Prior to joining the firm, Maxx served as a law clerk to the Hon. J. Randall Corman, J.S.C., in Middlesex County Superior Court, in New Brunswick, New Jersey, where he settled many cases as a unique mediator in the Special Civil Part.  In addition to settling cases and managing the court's extensive motion calendar for both Civil and Special Civil dockets, he drafted bench memos and edited opinions on a wide variety of legal issues. Maxx also frequently helped tenants facing eviction in Middlesex County to navigate the litigation process.

Maxx earned his law degree from Seton Hall University School of Law, where he served as an Editor on the school’s Circuit Review journal. While working as an Editor, he simultaneously authored The Not-So-Settled Absolute Priority Rule: The Continued Threat of Priority Deviation Through Interim Distributions of Assets in Chapter 11 Bankruptcy, 13 Seton Hall Cir.
