“ Like many people in Maine, we were unaccustomed to defending ourselves from allegations of wrongdoing by others. Faced with the threat of civil action, we relied on Mr. Smith for advice. Our meeting with him provided comfort and direction. Whenever we had questions, he was rapidly responsive. Most importantly, his guidance led to an acceptable conclusion that avoided court or overly extended uncertainty. We highly recommend him for his assistance in civil disputes. “
Client of Steve Smith
“ I am incredibly pleased I hired Steve Smith and Jack Baldacci to help with an unscrupulous builder. They went above and beyond to make sure A) the contractor finished the job they were paid to do and B) to prevent them from doing the same thing to anyone in the future. I highly recommend them. “
“ I’ve hired Steve for two cases and I am very pleased with my decision. He fights for his clients and strives for the best outcome. His entire staff is pleasant and wonderful to work with. “
“ I hired Steve for a parental rights case involving my 2 children. He was aggressive but supportive and did not file unnecessary motions that wasted my retainer. I was terrified of court but with his experience, I felt at ease. The process was explained and his staff was great as well. I would hire him again if needed and received a great outcome with an order that works for me and my children. “
Handled my Parental Rights Case with Ease
“ I wish I had retained him sooner, his help has been immeasurable. “

There are many reasons why a lawyer’s guidance is critical when buying a home or property in Maine. A lawyer can help with everything from vetting a buyer to creating and drafting purchase agreements, running title checks, assisting in negotiations, helping to obtain the mortgage, being present at the closing, and ensuring that the deed is transferred effectively.
While a lawyer is not strictly required by law for property closings in Maine, it is necessary if you want to be well-represented in the deal. The state acknowledged this by creating a law ensuring that buyers can select their own attorney for closing. Your attorney will advise and guide you in ways that no bank or title company ever could and will provide an honest assessment of risks.
Without a lawyer, bottlenecks can occur at any step throughout the purchase process. Having a lawyer ensures that the purchase or sale will move along efficiently. Costly errors will be avoided by an experienced real estate attorney, saving you time and money. Individuals from out-of-state will benefit even more by having knowledgeable local counsel, and in fact, it may be the only way to complete such a deal. This added layer of protection can make all the difference when it comes to ensuring a sound, long-term investment.
For most people, their home is the largest investment they will ever make. Even experienced developers and commercial property owners can lose millions in a bad real estate transaction.
