His sea tour came to an end with his selection as the squadron and wing "Pilot of the Year" and culminated in selection as the 1999 Naval Helicopter Association “Pilot of the Year.” For his shore tour Max returned to the Naval Academy where he taught Naval Warfare Strategy and Tactics and was the Course Coordinator/Lead Instructor of the Aviation Capstone Course. While teaching at the academy, Max attended the University of Maryland, Francis King Carey School of Law where he obtained his Juris Doctor degree.

Max also serves as the Special Magistrate for the Towns of Glen Ridge and Cloud Lake.
In 2014, Max founded Lohman Law Group, P.A. to meet the ever growing need for expansive, comprehensive legal representation from a single law firm that represents the interests of local governments, while providing the legal experience and resources of much larger firms. Max strives to provide an “in-house” legal department experience at a cost that makes economic sense and represents a real value to the firm’s clients.
