Kelsey C. Doane, Attorney at Law, Rudman Winchell

Kelsey C. Doane


Attorney Kelsey Doane practices with the Litigation team here at Rudman Winchell and her strength lies in her work on personal injury cases. From initial calls to settlement and the necessary trial work in- between, Kelsey’s negotiating skills, especially with opposing parties and opposing counsel as well as representing clients in contested hearings help her excel both in and out of the courtroom.

From her undergraduate days at Quinnipiac University, Kelsey established a strong foundation in law with a double major in Legal Studies and History. She even interned at the State’s Attorney’s office where she attended criminal hearings, helped draft documents, and learned different negotiation strategies in order to benefit both parties. Before attending law school, Kelsey worked for two top law firms in Boston affording her a unique perspective in all aspects of the legal field.

During Law School, Kelsey was sworn in as a student attorney here in Maine which allowed her to practice law under the supervision of a licensed attorney. In this position, she worked closely with clients on a wide range of civil legal matters. This work included preparing clients to represent themselves in court, representing them in negotiations with opposing counsel and preparing court filings. Kelsey also represented clients who wanted to obtain protection from abuse orders at Lewiston District Court. At the University of Maine School of Law, Kelsey also served as an editor of the Ocean & Coastal Law Journal and participated in the Jessup Moot Court.

Following her graduation from Law School, Kelsey worked for a boutique firm in Portland helping hundreds of people negotiate, try, and settle their personal injury cases. She actively negotiated with opposing counsel, insurance adjusters, and health insurance companies in order to get the best results for her clients. This work and her previous experience have helped guide her passion for litigation and ensuring that people are properly protected. Kelsey’s years of experience have taught her the importance of working closely with clients on every aspect of their civil legal matters. Kelsey would be honored to work with you to help solve your problem.

In her free time, Kelsey enjoys reading nonfiction history and spending time with her soon-to-be husband and playing with their dog.
