As good as it gets
Maggi was representing me in small divorce case. Although it was a small case she helped me so,sooo much and took the case as serious as it was 1M divorce case. She was amazing!!! On top of everything she also provided me with amazing personal understanding and helped me cope during these difficult times. She was a true partner in all aspects and I couldn't be more happy with the result! I strongly recommend!

Passionate smart ethical attorney
I hired Maggi on a very difficult child custody case of mine after 2 other attorneys had failed me. I was pleasantly surprised to find in her an attorney that is smart, ethical, truly cared about my case, and did not tell inaccuracies. Everything she told me was true, even when I did not like the answers. She was so ethical that she offered to give to my ex wife her lawyer fees in return for a settlement. Amazing lawyer. I felt that Maggi fought passionately on my behalf and stood against, to the best of her ability, a corrupt family court system that promotes parental alienation. JC

Excellent attorney who WILL FIGHT for your rights
I hired another attorney prior to Maggi to handle my case; however, after deciding that I needed someone who can actually fight for me in court, Maggi was recommended to me by a friend who had a very positive experience. Maggi exceeded my expectations! I am so grateful I hired her to handle my case. As a single mom, I needed someone who is understanding, caring about their client, and who would fight for me in court and get me what I deserve. I highly recommend Maggi. Her level of professionalism and expertise exceeded my expectations. If you want a fighter, Maggi is the right person.

Divorce Case: Young Couple
I met with 3 other lawyers before meeting Maggi. All of them told me similar things about my case including Maggi, however Maggi was very straight forward and aggressive.Talking to Maggi is like talking to your best friend as if you can share everything. I believe my case is in very safe hands. Also, the speed of replying back to me as a client is efficient, I highly recommend Maggi.

Warrior in the court room! Must have if you are facing off with a sociopath or borderline personality disorder opponent
I called because I was in dire need of help. Her ex employee "Sonia" told me that Maggi was a "fighter". I felt confident in hiring Maggi because Sonia spoke so highly of her and is bilingual. My case was very complicated and multi layered. The NCP abandoned our child and resurfaced after 15 years later asking for visitation and a host of other things. I am an important healthcare provider in the community where I live and am very discreet and conservative. Going to court was mortifying for me and the NCP knew it and used it to his full advantage. I failed miserably the first time at court as I was pro-se. I stupidly believed that if I simply "went with the truth" I'd win hands down as I am a published, FBI awarded, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, and Licensed Clinical Drug and Alcohol Counselor. Well NCP lied through his teeth and we were the last case and the judge was just too tired to listen to reason. Thank God for Maggi. We won every on every single count. I saved thousands of dollars! Literally she got me $4000 arrears reinstated (had been vacated) and a ton more child support. Also I was able to structure visitation (which NCP declined. He'd rather have nothing to do with our child now that he has to pay child support). I am so lucky to find Maggi. I almost gave up due to so much trauma stemming from that relationship (domestic violence in all forms). I was so scared and Maggi helped me get closure.

I hired Maggi to handle my very complex family law case
I am partner in a big NJ law firm. As a lawyer with nearly 30 years experience, I know a lot of lawyers, and believe me, I had my choice of divorce attorneys to hire. My litigation was protracted and vigorously prosecuted and defended. My spouse also hired a top gun attorney (who, by the way, charged three times as much!) My case is history now but let me tell you that I am confident that Maggi's expertise, coupled with her experience and superb knowledge resulted in my children receiving far more than they would have under any other circumstances. Maggi is a relentless litigator and her years as a chief prosecutor gave her pit-bull like qualities that you will need when engaging in the messy court process. Maggi also handled the multiple real estate transfers that were required, and will definitely be preparing my prenuptial agreement when the time comes. Don't let your next mistake be hiring the wrong attorney. Just call her.

