Maria O. Keller
Maria got the calling to practice law after years spent as a stay-at-home mom, raising three children in Cumming, GA.
Maria’s youngest child, Jordan, has special needs and her challenges in life inspired Maria to represent kids with special needs and their families through all the specially difficult aspects of life…from building a strong family unit – even in the face of divorce – getting the needed services for the children, navigating the school and IEP years, to guardianship and life management beyond childhood.
Maria is guided by what is in the best interest of the child and strives to keep family relationships happy and healthy during trying times.
