When you visit a lawyer, usually you are at your most vulnerable moment, and not only do you need legal advice, but you want to feel that your lawyer also understands the many emotional and economical aspects of your situation. My experience with Maritza Estevez-Pazos and the firm in itself, is that you could not bee in better hands. I have reccomended her already to a friend, and will continue to do so. A great lawyer with a heart!

Divorce is a choice. Either your choice or your partner choice. Whoever decided to divorce, the first action you need to do is sit down and accept the fact. Then, you will do your job hiring your divorce attorney.
After I accepted my husband choice, I did my research for an attorney. I'm not an experienced divorcing woman. In fact, I never had the need to hire an attorney in my life before.
I found Maritza Estevez-Pazos through the internet, and did my job screening her background and reading one single review in this site. I gave her a chance from what I read. And for my surprise, in our first meeting she exceeded my expectations. I knew from the very beginning she was the attorney I was looking for. (By the way I never told her that! Lol).
My case is complex since there are immigration issues with a divorce and three American children. And I can say, that Maritza handled the entire process with an immaculate professionalism, she is extremely organized, she listens, she follows up her clients, she reads and answers emails, she calls. She uses all the mechanisms of communication with her clients. She answers questions. She explains the natures of her answers. She is simply an amazing attorney.
She is not your counselor. She is your attorney and you need to trust in her experience as a professional of the law. If you are trapped emotionally in your situation, then find a counselor and let Maritza work for your benefits without giving her the responsibility to cope also with your emotions. That is what I did, and that is the result why Maritza did a brilliant job in my case.
There is a lot good things to say about her, as a professional, as a mother, as a wife, as a daughter, as a daughter-in-law, as a sister-in-law, as a friend, as a human being. She deserves everything good because she works hard for that. She takes care about her clients. I'm a witness.
I just simply want to say a big THANKS to Maritza. I know the planet is full of good attorneys but I must say I thanked God because I found her.
I'm sure she deserves with you the same chance I gave her, to handle your choice or your partner choice...
