I want to thank Maria for her professionalism and dedication to help me. I was facing 6 years in prison and she managed to reduce my charges and I only got probation time. From the minute I spoke with her during the free consultation, she provided me with the possible solutions to my case and ways she could defend me. She fought very hard and kept me informed about every step of my case and court proceedings. She is more than a 5 star attorney.

We paid for a consultation hoping that Maria Amaya would be the attorney we could hire to represent our case. We paid $150 consult fee and sat with her for 40 minutes. She indicated twice during the consult that she would get back to us but nothing happened. We called Elena Alcala back, her legal assistant, who told us that Ms. Amaya would have never said she would call us back, but would give her the message. It has been 3 months now and Ms. Amaya has not contacted us.

I loved Maria Amaya as my attorney, she always gave me the advise on what I needed to do in my case. She called me to ask me how I was doing & if I had any questions for her regarding my treatment. She would allow me to make appointments with her according to my schedule. Maria Amaya made me feel like she cared about me & wanted the best for me in my case. She is so professional & yet makes you feel like she's your friend..I always tell my friends & families to go to Maria Amaya's office for any questions regarding legal matters. Thanks again-Maria Amaya for being the best attorney I could ever ask for!
Burke Smith, Bankruptcy and debt Attorney
Relationship: Worked together on matter
I worked with attorney Maria Amaya on a case which involved both bankruptcy (one of my main areas of practice) and DUI/DWI issues (which is one of several areas Ms. Amaya focuses on). I had heard a lot about her from a mutual acquaintance and from working with her confirmed that she definitely is one of the sharpest attorneys in her area of expertise. Maria is smart, focused and quick to find the important issues that will be the focus of the case and determine the legal outcome. I'm glad I know her and will be consulting with her in the future as regards both DUI and personal injury issues. I can tell she is both knowledgeable and a fierce advocate for her clients.
