Personal Note

Max, a native of Missouri, moved to Colorado during the summer of 2013 to attend Denver University, Sturm College of Law. During law school and since his admission to the Colorado Bar in October of 2016, Max has practiced almost exclusively in the family law field. Max has extensive experience handling a wide range of domestic relations matters in the Colorado Court of Appeals and District Courts throughout the state. During law school, Max clerked at a respected family law firm with offices throughout the Front Range and he worked as an associate attorney at that firm upon his admission to the Bar. In March 2019, Max joined Heckenbach Malara PC, where he continues to practice almost exclusively in family law.

Max knows the law, he is extremely well-prepared and he employs a strategic approach when representing each and every one of his clients. Max possesses the skills to obtain the best possible result for his clients and he’s not afraid to litigate a case if settlement is not a viable option.

During his free time, Max loves spending time with his family and friends. Max enjoys living in Denver with his wife, Mackenzie, and their cat, Asher. Max is an avid skier and he likes other outdoor activities including hiking and camping. Max also has a passion for music and he enjoys attending live performances.
