PORTLAND — Charles F. Dingman of Leeds, a partner with the law firm Preti Flaherty, has agreed to serve as the 2012 chairman of the Campaign for Justice.

The campaign brings together lawyers from around the state to raise funds on behalf of six civil legal aid providers in Maine: Cumberland Legal Aid Clinic, Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project, Legal Services for the Elderly, Maine Equal Justice Partners, Maine Volunteer Lawyers Project, and Pine Tree Legal Assistance.

 Maine continues to rank among the leaders in participation rates nationally. Last year, more than 1,500 members of the legal community gave more than $375,000 to the campaign in support of the work of the six legal aid providers. These funds helped providers assist nearly 24,000 clients last year.

Dingman’s practice focuses on addressing reimbursement, regulatory and government contracting issues, with particular concentration on the health care sector and its regulatory challenges, as well as government procurement issues across a wide array of industries. He currently serves as president of the board of directors of Maine Equal Justice Partners. He is also a member of the board of the Justice Action Group.
