PORTLAND - Three Camden women have earned the right to practice law in the state of Maine after passing the legal bar examination in October.

Katherine Dickey, Marina Sideris and Karinna Russo successfully passed the examination at the end of July and were sworn in by Maine Supreme Court Justice Joseph Jabar at the end of October.

"We were surprised to see these three local girls admitted to the bar on the same day," said David Dickey, father of Katherine Dickey.  "The best part of the story is that they are all going to stay and work in the area."

Each applicant for the examination was sponsored by an active member of the Maine bar.

Dickey was sponsored by Waldo County District Attorney Eric Walker, Sideris was sponsored by Joseph Steinberger, Esq. of Rockland and Russo was sponsored by her mother, Carolyn Russo, Esq.
