I have never met Jose before, but I had an emergency situation that I needed litigation advice and Jose met me on the same day even in his office during his off day.  He was one of the most professional, knowledgeable, and nicest people I have ever met.

"Mr.Garay and his staff took immediate action"

A few years ago I found myself being taken advantage of by a company which I had put my sweat and hard work into for over 10 years. My fellow employees and I were compensated for our unpaid wages through a class action suit. I also received an enhancement for starting the class action. The process of righting our plight was made easier by Mr.Garay, who fought for us with professionalism while all the while being courteous and sensitive to our concerns.

"Garay Law 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.
