    • I recommend John Barger.
    • I hired John 1-3 years ago.
    • John handled my Estate Planning matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    It was great to find a lawyer like Max who understands the idiosyncrasies in the needs and wishes of an unmarried same sex couple. He exuded both professionalism and empathy in each session and made sure that we both understood before we could move forward. He completed all our requirements in a timely fashion at a reasonable cost. In addition, we were very pleased with the policy of Ackerman Brown to allow potential clients meet with the lawyer for 30+ minutes prior to engagement at no cost.

    Max is very conscientious, responsive and thoughtful. He anticipated and had a solution for my estate planning issue before I knew it was an issue. He quickly responded to my unique needs and helped me understand the process in friendly non-lawyer terms. Max is an expert in this area of law. I recommend Max and his services without reservations.

    Max Barger developed estate plans for my wife and me, including wills and ancillary documents. He always responded quickly to our inquiries, either by email or telephone, and helped develop innovative solutions to complex problems. I would not hesitate to call upon Max again whenever we need legal expertise in the future.
