“ 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. “

A group of Maine businesses has joined together to sue Governor Mills saying that the shut down of the economy is unconstitutional.
The suit was filed in federal court Friday.
The group is challenging Mill’s executive orders that have taken jobs and businesses away from thousands of people.
We talked to Attorney Steve Smith on Friday. Smith says his clients want to be able to open in a safe way and make a living again.
Attorney, Steve Smith, said, “The idea that the Governor as she put it or one of her people put it is going to know how to manage and mitigate risk around business processes is ludicrous. The government should stick to what it knows best and let my clients with their businesses run their businesses. They do not need the governor’s help.”
The legal team representing the group released a statement saying that this type of emergency injunction is not only unprecedented but “ill-conceived, and inconsistent.”
Steve Smith added, “They don’t need the government micromanaging every little aspect of their lives. These people, my clients, absolutely care for the people around them no matter who they are they will not take unnecessary risks, but they don’t need the governor telling them what those risks are they are fully aware.”
Those individuals named in court documents as plaintiffs are:
Lee Ann DelCourt, Spillover Motel in Stratton
Raymond & Jo Boshold, Maine Woolens LLC in Portland
Lindsey Crosby, Harper Method Hair LLC in South Portland
David Jones, Ducktrap Lodge and Retreat in Lincolnville and FO Bailey Antiquarians
Arthur Langley, the owner of a Heritage tourism business that conducts history tours throughout the state. Langley is from Harrington.
James Fahey, a wedding disc jockey in Westbrook
Mike Mercer, a security consultant in Windham
Karl Ward, Nickerson and O’Day, Inc. Construction in Brewer
Dr. John Herzog, an orthopedic surgeon in Falmouth
Attorney Stephen C. Smith, stated, “The Governor’s regulations are arbitrary and capricious, and they favor big businesses over Maine’s lifeblood: its small businesses. We have filed in U.S. District Court Friday afternoon, challenging Gov. Mill’s excessive response to the virus.”
