Maxwell "Max" Sharkey - Associate Attorney

Max has been nicknamed the therapist friend in his friend group, because he is loyal, empathetic, and provides insightful advice. He brings this to every client relationship as he is dedicated to getting the best results the law will allow for his clients.

His passion for law began when he was on the Mock Trial team that made it to Nationals at Northern Illinois University. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Northern Illinois University with dual degrees in Philosophy and Political Science and a Certificate in Applied Ethics. He loved his time at NIU so much that he graduated Cum Laude from Northern Illinois University Law School earning his J.D. and a Certificate in Women, Gender, and the Law.

He spent two years working for the Civil Justice Clinic where he helped clients across Illinois with domestic relations issues. He also founded the Name Change Clinic to help underprivileged community members navigate the name change process. When he is not inside the office, he loves to play with his dog, Frankie, and play Beat Saber on the VR.
