"Maria Speth has been representing our companies for almost ten years. When people ask about my attorney, I always say that if I had 4 sets of new radial tires, I would wear out every one of them, and would still not find someone as talented and with as much integrity as Maria. I have used attorneys for more than 30 years and Jaburg Wilk is the only firm I trust with all of our legal needs. Their legal staff is creative and they all know how to think outside the box, never missing a trick…all a must when doing business on the Internet."
