Maria served as Deputy Director, Supervising Attorney of the Dallas Family Law Unit, and as a LANWT staff attorney at a domestic violence agency. She has concentrated her practice in the area of family law with an emphasis on providing legal services to individuals and families impacted by domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse or neglect. Maria enjoys leading her team of excellent administrators, managers and staff as they deliver quality legal services and as they grow professionally. Maria has spent most of her professional career dedicated to public interest work having started her career with a legal aid organization while in law school and securing employment with another legal aid organization in Michigan upon her graduation. Maria transitioned into private practice after moving from Michigan to Texas. Maria enjoyed her years in private practice with both a small and a large firm where she practiced in the areas of employment and commercial litigation.
