Throughout her career, Attorney Maxine has been known as The Great Translator – finding ways to make parties with differing, and at times, competing interests understand the position of the other. And when that has not been successful, her talented advocacy skills make her equally effective at getting the fact finder in a dispute to see the position of her client.
Attorney Maxine's practice focuses on employment law, business dispute resolution, and workplace equity and equality. She represents employees when their rights have been violated and is also a trusted advisor and trainer for employers and their staff to help prevent the violation of those rights before it occurs. She is a compassionate yet formidable advocate in the areas of discrimination on the basis of race, sex, gender, pregnancy, religion, national origin, and age, as well as sexual or racial harassment and wrongful/retaliatory termination.
She also brings niche understanding to the distinct dynamic created when the workplace intersects with a family relationship or is a part of a faith community, and is particularly equipped to assist with legal advocacy in those areas.
Before taking the leap to law school, Attorney Maxine was a credentialed Human Resources professional, a certified mediator, and a sought-after Human Resources consultant. During law school, Attorney Maxine was an award-winning member of the Mock Trial team and gained invaluable legal experience during externships and clinic participation in the areas of Probate, Civil Rights, Immigration, and Estate Planning. Prior to joining AbsolutLAW, Attorney Maxine developed a well-rounded legal skillset in Bankruptcy, Intellectual Property (IP), and Personal Injury firms, as well as in her role as a Hearing Officer adjudicating administrative hearings for appeals cases.
