Know Your Court
It is important to have local counsel in any dispute. As the saying goes, it is often not what you know, but who you know that really counts. We are not suggesting that we are able to pull strings that others cannot, but we do support the proposition that it is important to be known to court personnel, including the clerks and the bailiffs, as well as to the judges. If you are known as an attorney whose word is good, and who doesn’t bring frivolous cases, you will be able to get better results for your clients.
In Maine, all new family law matters must either be brought in the district court or in the probate court. We are centrally located in the Augusta and frequent the district courts located in Augusta, Waterville, Farmington, Belfast, Rockland, West Bath and Wiscasset. These courts correspond to Kennebec, Franklin, Waldo, Knox, Sagadahoc and Lincoln counties, respectively.
The probate court handles guardianships, conservatorships and adoptions. We handle these cases in the probate courts of all six counties mentioned above.
If your divorce or family matter case will be heard in one of these courts, please feel free to give us a call at 207-622-6900 or email us.
