Attorney John S. Webb Defends Clients in Maine’s District, Superior, and Federal Courts

If you have been charged with a criminal offense in the state of Maine, you will face charges in one of the many District Courts, Superior Courts or Federal Courts located in Maine.

Saco and Portland Maine Attorney John S. Webb is licensed to practice law throughout Maine. He specializes in defending clients charged with criminal offenses, such as those legally classified in Maine as Operating Under the Influence (OUI), but are commonly referred to in Maine and elsewhere as drunk driving, Driving Under the Influence (DUI) or Driving While Intoxicated (DWI). All three charges involve a driver whose blood alcohol level is above the legal limit in Maine, as determined by either a breath test or a blood test. If convicted, a drunk driver faces a period of driver’s license suspension.

Criminal defense attorney Webb is equally qualified to represent you in the appropriate courts for any type of criminal offense, such as federal and state gun-related and drug-related crimes.

"Without a doubt one of the best legal teams in Maine. If you have an issue that needs legal assistance give them a call. They will listen, they will guide you and they will explain the legal aspects of your situation and if and how they can help you. You won't be disappointed." Lou C.
"I hired John twice to help with two different legal situations. He was outstanding in every regard for both cases. For one of the cases, we were led to believe it was hopeless, until we met John Webb. John much to my surprise took the case, and gave us hope. I know for a fact he worked over and beyond what he charged us for, and landed a very favorable result. You cannot get a more honest, hard working, knowledgeable, skilled lawyer than John Webb."
