Fred is resident in the Bangor office of the firm with thirty years of trial experience in both state and federal court. Fred handles a wide variety of liability defense cases and general litigation, including municipal law and workers’ compensation. Fred’s geographic practice focuses on the northern Maine counties. He has extensive experience in civil litigation with a wide range of legal issues that arise from the logging, trucking, fatal and serious accident investigation, construction, fishing and farming industries. Fred’s familiarity with local medical and liability experts, local courts and counsel, local customs and practice in northern Maine is a valuable litigation resource in an area where local knowledge can make a significant difference in quickly achieving a desired outcome. Fred’s volume of work in Bangor and points East and North also results in a substantial cost savings to clients in this large geographic but relatively unpopulated area.
