Alison A. Denham has Midwest roots and a Mainer’s common sense. She began her practice in 1982 and is experienced in civil matters, including insurance defense, worker’s compensation, and Longshore claims. We look forward to Alison joining our team.
Deborah A. Buccina is a Maine native and started her legal career as a prosecutor with the York County District Attorney’s office in 1981. Since then, she has enjoyed a successful civil litigation practice arguing hundreds of cases before Maine juries. She has used that vast knowledge and experience to focus on ADR and we are excited that Deb will continue in that role with us.
Christine Kennedy-Jensen was raised in Auburn and began her legal career in 1999. She focuses on civil litigation, including insurance defense and family law. She is an experienced trial lawyer and will continue to provide excellent legal advice and services to all her clients. We are eager for Christine to become a member of Monaghan Leahy.
The ML Team enjoyed a wonderful evening celebrating the holiday season recently. We were joined by several of our former colleagues and a fun time was had by all!
In a recent appeal handled by John Wall and Laura Maher, the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit upheld summary judgment in favor of Monaghan Leahy’s clients: York County, the York County Sheriff, and several sheriff’s deputies. The deputies responded to a disturbance in Acton, which resulted in the plaintiff’s arrest. Arguing that the arrest was not supported by probable cause, the plaintiff claimed that the deputies violated his constitutional rights and engaged in malicious prosecution. Monaghan Leahy demonstrated that the deputies had ample probable cause to justify the arrest and the federal district court granted all defendants summary judgment. The First Circuit agreed that the deputies’ actions were lawful: “On this record, no reasonable jury could find facts that would lead to a determination that the officers lacked probable cause to arrest Charron.” The full text of the First Circuit’s decision can be found here: 21-1753P-01A.pdf (uscourts.gov).
We at Monaghan Leahy wish our partners Tom Leahy and Cornelia Fuchs, health, happiness and enjoyment in their much deserved retirements. We also send them our heartfelt thanks and deep gratitude for helping make Monaghan Leahy such a wonderful place.
Congratulations to Ken Pierce for being honored as one of National Trial Lawyers 2019 Top 100 Civil Trial Lawyers.
