Max Livingston is obsessed with turning conflict into compromise. From getting a master’s degree in dispute resolution to becoming a Wisconsin Certified Mediator, Max is constantly looking for ways to bring value while creating win-win solutions.

Max’s background in business law and employment law enhances his representation of family law clients who own businesses, who have complex incomes, or who have uncommon employment benefits, making him a capable can-do attorney with a wealth of legal talents.

One of Max’s most distinctive traits is his loyalty to his clients. He invests a great deal of energy into understanding all aspects of their cases, their goals, and their motivations to never lose sight of what is important to them and to maximize their results. Unafraid to take risks or fight for the underdog, Max’s primary objective is to solve his clients’ conflicts forever, not just for now.

Despite all of Max’s impressive professional accomplishments, his humility and honesty are the things that leave the most lasting impression. His clients say that he is caring, insightful, and the perfect blend of professionalism and compassion.

Max was named a Super Lawyers Rising Star in 2022, a Martindale-Hubbell Client Gold Champion in 2021, and an AVVO Client’s Choice. He is a member of several local bar and professional associations. He teaches undergraduate legal courses at Marquette University. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and three sons—preferably at Universal Studios in Florida!

Hear from our clients

Ben – In Milwaukee

Shannon did an amazing job on my divorce case. She is very caring, hard working, timely and professional! She also is an amazing advocate! Shannon is also well respected amongst her peers and for good reason.

Amber – in Wauwatosa

“I would highly recommend Attorney White and her team for your family law issues. Very pleased I selected this firm!”

Al — in Appleton

My wife/ex wife filed for divorce (my fault). I talked to a couple firms that you hear advertise on local radio. They didn’t seem too interested in specific situation. When I spoke with Karp and Iancu it just felt different. He let me talk about my questions, concerns and then answered my questions. The team assigned to my case were thorough and always available to help walk me through this.

Cindy – In Milwaukee

Shannon is the best of the best. She worked very hard to get to know me before coming up with a strategy to best handle my case, and I could not have asked for more effort or dedication from her.

Alec – in Brookfield

“If you are looking for a family lawyer, I would highly recommend David Iancu and his team. David is a dedicated professional who listens, cares, prepares thoroughly and executes effectively on behalf of his clients. From the very first meeting, David took time to really understand my situation, answered all questions related to family law, and made me feel comfortable by not telling me what I wanted to hear but truth. David genuinely cared about helping me bring my case to the best outcome possible. I am glad I had David on my side as a true partner during a challenging time in my life!”

Angela – Appleton

“Karp & Iancu’s team of lawyers were very generous and sponsored our charity bike ride event. They’re genuine people and great attorneys. You can’t go wrong hiring them!”

Catherine – In Milwaukee

Making the decision to end any marriage, especially a long-term one, is daunting. From pre-filing consultations to a caring phone call on the morning of finalization, Shannon dedicated herself to making sure I knew what to expect every step of the way.

Alexandro – in Wauwatosa

“I’m so glad that I chose this firm for my divorce. Attorney Rinehart’s professionalism
attentiveness, and experience made me feel at ease and confident. I’m extremely satisfied with my overall experience both from a financial standpoint as well as for what they were able to accomplish for me. The reviews speak for themselves! Go with this firm because they will take care of you.”
