Claimed Lawyer Profile

Walter McKee formed McKee Law in 2012. Mr. McKee’s work focuses on litigation. Mr. McKee's criminal defense practice ranges from traffic offenses to murder. He has been involved in countless high-profile criminal cases in Maine over the past 25 years and is a veteran of over 200 fully contested civil and criminal jury trials. Mr. McKee's practice is statewide and also includes representation of criminal defendants in federal criminal matters in Maine's federal district courts as well as the First Circuit Court of Appeals in Boston. As one Federal judge put it, Mr. McKee's defense of the accused is nothing less than "outstanding" and rises "above and beyond the call of duty."

He has handled numerous, significant automobile collision cases and has obtained substantial settlements and verdicts in a variety of negligence cases. In his first ten years of practice alone he successfully settled or received trial verdicts in excess of $10,000,000. He served for six years on the Board of Governors of the Maine Trial Lawyers Association and is a strong advocate for corporate responsibility in Maine. But that's not all he does. Mr. McKee also maintains an active general litigation practice that runs the gamut from litigation of real estate cases and business matters to probate and construction to name but a few. There's virtually no matter that he has not fought and litigated over. He also represents professionals before dozens of State of Maine licensing boards. Mr. McKee is recognized around the state as one of Maine’s premier attorneys. He is a "New England Super Lawyer," is listed in Best Lawyers in America and is AV rated in Martindale-Hubbell.
