    I strongly endorse Maria Pavlidis. She is extremely hard worker and possess the ability to think on her feet. I have dong several complicated jury trials with her. She has always been prepared and a force to be reckoned with.

    I consider Ms. Pavlidis one of the hardest working and most tenacious attorneys, that I have had the privilege of working with in the past. She simply cannot be outworked or intimidated. I have personally seen her take on some of the most toughest cases in major crimes and single handily outshine the prosecution, stand her ground with the judges and handle the media as if it was second nature, all while giving her client the best chance at success. I look forward to working with her again. I highly endorse Maria Pavlidis.