Persistent, thorough and professional
I hired Maggi to help me with a difficult real estate transaction where I was at risk to lose a good amount of money. She proved to be very capable and tenacious and was able to resolve the matter in a timely manner and to my complete satisfaction. I wholeheartedly recommend her services and will be sure to use her again in the future if the need arises. Thanks Maggi!

Straight shooter, honest, clear talker!
I met a number of lawyers before deciding to go with MKM. What stood out most for her was that she didn't necessarily just say things that I wanted to hear like most other lawyers I met before I hired her. She said what made sense and what was a feasible solution to my case. My case was visibly simple but took some difficult turns that Maggi handled with precision and good know how. She was on top of things through the whole process. She listened to my concerns and was always willing to explain the legal solution. Above all Maggi is excellent natured and makes you feel very comfortable when you are talking to her. I'd highly recommend Maggi for any Divorce / Annulment cases.

honest and truthful lawyer
Maggie is a great lawyer; she helped me in my case which was toughest time of my life. On the professional side she is a good listener, she tries hard to understand the problem and tries her best to help find lawful solutions, she cares about her clients and keeps her appointments. On the personal side she is an honest person. I felt safe and in good hands which is exactly what I needed in this tough time ; I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs an honest and truthful lawyer.

Continued superb representation!
Maggi originally helped me with my custody dispute and not only resolved it favorably but went above and beyond in my custody arrangement and child support. She leaves no stone unturned and is very attentive and thorough. To have her on your side means sleeping better at night. Since then she has been an ongoing adviser for any issues that have popped up, including one just recently - making sure those custody lines are adhered to. As always, she was very attentive and resolved it quickly. I highly recommend Maggi as she is very direct, kind-hearted, extremely knowledgeable and detail oriented. An A++ lawyer!

Excellent Lawyer
I previously had a divorce attorney who I wasn't happy with. I hired Maggi because she right away looked at my papers and even though my previous attorney screw up my case, Maggi took everything in her hands and was able to fix it. Maggi is an excellent, knowledgable and very skilled lawyer. She is also carrying and always available to answer your questions. I was never afraid to call her office. She was up front with me and charged me a flat fee. She was going above and beyond to fight for my rights. With Maggi it is never about the money, she lives to help people and it shows through her work!!!!! I can go on and on how appreciative I am of Maggi' services. I will defenetely recommend her to anyone who is going to need a divorce lawyer!!!! She makes this difficult process less stressful. She always takes time to make sure all of the questions are answered!!!!! Always available throug e-mail. I would email her with questions and she would never tell me that it goes on her retainer!!!! Always answered them on the same day!!!!There was never a moment where I doubted Maggi' work. Very very grateful for all she has done for me. Thank you so much Maggi!!! You are the best!!!! Very happy client :)

Maggi is another Lawyer's favorite Lawyer
When it comes to representation for your matter, Maggi is your first and only choice. When at look at the word "LAWYER" in Maggi, this is how I define her: L - Loyal to her clients with giving 100% commitment to your matter. A - Assertive and Aggressive professionally when representing your case W - Winning is what she sets out to do and largely succeeds. Losing is not part of her vocabulary Y - Yearn for the victory of your case E - Excellent and exceptional at her work. R - Relentless into the wee hours of the night combing through information to ensure she leaves nothing unturned. Maggi has represented me and others I have referred. She came very highly recommended by another Attorney. I am happy to say she is my legal counsel if I ever in need in the future.

My experience with Maggi
My experience with Maggi began in 2009. I needed to see a divorce lawyer, and I searched the internet to Find one who practiced in Bayonne NJ where I used to live. I was skeptical about choosing a lawyer from the internet but after meeting her, I knew I made the correct decision. She was able to make the Divorce process any easy one, and to save my pension from my ex. She fought for all my rights. Then in 2015, I returned to Maggi so she could help me emancipate my daughter. Again, I was not disappointed. In a matter of a few weeks, Maggi was able to emancipate my daughter. If you have a problem, Maggi is the person you need to see. There is no doubt that she will find a solution to solve your problem. Thank you Maggi and God bless you.

