Why Bangor? Why Maine?

By Rudman Winchell Attorney

It is well known that Boston lawyers charge more than lawyers in Maine, and that Portland lawyers charge more than lawyers in Bangor. So why would attorneys who could practice elsewhere choose to remain or settle in the greater Bangor area?

Rudman Winchell attorney Erik Stumpfel, a 25 year resident of Sangerville, located in rural Piscataquis County Maine, provides some of the answer in the linked Powerpoint photo essay. All photos are from hiking trips and excursions in southern Piscataquis County – Erik’s backyard.

Rudman Winchell’s attorneys each have their own reasons for choosing to live and practice here. But a common thread among all of our attorneys is a deep appreciation for the people, lifestyle and natural setting of Maine and the greater Bangor region.
