Eastern Maine Law represents people who have suffered physical, emotional, professional, or property injury as a result of a civil wrong committed by someone else. This may be from a lack of care such as in a negligence claim or it may be from something done to you intentionally. Examples of situations giving rise to personal injury claims include:

  • Auto accidents
  • Unsafe premises
  • Malpractice
  • Unsafe products
  • Defamation
  • Interference with business relationships
  • Assault
  • Trespass
  • Invasion of privacy

Cases can be resolved early by settlement or they may go to court. Sometimes cases go all the way to trial, but that is up to you. Eastern Maine Law is ready and willing to go to trial when necessary. The courtroom is not something to be feared or avoided. A trial is an opportunity for a case to be heard. A calm and tenacious advocate, John Gause embraces each opportunity to bring a client’s case to trial.

A successful outcome is one in which the client walks away feeling as though her rights were vindicated and she was fairly compensated for the wrong she suffered. John Gause’s goal is to achieve the best possible outcome for each individual client, and he does not stop until that happens.

Almost all of the cases we handle are on a contingency-fee. That means that the attorney’s fee comes out of the recovery in your case instead of charging you up front. If there is no recovery in a contingency-fee case you do not owe us anything.
