Bio

Maria stands apart for her candid, open approach and fierce determination to find real-life solutions to the issues her clients face.

It was a chance encounter during a routine business matter that brought Maria, an Osgoode Hall Law School graduate, to the offices of Fine & Deo. During that meeting, engaging and outgoing senior lawyer, Mario Deo, struck a conversation with Maria and ended up interviewing her on the spot. Impressed by his excitement about the industry and the passion and expertise the lawyers at Fine & Deo bring to solving their clients’ problems, when Maria was offered a position with the firm, she accepted.

Clients appreciate Maria’s ability to put them at ease as well as the priority she places on providing timely, accurate and practical advice. Careful not to make assumptions, she is a mindful listener who understands that each client’s situation is unique in this ever-changing industry.

Maria writes and speaks extensively on condominium law. She has had work published in Condo Voice magazine and has spoken at ACMO/CCI’s Annual Condominium Conference. She is a member of the Canadian Condominium Institute (CCI) and the Association of Condominium Managers of Ontario (ACMO).
