I am an Attorney practicing in southern Maine. I have a wide practice area but focus on criminal defense, civil disputes, and family law. I work for a law firm with 8 other attorneys called Fairfield & Associates. We have offices in York and Cumberland counties. I tried my first case while still in law school as a student attorney and now have tried over 100 criminal and civil cases to judges and juries. This blog covers legal topics and the occasional random subject that gets my attention. This blog is not intended to give legal advice to any particular person, but I will be frequently posting information that some may find useful. If anything written here is of particular interest, please feel free to contact me at my office via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 207-985-9465. When I’m not doing legal stuff, I am probably thinking about one of my cases, lifting weights or doing something outside.
