I endorse this lawyer. I worked with Maria at Mirick O'Connell LLP and she is terrific to work with. As a transactional attorney, she was my "go to" colleague on all real estate matters. She handled them professionally, quickly and established a wonderful rapport with our clients. Maria is an excellent negotiator and very thoughtful in her analysis of complex real estate issues.
