Anna’s extensive education, both in the Russian Federation (where she is also licensed to practice law) and at the Humphreys University Laurence Drivon School of Law, has enabled her to help clients all over Stockton and the surrounding communities get the best possible outcomes in their cases.
Anna belongs to the San Joaquin County Bar Association and serves as Treasurer on the Board of Governors.

Finally, she also volunteers as a Judge Pro Tem in the San Joaquin County Juvenile Traffic Court.
When she’s not working on cases, helping clients face-to-face or in court, volunteering or working with one of the associations she belongs to, Anna spends time with her husband, Dr. Thomas Maples, their two sons – Tommy and Billy – and their family dog, Spot the Great Dane. Together, they travel, play and enjoy each other’s company. Anna loves to zip through a few chapters of a great book and listen to classical music when she has a few rare moments of down time, and you might even catch her watching reality TV with a dish of her favorite dessert.
