I am very sad to hear the news about Maria. During my very happy years at Hill Dickinson, she was a bundle of energy and fun. A formidable lawyer who developed a fantastic team around her and a great practice. She brought a fresh approach to what was then a very traditional environment. Whenever I saw Maria after I left the firm, she was unfailingly charming and friendly. She would go out of her way to say hello. Often, I would hear Maria's laugh before I saw her! My thoughts are with Maria's family and all those who worked with her at Hill Dickinson. Patrick Foss
