I had the worst nightmare in my family law case before Myava helped me. I had two prior attorneys who billed and billed and didn't get results. Myava went out on a limb for me and what she did was turn my whole case around. I was being robbed for support and my ex neglected our kids. We were able to show how bad they were being treated and I ended up with full custody. She said custody should not be about the sex of a person but about how good they take care of their kids. She made the judge see me and our kids as real people. My kids are safe now. I have peace of mind. And she didn't rob me.

I contracted with Myava R. Escamilla Esq. and she went above and beyond for me. I was really happy with her services and would go back to her anytime. My case was about bankruptcy and my home, which she actually got returned to me after a sale. It's a big relief and words are enough.

Myava was supposed to be helping me with my Chapter 13 Bankruptcy. I have now lost my home with no response from her. I have contacted the Department of Justice.. Hopefully she wont be doing this to anyone else.... Shame on you Myava Escamilla!!!!
