Maryam’s legal career focuses on family law and civil litigation. In civil litigation, Maryam has represented a number of plaintiffs whose civil rights were undermined by major corporations and insurance companies in both state and federal court. Throughout her career Maryam has obtained over six figures in combined settlements and jury verdicts in civil matters.
In family law, Maryam is focused on one goal- to obtain the best possible result for her client. Whether aggressive litigation is necessary or a more collaborative approach is required, a strategy is immediately devised to obtain results. Maryam works with the client, provides a listening ear through the most difficult time in his/her life, and remains compassionate without compromising aggressive representation. Maryam knows that her clients are faced with an emotional time and will guide them through the legal proceedings to ensure their legal rights are met. The Atighechi Law Group focuses on family law which includes, divorce, spousal support, child support, child custody, move away orders, restraining orders and prenuptial agreements.
