Unlike most attorneys, Marcos M. Garza holds a Masters of Science Degree in Social Work and is a former United States Marine. Mr. Garza received a Master of Science degree in Social Work (MSSW) from the University of Tennessee College of Social Work in Nashville, Tennessee in 1998. He also received his Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 2001. Mr. Garza grew up in McMinn County, Athens, Tennessee and attended Vanderbilt University where he received a Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a double-major in Human & Organizational Development in 1996.
Mr. Garza was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the United States during law school. While stationed at Marine Corps Base in Quantico, Virginia, Mr. Garza was a Prosecutor/Trial Counsel of Courts Martials, Aide-de-Camp of a General Officer, and also served as a Martial Arts Instructor. Mr. Garza finished his Active Duty with the rank of Captain.
Summer 2009 started with the worst experience of my life, and thanks to Mr. Garza's help, it ended with one of the best experiences of my life. He fought my DUI case diligently and was extremely prepared when my court trial came along. The outcome was even better than both of us expected, and he had his work cut out for him. The hardest factor in the case was my being underage, but that didn't have any affect on his professionalism or the way he treated me personally. I owe a lot to this man. On a side note, ask for extra things you can do to help and DO them. They will do you more good than you think.
I had a difficult case, -so I thought, where I thought I did very poor on the field tests. Marcos was somehow able to get my case reduced to a reckless driving diversion which means that my criminal record will be clean after 6 months. I can't believe I got out of this one. --I've definitely learning my lesson and am so grateful for Mr. Garza's help. He was absolutely wonderful during the whole process, kept me informed and always returned my calls right away. I would recommend him to anyone for any criminal or car wreck case.
I was very impressed with the service I received from Mr. Garza. He was very compassionate and understanding. He is thorough and explained to me everything that would be taking place. Mr. Garza was very confident in his knowledge of the law and understood that this being my first offence I was not familiar with the system or how it worked. He never made me any promises but delivered far beyond my expectations. I would recommend his services over and over again.
