  • Melissa Wilson

    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.

    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.
