A Fighter for the People

How I Became Who I Am Today

I was born in Germany while my father was deployed but have lived in Texas since I was 2 years old, and I couldn’t imagine practicing law anywhere else. While I’ve helped people all across the country, I’m thankful to live in McAllen, Texas, with my family and practice with my team at Garcia & Ochoa. When I graduated high school, I left Texas for school, but I wasn’t out of the state for too long. In 1985, I came back to open a law office of my own as a sole practitioner. As I’ve continued to work in my home state and help people both in and outside of our community, my office has grown significantly. My team here is extremely qualified, and we practice in several areas of law, which helps us serve our clients near and far. Like many young individuals, when I first entered college, I was a little unsure about where my path would lead. I went to school in Michigan, and I didn’t know what I wanted to do. At one point during my undergraduate experience, law professors from a nearby law school taught one of our classes and they showed us how to approach a few cases. It was very similar to what they do in law school. While we were sitting there listening to these law professors, I started to realize

that I liked the process. The whole scenario and the steps the law professors were explaining were extremely interesting to me. One of the things that really struck me was the competition aspect. The idea of sitting at a desk reviewing papers all day, every day has never been appealing to me. I played sports throughout my high school and undergraduate years, and I’ve always enjoyed competing with people. To me, law is a challenge. It’s you against the other attorney, standing up for the people you represent. My attraction toward that challenge turned into a burning passion to practice law. When I first started as a lawyer, I wanted to have a firm of my own. This became even more apparent to me after I graduated and had a hard time getting hired, as many lawyers fresh out of school can attest to. That’s when I came to McAllen and started up a practice of my own. I was pretty young at the time, and while I worked to help people and keep my business running, I also learned that so many companies were taking advantage of people who had no one to help them. I give a voice to those who don’t have one, and when no one takes their side, I fight for them and their rights. This is what I’ve strived for as an attorney, and it’s what I do every single day. When you feel like you have nowhere else to turn, and it feels as though the world is pressing in on you, you don’t have to face the battle alone. My team and I are here and willing to do everything we can for you and your loved ones.