I retained attorney Maggi Khalil Maksoud for my divorce.She fought diligently to assure I received maximum results.There wasn't any issue she didn't give her complete attention to.It was a great comfort to me to know she was always accessible even on weekends.Ms.Maksoud ,while feverishly fighting for my best interests also showed that she was a person that also cared.She was concerned about the relationship i was having with my children.She knows the process can be hard on them. I was very happy with the outcome of my case.Maggi Khalil Maksoud worked very hard for me while being professional and ethical.I have decided that Ms.Maksoud will now be my attorney of choice in the future for all of my legal needs.

EXCELLENT
Maggi Khalil Maksoud is a very professional lawyer. Her due diligence in representing her clients is most outstanding. She fights very hard for her clients, explains every step of the legal process. Maggi represented me in two different matters, and both were successful for me!! I would and have recommended Maggi to a few friends for legal matters. Maggi is a very professional and has an excellent rapport with her clients, as she did with myself .All in all, I recommend Maggi to anyone seeking legal help. I count Maggi as a personal friend, as well as an attorney!!

Highly recommended if you need hard negotiations
I hired Maggi for my divorce case which required some hefty negotiations with the other party. Her negotiation skills were very impressive and I would highly recommend her if you need good representation in negotiation in court or otherwise. Her office was also helpful especially her secretary.

Top notch
I came to Maggi from another law firm after they’ve dragged my case forever, drained my bank account and maxed out my credit cards. Maggi took over the case, which was screwed up by the other lawyer, fixed everything and resolved a matter extremely fast to my satisfaction. She was also very kind to offer a non-standard, flexible payment plan just for me so I could afford the payments and get back on my feet. Extremely nice personality, honest, represents you personally, available 24/7 by phone & email, works in your best interest, great negotiation skills. Highly recommended!

I highly recommend maggi Khalil maksoud
Honestly I hired three lawyers in the past and said to say I went through hell and back with all three of them prior to hiring maggi .. Maggi was the best decision I ever made in such a long time..my only biggest regret is why I didn't hear of maggi before and hiring her from the beginning! When I say precise, Exceptional,phenomenal,Excellency, superior work..these words aren't good enough and don't justify maggi for her loyalty and hard work that she showed me in action inside that court room, the only thing that was going in my head in that court was that i'm glad she's on my side ! And I'll explain why My attorney fought hard for me and we won! The restraining order against me was dismissed even though my wife had 2 lawyers. Maggi was able to show that my wife was lying on cross exam. Maggi was better than the 2 lawyers that my wife hired which helped me in my divorce case! Maggi helped serve justice and taught my wife that she can't lie and get away with it. This case was very important for me because I would have lost my job if there was a final restraining order. I'm glad I chose the right lawyer. Thanks again Maggi!

Ethical, Trustworthy, Readily Available
I can't say enough good words about Maggi Khalil. After going through 2 other lawyers in Hudson County I was really feeling like Hudson County had a corrupt set of practitioners. And then I hired Maggi and she is just amazing. She is proactive, aggressive, she reaches out to me first timely instead of my having to run after her. Clever, ethical, compassionate. I just cannot say enough good things about her. I have been a client of hers for a few months now and I wish I had started my divorce with her. Love you Maggi!!!

Runaway
My ex-girlfriend ran away to another state with our 2 month old baby girl. Maggi's aggressive representation forced her return within two days. I'm extremely happy to be reunited with my daughter. I thought as a man I could never win custody, however we won a 50/50 parenting schedule, with me being designated as the parent of primary residence! I know that representing women must be very easy, but Maggi gave me an honest assessment of my case, and said that she could help...she did! Maggi is very prompt with her responses and available by email almost 24/7...which was very helpful to me. Any question or concern that arose I was able to get resolution on immediately. She charges a flat fee, and even though I emailed her quite a bit, she didn't charge me extra because of the flat fee. I highly recommend Maggi!
