William T Bly

William T Bly has been practicing law for over 10 years with a special focus on DUI defense.  I am passionate about the law and I strive to provide my clients with a vigorous and effective defense.  I understand that any criminal charge is a life altering event and as such, it’s important to be a good listener as well as a communicator.  I work hard to communicate effectively with my clients, the DA and the judge in order to obtain the best possible results.  I’m a results oriented attorney, which is ultimately what my client’s care most about.

On a personal note, I moved to Maine from NJ in 2001.  Since I’ve been here such a short period of time, people tell me that I still have a bit of that “Jersey accent”.

I’m an avid skier and fly fisherman.  I actually look forward to the winter and lament the coming of summer as I’d prefer to be mashing moguls to sitting on the beach.  However, the winter doesn’t last forever, which is why you can find me on a remote stream or river chasing big trout and salmon throughout the summer and fall.

Payment types: Cash, Check, Credit card
