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.


Maine Real Estate Lawyers

Maine Real Estate Lawyers

Are you buying or selling property in Maine? It is time to consult with an experienced Maine real estate attorney. Buying a home is a huge investment. In fact, for many people, their home may be the largest purchase that they ever make. For this reason, it is essential to make sure that your investment is sound. This involves hiring a lawyer to draft and review all purchase and sale agreements, as well as to conduct a thorough title search. Without the help of a lawyer to draft and review your purchase and sale agreements, you will just be signing the dotted line on a generic agreement. In doing so, you may be missing out on countless opportunities to strengthen your rights, personalize and benefit from the agreement, and create beneficial opportunities for both parties. 

Do I Need a Lawyer for Real Estate Transactions?

In most states, hiring legal representation for a real estate transaction is optional, giving parties who choose to do so an advantage in negotiations and closing. However, Maine is one of the few states that actually requires people to have an attorney for closing. For this reason, you do need to hire an attorney for the final stage of your real estate transaction. You might as well consult with one at the beginning of the transaction to ensure that your interests are represented throughout the entire real estate process. Without a lawyer to represent you, you may even end up spending your life savings on a piece of property to which the seller had no rights. There is no end to the nightmare scenarios that can occur when it comes to purchasing property. Having the added layer of protection against fraud and protecting your rights can make a world of difference when it comes to making an investment. 

What if I Have Already Purchased a Home?

If you have already purchased a home, you may still have a need for a real estate or property attorney. For instance, if a dispute comes up with regard to the property or the property line, you may need an attorney to handle and even litigate the matter. Additionally, you may go to move into your home only to learn that it is full of holdover tenants or squatters. Easements can also require the assistance of an attorney. Just because the purchase has been finalized does not mean all possible legal issues will disappear. Rather, legal matters often become another facet of home ownership. No matter what your real estate issue is, our experienced Maine real estate attorneys are ready to help. It is important to have a dedicated legal advocate on your side when it comes to making your dreams a reality.
