Ethical, Professional, Knowledable
Ethical, professional, efficient, thorough, and knowledgeable. That is what my experience with Mr. Antonio Maldonado and Maldonado Meyers LLP has always been when seeking legal counsel. The expertise that they offer regarding Mexican law in conjunction with honest, rapid, and thorough communication on my matter has made me, the client, very satisfied. He and his colleagues have always made themselves available to me when I have questions or seek clarification regarding my matter. As a whole, the entire law group is top notch in terms of customer service, communication and efficiency. I highly recommend Antonio Maldonado and Maldonado Meyers LLP to anybody seeking legal counsel with matters regarding Mexican law and/or cross-border legal matters.

Antonio Maldonado -- Mexico Attorney
I recently closed a complicated and rushed real estate transaction in Mexico and retained Antonio Maldonado. I also have used Antonio in the past. I cannot say enough positive things about this guy. He is extremely bright, professional, reliable, prompt, and has loads of integrity. I would not hesitate for a moment to use him again and while I do not do this often I strongly encourage others to use him. Antonio was available to me 24/7 as were other in his firm, he was patient and a clear and concise communicator. He also listened very well and always repeated back to me what he felt I was saying. Lastly, there were times that he needed to be "tough" in my transaction both with me and others and he did not hesitate to do so which I respect. Again, if you have any legal matters that you need assistance with in Mexico you should consider Antonio.

Honest and knowledgeable attorney
Mr. Maldonado was very honest about what was involved in my case and what we could expect from the legal process. He was very knowledgeable about the rules that had to be followed in defending our case. He did a great job at it for which we are grateful for.

Always on top of things
I met Antonio four months ago. I thought that he would be capable of handling my case from the outset but, possibly because of my experiences with other lawyers, did not think he would be as responsive, diligent and interested in helping me get my case resolved as he is. I trust him and I trust his judgment.

Dynamic, responsive and experienced
Mr. Maldonado and his team helped us solve an international dispute our business was involved in for several years before approaching him. His experience in getting business deals done helped us considerably in having settled the dispute in terms favorable to us.

Compassionate, Dedicated Heart
Antonio Maldonado is helping us internationally, with challenges related to a U.S. sponsored orphanage in Mexico. Antonio has responded to our specific needs by being willing to work on a recent national holiday, and to give up his family time to attend an important meeting, in Mexico, on a Saturday. This attorney exceeds our expectations. He has earned our trust and gratitude.

good lawyer
Antonio and his office in Tijuana helped our family inherit my fathers properties in Ensenada and sell them. He helped us develop one property into commercial rentals. He is a very good lawyer. Very proffessional.
