What Sets Us Apart?

Track record of results. With a combined 60 years of experience, we have won several multi-million verdicts and settlements. One of our most notable cases resulted in a $3 million settlement for a family whose 8-year-old son was killed by an elevator at a historic hotel. As part of the agreement, Otis Elevator safeguarded more than 4,000 elevators nationwide that had the same fatal design flaw.

The top 100. Terry Garmey, the firm's founding partner, has earned a national reputation in the field. He is the only attorney from Maine to be invited to join the Inner Circle of Advocates, a group of the nation's top 100 plaintiff's trial lawyers. In 2011, Terry was named Personal Injury Litigator of the Year for Portland, Maine, by Best Lawyers. He is also a member of the invitation-only American College of Trial Lawyers, a society of America's best litigators.

Down-to-earth approach. Tired of people talking at you all the time? We are too. Our lawyers are compassionate and excellent listeners. From day one, we take the time to answer every question you have about your case, and we speak in plain language. You won't need a legal dictionary for your conversations with our team.

We care about community. Whether it's volunteering at a soup kitchen, finding furniture for needy immigrant families, or volunteering at a Goodwill auction, the lawyers at Terry Garmey & Associates are engaged citizens in the communities where they live and work.

No opponent is too big. Where some other firms are hesitant to do battle with much larger firms and corporations, Terry Garmey & Associates never backs down when a client has been wronged. Not only will we fight for the financial award you deserve, we demand that individuals and companies be held accountable for their actions, preventing future tragedies. Sometimes it takes an underdog, someone who is willing to stand up to a bully, to bring about change.
