“We have been Maria’s clients since the mid-1990’s and developed more than an attorney-client relationship. One of our cases resulted in the need for extensive surgery, and we struggled with our insurance to cover the cost of the initial surgery and recovery. Maria was instrumental in resolving all of these issues. Successful legal representation can only be judged by the outcome and the client’s overall satisfaction. In our case, we have been more than pleased with the results and Maria’s expertise.” Rose and David F-W
