Houston divorce attorney Kara Garcia

Houston family law attorney Kara Garcia knows firsthand how trying a divorce can be. She herself went through a difficult divorce, and that experience imparted in her a deep sense of empathy that allows her to relate to what her clients are going through.

“I want to be able to help others through a difficult time in their life,” she said.

Ms. Garcia always emphasizes the importance of compromise during divorce. While she is a steadfast advocate for her client, she also recognizes the value in working with the other side in order to come to an agreement that eases the transition through divorce for both parties.

“In a family law case, neither side leaves feeling that they ‘won’ or got everything they wanted,” she said. “It is important to prioritize what is most important to them and fight the hardest for the important issues.”
