I contacted, consulted with, and ultimately hired attorney Maitland to represent me in a case recently. He is a very personable professional with keen insights. He brings many years of experience to his legal practice and takes the time to listen to his client’s situation. He has given meticulous attention to all of the details of my case. I highly recommend this attorney for all of your social security disability and immigration needs.

Maitland is excellent, he will fight for you!
Attorney Maitland is very knowledgeable and honest. I felt as if I was being listened to. He handled my case with care. I was very impressed when he came with me to court and defended me well in front of the judge. I could not have asked for better. Also, the staff at the office were very friendly and kept me updated on the developments of my case.
