Great and knowledgeable attorney
Ms. Serkova provided comprehensive, detailed consultation about my situation with the employer. She answered all my questions patiently and I was able to make an informative decision based on her recommendations. I definitely recommend talking to her if you have issues with your employer.

Moreover, the attorney displayed a remarkable level of flexibility and adaptability, which made the legal process much smoother. They were always available to answer any questions I had and were open to accommodate my schedule. Their willingness to listen to my concerns and adapt to my needs made me feel like I had a true partner in the legal process. Their attention to detail was also commendable. They took the time to review all of the documentation thoroughly, ensuring that every aspect of my case was considered. They provided me with regular updates and kept me informed at every stage of the process, which made me feel valued and respected as a client. Finally, the attorney made the legal process comfortable and approachable. They explained complex legal concepts in simple terms, which made it easy for me to understand the issues at hand.

5 star rating for a 5 star lawyer. Maya handled a tricky case that other attorneys would not take, and she won it for me where others wouldn’t try. I would trust her and I would tell the same to anyone I know.

Excellent Employment Law Attorney
I am thankful to Maya L. Serkova for everything she has done for me. I have gone through a very unpleasant termination and she was there for me every step of the way. I am the type of person who likes to know all the nuts and bolts of what is going on. Ms. Serkova and her staff were always on top of my case and walked me through the process patiently. She strategically negotiated a great settlement for me. I was really satisfied with the way this firm handled my case.

Recommend this attorney!
I had a medical disability and my employer didn’t want to honor my restrictions and then just terminated me. I had to hire an attorney. I found Ms. Serkova and her firm. I must say that I was impressed at how she handled my case. She was thorough and paid attention to small details. She fought for my case and finally the case resolved in my favor. If you are looking for an employment law attorney, this is the attorney to go to!

Great job!
I have done thorough research about attorneys. I came across Serendib Law Firm APC and decided to give it a shot. First, I want to say I was impressed at how the firm is effective overall. I was always given updates on my case. My case was assigned to Maya L. Serkova. Ms. Serkova has always been available to respond to my questions. She made sure I understood my options. She eventually advised me correctly on my case, and based on her advice, I made the right decision which now in retrospect seems to be an even better outcome than I had imagined at the time. Ms. Serkova is your go-to attorney if you have employment law related issues.
