    Shek Law knows the process, what factors the court will look for, and how to present your argument. Let’s get your record cleaned.

  8. Juvenile law
    5%
    When your child is charged with a crime, it can be an emotionally difficult time. My advice is to continue to parent and discipline how you see fit; don’t let the court tell you what’s appropriate for your child.

As a passionate professional, nothing makes me happier than delivering advanced DWI legal representation that inspires others to fight for their rights while raising the standards bar along the way. Furthermore, I am devoted to not only being a lawyer but also a mentor, consultant, and friend along the way. My goal is to empower my clients to utilize their rights, enrich them with transparent case/legal knowledge, and unearth gap-proof details, so they are fully prepared to proceed through each step. In the end, regardless of what you may be facing, you can have solidifying confidence that together we will cover your case thoroughly, all of your questions will be answered, and you will be optimally positioned through the plea-bargaining process and if you happen to go to trial.

I highly recommend Max as your attorney!
Max was amazing from start to finish and I highly recommend his services. He accepted my case after countless attorneys acknowledged defeat without even attempting to help. Many attorneys made me feel hopeless. I was close to giving up until I had a conversation with Max. He set proper expectations right from the start and proceeded to assist me in an uphill battle. I’m extremely thankful to have called Max as without him, I would not have my rights restored. Thank you once again Max. I am forever grateful for your services and expertise.

I had a million questions. He answered them all
I found myself on the wrong end of a domestic assault charge. Having never been in trouble before, I was nervous and afraid of the potential consequences I was facing. I contacted Max and he immediately went to work on my case without prejudice or bias. We got the BEST possible outcome given the circumstances. His rates were more than fair for the amount of service he provided. Give him a call, you won't regret it. Max knows his stuff.

A great attorney!
If you want a lawyer who will put as much effort into building a strong defense as he will into representing you, go no further. After being detained for a DWI, I called Max, and I couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. The fact that he visited me in jail made me feel more at ease, and also helped make my time there more comfortable. He helped me relax because he was fully aware of what would transpire from beginning to end. He also responded almost immediately when I texted or called him. The outcome of my case was beyond my expectations! If you are in trouble and need an attorney you can trust, Stop and give him a call. You won't regret doing it!!

Excellent consultation and hire
Mr. Shek shows his worth right from the consultation. I called Max for a DWI charge and it didn’t take long to hire him. He was very informative during consultation and helped me understand the charges as well as how things work. Not to mention his price is very fair. Upon hire, Max got straight to work on my case, always working towards the best results as possible. Throughout the process Mr. Shek was easy to contact/get a hold of and was always willing to provide extra explanations as needed. The legal advice he has provided has been extremely helpful, providing multiple options to move forward on the matters at hand with my best interests at the center. In my case there was success! Had there been little success, I still would have considered Maxwell Shek a great hire as he did put so much effort into my case and offered great support. Max is your man.

BWI
I reached out to Max after an alcohol related incident dealing with a boat. Max was great in helping me to understand the process as well as all of the steps I needed to take, being that it was my first time dealing with anything like this. He is very knowledgable about all of the laws and statutes that come into effect especially pertaining to the state of MN. He kept me up to date on the process, where I was standing and what we were looking at in terms of next steps until the dispute was over.
