Maira F. Carrillo

Maira F. Carrillo has always had a desire to help individuals who are facing difficult moments in their lives. She began her legal career as a file clerk and gradually worked her way into becoming a paralegal working closely with clients in family law matters. After working in this capacity for several years, she decided she could better serve her community as a lawyer who could advocate for individuals who were facing family law conflicts.
