Known as a People's Advocate

Throughout his legal career, Jim Dunleavy has practiced law to help other people. It started in 1968, when he served as the sole attorney in Presque Isle for Pine Tree Legal Assistance, primarily focusing on legal aid to the poor. When he went into private practice in 1970, he worked on many cases obtaining workers' compensation for employees injured on the job. In addition, he has handled civil rights cases in Federal Court.

After his election as Judge of Probate in 1976, he reduced his personal caseload, and focused on cases that did not conflict with his Probate duties. It is now his priority to see that injured people receive fair compensation for their injuries and obtain the justice they deserve.

"Jim Dunleavy still has an active case-load of clients whose cases he personally handles, but if Jim refers a case to an associate attorney of his to serve a client or another lawyer colleague in whom he has confidence, Jim will often continue to assist that lawyer at no additional cost to a client."
