Stephen M. Garcia Named One of 500 Leading Plaintiffs Lawyers
On December 1, 2006 LawDragon Magazine announced its naming of the “500 Leading Plaintiffs Lawyers of America” and included was Stephen M. Garcia of The Garcia Law Firm.
As stated in the publication,
“[T]he Lawdragon 500 Leading Lawyers in America are chosen by their peers and clients based on excellence in their craft, whatever specialty that might be. That they hold an important post is not enough; the test is how a lawyer is judged at his performance within a position.
This is how LawDragon is different from any other appraising system. Where others bow to position and persuasion, we’re simply interested in being the consumer reports of lawyers. Who’s great, who’s not. It’s easy to spot a Rolls-Royce, but what if it doesn’t run? We check the engine.
Power isn’t nothing in the legal profession, but it is more platform than pith. What matters is how deeply the law is embedded in your veins, compelling you to take certain actions and positions because you must. That’s what sets the best ones apart.”
On being named as one of the country’s 500 leading plaintiff’s lawyers, Garcia noted, “This one is special. To be named to a list of a mere 500 from every corner of this country, a selective list which includes the finest Plaintiff’s lawyers is an incredible honor. That this group was selected by our clients and peers makes it all the more special. But most importantly, this honor reflects the success our office has had in the very important job and goal of ensuring justice for all. This honor reflects the success our office has enjoyed in acquiring justice for those, who were it not for the access to courts guaranteed by the Constitution of this great country, would otherwise be unable to look a giant corporation square in the eye on a level playing field and acquire justice. I am deeply honored and appreciative.”
