Cora K. Best, Esq.

Cora's practice focuses on Business Law and Estate Planning.

Cora's experience growing up on a family ranch in Montana shapes her approach to the law, and her relationship with clients. Cora knows firsthand the passion and determination it takes to make a successful business thrive. Before becoming a lawyer, Cora worked with small, locally-owned businesses, as well as an international non-profit organization. As a law student, Cora worked as a Student Attorney assisting small businesses and non-profits with a range of issues.

Cora also understands how family dynamics can impact everything from business decisions to estate planning. So she works with families and individuals to craft estate plans to fit their needs.

When not practicing law, Cora can be found exploring the Maine outdoors, planning home remodeling projects, and trying out new recipes on her friends.
