Real Estate - Estate Planning and Administration - Tax Planning and Return Preparation

I was admitted to practice in Maine in 1990, and ran a solo practice in Brunswick for 10 years doing street level
litigation in criminal, child protective and domestic cases. Then it was on to the Maine Departments of
Corrections and Human Services where I worked in human resources dealing with employment civil rights issues
under the Maine Human Rights Act, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Upon moving to Matinicus, I was inspired to return to the law, possibly because of the break of several years, as
well as the immediacy and relevance of the law to life and work in a fishing community.
My practice now entails
marine resources and fisheries issues, and land use matters of concern to working waterfronts and our small
island community. Recent cases included multi-party litigation in federal court over fishing rights,
fighting the
shutdown of Matinicus lobstering grounds in 2009 and permitting issues in Matinicus Harbor.


Since 2012, I've had a shop in downtown Damariscotta and maintain a full service practice at that location. Next
up? Polluting, expensive and ineffective whale regs.
