She is awesome!
Maria was an excellent negotiator in my case. She will be honest with you and let you know what is in your best interest and protect that. I came to her after making zero progress with a previous attorney. She came highly recommended to me and was a perfect fit for me and my case! She is very personable and gets the job done.

Maria Rocks!
Maria handled a mediation for me. The other side was looking to go to court. Maria was able to negotiate going to mediation instead saving me $$$ and was able to get me what I wanted. Bottom line is, Maria Ante is a great attorney! You want her on your side!!!

Excellent personal injury lawyer
Maria represented me on a personal injury case. I was in a significant amount of pain when I hired her and also was stressed out dealing with a very pushy insurance adjuster. She was very helpful during this difficult time in my life. It was quite a lengthy process from beginning to end... several years in fact. Maria was able to work on this case so I could focus on what was important to me, healing and recovering. Maria was great about updating me on the progress of my case throughout the entire process. We tried meditation first but we ended up taking it to trial. I was pleased with the outcome and Maria exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her!

Excellent Attorney for small business!
Maria does a fantastic job for our legal needs. As small business owners we don't have the budget to have in house/on staff full time attorneys. But we still have legals need periodically, for reviewing contracts and other documents, collections, etc. and its great to have an expert local attorney on retainer and as our out sourced legal department that we can count on. Maria is a great communicator, very knowledgeable, and great at what she does for us. Hey, she's also nice and likable, that's a big plus too! Thanks a bunch for your guidance and for your hard work!

Small Business Representation
This is the lawyer you want representing you! I own a remodeling business. In my profession there's no way of getting around a client that decides to not pay and without reason. Maria was able to collect several thousand dollars from the 2 clients I've had that tried to go this route. She is persistent, honest, and guided me through the collection process. I'm happy to say that both instances were handled outside of the court room. Thank you for everything you do! I feel protected and am glad to have you "tell it like it is" while representing my business!

Custody Case
Maria Ante was my Lawyer in a long drawn out custody battle. She was the most understanding and supportive attorney I could have asked for. We knew going into the situation that the opposing party was going to fight us tooth and nail. In the end she got me everything I was asking for and more. Now not only did she get me everything I was asking for she made it so that my son's best interest and mine as well were protected. I would recommend her time and time again!
