About Peter

Learn Peter’s areas of practice.

My brother Jim and I are pleased to announce the formation of Clifford & Clifford LLC with offices in Kennebunk and Portland. A predecessor firm, also known as Clifford and Clifford, was founded in 1915 in Lewiston by our grandfather and his brother. It existed for nearly a century, until 2000, and included a number of judges and public service oriented attorneys. We hope to continue this tradition going forward and look forward to working with many of you!

Peter negotiated a very reasonable settlement in a Personal Injury case for me. Peter was very communicative with me and always was very prompt to respond to my questions and concerns. I am pleased with the service and the results.

Real Estate Mortgage Foreclosure case
Outstanding representation for our case. RE cases in Maine go through many phases to finally get to trial. Peter had some new theories to learn early on and invested the time to consult with an expert so he had the very best defenses available for our representation. The Mediation phase has gone well. The negotiation with the lender before a trial has been fruitful all because Peter has been prepared for trial at any point in the process. Excellent representation at a very fair price from a very knowledgeable and skilled lawyer.
