I had the worst nightmare in my family law case before Myava helped me. I had two prior attorneys who billed and billed and didn't get results. Myava went out on a limb for me and what she did was turn my whole case around. I was being robbed for support and my ex neglected our kids. We were able to show how bad they were being treated and I ended up with full custody. She said custody should not be about the sex of a person but about how good they take care of their kids. She made the judge see me and our kids as real people. My kids are safe now. I have peace of mind. And she didn't rob me.

I contracted with Myava R. Escamilla Esq. and she went above and beyond for me. I was really happy with her services and would go back to her anytime. My case was about bankruptcy and my home, which she actually got returned to me after a sale. It's a big relief and words are enough.

Myava was supposed to be helping me with my Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. I have now lost my home with no response from her. I have contacted the Department of Justice.. Hopefully she wont be doing this to anyone else.... Shame on you Myava Escamilla!!!!

Myava helped me release all responsibility from 2 motorcycle's and all a couple credit cards that put me into a hole. Also with helping me get some medical expenses out of my responsiblilty. Myava took my Chapter 7 Bankruptcy case and made it a breeze when I felt like I was never going to get rid of this debt and thought it was going to be a long painful process!
So thanks to Myava and I would definitely recommend her

My husband and I didn't think we would qualify under the new bankruptcy laws. Myava made the process seem so easy. This process can be so stressful, and she was sensitive to that and handled everything for us and we never had any glitches through the process. If you are confused about which direction to go in, I highly recommend giving her a call to discuss your options. Thanks to Myava my husband and I can rest a little easier knowing we have a new beginning.

I was able to stip our second mortgage, keep our house and get rid of all our other debt. Myava made the process simple and easy to understand. It was hard to decide who to trust when I started to lose my home and it's such a frustrating experience, but I'm so glad I went with Myava. She is reasonable with the price and even met me over the weekend. I would recommend her to anyone now.

Bankruptcy is such a scary word and a confusing and even scarier process. I thank God Myava was there to help guide me in taking the proper steps.

I was hesitant to approach any lawyer with my case because of the on going scam about loan modification. When I met her I felt that I can trust her. She made me comfortable and gave me the assurance that I can keep my house and her fee is affordable.

I don't want to sound like I'm exagerating but Myava is everything that you want a lawyer to be. Not only that she is very knowledgeable and resourceful about her cases, she is also compasionate and understanding. She will listen and truly communicate with you so you fully understand what is happening regarding your case. She is sharp and fierce when communicating with the opposing lawyers. Unlike other lawyers that I had, she is very responsive to your questions. There are no words that can truly describe her work. All I can say is YOU WANT THIS WOMAN TO BE ON YOUR SIDE.
