At LaGarde Law Firm, we treat our clients like family. We know how injuries or the death of a loved one can distress our clients and their families. We understand that effective counsel means more than skilled legal representation; we are also committed to communication and compassion.

We strive to give our clients the best legal service we possibly can, from initial consultation to successful resolution. Our clients can expect realistic evaluations of the strengths and weaknesses of their cases, prompt and continuous communication and thorough explanations of every step of the process.

We also understand that the costs of a lawsuit can be difficult to bear, especially when the suit involves injury or death. At LaGarde Law Firm, we will work with you to find an arrangement that works, whether on an hourly, contingency or hybrid fee basis.

Under a contingency agreement, we are paid a percentage of any award or settlement that we obtain for you — we only get paid if you do. If we don’t get a recovery for you, you don’t owe us a fee, and you don’t need to reimburse us for court costs or expenses we have paid on your behalf.

At your initial consultation with LaGarde Law Firm, which is free of charge, you will get a frank evaluation of your individual case’s prospects for monetary recovery.

Husband-and-wife partners Richard LaGarde and Mary Ellis LaGarde are fierce advocates for and committed allies to every one of their clients. An understanding of tough financial and emotional experiences forms the cornerstone of LaGarde Law Firm. We know the toll that injury, death and legal conflict take on every aspect of a client’s life. Give us the chance to show what we can do for you. Trust us and our family to help you and your family.
