Mr. Mayoras is a rock solid attorney. If you want representation in a Northern Virginia criminal case, trust me, you will have no regrets if you select Mr. Mayoras as your Defense Attorney.
In August 2015, my daughter was a victim of assault and pressed charges against her aggressor. The aggressor counter-charged my daughter. Mr. Mayoras was selected as her public defender. Prior to the hearing, Mr. Mayoras engaged with the prosecutor and maintained contact with us. On the day of the trial I observed other cases prior to ours being heard, I saw weak defense attorneys lose repeatedly to the tough prosecutor. As my daughter was called forward I started to worry. Mr. Mayoras was a rock solid attorney as he cross-examined the defendant who counter-charged my daughter capitalizing on every weakness and inconsistency. He not only had my daughter’s counter-charge dismissed but his piercing argument ensured that the aggressor received a conviction. I was absolutely impressed.
A year later my son broke up with his girlfriend. In her anger, in March 2016, she chose to file charges of strangulation, assault, and battery saying that my son tried to kill her. A felony warrant was issued for the strangulation and a misdemeanor warrant was issued for the assault and battery. At that moment our lives changed forever. If convicted, my son, a United States Marine, was facing a five-year prison sentence and discharge from the military with no hope of ever finding decent employment in the United States. Life as he knew it would be over for the rest of his life. I called Mr. Mayoras to take the case even though I knew he only practiced in Northern Virginia. Although he warned me that he had no insight into the Norfolk courts, based on my previous observations, I believed that if anyone could save my son, it would be Mr. Mayoras. Upon taking the case, he did extensive research and kept us informed of his strategy to win. With months of preparation we went to trial in October 2016. Like my previous encounter in court a year earlier I observed multiple weak defense attorneys lose to the tough prosecutors leading to multiple convictions. At the end of the day, the last case to be heard, my son was called to trial. I started to get concerned as the prosecutor started to build a case against my son. However, as every prosecuting witness was brought forward, Mr. Mayoras processed every word that was stated exploiting every weakness and inconsistency in their testimony through cross-examination. He challenged the relevance of certain witnesses who as a result did not even get to testify. Then it was the time for the defense to take action. Short, straight, and to the point he built a bullet-proof defense with only two witnesses and the defendant. Sharp, smart, and one step ahead of the game, he even recalled one of the prosecuting witnesses and manipulated the individual to testify in favor of my son. The strength in the prosecutor’s case had dwindled by the end of the trial through the skill and mental agility of Mr. Mayoras.
The judge dismissed both charges and my son was a free man with a life ahead of him.
Think about it, Mr. Mayoras won this case despite having never entered the Norfolk courthouse previous to this.
I challenge you not just to take my word for it. You have one chance to win or lose a case. Call him and find out when he is next in court. It will cost you nothing to see him first hand in action as he handles his case. I promise that you will be absolutely impressed. You don’t have to choose him, but please make your selection only after seeing him handle a case in court.
I am in the military and am due to rotate to Florida next year. My only regret is that Mr. Mayoras is not bar certified in Florida!
Good luck to you. Choose your defense attorney wisely.
