Falmouth Today News reports “THE DARK SIDE OF PETER DETROY, ESQ.
June 8, 2016
(Editor’s Note: This article was started on May 17th (note the date in the upper right corner of the Google search page) prior to DeTroy’s death. We wished he was alive today to have him deny this and get the Cosby treatment where the women come pouring out of the woodwork.)
“Peter DeTroy was a wonderful leader and role model…” Chief Justice Leigh Saufley
“One of the top five lawyers in the state.” Gov. John Baldacci
“He was a great lawyer and a great person.” Jonathan Brogan, Esq.
A former sexual assault counselor reported that she and other women were propositioned while in DeTroy’s office seeking legal advice. Many of them acquiesced out of fear and the desperation of needing DeTroy’s help. These desperate women submitted to his advances in his office over and over again in direct exchange for legal services from DeTroy. None of them dared to complain to anyone who might have had the authority to stop DeTroy. Why? This gives an entirely new meaning to the term PRO BONER.
Norman, Hanson, & DeTroy, also known as the Three Thieves of Congress Street, (before their move to Canal Plaza) due to their ability to run the legal meter (billable hours) on their insurance company clients until it was time to settle the case before a trial. One former associate said they could only put up with it for a few years before they had to escape that kind of misconduct.
DeTroy was the lead lawyer for the State on the Tobacco Case, the lead lawyer for the State on the Car Test Case, and who knows how many other times DeTroy was hired by the Attorney General. Who do you report misconduct by DeTroy to when his client is the AG for the State of Maine?
