We are a litigation, business, and immigration firm based in Miami. At
Ayala, we approach the practice of law with a results-oriented pragmatism,
rooted in a strong belief that justice under law is achievable.
We are a modern firm. We believe that innovation, data analysis and
technology are not foreign to but required in today’s legal practice. At
AYALA we strongly care about efficiently handling cases. We analyze case
progress on a weekly basis to make sure how we can more effectively move
them forward to either trial or resolution. We are also frequently
analyzing our historical case data to determine the average time our cases
take to go through the court system. In doing so we account for the nature,
complexity, and the forum in which the case is litigated. This enables us
to set better strategies and make better decisions on aspects of cases that
are within the lawyer’s control and that improve efficiency. This approach
is one, among other things, that makes us add real value to cases, provide
better fee arrangements to our clients, and get better results.
Because we value honesty and integrity. We don’t take shortcuts. At Ayala, you can be sure that you will always have the most honest legal opinion about your case, even if that means not having you as a client. We will review your record and give you an opinion based on rigorous analysis of the facts and many years of experience helping people and small businesses. We will not sacrifice our integrity even in the face of opposing parties’ questionable ethics. We will take the longer, harder, ethical approach.
Because we take pride in our work ethic and we put it at your service. At Ayala, we strive to create a culture and work environment that minimizes any error based on lack of effort, lack of attention to detail, or lack of work—period. We strongly believe that for what you pay for your case, a strong work ethic and competence are the minimum you should get. At the same time, the combination of hard work and competence is what has historically made us obtain successful results for our clients.
Because we believe we add real value to our cases by either winning them or putting you in the best position to win. While other firms take pride on taking your calls, we take pride in adding real value to your case through hard work and strategic, intelligent approach focused on the end result—not billing. We believe that for the dollars you pay us, we add value to your particular problem. To us, the best customer service is results.
Finally, we are a law firm of immigrants, and while that alone does not make us better than anyone, our immigration history is in our DNA. The struggles and sacrifices of coming to this country as immigrants, without resources or basic knowledge of the language, have forged our soul and legal character. We put, whatever that has given us in terms of resilience, to work for your case. We strongly support immigrant entrepreneurship and small businesses. We want to be a reliable, accessible and affordable source of legal support for entrepreneurs and immigrants.
Ayala was born, perhaps fortuitously. In early 2013, Attorney Eduardo A. Maura, the founder, had recently been fired from his job at a large firm doing insurance defense after an argument with his then attorney supervisor.
While working there, Eduardo realized that the billing-centric legal practice was not the type of practice that he wanted to work for or that motivated him. Similarly, his work defending large insurance companies, to aid them avoid, in many cases, responsibility in meritorious cases, was not compatible with his humble background and upbringing. Out of a job, and with the desire to represent the little guy in a competent results-oriented legal practice, he ventured to start Ayala Law PA out of his studio in Le Jeune road in Miami.
Initially representing immigrants in removal proceedings with the help of his mentor Professor Juan Carlos Gomez, his results-oriented approach expanded to other areas like business and consumer litigation. Today, the firm represents small businesses and consumers in complex class action cases against the largest corporations and law firms in the world. But though today we engage in complex litigation, we have not stopped representing immigrants or taking on smaller cases. Eduardo’s goal has always been to build a business model where the firm can do competent legal work efficiently and engage in large or small cases alike.
While the firm is still young, our practical approach to the law, makes us very competitive in today’s hyper-competitive legal market.
