NORTH CONWAY — Cooper Cargill Chant has announced the one-year anniversary of Theresa "Tracy" Grisez joining the firm.
Grisez practices primarily in the areas of probate administration, estate planning and family law. She joined Cooper Cargill Chant mid-career, having had a successful prior career in human resources and executive management with a large (300 employee) orthopaedic practice in Annapolis, Md.
Grisez has been a welcome addition at Cooper Cargill Chant.
Partner Ken Cargill said: “Tracy’s broad experience in human resources and business law, and in just dealing with people, will be so helpful in her legal career. She is used to reviewing situations and laws, advising people on their options and choices and following up on them. This practical experience helps her and clients so much.”
Grisez graduated with high honors from the University of Baltimore Law School in 2018, and has since been admitted to the Bar in both Maine and New Hampshire.
She received the top score on the essay portion of the Maine Bar exam, making her the 2018 recipient of the prestigious Laurie A. Gibson award.
Prior to law school, she obtained a master’s degree in legal and ethical studies and a bachelor’s degree in jurisprudence from the University of Baltimore, graduating summa cum laude from both programs.
She received the E. Halcott Turner award, having been selected by her professors as the Most Distinguished Graduate of her jurisprudence program.
Bar has very much enjoyed her first year in the Mount Washington Valley. She is a graduate of the Mount Washington Valley Leadership Program, and is currently serving on the board of directors for Visiting Nurses Home Care and Hospice of Carroll County.
Bar is married to Mark Chaput, who grew up in Scarborough, Maine. She and Chaput relocated from Maryland to West Baldwin, Maine, in late 2017 to be closer to his family. In their free time, the couple enjoys hiking, snow shoeing and playing with their five dogs — two yellow labs, two rescue terriers and their new addition, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.
With offices in North Conway and Berlin, Cooper Cargill Chant is counsel to hundreds of small businesses and associations, and thousands of individual clients in a wide variety of legal matters throughout northern New Hampshire and western Maine. The firm’s lawyers have been recognized for excellence in their practice areas, pro bono work, and service on civic and non-profit boards.
