This month, Governor LePage announced that he was nominating Attorney Michael Duddy of Kelly, Remmel & Zimmerman to serve as a judge on the Maine District Court. Michael has practiced law at Kelly Remmel & Zimmerman since 1999, distinguishing himself as an impressive litigator and legal advisor inside and outside of the courtroom. While at Kelly, Remmel & Zimmerman, Michael has primarily focused on health care, employment, immigration and professional liability law.
Michael’s experiences as a trial attorney, an appellate advocate and a former law clerk make him well-suited for the position. Michael is also a graduate of the Health Leadership Development (HLD II) program of the Daniel Hanley Center for Health Leadership and the Institute for Civic Leadership, as well as a former officer in the United States Navy and a Licensed Professional Forester.
This judicial appointment is a tremendous honor for Michael and Kelly, Remmel & Zimmerman, and the firm is excited about Michael’s opportunity to serve the public in this new capacity. If confirmed, Michael will likely join the bench this spring.
