Elizabeth F. Stout
I received my law degree from the University of Maine School of Law and passed the Maine Bar in 1990. Since then, I have worked as an Assistant District Attorney, a business litigator, an Assistant Attorney General, and since 2002, as a family law attorney, Guardian ad litem (GAL) and mediator. Over the years I have seen many families struggle with the difficulties of separation and divorce, substance abuse, mental health problems and other difficulties. My goal in representing my clients is to give them a clear analysis of the situation and options to resolve their issues, and then the guidance and advocacy to help them achieve their goals. Resolution by agreement is often the best choice, but if litigation is required, I am comfortable prosecuting or defending a case.
As a parent, as a family law attorney, and as a GAL, the safety and well being of children is always my first priority. Helping my clients achieve resolution of their disputes in an efficient, careful and cost effective way can benefit the whole family, whether they live in one house or two.
