Portland Criminal Law Attorneys
Our Portland criminal defense lawyers handle all types of state and federal criminal matters. We defend clients against charges ranging from OUI to drug crimes to sex crimes to manslaughter and homicide. We work diligently to achieve dismissals whenever possible, often through early intervention into an investigation. We have considerable trial skills as well, and mount strong defenses in court whenever necessary.
Family Law Services
Our family law practice focuses on the varied needs of individuals in central and southern Maine. We take a comprehensive approach to secure long-term solutions for you and your family. Our attorneys are experienced in handling divorce, child custody, child support, property division, spousal support, domestic violence and a range of other issues.
Maine Personal Injury Lawyers
A personal injury can leave you out of work, unable to care for your children or permanently disabled. You may experience the death of a loved one. We handle car accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip-and-falls, medical malpractice and more. We fight against insurance companies to help you recover medical expenses, lost wages, long-term care needs, pain and suffering, and any other losses you have suffered.
Mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution
Our lawyers engage in mediation in nearly every family law and personal injury case. We know that taking a collaborative, non-adversarial approach allows us to negotiate the terms of your settlement without costing you in time and financial expense. Mediation also allows you and other parties to devise a solution without the court stepping in with a result no one can agree to. We work with private mediators, employed privately or through the court, to referee the dispute as a judge.
Legal Support for Members of the Military
We proudly represent Maine's soldiers and their families in family law, criminal and personal injury matters. Recently, we represented a military solider in a federal criminal drug trafficking case. We were successfully able to get a diversion for our client, which rarely happens in federal court, allowing him to return for a second tour.
