Mr. Maimon devotion to his clients is second to none. In one highly-publicized case, Mr. Maimon fought the attempts of a major corporation to force the family of a mesothelioma victim to have an autopsy performed against the family’s wishes. The Court found in favor of Mr. Maimon’s client, respecting the privacy and religious beliefs of the family.
Mr. Maimon is often recommended to clients by other lawyers who are aware of Mr. Maimon’s success in the courtroom.
