Southern Maine Workers’ Center (SMWC) Hotline
The hotline often forwards legal questions to appropriate law firms that represent employees, depending on the issues raised. Also, the SMWC is working to establish a once a week, free employment law clinic at their offices on Washington Ave. in Portland. Once it is underway, the plan is for the clinic to be staffed by 2 attorneys, rotating between a number of volunteers, including lawyers from my firm. They expect that this will start in March 2018, but the planning is ongoing and the date is not set.
