'Justice Is Only Justice if It Is Balanced With Fairness and Tempered With Mercy' - Tim Zerillo

At Hallett, Zerillo & Whipple, P.A., our Portland criminal defense attorneys recognize that people make mistakes. When you are facing criminal charges, we will stand by your side, look out for your best interests and protect your rights. We also believe that the U.S. justice system relies on incarceration far too frequently. The state or federal government must be held accountable for its actions when attempting to take away the liberties of its citizens and should only do so when it is absolutely necessary.

If you are facing criminal charges, you should speak with legal counsel before you talk with anyone else. Contact our Maine defense lawyers online or call 207-775-4255 to schedule an initial consultation to discuss your case.
