Fulton County Gwinnett County Georgia Cobb County DeKalb County Legal Attorney - Divorce and Family Law Certified Amicable Divorce Professional


Max has a strong background in divorce and family law. Before she started her own firm, she worked for a well-known family law firm in Atlanta. She has handled a wide variety of complex and unique divorce and family law issues. She has significant experience settling cases both through negotiations and mediation.

Max believes an attorney-client relationship begins with compassion. She seeks to understand first and then plan legal strategies. Meeting clients’ needs–both practical and emotional–is one of Max’s top priorities.

Max has diverse legal experience supporting her approach to family law. During law school, she volunteered with a legal helpline for victims of domestic violence. Currently, Max serves as a court-appointed Guardian Ad Litem (GAL). In that role, she protects children in contested custody cases. Max is also a registered domestic mediator. Her mediation training helps her analyze cases from all sides and craft solutions. Max’s variety of experience is invaluable in giving her a unique perspective on how to best help her clients.

Max has seen that the best way to help clients through divorce is to keep their cases out of court. As an uncontested divorce attorney, Max focuses on helping clients reach an agreement with their spouse. Some clients think you need to already agree with your spouse to have an uncontested divorce—this isn’t true. For an uncontested divorce in Georgia, you just need to reach an agreement with your spouse before filing the case in court. Max guides clients through the negotiation process to help them reach this agreement. Once an agreement is reached—and the documents are signed, the court process to finalize an uncontested divorce is simple.
