Excellent Attorney
Maria has been our attorney for our charter schools for over 4 years. She is absolutely superb. She is a fantastic listener, who truly tries to get to the heart of the issue while identifying the needs of her clients. She has offered advice on many, many issues in a manner that is collaborative with the client. Her ability to look at an issue on many fronts and provide us with various risks(and suggestions on how to rectify the risks) is unparalleled. Besides being a fantastic attorney, she is truly a wonderful person who is respected in the legal, education, and non profit industries.
