Max has been my personal lawyer for more than 35 years and handled a variety of situations, which include: Real Estate, Employment, Investments and Wills & Trusts. I have always found him to be very knowledgeable and honest. Although his practice is extensive, and sometimes a little slow in responding, I have found him always responsive to my needs. On many occasions his simply writing a letter on my behalf has settled problems. I would not hesitate to use his counseling on any legal matter.

Lost my house because of this bad lawyer.
He offered me a discounted fee but kept asking for more money, later I found out he was doing nothing.
Has a very bad reputation in the area, wish I knew before.
Stay away and if this is your attorney fire him ASAP!

Mr. Hagen was my attorney. We never signed an engagement letter. He never, clearly, defined the billing arrangements. But more importantly, when I asked for more documents to support his bill, he berated and threatened me with legal action. I in turn have considered filing a claim with the Florida Bar. Against my better judgement I have paid him his fees but I would stay away from him. I would also recommend doing a search with the Florida Bar who has admonished him in 2007.
