Welcome to Solutions Law Firm!

Solutions was built on and recognizes that it is hard on a family when it is facing legal problems. I built this firm specifically to attack the injustices that are faced by families in the legal system who often do not have the means to fight back themselves or afford an attorney to fight for them.

My name is Robert Maxwell and I am the litigator at Solutions. Give me a call or send me an email, because all of the initial consultations are free.
