About Maria

Learn Maria’s areas of practice.

Since secondary school, Maria knew she was destined to become an attorney. Her righteous personality, coupled with her conviction to protect others inspired her interest in law. As founder of MVP Law Group in Encino, Maria focuses on assisting families with Estate Planning, legacy preservation, Personal Injury, and Bankruptcy protection.

Maria began her legal career at the district attorney’s office in St. Petersburg, Russia. After graduating from St. Petersburg State University with a bachelor’s degree in Jurisprudence, she moved to the U.S. Shortly thereafter she obtained her Juris Doctor’s law degree from the University of West Los Angeles. Despite having to navigate the complexities of living in a new country while caring for a newborn baby, Maria passed the California Bar Exam, one of the most challenging in America, on her first attempt. She went on to work at CT Corporation in Los Angeles, where she learned the fundamentals of business-entity formation, management, and procedures. After obtaining her license, Maria worked at the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office and volunteered at public counsel before establishing her legal practice.

Maria creates customized Estate plans, Trusts, and Wills for her clients, many from Calabasas and the Valley, and helps families manage their affairs without interference from government or other external entities.

Nevertheless, the stereotypical ‘attorney temperament’ does not define Maria. Instead, she has an unapologetic fervor for safeguarding the most vulnerable members of our community, particularly the elderly, children, and adults with special needs, who are often susceptible to neglect and financial abuse.

Maria openly laments the impassive and reactive attitude that society has towards Estate Planning and legacy preservation. As a seasoned speaker on this discipline of law and as respected member of WLALA (Women Lawyer Association of Los Angeles), NAELA (National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys), and Wealth Counsel, Maria believes that procrastination stems from both ignorance and avoidance to address a seemingly uncomfortable and overwhelming issue. Hence, Maria’s mantra “Learn, learn, and learn some more.” Her personal quest is to educate people about the negative impacts of not having an estate plan or renewing an outdated Will or Trust, often presenting real-life examples to emphasize her message.

As a devoted wife and proud mother of three, Maria celebrates her life by spending quality time with her family and riding horses in her spare time. When asked what she does for a living, her typical response is ‘I provide peace of mind’.

Car accident
This attorney, has been the best thing had happened to me! I've been in accidents before and soe attorneys promise things and never do what they tell you they would do. ! Maria explained everything and her team was very helpful updating me with my case and fighting even when insurance made it very difficult. Maria got me to a great dr. and had her representative Jeff also providing me with rentals and uber rides to get to the dr when needed and did not pay a cent out of pocket. my experience was grwat and I would recommend this attorney for any needs you encounter.

Great Job
I was a little skeptical with all the bad reviews but I had to see for myself because my friend spoke highly of her. I set up a meeting with the attorney and she explained everything to me and has been by my side every step of the way. Honestly this was my first accident in 30 yrs I didn't know what to do or where to go. They helped me get my car repaired and my doctor for my therapy's was so sweet, I enjoined visiting her office. I got updates constantly. I was happy with my settlement and I can't thank her enough for what shes done for me, from being lost and confused shes helped me and guided me. Thank you Maria for your professionalism and your staff that's been nothing but helpful.

Will Highly Recommend
Maria helped me save my house when it was about to be sold by the bank! I am so grateful for that. Also she helped me with my overall debt. It was completely dischaged in bankruptcy. She was very patient with me, explained all the process and guided me through every step. She did not mind late appointments and always accomodated me. I will highly recommend her.
