About me

 

 

I believe in upfront fees, straight

talk, and swift action on behalf of my clients.  As a former small

business owner myself, I have personal experience with the daily issues

you face running and growing a your own company.  And because I focus my

law practice on representing California contractors, subcontractors, and

material suppliers, I bring a thorough understanding of the specific legal

challenges faced by California construction business owners.

 

I began my professional career as

an entrepreneur by founding the Lighten Up Improv Co. in Kansas City,

Missouri.  I produced and directed comedy shows and tours while developing

and facilitating Corporate Teamwork & Creativity Seminars for clients

nationwide, including several Fortune 500 companies.  Ten years

later I moved to southern California and formed a start-up internet sales

business.  And five years later I put myself through law school at night

while working in the construction business by day.  Much

of my family has been in the Southern California construction

business for over 30 years. 

 

I am a graduate of the University of Missouri and Concord Law

School, and a member of the California State Bar, the Los Angeles County Bar

Association, and the American Bar Association.  Originally from the

Midwest, I now make my home in Southern California with my wife and

two children.

Customer Reviews

We hired Mr. Garlett to help us collect on a 10% retainer that should have been paid to us 30 days after final inspection. We have been happy with the service he’s provided so far. We switched to him because he mainly dealt with construction matters (I think his family’s in the business) and because he was really responsive to our needs. We’re probably going to get him to help us with another job that looks like we’re going to have problems with, so hopefully we’ll continue to be satisfied with his services and not have to come back and update this review!
