After his military service, Max worked as Director of Public Engagement and Special Assistant to the late Brooklyn District Attorney Ken Thompson. There, he helped lead in the development of several nationally recognized programs aimed at restoring trust between communities and the criminal justice system. One such program, Begin Again, has allowed thousands of New Yorkers the chance to resolve outstanding low-level offenses without fear of arrest.
