What Clients are Saying…

Max Neuhaus is such a pleasure to work with. He is able to look at the big picture of what you are trying to accomplish, then break things down into simple logical steps that no longer seem overwhelming. After our first meeting, I knew I was in good hands and that everything would be taken care of. -Jane

In my experience, Max understands real estate law like the back of his hand. I have appreciated how he is able to interpret the law in a practical, ‘real-world’ manner and explain to me what is important, while not wasting my time (and my money) with what is not important. He is extremely fair with his charges and efficient with his time. -Matt

I have worked with Max Neuhaus for many items related to my business (contracts, etc.) and also for estate planning for my family. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional in everything he does. He responds to communication quickly and I can trust the information he gives me. Max also has shared other great resources for other needed services in the area. I will continue to work with Max in the years to come and I recommend him to anyone in need of assistance with business or estate planning. – Jenni

Max was great to work with. I purchased a business and he handled the transaction. He is a great person, friend, and I completely trust Max and recommend him to anyone. – Jeff
