Steve and Renee were great to work with! Very professional and realistic. Gave no false expectations or predictions. They communicated everything to us in a timely manner. We will definitely use them again if ever needed! Thank you, Steve and your team!


For my family law case, Steve Smith had a very strong presence and was dominant in the courtroom. The manner in which he carries out cases is something you see in the movies. He was really animated and passionate about my case. His military background is a big asset, and he really helped me out. I would highly recommend him.


We hired Leah M. Baldacci for a family law case and she was so extremely helpful and got me through my case. She’s very professional and takes the time to listen to her clients. She’s a wonderful advocate and a fantastic attorney. If you’re looking for a great attorney, I recommend Leah. Thank you so much for your legal help.

Anonymous Client

I’ve hired Steve for two cases, and I am very pleased with my decision. He fights for his clients and strives for the best outcome. His entire staff is pleasant and wonderful to work with.


I hired Steve for a parental rights case involving my 2 children. He was aggressive but supportive and did not file unnecessary motions that wasted my retainer. I was terrified of court, but with his experience, I felt at ease. The process was explained, and his staff was great as well. I would hire him again if needed and received a great outcome with an order that works for me and my children.

Military Pensions and The Former Spouses Protection Act

Military Pensions and The Former Spouses Protection Act

Steve recently won an interesting “omitted property” case involving a divorce from 1984.  The parties divorced while the husband was in the military just after Congress passed The Former Spouses Protection Act (FSPA) (10 U.S.C. § 1408).  The FSPA provided for the division of military pensions in divorce, it took a few years for the full impact to get out to the wider legal community.   As the client’s divorce was just after the passage of the FSPA, the military pension was not included in the divorce.  Decades passed and the client approached us about obtaining her share of her former spouse’s military pension.  We filed under Maine’s omitted property statute (19-A M.R.S.A. § 953) which states that:

  1. “if a final divorce decree fails to set apart or divide marital property over which the courts had jurisdiction the immediate property is deemed held by both parties as tenants-in-common on the notion of either party, the court may set aside or divide the omitted property between the parties as justice may require.”

After a fight, the other side conceded, and our client is now receiving her just share of the pension.
