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!!
