Caitlin is an associate attorney with a focus on civil litigation. Caitlin brings energy and sound judgment to serving clients at all stages of a matter from pre-suit through dispute resolution, hearings, and trial. In particular, she has honed effective skills in appellate litigation. She also has considerable experience handling juvenile defense matters and court-appointed appellate matters. Prior to joining Lambert Coffin, Caitlin worked at a small firm in Portland where she had a busy practice split between trial work and appellate advocacy.

I come from a background of highly client-centered law. Always at the forefront of my mind is what my client wants to achieve. I enjoy exploring pathways to their goals as we move forward together in the legal process. Lambert Coffin is a firm filled with intelligent, hardworking, creative people who encourage and reinforce these motivations.

After law school, Caitlin clerked for the Honorable Donald G. Alexander of the Maine Supreme Judicial Court for two years. In 2014, Caitlin graduated magna cum laude from the University of Maine School of Law. There, she practiced as a student attorney at the Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic in a wide variety of matters, and served as a teaching assistant for the legal writing, civil procedure, and criminal law classes. She also served as a Comment Editor on the Ocean and Coastal Law Journal and won the Honorable Daniel E. Wathen First-Year Legal Writing Prize. Before attending law school, Caitlin earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Mercyhurst College, now Mercyhurst University, in Erie, Pennsylvania.

Caitlin grew up in Canaan, Maine, and has settled in South Portland with her husband, Ben. In her free time, Caitlin enjoys yoga, gardening, and creative writing.
