"Max is an outstanding, knowledgeable and ethical attorney. We were both prosecutors in the Bronx DA’s office, where he was an outstanding trial attorney. In private practice, I have found that is remains current on the latest changes in the law, runs his firm effectively, earnestly and capably, and i can always rely on him for honest, reasonable and accurate legal advice. I have referred cases to him with confidence, and will continue to do so. His charity work is also commendable. AV material!" - Private Practice Attorney
