Johnathan Garza on Fighting for What Is Right

I love being an attorney. If you ask any of the attorneys at Herrman & Herrman, there is a good chance they will say the very same thing. But it is not just that I love being an attorney; I love being an attorney at Herrman & Herrman. I’ve been with the firm for three years now. I’m just one of the few pre-litigation attorneys here, and I manage our McAllen office. This means I wear multiple hats on any given day. I can tell you that running an office and serving as an attorney offers many unique challenges, but it can certainly make the day interesting. I spend part of my time making sure our McAllen branch is running smoothly. If there is anything that needs to be done, I’m there. In one moment, I may be a manager running a team meeting, and in another moment, I’m the temporary janitor. Whichever role I need to fill, I fill. Of course, managing the McAllen office is only a small portion of my day. I still have plenty to handle on the litigation side of things. That said, no matter the role, I love it. Balancing roles comes with a number of pros and cons. For one, I set my own schedule, which is a huge pro. This way, I can stay organized and keep things reined in. But the biggest pro is the fact that I get to be the attorney I set out to be. What do I mean by that? Before I joined Herrman & Herrman, I was with a firm where my role was more fractured. There was a time when I was doing many ancillary things, like working at political functions. That wasn’t why I got into law. I wanted to serve the interest of the client.

Thankfully, that’s exactly what I get to do at Herrman & Herrman. I

got into personal injury law because I wanted to help people, to fight for them, and to fight for what’s right. So many people who come to us do so because they were injured in a way that was not their fault.

They need someone in their corner to fight for them, and that’s me. I can be that person who fights their battles. That’s really why I got into law.

When I’m not in the office, I love to get out to the beach or out to South Padre Island when I get the chance. My wife and I spend as much time outdoors as we possibly can. We’ve actually done a few trips around the country just to go hiking. Colorado has been one of our favorite destinations. We also try to take a yearly vacation, but this year I ended up getting sick a couple of days into our getaway. That put a damper on things, for sure, but I may be able to make up for it next year.

At the moment though, now that it’s fall, I’m looking forward to the 2019-2020 football season! Go Aggies! Go Cowboys!
