Stacey D. Neumann
Nobody should be marginalized in this world, which is why I became a lawyer. To give everyone a path forward.
Stacey’s litigation experience is multifaceted and extensive. With more than a decade of trial experience, she focuses on federal and state criminal law, white-collar defense, civil rights, and the collegiate disciplinary process, including Title IX investigations. Stacey also maintains a versatile and active employment law practice.
Stacey’s employment practice covers federal and state courts, as well as matters in the Maine Human Rights Commission. She passionately represents individuals who have suffered discriminatory discipline and termination measures, retaliation, harassment, medical leave violations, failures to accommodate, and other employment actions. In addition, Stacey provides counsel on human resource matters to corporations large and small, including drafting employee handbooks, hiring determinations, separation and termination, compensation and employee benefits, and wage and hour issues.
As a former federal prosecutor in the District of Maine, Stacey brings the valuable and unique perspective of understanding the legal process from the opposing side. Prior to being a federal prosecutor, Stacey was a defense attorney in Vermont. She is strongly suited to represent people faced with federal or state criminal investigations or charges – and prides herself on choosing compassion over judgment and connecting personally with clients.
Stacey also handles collegiate disciplinary matters, contract negotiations, and other civil disputes. Underscoring everything she does is a true appreciation that her clients’ whole lives are affected by the work she does. Stacey joined Murray Plumb & Murray in 2013. Her talent, willingness to tackle difficult matters, and courage to challenge conventional wisdom on behalf of clients elevated her to partner in 2017.
Stacey serves on the Board of Maine Employment Lawyers’ Association. She has also served as an adjunct professor at the University of New England. She’s a member of the Maine Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the National Employment Lawyers’ Association, the Edward Gignoux Inn of Court, and the Federal, Maine, American, and Cumberland County Bar Associations. Stacey lives in Scarborough with her husband, three small children, dog, and chickens.
