    • I recommend Maria Patterson.
    • I hired Maria 6-12 months ago.
    • Maria handled my Criminal Defense matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I am from another state and encountered a legal matter in Maryland. Maria instantly took my case. She was very thorough, informative, and always got back to me quickly. Within a week, I had to go to a hearing. Her level of preparedness was unbelievable, and my case was immediately dismissed. Maria is one of those people that you meet in life that I will never forget. I cannot express how good of an attorney she is. I highly recommend her. After Maria, I needed an attorney in my own state, and I was highly disappointed with him after dealing with Maria.

    Please note the thank you email below that we sent Maria after her help with a long and difficult legal matter. Her professionalism, and her effective and diligent efforts have reaffirmed to us that the legal process in our country does work and works well:
    "A simple thanks does not seem to suffice for your representation in our son's lawsuit. Our son described you to us as a 'little bulldog', and after meeting you and seeing you in court, I have to agree. Please know that this was said as our son displayed his impish smile, and meant as a high compliment.....Remember it comes from a 6 foot 4 twenty year old who has the utmost respect for you. You helped us all to see why this country is great and does have laws that are real and sensible. We, but especially our son, have carried the burden of this horrible ordeal for 4 long years.....but for whatever reasons he most of all had to endure the larger share of the burden and learn the most lessons from it all. We don't always know why one or another of us has to learn either easier lessons or more difficult ones. I have no doubt that the lessons he has learned will never be forgotten nor will you .....his little bulldog of an attorney. Again, thanks for....everything....your coaching of us, your nonjudgmental interactions with our son, your well developed plan and your ability to alter strategies on the fly.....We wish you much success in your profession.....many will surely benefit from your success and ability as an attorney.
