We are highly-skilled, creative, approachable, and aggressive when we need to be. Most importantly, we are successful.
The Lipman & Katz motto is “service.” In order to meet the goals and objectives of our clients, we need to have highly trained, extremely competent counsel who are prepared to work long hours. It is a policy and practice at Lipman & Katz that phone calls from clients are returned on a daily basis. It is not unusual for someone who is a client to receive a phone call on Sunday morning from the attorney who has been out of town.
If you do not communicate with your client, you cannot work as a team. Lipman & Katz works as a team with our clients so that we can achieve the best result. It is always an objective of our attorneys to look at the big picture, find out what the client really wants, and then work together with the client to meet that objective.
Every initial meeting discusses the client’s objectives, whether those objectives are realistic, and the likelihood of success. At the first meeting, the client is also entitled to and can discuss fees and time commitment. Clients of Lipman & Katz receive a copy of everything the attorney does in the case unless the client has requested otherwise.
Our representation is done with a team approach with many cases having more than one attorney—many times there will be a lead attorney and a paralegal working together with the client to bring the case to a successful conclusion.
Lipman & Katz has eight attorneys and a large staff to provide the expertise and strength that a client needs in a complicated or complex endeavor. We don’t let other firms “paper us to death.”
Connected to the community
Our attorneys and staff are proud to be from Augusta and the surrounding towns. We value the relationships we have built with local nonprofits and organizations across the central Maine community.
Whether it is serving on the board of the Discovery Children's Museum, participating in a 5K fundraiser or supporting the local softball and Little League programs, we love helping our clients and our community.
About Our Clients
Our Clients Come First.
The firm’s attorneys and superior team of legal assistants are dedicated to achieving the best possible result for each client. We understand that the legal process can be complex, so our attorneys are readily available to answer your questions. They'll empower you to confidently face your legal challenges by providing a clear explanation of your legal situation as it progresses, and pledge to passionately protect your interests.
Because every case is different, we take a practical problem-solving approach, developing resourceful and effective strategies in answer to each individual’s unique legal needs. While we will aggressively pursue your interests at trial when a firm stance is needed, resolving a case outside of the courtroom is sometimes the best course of action, both financially and emotionally.
We are Your Neighbors.
We believe in making this community stronger. After all, our roots here run very deep. Many of us were born and raised in Maine, and all of us live in Augusta or communities nearby. Over the past five years, our firm has donated more than $45,000 to the community and its local charities. We invest in a variety of nonprofit organizations but focus primarily on those that support the success of this region’s greatest resource — its people. As individuals, we are very involved in community support and youth programs throughout central Maine. Many of us maintain or have maintained leadership positions in organizations that contribute to the vitality of our local area and the well-being of our fellow residents.
The lawyers at Lipman & Katz are also committed to serving society and we well respect and understand the need for public service. Currently, Roger Katz is a state senator and has been for two terms. Sumner Lipman served two terms in the State Legislature and then ran as a candidate for the Republican nomination for governor.
