Maya is passionate about the practice of family law. She has a keen understanding of the deeply personal issues and emotions involved in this area of practice.
Before joining the Family Law Group, Maya clerked for the Public Defender’s Offices in Alameda and Santa Clara counties, drafting and arguing motions and representing indigent adults at misdemeanor arraignments and plea hearings.
Maya approaches legal issues with an open mind and surprising depth. She is a good listener. Her experiences teaching in the Navajo Nation and her time spent living in Europe give her an advantage when communicating with clients of all backgrounds and cultures.
