Highly recommended!!
Maria Panchenko & her whole office i highly recommend! I walked in & i was met with a warm welcome immediately! They gave me a huge apple & some cold water so i knew i was dealing with professional, upright people! Maria responds swiftly, professionally, & accurately targeting all your questions & concerns! She went into court backed by video evidence with intentions to seek justice & not accept nothing less! Maria argued effectively & aggressively for 10-20 minutes & broke the opposition in half winning my case! I aim at filing fed case & i hope someone in her corner can take this case also im so impressed with her office! If you're ever riding down harper near 9 mile stop by & say hi if its all you do! 5 stars is cool but if i could i would give the 50 stars! Ossie

Highly Recommend
Maria was willing to take on my case with no notice and was going to drop everything if need be to be there. She is very knowledgeable, professional and polite. I would absolutely recommend her over and over again. She was there for me and really helped me to remain calm. She is honest and will go the extra mile and fight for justice for her client.

Concise. Knowledgeable. Responsive
I hired Maria to settle a small claim against my business. Her ability to articulate and orchestrate what most would consider a nightmare was complete opposite. Based on the outcome I have no reason to look elsewhere. She’s the first and only I would refer.
