Enforcing an award/judgment
Mr. Maxwell provided advice on how to enter an arbitration award as a court judgment. He is a good communicator and helped me understand the process, the costs, and the tradeoffs. I was especially impressed with Mr. Maxwell's interest in getting the best result for *me*. When he perceived an opportunity for me to save time and money, he recommended it--even though it meant me working with a different attorney. Mr. Maxwell could have elected to not mention the alternative and done the work--and earned the fees--himself, but he was looking out for my best interest, which speaks highly of his character. If you have a problem with resolving contract and lease disputes, enforcement of judgments, or collections, Mr. Maxwell can help.

Great Litigator
Mr. Maxwell got my money and interest back after a contract was breached. He made sure I was made whole and did so in very little time and with a minimal of fuss, pomp and circumstances. Being involved in litigation is gut wrenching enough, having an attorney who guides you through the maze quickly, efficently and successfully is the way to go. Maxwell is such an attorney - I highly recommend him.

Solid, aggressive, good listener
Addressed a contract dispute with a former client. Was able to secure a detailed payment settlement quickly and with no messing around. Stood his ground against a much larger firm and got me every penny I was owed.
