Welcome to Hale & Hamlin

    Hale & Hamlin, Maine's oldest law firm, has been serving the Downeast Maine community and beyond since 1883. Our firm is located in the Peters Block building in downtown Ellsworth, alongside the Union River and probably not far from where Eugene Hale read law under Thomas Robinson around 1857. Despite the antiquity of its heritage, Hale & Hamlin is as modern as any law firm in the State of Maine.

    Hale & Hamlin attorney's practice across many areas of the law, including real estate transactions, probate and estate planning, civil litigation, family matters, municipal law, environmental law, corporations and business law, and domestic relations. While we serve clients located throughout Maine and throughout the country, our "home courts" are in Penobscot, Hancock and Washington counties.


Peters Block, the oldest building in downtown Ellsworth, sits at the corner 
of State Street and Main St., alongside the Union River. Hale & Hamlin has
been located in the Peters Block office since the 1980's.
