We are pleased to announce that Elizabeth Brogan has rejoined the firm, “of counsel,” and will be working with the Governmental Relations and Workers’ Compensation practice groups, representing the interests of the employer and self-insured employer community before the Maine Legislature. Elizabeth initially joined the firm in 1987, fresh from a year as a visiting student at the University of Maine Law School and from Boston College Law School, where she graduated cum laude. She also graduated from McGill University, in Montreal, with honors. Elizabeth primarily worked in the Workers’ Compensation group, becoming one of our first female partners in 1995.
Since leaving the firm in 1997, Ms. Brogan served as longtime editor of her town’s community newspaper, as a literacy volunteer at Portland Adult Education, and as a claims consultant to the Workers’ Compensation Supplemental Benefit Fund, while raising two children with her husband, and fellow Norman, Hanson & DeTroy attorney, Jonathan Brogan. Most recently, in June, 2016, Ms. Brogan became Executive Director of both the Workers’ Compensation Coordinating Council and Maine Council of Self-Insurers, as well as Administrator of the Maine Self-Insurance Guarantee Association. She is currently serving as a member of the Maine Workers’ Compensation Board Rules Taskforce.
Elizabeth resides in Cape Elizabeth with her husband, two miniature poodles and the occasionally visiting son or daughter.
