  • Cindi Kamen

    I endorse this lawyer. I had the privledge of working with Maria for a short time on a case recently. She was the GAL in the case. She is hard working, dedicated and above all ethical. We had never met prior to this case. I highly endorse this attorney and am glad I had the opportunity to work with her and more importantly get to know her.
