    I absolutely endorse this lawyer. Maria Pavlidis is an outstanding attorney. I had the pleasure of working with her early in my career, and I can't speak more highly about her competence and dedication. Maria Pavlidis is very well respected in the legal community, as well. She is extremely passionate and very hard working.

    I endorse this lawyer. Maria and I worked together for many years at the Public Defender's Office. Over the years, I've had ample opportunity to witness Ms. Pavlidis in action. She is always well prepared and a great advocate.
