I can’t say enough great things about Ms. Maxim. I retained her after 3 years (3 attorneys) into my high conflict divorce. The first 3 attorneys were well intended and nice people, but they didn’t understand emotional abuse - ALISON MAXMIN does! She was the first person in 4 years to listen to me. She made me feel safe and protected, something I desperately needed. I would highly recommend her to anyone! And she is a boss in the court room!!!!

I have worked with both of these attorneys in professional setting. They are excellent advocates and of the highest caliber. As a family law attorney, they are always on my short list for referrals to friends and family.

I hired Allison to help me with a child support case. She was very efficient and had great communication. I felt like I was a priority and the matter was resolved quickly. I would strongly recommend her and her firm to represent you.

Allison has been working with me on an extremely sensitive, and complicated case involving international custody for (on and off) the better part of a decade. She has never once failed to go above and beyond to protect my interests, as well as the interests of my children. Allison is more than an attorney, she is a staunch ally. I would happily recommend her for any case, because she has proven that she is willing, and able to take on the worst of storms.

Establishing parental rights as a never-married father was intimidating at best. Maxim created a palpable process, was accessible, and was a pleasure to work with.

Allison was excellent to work with. I was seeking a partner I could trust, who had my best interests in mind, who gave candid but compassionate advice on sensitive and complex matters, and who was very responsive. Allison checked every box - and helped me make smart decisions along the way. Her preparation and experience proved invaluable throughout, and I felt like I had a real partner. I would highly recommend Maxim Law.

Allison is courteous and professional and also black and white about the facts of the case which is an excellent skill to have in these highly emotional affairs!

She's a genuine human being, full of love for her clients. She won't destroy you with retainer bills, very accommodating with payments. She would advice you even when you have not retained her if it's urgent or needed, out of mercy and compassion. No one beats Allison maxim when it comes to caring for her clients and communicating on weekend or holidays if needed. The word SIMPLE defines her honorably!Solomon

I would highly recommend Allison. Both Allison and Shannon were very responsive to my needs. Allison explained every step of the process so I could clearly understand the legal complexities of going through a divorce. Most importantly, I actually felt like Allison cared about me and my individual case. Allison’s and Shannon’s responsiveness, care and concern helped to reduce the stress of a very difficult time. Allison was recommended by an associate after my previous attorney was not responsive, did not simplify the legal process of divorce and seemed most interested in the financial gain of handling my case. I was glad I made the switch. I have and will continue to recommend Allison to family, friends and anyone else seeking legal representation.

Allison and Shannon went above and beyond their job descriptions in order to assist me in my case. The difficulty of my case was exacerbated due to numerous variables. Allison accepted the challenge and I respect and appreciate her level of professionalism.

Allison and her team were incredibly responsive and helped me through a difficult situation. Every situation is different, but for my divorce, I was very happy with their services from the warm feelings I got with in office meetings, very quick response time, and overall professionalism. I would recommend their services to friends and family.

Simple and stress free. Never had the impression that they were trying to run up the bill. Listened to me and respected my wishes. Would recommend to anyone going through a divorce. They take the stress out of the already stressful situation.

I'm glad to say, I could not be more pleased with the professionalism, thorough and good organization of Allison while representing me with my divorce. After the initial meeting, I really felt she was who I wanted representing me, now I couldn't be more pleased with my decision. I felt her communication was very professional, but down the earth at the same time. If there was a concern I addressed that she did not have a clear answer, she used her resources to give me the right information. She did not miss a beat in getting all the details in order and finalizing my divorce efficiently. I will be happy you recommend her to friends and family!
