Attorney Profile

As an attorney with extensive trial experience, Andrew P. Garza is an advocate for people who have suffered a personal injury or an injury at work. He also defends people who have been accused of a crime. He founded the Connecticut Trial Firm, LLC, with the intention of providing thorough representation for people throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Admitted to practice before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts, Mr. Garza is an exceptional litigator. For example, in a three-day jury trial involving a motor vehicle accident, he secured a verdict that was one and a half times what the defense initially offered. At the start of his career, Mr. Garza defended insurance companies in car accident claims. He brings those skills to his criminal defense practice and that insight to his personal injury practice.

Mr. Garza has been widely recognized for his accomplishments. He holds an Avvo “Superb” rating; he has been listed in The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 under 40; the National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys included him in its Top 10 Under 40 list; and he has been in the National Association of Distinguished Counsel’s Nation’s Top One Percent.

In 2009, Mr. Garza earned a Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of Connecticut. He then attended the New England Law | Boston, graduating cum laude and with a Juris Doctor in 2012.

As an active member of the legal community, Mr. Garza is involved with the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association, the Connecticut Trial Lawyers Association, the Hartford County Bar Association and The Oliver Ellsworth American Inn of Court.
