Although Abbey’s practice is diverse, her passion for the law and her in-depth understanding of the variety of technical and legal issues in her cases allows her to creatively extricate her clients from unavoidable controversies at the earliest practicable and beneficial juncture, up to and including litigation if necessary.
I believe that the best attorney-client relationships are collaborations, and the greatest partnerships are built on communication. Working together with my colleagues, I am committed to finding comprehensive and practical solutions specific to each client.
Abbey earned her B.A. from Saint Anselm College, cum laude, and her J.D., cum laude, from New England School of Law. Prior to joining the firm Abbey clerked for two years for the Maine Superior Court where she worked closely with the judiciary in a variety of matters during all stages of litigation.
Abbey grew up in central Maine and currently resides in South Portland with her husband and two children. In her spare time, she enjoys all that Maine and the greater Portland community have to offer, her never ending list of home projects, and yoga.
