The Penquis Law Project

The Law Project has regular office hours in Bangor and Dover-Foxcroft. To schedule and appointment call 207-973-3671 or 1-800-215-4942. 

The Penquis Law Project is a public interest law practice which seeks to create access to civil legal services for low- and moderate-income residents of Penobscot and Piscataquis counties who would otherwise be without counsel and/or representation. Legal assistance is provided in matters of domestic relations, including divorce, protection from abuse, child support and visitation.

In addition to representation, the Law Project offers one-time consultations. At a one-time consultation, individuals may receive general legal information and help filling out court forms.

Priority is given to those individuals or families who have experienced or are experiencing domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking. Services are provided at no cost.

Please note that our attorneys are available by appointment only. If you are not yet a client of the Law Project, we ask you to call us so that we can do an intake over the telephone. If you get our voicemail please leave your name, phone number and the times you be reached. Calls are returned in the order they are received. We often experience a very high call volume. We will make every attempt to return your call within three business days.
