“We have the ability and talent pool to take any matter to trial,” says founding partner Stephen M. Garcia.
As one of the first attorneys to try an elder abuse case, Garcia is considered a leader in the field of elder abuse litigation. Over his career he has helped to shape elder abuse law, testifying in front of the legislature on elder abuse issues and acting as an advocate for the cause.
Garcia also focuses his energies on helping long-term health care providers pinpoint areas for improvement. He says: “I have been thrilled with those entities that really have a desire to provide better care–it has allowed me to sink my teeth into advocacy against those facilities that insist on promoting profits over people.”
Garcia has been named one of the “500 Leading Lawyers in America” by Lawdragon magazine – one of only 100 plaintiff’s lawyers listed–and consistently is selected for inclusion in Southern California Super Lawyers. He also received the California Lawyer of the Year (CLAY) Award for elder law in 2009 and is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Garcia is joined at the firm by partners Bill Artigliere and Mark Shadrack. “With my litigation background, Mark’s unique knowledge of the law and Bill’s compassion, we have formed a team that is difficult to beat,” he says.
