The Maine Supreme Judicial Court has recognized Murray Plumb & Murray attorney Stacey Neumann with Katahdin Counsel status for her pro bono civil representation to those in need. The Katahdin Counsel Recognition Program was developed as a way to focus public attention on the critical role that pro bono representation plays in Maine’s civil justice system. This is the second year that Stacey has received Katahdin Counsel status.
A Scarborough resident, Stacey joined Murray Plumb & Murray in 2013 and has over 10 years of trial experience with a focus on state and federal criminal law, immigration law and employment law. Stacey’s pro bono cases have included assisting individuals seeking asylum in the United States, and assisting individuals who have suffered job discrimination before the Maine Human Rights Committee. For Stacey, there is a professional and moral imperative to help individuals without means gain access to justice in every form.
In a letter announcing her recognition, the Hon. Andrew M. Mead, Associate Justice of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court and Chair of the Justice Action Group, wrote “In a time when funding for civil legal services is dwindling and the need for representation is growing, the value of your contribution of time, energy, and talent are invaluable.”
