Maria is an excellent attorney. She worked very hard for us to achieve the best results possible for our son. She has good relationships with prosecutors, which helped us achieve a plea agreement that we could live with. She truly cared about us and always made us feel that we have a great friend working for us. She is smart and knows her stuff well. She treated us with utmost respect and was always very warm. We know that without her, we would not be where we are today. She invested many hours to our case, and was dedicated. I highly recommend her!

If you are looking for someone that works overtime for their clients, search no further. Maria played a vital part in my criminal defense case. She is super vigilant and looks at a case from all angles; which was pivotal to my defense in my criminal jury trial. Maria was super helpful at making me feel comfortable from a very uncomfortable position. Due to Maria's expertise in picking jurors, opening statements, closing arguments, and direct and cross examination, my peers found me NOT GUILTY. Maria is a blessing to my family and myself.

I have known Maria for over 20 years. Maria is an extremely intelligent lawyer who understands the nuances of criminal law. Maria is great with her clients and fellow attorney's and has a strong passion for the law which is apparent to anyone who meets her. I strongly endorse this lawyer.
