Maria is the best of the best. She knows the law thoroughly. She is caring, strong, detail oriented and aggressive. She fights for you like the situation happened to her. I can't say enough good things about her.. she's incredible. I only pray that God's blessings overtake her life for the work that she does for those who have been treated unfairly. She's a God send!

Maria was referred to me by another lawyer, that lawyer gave me the option of adding Maria to our team. As soon as she walked in the office I could see that she was so STRONG and AGGRESSIVE and I knew she was going to be just what we needed to lead this case. As time went on I could see her ability and experience topped any other lawyer I knew. I felt so loved and protected as she fought for me! I felt like I had lost everything with the diagnosis of an aggressive cancer and the loss of my job in the same week. She saw through all of their lies and was comfort to me when I doubted anyone would be able to see. I loved watching their faces as she caught them in their lies. It brings a smile to my face when I think about it. She was also available ANYTIME I needed her! I not only feel like our TEAM won, but I feel like I gained FAMILY. I can honestly say she cares about her clients. She makes you feel as if you are the only one she has. I give her my highest recommendation! If you are looking for someone to win your case and stopped the bullies, you have found the right Attorney! She is simply amazing!

I recently was in need of legal services. A friend told me about Mrs. Hughes, from day one I knew she was the person I needed handling my case. Mrs. Hughes fought for me from day one and she never stopped until my case was resolved. I would highly recommend Mrs. Hughes to anyone in need of legal services.

Maria is one of the most talented lawyer in West Virginia. She is one of the few employment lawyers who will actually take a case to trial and not accept the lowball offers from the insurance companies. She is very aggressive but also very professional and a joy to work with on a case. I often refer people to Maria.
