​​Thomas Garcia (pictured left) and Dominic Garcia (pictured right) aren't always working at the firm, as they are busy seniors at Palacios High School and involved in many extracurricular activities. However, both "Tommy" and "Dom", or also lovingly referred to as "the twins" have helped the firm since we established our Palacios office in 2014.  Since then, these dependable young men have always been on hand to help when needed.  After graduation in May of 2017, Tommy will be attending Texas A&M University in College Station, while Dom will attend Texas A&M University in Kingsville.  

Kim joined our firm in August 2016, although Kim has also been vital to the firm since its inception. Kim was a refugee to the United States during the Vietnam War.  Like many other Vietnamese refugees, Kim came to this country with nothing and became successful through hard work, perseverance and ingenuity. 

Kim has had an extensive career as an entrepreneur, owning a Vietnamese grocery store, and several successful restaurants in Palacios where she is lovingly referred to as "Mama Chau."  

Even in retirement, Kim joined our firm to serve as a Vietnamese Translator as well as our Notary Public. Kim also serves as the firm's personal chef. 

Kim's knowledge, skills and experience are vital to the firm, her influence being the perfect motherly touch to our law firm family.   You can reach her directly at

​​Linh joined our firm in August 2016, although Linh has been vital to the firm since its inception. In 1975, Linh was sent to this country serving the United States Army during the Vietnam War.  After Saigon fell, and without a way to get back home, Linh made his life here in Texas.

Linh worked for 20 years as a Fish and Wildlife Technician for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, becoming the first Vietnamese immigrant to work for that Department, and was crucial to the mediation that took place during the infamous South Texas Boat Burnings instigated by the KKK. 

Linh currently serves as the Municipal Judge for the City of Palacios, and has served in that position for over 20 years as well.    

Linh has many duties at the firm, but his official title is Vietnamese Translator.  He is not only vital as a team member, but he serves as our mentor and guiding force.  You can reach him directly at
