Crista Marichalar handled my case for me which involved settling my late father’s estate in the interest of my mother who was his beneficiary. His Will was, unfortunately, not written by Mrs. Marichalar. When she and her staff attempted to get the Will probated, the judge found a discrepancy in signatures of one of the witnesses and because of that, the judge delayed the probate. This caused me undue inconvenience in trying to settle my dad’s Estate on behalf of my mom since I was the Executrix of my dad’s estate. Now Ms.Maricharlar had to locate that witness who at the time of the writing of the Will, was working for another law firm. Now, the witness was no longer working for the previous law firm and could not be found. This required much time and dedication on behalf of Ms. Marichalar and her staff to try to track down this person, which after much effort, was found. However, after locating the witness, she was not readily agreeing to appear in court and testifying before the judge, that indeed both signatures were hers evident in the Will and the error was hers.
As stated, this turn of events required much time and energy and dedication of service to client for this situation to be resolved in my favor, but with Ms. Marichalar’s tenacity and determination to serve her client in a most professional manner, the situation was resolved with the Will probated and my mom’s legal interests were protected and my execution of the responsibilities laid before me could continue. I could never repay my attorney for the service, dedication, determination, and professionalism she demonstrated in helping me in a time of grief and despair. Ms. Marichalar would not give up until she saw the situation resolved as only it should be. I feel it important to state as well, Ms. Marichalar was readily available when needed and returned calls when necessary in a timely manner without attaching an additional charge to her services. This does suggest that she is compassionate and a dedicated professional as well as an Attorney worthy of recognition not only by her clients but by her peers as well.
