Posted by a Divorce client,
Maxine has 4 excellent qualities:
1. she can skillfully present and argue a case
2. she listens--to me, the Judge, the other lawyer. Why court is in session she holds the floor because she hears everything and responds accordingly
3. she cares and is client-oriented--she is attentive to my priorities and my budget, and acts with these two things in mind. She was both my second lawyer on a protracted divorce settlement, and, now my post-decree lawyer. The difference I have in priorities is reflected the way she represents me--highly appropriate to each situation.
4. She is up-and-coming and very well networked and liked.
Maxine works for a large firm, and quite a few Judges and a lot of the legal Big Boys in Cook County not only know her, they respect her. I've watched senior lawyers praise her for her ability to listen, get to the heart of the matter, and reach an agreement. Both Judges I have seen her with listen to her sharp, smart words with open ears.
Thanks to Maxine, the Judge now sees what's happening in this case, instead of being drowned out by legal statutes and other chatter. Rulings post-decree with Max have all been in my favor!
