Our Story

At Curtis Thaxter, we believe that the practice of law is more than a profession–it is a calling. Our office was created with the vision of providing high-quality legal services to our clients and community, and we’re very proud to say that we have remained true to that vision for over four decades. Our office was created in 1975 by a group of attorneys led by former Maine Governor and U.S. Ambassador to Canada, Kenneth M. Curtis. Governor Curtis is a man of great integrity and determination, and those same values drive our firm today. We’re committed to excellence in all we do and take pride in our reputation for distinction and civic responsibility. Our team is ready to put our experience and passion into working for you. Call us today to learn more about what we can do for you.

A Personalized Service

When it comes to legal services, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Every client has unique needs that require looking at things from all angles. At Curtis Thaxter, we provide personalized, high-quality legal services that are based on the very different challenges faced by each of our clients. We take the time to get to know our clients and their businesses to provide the best possible representation.

How We Give Back

Many members of our firm serve on community non-profit boards and volunteer their time on behalf of a variety of charitable organizations in Maine. We are closely involved with the Susan Curtis Foundation and volunteer with the Maine Homeless Legal Project and the Maine Volunteer Lawyers Project.

SCG Legal
