Attorney at Law

"Being a lawyer is about setting things right. It’s fundamental to an attorney’s work."

Jon’s love of practicing law is evident in the twinkle in his eyes. Jon’s the kind of guy who can put you immediately at ease with his confident sense of humor, distinct air of intelligence, and genuine concern. A former U.S. Marine (Corporal) and a Deputy Attorney General, his passion for championing right over wrong gives him a natural element of tenacity.

Having earned a reputation as one of Maine’s most effective and prolific legislative advocates, Jon’s skill and insight are in high demand among those seeking to have their voices heard in Augusta. In addition to leading the firm’s governmental relations team, Jon also maintains active practices in:

  • Administrative law
  • Health care law
  • Public interest law
  • Utilities law
  • Solid waste management law and policy
  • Coastal fisheries law, including lobstering

Since founding the firm in 1971, Jon has advised a diverse array of clients, including individuals, public interest groups, health care facilities, mental health and substance abuse organizations, major financial institutions, businesses, and utilities, on a wide range of legal and strategic issues. He has championed his clients’ interests before the Maine Legislature, the Executive Branch of State Government, the courts, and virtually every state regulatory and administrative body. His experience is unparalleled.

Jon is vigorously involved in supporting the Maine community through his work with the United Way and Jobs for Maine’s Graduates, and as the current Chair of the Maine State Museum Commission. He is also a founder of the Maine Justice Foundation’s recently created LGBT Trust Fund to ensure civil legal aid and access to justice for all of Maine’s LGBT people.

In addition, Jon has for several years provided for the wellbeing and education of seven young children in Rwanda.

Get Jon talking about classic Boston Whalers, Ireland, or his passion for restoring vintage, big-wheeled snow and ice removal equipment (someone had to do it) and just sit back.
