Robert Maxwell

Ventura, California
Robert Maxwell II has been practicing family law in southern California courts for over 37 years. An old school attorney, Mr. Maxwell prides himself not only in his excellent and knowledgeable representation of his clients, but on his old school habits of personally communicating with his clients, and ensuring their needs are met practically as well as legally. Often a client is committed to fight for something that is not in his or her best interests; after making sure the client is aware of the pros and cons of his or her position, Mr. Maxwell will relentlessly pursue their desired aims.

Mr. Maxwell's courtroom and negotiating skills have been honed by nearly four decades of service as an officer of the Court. He is invariably quick to perceive strengths and weaknesses in an opponent's case, and he uses that knowledge to forge either a good settlement or favorable trial conditions. Above all, Mr. Maxwell values the individuality of his clients, and often works from morning until late evening in his persistent quest to ensure his clients' legal needs are met.
