Who Are We?

In her more than three decades of practice, Margaret C. Lavoie has distinguished herself as one of a very small handful of preeminent matrimonial lawyers in Maine. As an advocate for her clients, she is respected as much for her formidable trial skills and tenacious advocacy as for her deft ability to negotiate favorable outcomes in even the most complex and contentious disputes. As a mediator and arbitrator, Margaret is highly sought after to apply her unique combination of analytical ability, deep legal knowledge and keen interpersonal skills to resolve the most complicated, challenging and high-stakes matters.

Margaret’s many awards and achievements testify to her peers’ and clients’ high regard for her abilities. Twice she has been named by Best Lawyers in America as Lawyer of the Year for family law in the Portland region. In 2015, the Maine State Bar Association conferred the Family Law Achievement award on her for her service to Maine’s families. And she has been active in bar associations, before the Legislature, and as a teacher and lecturer, to improve the law and increase lawyer’s understanding of the law affecting family matters before the courts.
