Maria I. Gonzalez was born in New York City and attended college at the University of Binghamton where she obtained her bachelor’s degree and then attended the University of Buffalo where she obtained her Jurist Doctorate degree in 1995. Shortly after graduating from Law School she moved to Arizona and was admitted to practice law in 1996.
She began practicing law in 1996. In September of 1997 she became a prosecutor for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. During her time at the County Attorney’s Office, she handled numerous misdemeanor and felony cases in both adult court and juvenile court.
In 2002, she left the County Attorney’s Office and began working as staff counsel for
Allstate Insurance Company. She worked for Allstate for three years and tried several cases, most of which she won. In 2005, she went to work for a law firm where she practiced primarily personal injury law and criminal defense.
In June of 2007, she started The Gonzalez Law Firm, PLLC because she saw a need in the community for a competent and caring attorney. She currently practices criminal defense in City court, State court and Federal court. She also practices personal injury and civil matters.
