I highly recommend going to Masiel Valentin when hiring an attorney. She's very ethical and honest when working with her clients. She does not lie to her clients, when she feels something is not right she is open and honest about it. I really enjoy working with her.

Quisiera hablar acerca de mi caso que lleve con la abogada Masiel. Despues de tener mi caso con dos diferentes abogados y perder mi tiempo y no resolver mi caso, por fin un día obtuve una tarjeta de la abogada Masiel . Llamé para hacer mi cita y desde que llegue la conocí y me inspiró confianza. Ella me explicó en detalle cómo iba llevar mi caso y en ese mismo día comenzó de inmediato a trabajar en el. Yo estoy agradecida y contenta porque todas las veces que he ido a su oficina es ella personalmente ha sido ella que se sienta con uno y explica como va el caso y que nececitamos llevar. Para mi esto es algo grandioso. El poder hablar directamente con ella da mas confianza. Ella es un es una persona humilde que entiende la situación de la persona y trabaja duro para sacar el caso. Es una persona que te habla con la verdad y no te da falsas esperanzas. Es exigente con lo que está haciendo y hace el caso de una manera correcta, con pruebas reales. Ella se toma su tiempo en preparar el caso para que salga bien. Yo me siento afortunada el haber encontrado una abogada tan eficiente y honesta. Las veces que he querido hacer una pregunta y quizas era feriado o algo urgente y la oficina no estaba abierta he tenido la oportunidad de enviarle un email y tener de ella una respuesta rápida. Eso ha sido maravilloso. Yo estoy feliz y agradecida por el caso mío que ella lo hizo todo fue con éxito. English Translation: I’d like to talk about my experience with my case handled by attorney Masiel. After having had my case with two different lawyers, wasting time and getting no results, one day I got a business card for attorney Masiel. I called to make an appointment and from the moment I met her she inspired trust. She explained, in detail, how she was going to handle my case and started to work on it immediately. I am very grateful and happy because every time I’ve visited her office she has been the one to personally sit down with me and explain the status of the case and what was needed from me. This is a great thing. Being able to speak to her directly fosters trust. She is an accessible person who understands a person’s situation and works hard to complete your case. She speaks the truth and doesn’t give you false hopes. She is strict with what she does and does things the right way, with real proofs and evidence. She takes her time to prepare the case and get it done right. I feel lucky to have found such an efficient and honest attorney. The times I’ve wanted to ask a question and it was perhaps a holiday or the office was closed, I was always able to email her and get a quick reply. That’s a marvelous thing. I am happy and grateful for the results in my case which she handled with success.

Highly recommended
I went to family court by myself three times thinking the court would be just, but I guess it doesn't work that way. Then I went to Masiel Valentin and right away I felt comfortable and not judged by my past like with other attorneys I visited before. Ms. Valentin knew right away how to proceed and what strategy to use. Right then I knew her expertise was going to help me in court. I like that she was agressive in my case and was fighting for me like she really cared. I've seen other lawyers and they just keep quiet or don't care. Thankfully for me I found her and I very much recommend her. My first experience with her was a few years ago. I recently suffered major changes in my life and had to go back to court. This time she exceeded my expectations. She presented my case so well the judge gave us even more than we ever thought possible. Her work has made a difference in my life and helped me have a better relationship with my daughter.
