I strongly recommend Maya as your divorce attorney because she is a great listener, understanding of your feelings and will give 100% of her effort to producing a fantastic outcome for you personally. Her delivery of presenting your issues in court is phenomenal and she has a great track record of winning the issue at hand.
I had a high litigation divorce that took 2 years to resolve and I had no knowledge or background regarding the legal system. Maya was so inspiring to me that after my divorce I became a paralegal so I could re-enter the work force to earn a living now that I was a single parent.

I retained Ms. Shuman's services while living out of state. I had never met her. She was so professional, and knowledgeable on the phone....I felt I was in good hands. It was a difficult and emotional situation for me. She walked me through every aspect of the case and fought hard for me when things got complicated. It was due to her tenacity & capability that we reached a successful settlement. I believe, very strongly, had I retained a less capable lawyer ......the ending would not have been to my advantage. She made me brave when I was overwhelmed, and taught me so much . I will always be so very grateful that I had the privilege of seeing her in "action"

I used Maya for my own divorce a few years back and she did a wonderful job. I was very pleased how quickly all the paperwork was done and how smooth the process went.
Last year, I referred one of my long time clients to her. It was a pretty messy situation, but she handled it very well and BOTH my clients (husband and wife) are happy with the outcome.

I was given Maya Shulman’s name through a friend intimately associated with a professional networking organization. She came very highly recommended. I needed someone I could feel confident in. My divorce had become very complex, complicated and involved, requiring diligent attention to detail. There was so much information that needed to be pulled together.
After my initial phone contact and interview with Maya, I was immediately reassured. I never regretted hiring her. She is very smart, responsive, thorough, knowledgeable, professional, and straight forward. There were many details that had to be addressed properly. She was resourceful and either aggressive or diplomatic as the situation required. She is a no-nonsense attorney, upfront about the legal situation and fearless in her approach to it.
Maya’s conduct inspires confidence. She was able to inform me in a way that gave me strength and hope when I had none coming into her. She was fair, caring, understanding and compassionate. She relieved me of a great deal of stress and anxiety. The dissolve of my marriage was excruciatingly painful. The opposing side was as difficult as could be imagined. I, like many others, have never experienced a situation so challenging, traumatic and devastating.
Maya kept me well informed with office meetings, phone calls and emails. Any questions I had were promptly and professionally addressed. Her practice encompasses comprehensive work ethics and great legal standards. She was completely professional in her representation and was truly dedicated to what she does. She was far more knowledgeable than the opposing counsel.
This would not be a complete review without praising the team Maya works with. The senior partner in her firm was available for consultation and their teamwork was impressive. Her staff was incredible. Each was professional, highly knowledgeable, friendly and easy to work with. I felt like they cared about me personally and cared about my case. Everyone was there for “me” through all the twists and turns that occurred in my case. Their responsive and timely communication, dedication, experience, and actions were second to none.
Maya Shulman is the epitome and embodiment of integrity. She was an invaluable ally and an excellent advocate for me. Her due diligence, high ethical standards, knowledge of family law and determination in the handling of my case made it possible to settle this seemingly impossible divorce.
She gave me the ability to do what I would never have been able to do for myself. From the very first meeting until the final resolution, I always felt fortunate and grateful that I had such a qualified professional representing me and my future.
