A trial lawyer at heart, Maribel Cruz loves analyzing the law and fitting the law to the facts of her clients’ cases to obtain the biggest benefit.
Ms. Cruz said every family is different thus the analysis always changes whether she has seen the same facts or used the same law. Her ability to think on her feet and provide quick analysis of facts and laws is particularly helpful during trial or deposition.
“To me, my cases are like playing chess,” Ms. Cruz said. “I want to think ahead as far as possible and determine the various likely outcomes so that my clients and I are prepared for any possible scenario.”
The family law process is filled with emotional highs and lows and can be extremely confusing, she said.
“Through it all your attorney should guide you through with strength, determination, and an ability to provide clear and concise information so that you can make informed decisions,” Ms. Cruz said. “Most importantly, I feel a great sense of accomplishment when my clients are satisfied with their outcome and feel that I have provided some solace through a difficult time.”
