MAINE INJURY LAWYERS WHO GET RESULTS

If you've been seriously injured in an accident or due to medical malpractice, finding the right Maine personal injury lawyer to protect your rights and interests can seem overwhelming. With all those TV lawyers out there acting tough, it's hard to know what to believe and who you can trust.

All top-rated guidebooks on how to choose the best personal injury lawyer focus on four important factors you should consider: (1) the lawyer's experience handling personal injury cases and taking cases to trial; (2) the results that the lawyer has obtained for his clients; (3) the lawyer's reputation for trustworthiness and honesty; and (4) overall client satisfaction.

At Peter Thompson & Associates, our hard-earned reputation as Maine's premier personal injury law firm was built on two decades of obtaining excellent results for our clients and treating our clients with respect. Attorney Thompson's legal team consists of award-winning attorneys with over 60 years combined experience in personal injury law, expert case managers, paralegals, private investigators, and board-certified physician consultants. Unlike most other firms, we work as a team, bringing together our experience and expertise, and thereby achieving the best possible results for our clients.

And we've proven that this approach works. Our track record includes several nationally-reported victories and precedent-setting court decisions, as well as over 100 successful jury trials. In 2015 alone, we've obtained over $10,000,000 for our clients and were voted, for the 8th year running, “Best Personal Injury Lawyer” in both Portland and Bangor.

Individuals and families who have been seriously injured in accidents trust us to handle their cases not only because of our reputation for obtaining excellent results, but also for giving our clients the compassion, respect, and attention they deserve. Our clients have rated our firm 4.9 out of 5 stars for "Quality of Service," "Communication Ability," and "Responsiveness," with 100% stating that they “would recommend” our firm to others.
