Spokane General Practice Law Firm

Our Mission: "Integrity, Equality, Justice"

Those were the three principles invoked when Carl Maxey, our founder, established Maxey Law Office PLLC in 1980.

Carl Maxey, Founder Of Maxey Law Office PLLC

Carl Maxey was not your everyday lawyer. A native of the Inland Northwest and a veteran of World War II, Carl was crowned NCAA light-heavyweight boxing national champion in 1950.

A Legal Career Distinguished By Excellence And Responsibility

Following college, Carl became the first African-American in Spokane history to be admitted to the bar. During his 40 years of practice, Carl was renowned for his skills as a trial lawyer and as a nationally recognized civil rights leader. For his energy and his steadfastness, a writer with the New York Times characterized Carl as a "Type A Gandhi."

Community-Minded Criminal Defense And Family Law Attorneys

In later years Carl achieved wealth, success and notoriety, but never lost his focus on civil rights or defense of the common man.

Our Mission Continues As Before

Today, Maxey Law continues to provide service under Carl Maxey's principles of integrity, equality and justice. It's more than a business slogan for our attorneys. Whether we are involved in criminal defense, personal injury, family law or Social Security Disability, those words are our mission. They are a call to serve the community honestly and with all our energy.
