I hired Maxine for my divorce case. She was very knowledgeable and got straight to the point on all of the issues. She explained the process and what to expect in simple terms. Maxine negotiated a deal that I was very pleased with. I got more than what I was entitled to. I knew I was in good hand after my initial consultation with her. I would highly recommend Maxine.
Maxine has done excellent work. I tried working the system myself prior to finding and hiring Maxine. Don’t do it, you need a competent professional like Maxine. Dealing with DCSS or the courts is not always a fair or efficient system, particularly for fathers. I had additional payments that I had made to the mother, I showed the courts, DCSS and nothing. You need a pro who knows how to work with the system. Maxine came in and was able to show proof of my payments to the courts and DCSS. Next, I was selling my home and DCSS had placed a lien on it. Well, with a homestead, they are not supposed to do that, but they did. Maxine to the rescue, she got the lien released and I was able to sell my home as I legally should have been able to in the first place. Finally, DCSS comes after me again, this time they garnish my bank account. Guess what, I have a court order and they are not supposed to do that. But, I just got in touch with Maxine, she went down to the offices of DCSS personally and had them send me my money back. Maxine is fair, efficient and a smart and aggressive attorney. I highly recommend Maxine.
Maxine was my representative. On day one I explained my child custody case. I was then given the specifics on possible agenda from opposing counsel; as well as possible outcomes. My anxiety was high needless to say. But knowing what to expect helped. Also, I could tell Maxine wanted to represent my interest well – better then what I myself wanted to do; In short, Maxine was in my corner. The case was wrapped up as I hoped. But even before that happened – I was ready and willing to take the gloves off; given I felt I was well represented. I hope legal issues are behind me; but should they come back – I will definitely lookup Maxine again.
I hired Maxine to help and guide me through a divorce. It was not a pleasant experience (Not because of Maxine) She was a great help and really made it as easy as possible. very professional, Knowledgeable and to the point.
I retained Maxine to help with my divorce and final judgment. Throughout the entire process, she and her staff were nothing short of professional, knowledgeable, and supportive. I had many questions regarding division of assets and child custody, and Maxine’s expertise was clear from the beginning. She’s tough and realistic; I knew she was always thinking and acting on my best interest and the welfare of my child. I really could not have asked for anything more. Divorce is never easy, and Maxine and her staff took a lot of stress off of me. The entire process could not have gone a better way.
My case was handled in the utmost professional manner. Maxine always went out of her way to get me the most visitation and splitting of property for my divorce. I started with her while she was working for another law firm nearly 2 years ago. When she started her own practice I decided to go with her because of her vast knowledge in family law and her many years of experience. I’m highly satisfied with the outcome of my divorce and like I stated she will always go out of her to best help you out.
I highly recommend her, not only did she give me sound legal advice regarding family law matters, but she also provided me some very helpful and practical life advice regarding my marital situation. Maxine was always available when I needed to get a hold of her … and she is always on top of things from court dates and filings to returning your call or email. I don’t normally write reviews (i.e. on restaurants), but I felt like I should pay it forward on this one … because when you’re going through a divorce and trying to navigate through the court system, there’s too much at stake to just take a chance on anyone.
It’s my first time hiring an attorney and didn’t know what to expect. Maxine made it easy and explained to me everything step by step. Maxine will get to the point and makes sure you know what you are getting into and makes you feel good about what you are signing. Will definitely recommend her to represent her!
Right from the start she was really interested in all the details of the matter and really drove the case. She was always responsive to emails or calls, working my case from 1500 miles away. At no time did I feel like I was being billed unnecessarily.
It was a very unusual case. Anyone who knows what a 3100 is knows the outcomes are uncertain. Even the minors counsel said she had never seen a successful one. But Maxine wrote a decisive brief and brought us forward and through with ALL my expectations met.
I had the privilege of hiring Maxine for my legal issues and so happy that I found her. Not only is she professional and intelligent, Maxine went out of her way many times to help me regarding my case. Overall happy with her work and would highly recommend her to family and friends.
Maxine represented me in a DV case whereas i was the respondent.
We were able to get the case dismissed with no issues.
She is clear in communication and will respond to your calls and emails.
I had called around to interview a new attorney. I had a prior attorney so I knew what to expect and what to ask. When I spoke to Maxine on the phone, I was impressed. I retained her for my contested divorce. Maxine was straight to the point and very professional. Whenever I contacted Maxine whether my email or phone, she was always very responsive. I couldn’t say the same about my prior attorney, he took days to call or email me back. In court, she did not back down which helped me get joint custody of my children. At the very end, we settled but I was so glad that I had Maxine along the way. I wouldn’t want to do it again, but if I did, I know who to call. She is an excellent attorney!!
When I encountered visitation and child support issues with my child’s mother, I had no choice but to seek legal assistance for my matter. I was very fortunate to find Maxine to represent me. With Maxine’s help, I was able to receive ample visitation/legal custody rights with my child, and she helped me avoid paying for my child’s mother’s attorney fees, while keeping my own fees for her service low.
Maxine’s professionalism and her experience and background in family law is second to none. She always responded to my calls and email in a timely manner. Overall, I was satisfied with her representation.
