I would recommend Allison without reserve to anyone needing a divorce attorney. From our very first meeting, it was obvious that Allison was extremely knowledgeable, an excellent listener, and someone who would help me navigate a situation in which I had never imagined myself. I came with many questions, and she helpfully and continually walked me through what the process would look like, always in a kind and understanding manner. My case involved custody issues, division of property, and spousal maintenance, and in a situation that was often acrimonious and emotional, Allison was calm, reassuring, and supportive. At the same time, she was a fierce advocate for me, firmly and assertively fighting for what she felt to to be fair and right. In a situation like divorce, I have learned that you just don’t know what you don’t know. I trust Allison implicitly to know- the law, the facts of my case, and what will be best for me and my kids. I truly can’t imagine having gone through this with anyone else.
Allison Maxim has been representing me the past three years in child custody matters. My case is complicated and complex. Allison’s compassion for looking out for the best interest of a minor with special needs is reassuring. In an emergency situation she was available to guide me through some very sensitive issues from a perspective of a legal stance and from one parent to another. Allison was my stability and voice of reason when all the crazy broke loose, she will always hold a special spot in my heart for all she did for me and my family. Words can never adequately express my gratitude. If you are looking for a calm, respectable, knowledgeable, well seasoned lawyer I highly recommend Allison Maxim.
Allison was my fourth family law attorney in six years. She was the light at the end of a long tunnel that I thought would never end. When Allison and I started this journey together I didn’t have either physical or legal custody rights to my daughter. By our last court date I had FULL physical and legal custody of my daughter and she was a full time part of my life. Allison even came to my house on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to finish a report that had to be delivered Monday morning to the courts. Allison took years’ worth of legal paperwork and he said, she said nonsense and was able to articulate it into a narrative that the judge could really find the truth.
Family law is a very difficult and costly endeavor that I am sure anyone who is reading this is fully aware. Take a deep breath and relax and let Allison lead you through the thorny path and turbulent water to a conclusion that will benefit you and your children.
Maxim Law is an excellent and thorough family law firm. Allison and her staff have helped me on some very difficult issues. I contacted several other family law attorneys, Allison is the only one who would take on my extreme case. Allison holds a down-to-business, matter-of-fact, no-nonsense approach. I highly recommend Allison Maxim as your divorce/family law attorney. You want Allison in your corner.
Maxim Law is best-in-class. An unresponsive initial attorney prompted me to switch firms, and I couldn’t have been happier that I did. Over the course of what proved to be too many months, Allison’s guidance was crucial to ensuring that I made the right decisions to move my case forward. She was an advocate, a confidante, and a true partner in bringing my case from messy to mission accomplished. My situation was complicated because I live overseas and had to develop an unusual custody arrangement, but I would also recommend Maxim Law on more straight-forward cases.
