Maria is a highly trained and skilled attorney. She reviewed my case from all angles and guided me through my legal situation. Maria has such a caring and dedicated spirit that I felt she was "in the battle " with me. Because of her help my case went away. I would definitely hired her again!

Amazing!! Phenomenal!!! Outstanding!! These words don't even come close to describing Maria Pavlidis and her partner Lily. They were committed from beginning to end. Giving their all the whole way thru. Our family would not have made it through this year if it wasn't for their expertise. They are a true blessing to our family and I can't thank them enough. If you are looking for a kick butt professional , Maria is your girl.

A colleague who has had first-hand experience with Lily McCarty and Maria Pavilidis recommended them to me after I had been arrested for a DUI. From the first conversation I had with them over the telephone to the final outcome of my case (great outcome), I could not have asked for a better team. They were honest from the very beginning about the possible outcomes of my case and answered all of my questions and concerns as they came up during my case. Both Lily and Maria attended every meeting that was conducted and appeared at every court appearance that I had to attend. It will put your mind at ease knowing that you have two remarkable individuals working hard for you. Throughout my case, there were ups and downs that occurred (both related and unrelated to my case), and both Lily and Maria would check in with me to see how I was doing. You cannot buy that kind of service, and that is what makes them great at what they do.

Absolute best. I highly recommend Maria . It's wonderful to see honesty and integrity still exists in today's legal system.Maria worked endlessly on a difficult case and was truly well prepared and tenacious when needed.Each motion was thoroughly explained and presented in a professional manner shorting my probation by years.

She was my public defender at the beginning of my case 7 years ago and she did everything possible for me, I never knew she would work that hard for me. She is caring and honest and fights for you every step of the way. I hired her last month to have me early termed and she made it possible through all of her hard work. I appreciate her and to me shes my angel.

Long story short.. had a hard case and she was my public defender she saw through everything and did more than I could have ever thought to defend me, no matter what she was there even on an emotional level you get people who do their jobs because they really love what they are doing, so they do everything to a tee. She was on top of everything even in my darkest times she showed me the light I had hope and a defense that backed it up I truly was blessed to have her on my team. She works, fast,i Was always in the loop, stood her ground. She fights hard there's no backing down for her..she doesn't treat you like another case or number with Maria your a person not another static, she's honest, upfront and driven by a passion for justice! Amazing women and attorney

Maria Pavlidis is what the definition of a professional should be. I recently used Ms. Pavlidis on a felony probation case. Ms. Pavlidis had completely reviewed my case and knew all of the facts before I even met with her the first time. A very different story from my previous attorney. She was available at all hours and kept me informed throughout the process. I was impressed with her knowledge and how familiar she was with other attorneys and prosecutors. She conducted herself inside the courtroom with tenacity and confidence. Ms. Pavlidis against all odds had my felony probation ended 8 years earlier than I was sentenced!!! I would recommend Ms. Pavlidis to ANYONE needing ANY kind of legal counsel.

Lily McCarty and Maria Pavlidis are exceptional attorneys and individuals. When our son was falsely accused of a felony crime, Lily and Maria were highly recommended by an out of state attorney, who was familiar with their experience, track record, and reputation. Within hours of hearing of our circumstances, Lily and Maria met with our son and began building his defense. They fought fervently on his behalf, putting in sleepless nights when timing was critical. Lily and Maria were professional and astute. They were also compassionate, kind, and accessible throughout this ordeal. As a result of their quick response and legal prowess, this case was ultimately dismissed. We are incredibly grateful to Lily and Maria for their skill and hard work to vindicate an innocent young man. We wholeheartedly recommend them as outstanding defense attorneys.

Earlier this year I was charged with a DUI. I was very concerned how this arrest would affect my short term goal of attending graduate school and my post graduate school career interests. After interviewing several attorneys, I hired the law firm Maria Pavlidis was working with at the time based on the recommendation of one of her former colleagues. By the end our first meeting, I knew I my decision was the correct one. Maria eased my anxiety and was very honest about the challenges my case presented. She also advised me on what proactive steps I could take to help with my case. Even though Maria left the firm shortly after I hired them, she continued to assist with my case and was always available to answer my questions. Maria Pavlidis treats all her clients with respect and works all her cases with a high level of competency and professionalism, regardless of how big or small. I highly recommend Maria Pavlidis if you want an attorney who will fight for you and do everything possible to resolve your legal challenges.

I worked closely with Ms. Pavlidis for five years at the Public Defender's Office in Tampa. Ms. Pavlidis exudes compassion for her clients. She is not afraid to take difficult cases and has the best work ethic in the business. Many lawyers claim to have trial experience, but Ms. Pavlidis actually has credible and recent experience before juries. If one of my close friends or a family member ever found themselves in criminal trouble, I would not hesitate to refer them to Ms. Pavlidis.
