Mayra Fornos Has Been In Your Shoes
Mayra Fornos knows how fast life can change. She has her own personal experience and knows first-hand the unmet and unrecognized needs and demands of a loved one suffering from a devastating injury.
Mayra became involved with the disabled community more than 25 years ago when her late husband, Ralph, suffered a C5-6 spinal cord injury that rendered him a quadriplegic as the result of a surfing accident. Mayra understands the indescribable physical and emotional challenges the injured and their loved ones face.
Mayra’s personal experience is one of the many attributes that sets her apart from other attorneys. As a result, Fornos Law Firm has an unparalleled approach towards individuals and families that have been similarly affected and are seeking legal help.
Mayra’s goal is simple. To work tirelessly on behalf her clients, and force the wrongdoer — whether it be an individual, a corporation, a governmental agency, entity or a medical provider — to take responsibility and to compensate her client for the devastation and suffering caused as a result of their actions.
