Maria advocates for business litigation clients across a wide range of disputes.

As a former state Supreme Court clerk with hands-on experience on a variety of high-profile cases, Maria tailors her legal writing to what judges and law clerks really want to see from litigants: clear, no-nonsense arguments.

Maria represents both corporations and individuals in cases involving contracts, trusts and estates, and governmental investigations. She also assists clients whose everyday business requires them to navigate a complex web of federal and state statutes governing everything from privacy to warranties to advertising.
