, a stalwart of Modrall Sperling's litigation practice, recently retired to devote his unbounded energy to fighting liver cancer. Max joined the firm in 1993, returning to New Mexico with his masters and law degrees from the University of Texas. While at Modrall Sperling, Max set the standard for fierce advocacy for his clients while upholding a commitment to professionalism. A former State Bar Commissioner, Max's fervent work for his clients and the profession was recognized by the Lawdragon 500 Leading Litigators and Best Lawyers in America

We will miss his passion for the law while he is fighting his battle against a terrible disease but look forward to a day in which he will return to the firm and the courtroom.
