Stephen "Steve" C. Smith

Stephen "Steve" C.


Steve's non-legal background includes a military career in the U.S. Army. After beginning as an infantryman in the 3rd Ranger Battalion he served as a machine gunner in Desert Storm. After leaving active service, he joined the Maine Army National Guard where he served as a sniper team leader in the Mountain Infantry. Following his infantry service as an NCO, Steve became one of the first direct commissioned officers in the Guard, beginning his career as an officer as an engineer platoon leader.

Shortly after graduating law school, he was directly commissioned as a Judge Advocate General officer. Following the attacks of 9/11, Steve was asked to serve in Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan as a military prosecutor. Steve's deployment lasted 18 months and upon his return, he saw his 3rd child for the first time. Steve retired from the army after 21 years of service. His legal experience and long association with the military has made him an established resource for other attorneys in issues pertaining to military divorces and pensions.

Steve has played a significant role in the revitalization of downtown Bangor; he started the New Year's Ball Drop in the downtown area, rehabilitated three historical commercial buildings in a once-blighted area and developed two successful restaurants. He runs a diversified family farm with his wife, three sons, and daughter.
