that Mr. Garay and his staff were not afraid of a Fortune 100 tech giant and I was able to stay in my position for nine more months than I expected, and I walked away with terms favorable to me and I received a settlement higher than I expected. The Garay team is top notch!
