In mid-2014, I made a horrible decision to drink and drive. I ran a red light and crashed my car into another vehicle carrying an elderly woman. Both her and I escaped with no injuries, something which I am immeasurably thankful for, but I knew in the aftermath that without a fast and competent response, I could easily end up in jail. Both cars were totaled, and I was booked as blowing a .2% BAC.
Max was recommended to me by a couple friends/co-workers as being personable and capable, so I took their word for it and gave him a call. He did not judge me for what I had done, which I really appreciated, and we quickly worked out an approach that was suited to my situation.
When it came time for court, Max was great about meeting up with me before my appearances, to make sure everything was in order and that i was comfortable with how things were preceding. I was quite worried, and with good reason. I ended up being charged with 3 criminal counts, and 3 traffic violations....I really expected I would spend time in jail.
How he did it....I honestly have no idea, but Max managed to get me into diversion (removing the DUI), and to get the other 2 criminal counts dropped, in addition to 1 of the traffic violations. I cannot describe the feeling of relief I had leaving court that day, after many months of agonizing over whether or not I would end up with a record, or even losing my job.
None of this would have been possible without Max's experience and specific attention to my case, I highly recommend him to anyone who lands themselves in a situation similar to mine.
Thank you, Max
I had received a DUII citation in the spring of '14. This being my potential third in 10 years I was facing a possible lifetime revocation of my ODL as well as at least a month jail time and multiple thousands in fines.
Max took a look at my case and first fought the DMV and was able to get my lifetime revocation dropped to a one year suspension based on the way I was wrongly stopped. Max then proceeded to negotiate with the DA and through a thorough knowledge of the legal system and a keen eye for details was able to get me through this process with only 10 days road crew and the minimum allowed $1k fine.
Max's representation of my case far and away exceeded my expectations. My life would have been significantly altered should this not gone the way it did.
You can't underestimate the power of a good, experienced attorney, and to me Max Mizejewski of MJM Law office is all of that. Max was my attorney for my duii case. Being a first time offender, all of my friends told me not to get a lawyer, I would receive diversion regardless. Where I got into trouble was when I violated my diversion agreement and was subsequently called back into court on a show cause order. With already knowing Max, I hired him again. His strategy of negotiating with the city prosecutor before court paid off, as they reached agreement of two days road crew without my diversion being revoked. This was both an important and relieving step that occurred before the judge called my name. It's a testament to his experience - he knows all the city prospectors. If you were or are in a situation like mine, Max can help you out. Don't take advise from anyone, talk to a true professional like Max.
I recently had a DUII in the state of Oregon, Max Mizejewski gave me the facts and guided me through the legal process. He is thorough and kept me informed of all possible outcomes based on my case and helped me in get the best result. I highly recommend Max.
Max helped me with my out-of-state DUII and felony pot charge, getting me into a "divergence" program that will eliminate the DUII, and getting the felony refiled as a misdemeanor. Overall he was extremely helpful and kept me well-informed throughout the process. He was kind and represented me well in court, and made it so I only had to return to Oregon once.
Max Mizejewski is extremely knowledgeable, dependable and open-minded in his work, and his positive attitude makes even dreadful situations seem much less overwhelming. While traveling through Oregon, I was charged with marijuana and marijuana product possession (after an unlawful search and despite my physician’s recommendation, though obtained in my home state rather than in Oregon). Because of Mr. Mizejewski, all of the charges were dismissed (with the minimal fine). He was exceptionally sharp, thoughtful and attentive throughout the entire ordeal, and his assistant, Robin, was really helpful, as well. I highly recommend MJM Law Office and would like to use this opportunity to thank Mr. Mizejewski for a job well done!!
Take Notice . . . Stop Your Search for a 1st Class DUII & Criminal Defense Attorney here. I've used Max twice and have been Extremely Satisfied with his efforts and final outcomes.
I was facing sentencing of a Criminal Felony and Misdemeanor Charges and he negotiated them into a Misdemeanor and a Traffic Fine. He has yet to disappoint me.
Not only is he Professional, Knowledgeable, Devoted, and Produces Outstanding Results . . . . Max is Approachable, Trustworthy, and Works Well with Clients. I'm normally skeptic towards Attorneys and Professionals, but not with Max. He installed with me an undenialble Trust & Faith again. You'll appreciate his efforts and results.
One More Positive Note, should you every need to be kept informed or need any assistance involving your case . . . . Max's Assistant, Robin is terrific and shares the same outstanding qualities as Max.
After an unfortunate traffic infraction last year, I was left with a potentially hefty penalty. Without having the tools to effectively navigate this difficult situation I called Mr. Mizejewski based on his excellent reputation. I could not have been happier! Max provided me with several clear, simple, and honest options. Upon following his instructions I was cleared of all charges and not a single penny was lost. I would highly recommend Max for his quick, honest, and easy to follow advice!
Living out of state I was at a loss about the laws of Oregon as well as who to hire as an attorney. I decided on Max and am very happy that I did. He was on top of things and the results were better than I expected. I would recommend him to anyone.
I had a very good experience with Max, representing me, and his assistant, Robin. They were very professional with a "I'm there for you" attitude. I appreciated their prompt response to my phone and email questions.
