At Garza & Garza Law, PLLC, we’ve handled tough criminal, civil, and family cases, to which our clients were very happy with the results.
Several of our cases have received national attention and been featured on programs such as Dateline, 60 minutes, and 48 hours. In one of these cases, Judge Robert Garza was able to persuade a jury to grant his client probation after the jury found his client guilty for the murder of her spouse. The Court had no choice but to grant the probation with community service.
Although we are not an old firm, we have dealt with high profile cases that old and large firms deal with. We will not back down from the challenge and fight for what is right!
Examples of Our Work
Court Initiated Guardianship of Unaccompanied Minors
A Cameron County Court appointed Myles R. Garza as the Attorney Ad Litem for several Guardian Ad Litems and Unaccompanied Minors located in a Brownsville facility. The case occurred during the Trump Administration’s Zero-Tolerance Policy with family separations and this case was to ensure that the Unaccompanied Minors had a legal guardian in Texas. The case was removed from a Texas Court to a Federal District Court and a legal battle proceeded with the United States Department of Justice. Despite the limited resources available to Myles Garza, he did not back down from his duty as the Attorney Ad Litem.Read More
Cameron County Public Corruption
Myles R. Garza was part of the team that successfully defended a Cameron County Public Official from a felony indictment with 23 counts. Normally, a felony indictment has 1 to 3 counts, but this case had 23 counts. Prior to trial, 1 count was dismissed along with 7 more counts during trial. In the end, the jury found our client “not guilty” on the remaining 15.
Garza vs. Hargan
The case that gained nationwide recognition in 2017 that aired on VICE News, CNN, and other media outlets started with Rochelle Garza as the Guardian Ad Litem and Myles R. Garza as the Attorney Ad Litem. As of 2019, this case is still being litigated by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).Read More
The Last Murder Probation Trial
In one of our first cases to receive nation attention, a woman was charged and convicted of murdering her husband. In our opinion, the verdict should have been “not guilty,” but the jury disagreed. However, the jury agreed with Judge Robert Garza and granted the woman probation instead of sending her to prison between 5 to 99 years.Read More
