    Every legal problem requires a unique approach. When you face criminal prosecution in Maine, the court can also have a unique approach to how it handles your type of case.

    I have extensive experience in local District Courts and Superior Courts throughout the state, which often benefits my clients.

    For example, if I find that a policy in a certain district provides an advantage for one client, I will then work to gain that same advantage for a client being prosecuted in another district.

    Courts I frequent are located in Bangor, Ellsworth, Belfast, Skowhegan, Dover-Foxcroft, Millinocket, Machias, and throughout Central, Eastern and Northern Maine. I also regularly handle cases from towns including Orono and Bar Harbor.
