On Wednesday, March 13, 2024, the State of Maine Supreme Judicial Court issued an order granting the petition for reinstatement to the Maine Bar filed by attorney Donna D. Vincenti.

The case is entitled “Donna D. Vincenti’s Petition for Reinstatement,” with case no. BAR 24-2.

According to the court order, Vincenti had originally been admitted to practice law in Maine in 1983 under her maiden name, Donna M. Dietzko. However, she was administratively suspended in November 1992 for failure to pay her annual registration fee. Despite this, Vincenti had remained actively practicing law in Connecticut, having been admitted to their bar in 1984.

In seeking reinstatement to the Maine Bar, the order stated Vincenti complied with all requirements under Maine Bar Rules 4 and 29. This included paying the reinstatement fee and completing the necessary continuing legal education. Additionally, the Board of Overseers of the Bar, which regulates attorney conduct and licensing, did not oppose Vincenti’s petition.

Considering Vincenti’s compliance with reinstatement procedures and lack of opposition from the Board of Overseers, the specially assigned single justice granted her petition. The order directed the clerk of the Supreme Judicial Court to enter the reinstatement approval on the docket record.

The court’s ruling clears the way for Vincenti, who has over 30 years of continuous legal experience in Connecticut, to once again be authorized to practice law in Maine.

According to avvo.com, Ms. Donna D. Vincenti is a tax attorney in Bantam, Connecticut. She attended the University of Maine School of Law. She acquired her law license in Maine in 1983.
