Top 6 reasons to practice in Maine

1. Quality of life - We take our quality of life pretty seriously in Maine. What's not to love? There's natural beauty just outside your door, and a sophisticated arts and food scene in downtown Portland.

 2. Premier housing that's affordable - The average cost of a house in Maine is well below that of many other areas in the country. If you want to live on the ocean, in a small town, in the woods or in downtown Portland, there are many reasonably priced options.

3. We're close to New York and Boston - Boston is just 90 minutes by car from Portland, or you can catch a train in Portland and be at North Station in a few hours. New York City is about six hours by car from Portland, and even less if you take a direct flight from the Portland Jetport.

4. Crime? Not a problem - Maine has one of the lowest levels of crime in the United States, making it a safe place for you and your family.

5. Mainers are friendly and hardworking - While we're Yankees (but not necessarily Yankees fans) Maine people are warm and hardworking. You'll be impressed by your colleagues' dedication and passion for their work.

6. Schools are the best - Maine communities offer a wide array of public, private and magnet schools.
