For those who know Alejandro Garcia well, his family and friends, they see an optimistic man, a man who chooses to see the good in people and to focus his time on making the world a little better, for the people in his life and for the people he represents.
As Alejandro says “I choose to look at the world through rose-colored glasses. I like to give everyone the benefit of the doubt and assume the best unless they prove otherwise.” And if there’s something wrong with that, then we don’t want to be right.
But don’t get it wrong, Alejandro’s optimism is his weapon. For over 23 years, he has fought for those who have been injured in accidents, especially those who have suffered traumatic brain injuries and spinal cord injuries. His optimism is reserved for those he is close to and his clients, and when he cares about your future, he will focus on an optimistic outcome and do everything in his power to reach that goal.
And no matter how difficult the case or the cause, Alejandro will fight to the end. This drive to fight for everyone has been nurtured since he was very young.
According to Alejandro, his desire to become a lawyer started when he was a child. “My family always joked that I was the defender of all lost causes. My standard response was ‘the causes aren’t lost anymore once I find them’. By the time I hit middle school, I got involved in debate and I was pretty set on my path toward the legal profession.”
It’s important for every client that works with Alejandro to remember that we strive to work as a team, we are in this together. Alejandro wants his clients to remember that they should be involved at every stage of the case and feel confident that we have their best interest at heart, in every situation.
Alejandro Garcia joined Steinger, Greene & Feiner in May 2015 as a seasoned trial attorney with over 17 years’ experience in the practice of injury law.
Mr. Garcia graduated from the University of Miami in 1993 and received his law degree from American University, Washington College of Law, in 1996, where he actively fought for the rights of immigrants and volunteered for AYUDA, an organization that supports immigrants by providing them with pro bono legal counsel.
He has tried over 40 jury trials to verdict and was voted Best of the Bar for Personal Injury in the Miami Business Review in 2002. His most memorable case involved a young man injured in a motorcycle accident.
Mr. Garcia remembers, “The young man who was involved in a motorcycle accident and suffered a severe brain injury. I got to know the family very well while I represented him, and to this day we still speak and see each other often and I consider them dear friends. I learned that when a tragedy strikes a person, the entire family is affected.
To do your job as a lawyer, you need to make sure the entire family is considered and is a part of the process.”
His areas of focus now include automobile, motorcycle, and trucking accidents as well as wrongful death, near-drownings, and premises liability. He is dedicated to fighting for his client’s rights and obtaining the results they deserve.
Alejandro looks forward to coming into the firm every day to work with so many like-minded, hardworking personal injury attorneys. “I’m blessed to work with great people with high standards and ethics. As attorneys, a lot of trust is placed in our hands and it’s too easy for attorneys to cross the line. There’s nothing more liberating than working at a place where there’s never a question as to whether or not you’re going to do the right thing.”
His optimistic view of the world is infectious, and we are lucky to have Alejandro on our side, and so are all of our clients.
