    Attorney Profile

    "In 1975, my parents and I came to America from Argentina.  I was 8 years old when we arrived in New York City.  My parents spoke no English.  I didn't speak English at home.  Nonetheless, my parents established themselves, and succeeded, realizing the great opportunities available in America."

    Mariano Garcia's family moved to Florida in the late 1970s.  He attended the University of Florida where he graduated with a B.S. in Building Construction and went to work for Centex-Rooney Construction Company. Mr. Garcia obtained a general contractor's license and then decided to attend law school.
