Lawyers' Fund for Client Protection

The Maine Lawyers' Fund Client Protection operates within the Maine Board of Overseers of the Bar to promote public confidence in the administration of justice and the integrity of the legal profession by pursuing reimbursement, in whole or in part, of losses caused by the dishonest conduct of lawyers admitted and licensed to practice law in the state of Maine. Every lawyer has an obligation to the public to participate in the collective effort of the Maine Bar to reimburse those who have lost money or property as a result of the dishonest conduct of another lawyer; contribution to the Fund is an acceptable method of meeting this obligation.
