I hired mr. Livingston in November to handle a complicated landlord case for my family. From the first conversation we had i knew we were in excellent hands. His dedication to our cases, knowledge of the law, and compassion to right the wrong allowed us the exact outcome we needed. I now with confidence have mr. Livingston working on several other matters for myself unrelated to the previous case.
Don't be fooled by a fancy law firm title some of the best legal minds dont work for huge firms. The proof is in our cases as the big law firm attorney couldnt hold her own against him.
I highly recommend you hire mr.Livingston.
Maxwell represented me in a mess that I was left with from a previous relationship. They filed bankruptcy and suddenly their sole debt became mine and I was being served at the door with no previous knowledge the debt existed. I am thankful I had Maxwell to make sense of the situation and to get me through it. Maxwell genuinely cares about his clients.
We worked with several family lawyers in the past. We were incredibly disappointed with every last one. We had someone who was considered the best in the state and wrote books on family law used by the courts. We also had a high priced specialized family lawyer. Both were terrible and made no effort to get us favorable results. Maxwell went in and worked his hardest to get us the results that we needed. He is the first lawyer we have ever had that actually opened their mouth in court and didn't just lay down like a dead dog letting the other party get whatever they wanted. If we would have had Maxwell from the beginning, we would have gotten a much better outcome years ago. I also appreciate the time he is willing to speak to clients on the phone. He seems to actually care about what he is doing and it shows is his dedication.
Atty Livingston has been assisting me with several issues. His help with unemployment secured benefits for me. I am confident he will continue to do a good job for me. I am thankful so far on how he is handling my case.
Attorney Maxwell picked up the broken pieces and awful mistakes a former law firm did in regards to my social security disability claim. After being denied twice because of missed information and laziness by the initial law firm Attorney Maxwell worked very hard and diligently to turn around my case. In very little time Attorney Maxwell secured a hearing date and was successful in obtaining disability benefits for me. I can now breathe easier because I can rest when I need to through out the day.
Attorney Maxwell was fantastic during the hearing.
He has worked hard for me and been very reasonable with his fee. Moreover, from the moment he made one small error, he switched to contingency fee because he felt that was the right thing to do. A truly hard working, fair and responsible attorney. I highly recommend him.
Offered to write letters to the creditors himself pro-bono! Turns out it wasn't necessary, but, I'm very grateful to him for his help and reassurance at a difficult time.
I am 40 years old, and have owned five different companies. Have unfortunately had to employ attorneys on many different occassions for various reasons over the years.
A few things seem very constant with attorneys as a whole : Arrogance...never seem to have any answers... unwilling to provide assistance whatsoever until the check is in the hand... and they are mostly unwilling to litigate and would rather "settle" the case.
I have found quite the opposite thus far from Mr. Livingston.
I find an eager, knowledgeable, trustworthy attorney, that seems to really want to help people.
Customer service, explaining clients rights and options in full, and keeping the client informed seems to be some of his attributes.
Many times we (clients) get sold on the "bigger is better", and thus, gravitate towards bigger names when needing a lawyer... but... the truth is, they all passed the same bar, they are all equally qualified, and what sets one apart from the rest... is the time and effort they will put into your case.
Mr. Livingston seems to be very willing to put in the time and effort to make sure his clients are getting their rights and their say in court.
I would definitely recommend Mr. Livingston to anybody, and would hope that if you need assistance, you would at least give him a call during your search for an attorney... you will understand what I mean once you talk to a few different attorneys.... a breath of fresh air for sure.
