"Back in 2017 I had a bad situation happened at work in LA county. I did not know my rights or what to do. I have nothing but good things to say about the Serendib Law Firm. I worked mainly with Maya L. Serkova. She was always on top of things and replied to all my emails and calls promptly. I was taken care of and couldn't have asked for a better team to have covered my case! I was very impressed with the work ethic. The whole ordeal was very stressful, however, Ms. Serkova helped me navigate the process while responding to my goals. She was wonderful and I was very satisfied with the outcome." Lana D.
★★★★★
Maya L. Serkova is an excellent attorney who really takes care of her clients in employment litigation matters. Ms. Serkova is very knowledgeable, detail oriented, and above all, she delivers the results. She is dedicated to clients' need in each and every case she takes. Ms. Serkova is a strategic litigator and effective negotiator. Her staff is very polite, pleasant and attentive. She always returns phone calls at her earliest convenience and provides updates about a case in a timely manner. It was a real pleasure working with Ms. Serkova. I recommend her as an outstanding Plaintiff's Employment Law Attorney. Anna P.
