Max T. Stephenson is an attorney in the family law department at Gimbel, Reilly, Guerin & Brown, LLP. Max helps clients work through the complicated and often emotional times of a divorce. His practice also includes representing clients in paternity actions, post-judgment actions, guardianships, and injunctions. A graduate of Marquette University School of Business Administration ('10) and Marquette University Law School ('13), Max joined the firm as a law clerk in 2012.

Max was a Global Village Participant for Habitat for Humanity while in college and continued his course of giving back in law school when he was inducted into the Pro Bono Society (requiring a minimum of 50 hours of pro-bono services). While a student at MULS, Max served as the Chief Justice of the Moot Court Association and competed in the Jenkins' Honors Moot Court Competition (an honor bestowed upon the top twenty percent of AWA students). His dedication to giving back remains strong as he serves as a part of the coaching staff for the National Moot Court Competition team. Max has also become well-versed in LGBTQ+ family law cases and was the driving force behind the firm being honored with the “Diversity In Business” award from the Wisconsin Law Journal due to his work in the LGBTQ+ legal community.

When Max is not serving his clients at GRGB, he enjoys spending time with his wife and two sons as well as mastering his skills on the barbecue.

Max and Megan Stephenson still have an ongoing debate regarding how they actually met as college students at Marquette but they hit it off and haven’t looked back. Now their family has grown to include Callahan (3), Ellis (2) and a little girl arriving in September.
