March 12, 2013
PORTLAND, Maine – Diane Dusini, a highly respected divorce lawyer and president elect of the Maine State Bar Association, will be honored April 11 at the annual dinner of the Maine Law Alumni Association. The event begins with a cocktail hour at 6 p.m. at the Harraseeket Inn in Freeport.
Dusini, class of 1987, will receive the association’s Distinguished Service Award in recognition of her significant contributions to the legal profession and her longstanding support of the University of Maine School of Law.
Over the years, Dusini has taken time away from her busy practice and home life to serve as President of the Maine Law Alumni Association, as a Class Agent, and as a reliable participant in the Law School’s Mentor-Mentee Program. Dusini also has served as an adjunct professor at Maine Law, teaching family law to the next generation of lawyers. Dusini and her family have graciously established the Philip M. Dusini Scholarship Fund, to provide help to Maine Law students with demonstrated financial need.
Maine Law is fortunate that Dusini, a native of Keene, N.H., decided to stay in Portland to practice law after she graduated. Dusini began her career as a tax lawyer, and later focused on family law, specifically the tax and business implications of divorce. She is a partner at the firm of MittelAsen LLC. Dusini is certified by the Institute for Divorce Financial Analysts as a Certified Divorce Planner and is listed in “Best Lawyers in America.”
Dusini has served on various committees related to Maine’s court system, and she is a frequent speaker on topics in family law. As a volunteer in her community, Dusini has worked with incarcerated teens at the Long Creek Youth Development Center. She has also served as president of the Board of Directors of the Kennebec Girl Scout Council. Dusini maintains an active lifestyle through running, surfing and triathlons. She lives in Scarborough with her husband, Andy.
The Maine Law Alumni Association supports scholarships, public interest fellowships and other fellowships that enrich the Law School. The association also sponsors a mentor program that matches students with graduates.
Graduates stay connected to the Maine Law community through the Maine Law Magazine, the Alumni Association Annual Dinner, and annual events across Maine and in such places as Washington D.C., California, Boston, Atlanta, Connecticut, New York City, New Hampshire and Vermont. Many graduates also volunteer for activities at Maine Law, such as judging Moot Court presentations, serving on various panels and advising student organizations. Membership in the Association is open to all persons who have attended the University of Maine School of Law for at least one year as a full-time student.
