He also often serves as local counsel for multi-state corporations and organizations in need of transaction-specific representation in Maine. The combination of his expertise on sophisticated matters and his client-focused dedication, loyalty, pragmatism, and values makes Les an especially adept and cost-effective counselor for any engagement. Les lectures at the University of Maine at Augusta and presents CLE programs on real estate brokerage for the Maine State Bar Association and the Maine Association of Realtors.

January 26, 2011 Bernstein Shur, one of northern New England's largest law firms, announced today that shareholder and attorney Lester F. (Les) Wilkinson has been appointed to the Board of Trustees at Spring Harbor Hospital in Westbrook, Maine. Spring Harbor Hospital provides Maine's most complete range of treatment programs for people of all ages who are recovering from mental illness. Spring Harbor also is Maine's only short-term inpatient treatment site for youth who experience both acute mental illness and developmental disorders, such as autism. As a nonprofit organization, Spring Harbor Hospital is community-owned and governed. "We are looking forward to working with Les," said Spring Harbor Hospital Board of Trustees President David Lakari. A resident of Augusta, Maine, Wilkinson is member of Bernstein Shur's real estate and business law practice groups. He formerly served as board chair of Maine General Health Associates and The Children's Center and is a past president of the Maine State Bar Association. Wilkinson currently serves on the Augusta Board of Trade. "At a time when the parameters of our health care system are rapidly changing, the care and welfare of patients must remain our first priority," said Wilkinson. "I care deeply about the population served by Spring Harbor Hospital and look forward to supporting the hospital's efforts as they continue to provide outstanding care and services to those in need of treatment for mental illness." Wilkinson received his J.D. from University of San Diego Law School in 1981 and his B.A. from Bates College in 1978.

Lester Wilkinson co-chaired Augusta Comprehensive Plan Committee with Lisa Dickson
(AUGUSTA, January 31, 2008) - Attorney Lester "Les" Wilkinson Jr., who manages Bernstein Shur's Augusta office, was recognized Friday, Jan. 25, by the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce for his work on the Augusta Comprehensive Plan. The Chamber presented the "Special Service Award" at its annual awards banquet to the Augusta Comprehensive Plan Committee that Wilkinson co-chaired with Lisa Dickson. "The Chamber applauds the outstanding leadership of chairs Les Wilkinson and Lisa Dickson, along with all the subcommittee chairs and the many citizens who helped create a meaningful map for Augusta, Maine's capital," said Peter Thompson, President and CEO of the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce at the awards banquet Friday. "Thanks to Les Wilkinson's hard work and leadership as Co-Chair of the Augusta Comprehensive Plan Commission, our Capital City has charted a clear course for the future," Collins said. It was my distinct pleasure to present Les with the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce's Special Service Award." Wilkinson, a former president of the Maine State Bar Association and one of the state's leading commercial attorneys, concentrates his practice in real estate law, mergers and acquisitions, and commercial finance and lending. Since joining Bernstein Shur in 1990, he has volunteered countless hours to a variety of civic activities. He is also recognized each year by Best Lawyers in America for his work in Real Estate Law. Wilkinson credited members of the comprehensive plan committee for the 18-month effort that resulted in a true strategic plan for Maine's capital and the surrounding region. The plan, which has been widely embraced by the community, extends the boundaries of traditional comprehensive planning, he said. "We tried to find consensus on what could or should happen, and it worked," said Wilkinson. "The community really came together on this project, and I commend my co-chair and everyone involved for their efforts. We need to spread the word about the benefits of living and working in Augusta and the central Maine region. Every person in the city, the region and the state of Maine wants Augusta to be an even greater place tomorrow than it is today." A 1978 graduate of Bates College, Wilkinson earned his J.D. from the University of San Diego School of Law in 1981. He has taught real estate law at the University of Maine at Augusta and been a presenter of continuing legal education programs for both the MSBA and the Maine Association of Realtors. Wilkinson has lived and worked in his adopted hometown, Augusta, for 26 years. His volunteer service outside the Maine legal profession includes continuing service as a director of the Kennebec Valley Chamber of Commerce, and prior positions as a board member and later chair of the boards of Maine General Health Associates and the Children's Center in Augusta. He continues a keen interest in public education, and is a member of the Kennebec County Bar Association. He and his wife Robin, a teacher in Augusta, have four sons.
