The Maine we live in today is a lot different from what it was when we started this firm. Back then too many people-honest, hard-working people-found themselves battling a system for their survival, because there weren't many people out there who would fight for them. I am proud of McTeague Higbee and the work the firm continues to do because, while the firm has progressed since we opened our doors, we still have a long way to go when it comes to fair treatment and justice for all.
