One of the best attorneys!
Maya and her law firm recently settled a complex litigation matter for our family. Maya is by far one of the best professionals I have worked with. She was on top of the case from start to finish, always available to talk about the case and absolutely went above and beyond our expectations as far as the settlement. Highly recommended attorney. Thanks for all your help.
