About me

Adrienne is an experienced employment and labor lawyer who now dedicates her law practice entirely to helping Maine's injured workers win their workers' compensation cases and regain their financial security. A native of Massachusetts, Adrienne completed her undergraduate degree at Duke University and her law degree at the University of Colorado Boulder. Prior to joining Maine Employee Rights Group in 2011, Adrienne practiced employment and labor law for nine years, representing employees and unions in federal and state court, before the labor board, and in arbitration.  

When Adrienne is not practicing law, she enjoys exploring the coast and the mountains of Maine with her family, and life’s simple pleasures like reading a good book and walking the dog.
