TESTIMONIAL: “Among several law offices I spoke to, Avenida and Diaz were, by a mile, the most conscientious and the most transparent. From the start, Kristine Avenida understood exactly what I needed and what my situation was. She kept in close touch throughout my case, guiding proceedings with a firm hand and going above and beyond what I had expected. The experience was very reassuring. This is a very focused and very organised firm, who helped my case on track throughout a stressful period, on a tight deadline. Their fees are very reasonable.
