Excellent Attorney !
I hired this attorney highly recommended through a friend; and I am so happy to have found her ! She immediately began working on our case and got the ball rolling to help our family with a very complicated case when we were losing hope...I can't say enough good things about her ! She's the absolute best ! I've used other attorneys in the past; but have NEVER worked with one this professional or good !

Hands down the best mediator in South Florida!!!
Maria is an extraordinary mediator. She is kind, patient, listens and I am amazed at how well informed she was about our case when we began the mediation process. Truly a relief to see that there are still people that work in the legal community that actually enjoy their work and truly care about law and justice. If you are looking for a fair, intelligent and just mediator, look no further. Maria is your best choice.
