I was given Maya Shulman’s name through a friend intimately associated with a professional networking organization. She came very highly recommended. I needed someone I could feel confident in. My divorce had become very complex, complicated and involved, requiring diligent attention to detail. There was so much information that needed to be pulled together.
After my initial phone contact and interview with Maya, I was immediately reassured. I never regretted hiring her. She is very smart, responsive, thorough, knowledgeable, professional, and straight forward. There were many details that had to be addressed properly. She was resourceful and either aggressive or diplomatic as the situation required. She is a no-nonsense attorney, upfront about the legal situation and fearless in her approach to it.
Maya’s conduct inspires confidence. She was able to inform me in a way that gave me strength and hope when I had none coming into her. She was fair, caring, understanding and compassionate. She relieved me of a great deal of stress and anxiety. The dissolve of my marriage was excruciatingly painful. The opposing side was as difficult as could be imagined. I, like many others, have never experienced a situation so challenging, traumatic and devastating.
Maya kept me well informed with office meetings, phone calls and emails. Any questions I had were promptly and professionally addressed. Her practice encompasses comprehensive work ethics and great legal standards. She was completely professional in her representation and was truly dedicated to what she does. She was far more knowledgeable than the opposing counsel.
This would not be a complete review without praising the team Maya works with. The senior partner in her firm was available for consultation and their teamwork was impressive. Her staff was incredible. Each was professional, highly knowledgeable, friendly and easy to work with. I felt like they cared about me personally and cared about my case. Everyone was there for “me” through all the twists and turns that occurred in my case. Their responsive and timely communication, dedication, experience, and actions were second to none.
Maya Shulman is the epitome and embodiment of integrity. She was an invaluable ally and an excellent advocate for me. Her due diligence, high ethical standards, knowledge of family law and determination in the handling of my case made it possible to settle this seemingly impossible divorce.
She gave me the ability to do what I would never have been able to do for myself. From the very first meeting until the final resolution, I always felt fortunate and grateful that I had such a qualified professional representing me and my future.

Ms. Shulman is a marvelous attorney. She is candid, forthright and so knowledgeable. She is responsive to her clients' factual and emotional needs. Ms. Shulman is, quite simply, excellent.

I cannot say enough about Maya. I recently worked with her on an interstate custody case and the level of representation she provides is top notch. Her entire office is fabulous. I'm so happy to now have someone to refer to in LA without hesitation, as she will be my "go to" attorney on any family law needs I have down that way. I have worked with other attorneys in Southern California and their knowledge, experience, and level of client service/communication pales in comparison to that of Maya and her staff.
