Matthew Govan | Portland Divorce & Family Law Lawyer | Maine
Attorney Govan moved to Portland Maine in 1999 to attend law school. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst and the University of Maine School of Law. He recently received a Master's Degree in Social Work at the University of Southern Maine at Portland.
Attorney Govan enrolled in every course that the University of Maine School of Law offered at the time in the areas of family law and children’s advocacy. He and a fellow student created the curriculum for and led a class titled The Child, Family and State. After becoming a member of the Maine Bar in 2005, attorney Govan took cases as a guardian ad litem in child protective matters, and as a parents’ attorney in various family matters. While still focusing mainly on family law, attorney Govan has expanded his law practice to include landlord tenant, probate and wills, and real estate matters that were first arising out of the needs of his clientele.
Govan Law Office has the strong belief that parents are best suited to determine what works best for the care of their children. In the absence of the collaboration needed to come to an agreed upon order, which meets the needs of their children, and an equitable financial arrangement to move on from divorce, zealous advocacy is of utmost importance in the family law courts. This often requires hearings. Govan Law Office is dedicated to getting the best outcomes for their clients.

Sympathy For the Client
What’s the reaction when you tell people you’re a DUI lawyer? I remember people treating you slightly worse than the gum on the bottom of your shoe. I’ve represented judges, police officers, sports figures, actors. It covers all cross-sections of society, all income levels.
