    • I recommend Mary Castro-Ayala.
    • I hired Mary 1-6 months ago.
    • Mary handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Would I recommend Mary ayala? Yes! I would. I don't think there are enough words that can describe what an amazing person Mary is. What I can say is I needed someone who was going to stand right next to me and my family. She was there 100% . If you need someone that is going to care about your situation and not only see you as another paycheck then Ayala is the person for you. My son is now back with me where he should be and that definitely couldn't be accomplished without her!

    • I recommend Mary Castro-Ayala.
    • I hired Mary more than 3 years ago.
    • Mary handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Heck yes! She really stepped up and out for me when my ex filed for custody of our 11 yr old son. I cannot even begin to tell you the wonderful things she did for me. But the main thing is, I have my son, because of her. She has a heart of gold, and I truly believe she takes each situation she deals with and looks at it at a personal level. She is a gem!!! I got lucky, she was the first attorney I ever had to hire and I got a rockstar!

    Mary has worked miracles with my case. I have had a rough legal background, the Ex HATED me, I was even on probation, and my children were taken away briefly by CPS due to false allegations by former spouse.

    In a few short weeks, I had custody of my children 50/50 physical and legal, and they were back in my home, and still are more than half the time.

    She has helped me smooth over issues with former spouse as they arise without expensive litigation. When it came time to protect my kids, Mary moved fast and furious, and had the at-risk child back in my home full time until matters could be resolved.

    Mary has always made time for me, when I needed to speak to her, and again... solved many issues with former spouse for me without court, saving me money.

    She has been my lawyer now for 3 years, and I cannot imagine finding anyone like her. Thank you so much Mary!
