Our reputation for honesty and integrity earned us an "A+" rating from the Better Business Bureau, its highest rating. "The ratings represent the Better Business Bureau's degree of confidence that a business is operating in a trustworthy manner and will make a good faith effort to resolve any customer concerns."

Our Maine Personal Injury Lawyers Represent Accident Victims Statewide.

Attorney Thompson has represented injured Mainers from almost every town and city throughout the State. Because most insurance companies and their attorneys are based in either Portland or Bangor, we maintain offices in those cities. If you don’t live near one of our offices, we’ll come to you. We routinely do home and hospital visits. If you’d prefer to meet in an office, we can arrange to meet you in conference room in or near your home town at a time that is convenient for you. We have office meeting locations in Kittery, Wells, Sanford, Kennebunk, Biddeford, Old Orchard Beach, South Portland, Portland, Westbrook, Gorham, Falmouth, Yarmouth, Freeport, Brunswick, Bath, Lewiston, Auburn, Gardiner, Augusta, Waterville, Skowhegan, Camden, Rockland, Belfast, Newport, Bangor, Ellsworth, Bar Harbor, Machias, Calais, Houlton, and Presque Isle.

We strive to make the entire process as easy as possible for you. Almost all of the information we need to put your case together can be obtained over the phone, by mail, or email. We’ll even give you self-addressed stamped envelopes to use to send us documents and a toll-free number so you won’t incur toll-charges when you contact our office.

Injured while visiting Maine but live out of State? No problem.

Attorney Thompson also represents many people who live out-of-state who were injured during a trip to Maine. In the vast majority of cases, we can successfully settle cases for our out-of-state clients without requiring them to return to Maine.

If we don’t collect money for you, you don’t have to pay for our services.

We represent accident victims on a contingent fee basis which means, unless we recover compensation for you, you don’t have to pay us for our services. Our fee is based on a percentage of what we recover for you. It’s that simple.

Our goal: Obtaining settlements for our clients that are significantly greater than if they handled their cases on their own.

If you’re concerned that paying for our services will result in you receiving less money than if you settled the case on your own, consider this: the insurance industry’s own studies have shown that people who have an attorney handle their cases receive, on average, significantly more compensation than if they handled their cases on their own. The Insurance Research Council (IRC), an organization funded by insurance companies, performed a study in 1999 that compared settlements paid to accident victims who hired lawyers with the settlements received by people who handled cases on their own. The IRC study showed that, on the average, people represented by a personal injury attorney received 3 ½ times more money than those who didn’t hire a lawyer. Bottom line: in the vast majority of cases, hiring an experienced personal injury attorney will result in more compensation for you, without the hassle and stress of having to deal with an insurance company.
