        For the reasons mentioned above. In addition, he has no qualms about seeking out advice in areas in which he may have doubts and listens to the advice he is given. HE is truly one of the unsung heroes in Connecticut in the practice of law.

        After a hummer sped through a stop sign hitting me in August 2019, my husband insisted that we go to an attorney, along with getting medical treatment. I was unaware of how much medical treatment I was to need, with a car totaled, a concussion and neck injury. Max and his firm, helped direct me to the appropriate doctors for evaluation, along with handling the legal issues. They are always curious and give updates as things have progressed, knowing that it is a frustrating process sometimes for those of us going through the system. They have explained every step and what to expect along the way, for which I am grateful. We have not finished but I am so glad that we engaged Max and his team. I could not recommend anyone more.
