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.

I had a DUII for marijuana that was wrongfully given to me. There was some gray areas in the trial but Max nailed it and won. Straight forward and professional. He knew what we needed in the courtroom and was on point with the states prosecutors every move. His assistant Robin was also very nice and helpful when I had questions or needed to contact max.

I am so thankful Max was involved in my case. Several months ago, I was charged with a DUI when I wasn't even the person driving.
I was forced to find a paid lawyer since I wouldn't be eligible for diversion because I was being charged with my second DUI. I work in a bar and was facing losing my liquor license, among hefty fines and jail time.
I began researching and calling defense attorneys in Eugene, and found Max.
He was so understanding and helpful. I wasn't just a way to make money to him. My finances are tight and we came up with a reasonable fee and plan that was more than fair.
It took about 8 weeks, but he was able to get my DUI charge totally DISMISSED, without going to trial. The police had minimal evidence against me, but clearly were set on nailing me with this charge.
I can't thank Max enough. I learned not to drive drunk after the first time, but every penny spent this time was well worth it to work with such a great and honest attorney.

I highly recommend Max to handle any criminal or DUI case. I was hit with 5 charges and he was able to greatly reduce them all. When it is all said and done, (as long as I do my part) all charges will be off my record. Without Max, I could have been facing jail time. He made sure to work with the appropriate people to ensure I had the most fair treatment possible.
If you need a smart, sharp-witted, and compassionate attorney to represent you, Max is the man.
