5.0 out of 5.0
My wife and I have consulted Mr. Maxwell on a variety of legal matters over the past 25 years or so. Our concerns have ranged from simple traffic tickets, to probating my wife's father's estate, to administration of our own trust, and estate planning, gift and estate taxation. Mr. Maxwell's advice and service to us have always been on point, professionally and timely delivered, and reasonably priced. The fact that we continue to seek his counsel over such a long period speaks for itself.
