Firm Overview

In Uncertain Times, You Can Be Certain of This: Briggs & Wholey will put more than 15 years of Maine personal injury litigation experience to work for you. Size can be an asset for some businesses, but it is overrated for purposes of choosing a Maine personal injury law firm. How many times have injured people like you gone to a large law firm that "specializes" in everything, and been given over to a junior associate lawyer who does not know you, does not have experience, and is not able to understand you and your problems?

Briggs & Wholey, gets to know you, your injury, your legal needs and what you need to get your life back. Our typical client is a severely injured person whose life has been disrupted through no fault of his or her own. Our clients look to us to solve problems beyond their resources or expertise. We understand the emotions involved when facing threatening health and financial issues. We attack your case with logic and confidence that only years and a wide variety of personal injury litigation experience can provide. Our office is centrally located in Rockport, and we have additional meeting locations throughout the state.
