Michael H. Brisson, Esq. • Dedicated & Hard-Working • Seeking Employment Opportunities • Accepting Only Pro Bono Referrals
Thank you for visiting. As you might have guessed, I’m an attorney living in New Durham. I am seeking new employment opportunities and continuing to learn by accepting referrals from the NH Bar Association’s Pro Bono Project, but more particularly from the Domestic Violence Emergency (“DOVE”) Project. Please re-visit soon, because I may expand the website in the future.
Because I am seeking new employment opportunities, please understand that at this time I am not really “set up” or in a position to take on clients for private matters. I am only taking pro bono referrals that have been processed through the NH Bar Association, primarily the DOVE Project. With that said, please feel free to contact me if I can be of service to you in some way, or if you’re facing a legal issue I might happen to know somebody I can refer you to. Please be aware that no attorney-client relationship is formed by simply making contact, because we would need to expressly discuss the terms of an attorney-client relationship before one is formed, typically in writing.
If you are looking for legal services, please visit the link below for helpful resources that have been put together by the New Hampshire Bar Association. You’ll see information about the Lawyer Referral Service, and also information about reduced-fee and pro bono services available to those who qualify financially. The page below also includes a wealth of general legal information that might help to get you pointed in the right direction.
