I was referred to Allison by a friend who worked with her. I am so happy I decided to hire her. She was quick to respond to all my questions. She looked out for my best interests and recommended stuff that I didn't even know I was entitled too. She helped me reach an amicable divorce settlement. She is also very upfront with her fees and her rates are reasonable. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a lawyer of the highest integrity.

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.

I'm glad to say, I could not be more pleased with the professionalism, thorough and good organization of Allison while representing me with my divorce. I had set up a initial consult meeting with Allison when I was searching for a lawyer to represent me, then I read of an issue of Allison being reprimanded apparently for an action ( she actually reported herself to the Office of Lawyers Professional Responsibility). Whatever the case was, I understand we're all human, mistakes happen and I decided to proceed with our first meeting. After the initial meeting , I really felt she was who I wanted representing me, now I couldn't be more pleased with my decision. I felt her communication was very professional, but down the earth at the same time. If there was a concern I address that she did not have a clear answer, she used her resources to give me the right information. She did not miss a beat in getting all the details in order and finalizing my divorce efficiently. I will be happy you recommend her to friends and family!

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 see\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.

Allison Maxim handled my divorce case. During mediation she was able to resolve all immediate issues. She handled the divorce efficiently and effectively. Almost a year later she is still very responsive to any inquiries that I have.

Allison Maxim was my counsel for a reduction in maintenance and later a Caron waiver in 2009 through early 2011. Actions included: appearances in family court before a referee; mediation discussions for the Caron waiver; advice on best approaches in settlement strategy; guidance during meetings with the other side; and drafting appropriate documents for corespondence with opposing counsel, the mediator, and the family court referree. Ms. Maxim was both timely and responsive to my multiple concerns which often arise in contentious discussions. Her sound advice and well written documents led to a good outcome as I finished my responsibilties to my ex-wife. I would resommend her highly.
