Serving as a Judge and prior to that as a defense attorney, Max Lando was also one of the first female Pds to work in the office for Phil Hubbart. Judge Lando was a bright and shinning light of common sense, uncommon wisdom and you could always count on a warm smile when entering her courtroom. Her position can be filled, but she never will be replaced.

From time to time we will post some of the comments on the front page:
Judge Lando helped me get my first "lawyer" job at the juvenile division of the Office of the Public Defender and mentored me as a young lawyer and then later as a judge. Her advice and guidance were invaluable. Throughout her diagnosis and treatment she exhibited both grace and courage. My sadness at her death is tempered by knowing that she hss been released from the fight. Her daughters can be proud of the many accomplishments of this remarkable woman. Gone but never forgotten.

One of the most caring, passionate women i ever knew, with the guts to do what she thought was right, no matter what public opinion may have been. May she rest peacefully now in the arms o Michael Gill. Godspeed, Maxine.
On many occasions, when some of us had questions about legal procedures or words in order to be able to interpret them to Spanish speaking defendants, Judge Cohen welcomed our inquiries and took the time to explain so that we could understand that which we had to translate. She was a "grande dame" who could tell a mean joke. May she rest in peace and my condolences to her daughters and family.
