Compassionate and Experienced
Hunter Tzovarras was so knowledgeable and respectful in handling my OUI case. I was sincerely afraid and depressed with the prospects before me, and the entire time. Hunter was efficient with his time, clear in his approach and process, superhuman in his responsiveness, transparent in his cost, and warm in his bedside manner. I’m so thankful that I hired Hunter to represent me and you will be too.

Defending the falsely accused
I was falsely accused of several horrible crimes, arrested and charged by the state with no evidence other than conspiring testimony to support the charges. Hunter Tzovzarras was able to point out the facts to a jury and show that the testimony of the states witnesses was nothing more than a rehearsed conspiracy, orchestrated by the District Attorneys office, and the County Sheriffs lead detective.

Case dismissed.
Great experience with Hunter. As someone who doesn’t know the ropes of the court of law; I made a stupid decision and found myself between a rock and a hard place to somehow be sure that what I was accused of did not end up on my record. Hunter made sure I had his help all the way to the end- case dismissed.

"Hunter is a skilled knowledgeable attorney. His abilities are second to none."

"Hunter is a smart, hard-working, and personable attorney. He manages both a sense of humor and an astonishing work ethic, a rare and valuable combination."

"It's been no secret that Hunter Tzovarras is one of the best criminal lawyers in the State of Maine. I have worked with him side by side and literally been wowed at the issues he digs up just looking at a witness statement or police report. I still marvel over two cross-examinations I watched him do on a murder trial we had together. I had seen the witness statements and reports. I watched him tear apart a lay witness mostly by listening to responses and using his instincts. It was incredible. He is one of the first attorneys I go to with any questions I might have about appeals, criminal law, trial strategy, or sentencing issues. Not only does he do an excellent job, it is clear that he cares and takes interest in what he is doing. He is one of the few I've met in the profession that genuinely shows interest at discussing stories, trial practice books, and methods of witness examination and closing arguments. I give him the highest endorsement I can give."

"I endorse this lawyer. Hunter has a very strong work ethic and routinely handles complex and challenging cases in which he often obtains impressive results. Hunter is an ambitious criminal defense and civil rights attorney who can be trusted to oppose the State with a thorough and methodical approach. He is a confident and persuasive courtroom advocate who I would trust with any high stakes criminal defense or civil rights matter."
