Donald F. Fontaine : Attorney at Law

97 India Street 
Portland, ME 04101 

“We Enforce the Wage Laws.”

Since 1975 Donald Fontaine has represented clients in cases involving wage and hour violations, unfair labor practices, discrimination, unemployment compensation, and retirement disputes. His strength lies in understanding and applying the complex law in these areas.

Class Actions
The firm is highly experienced in class actions. It has filed many aggressive and innovative class actions in both state and federal court, securing many huge financial recoveries. The office has handled most of the wage class actions that have occurred in the State of Maine.

Broad and Deep Experience
Donald Fontaine has represented dozens of local education associations on behalf of teachers, bus drivers, educational technicians, janitors, and school secretaries. He has also represented the United Paperworkers International Union, the Amalgamated Transit Union, U.N.I.T.E., the AFL-CIO, and the employees of the DeCoster Egg Farm.

The Lawyer for Lawyers
Many of our cases are sent to us from other lawyers. That is because we are recognized by the bar as the employment law firm with unique knowledge and experience in handling wage disputes.

  • The truth is that in his 31 years of practicing law, Fontaine has devoted himself to the rights of the poor, of women, of the disabled, of labor unions… Thanks to his lawsuits, Maine abolished its laws that allowed people to be thrown in jail – or “debtors prison” – for not paying their debts. It was his lawsuit that gave teachers the right to use sick days so that they could be paid for a certain amount of time during pregnancy and after they gave birth.
