Paul Maxon is one of the most intelligent and committed lawyers I have worked with. His team dedicated themselves to helping me defend against a frivolous lawsuit filed by my former employer, and they spent countless hours dedicated to doing the right thing. They are focused on detail, and have a deep understanding of the law. I am impressed at the depth of knowledge Paul has exhibited. Paul and his team partnered with me on successfully defeating the lawsuit against me at trial, and also win my counterclaim (which awarded me damages). His team is definitely one to contact to help with employment issues. I cannot speak more highly of Paul Maxon - he really demonstrates that some lawyers are actually honest, smart professionals that can support the common man against the corporation.
