  • Maria Kathleen Matan

    I endorse this lawyer. I was very impressed by her work on a case of a mutual client. She went above and beyond what many attorneys would do to prove his innocence and later assist him in documenting that the charges were not supported by evidence so that they would not affect him in other legal matters.
