Christopher McGhee

Chris McGhee retired as a Master Sergeant after twenty years of active duty service in the United States Air Force. His career began as an F-16 Crew Chief culminating as a Lead Production Superintendent for an Aircraft Maintenance Unit. Throughout his military career, Chris was recognized for his leadership, problem-solving abilities, and integrity.

After his service, Chris moved to Maine and worked for the Veterans Upward Bound program at the University of Southern Maine. In his role as an Academic Advisor, Chris directly supported first-generation college veterans as they pursued post-secondary education across the state.

In 2019, Chris began his first year at the University of Maine School of Law. In addition to his rigorous studies, he took on the role of Student Veteran Liaison, helping to introduce potential students to Maine Law and assisting incoming veteran students with their transition.

During his time in law school, Chris’s commitment to service members was evident. Through research and Freedom of Information Act requests, he found possible links between specific military roles and an increased risk of suicide. Recognizing the importance of his findings, he collaborated with Senator Angus King’s office. Their collective efforts contributed to a section of the 2022 National Defense Authorization Act, which calls for an in-depth study of military suicides by job category. The results of this study are expected by the end of 2023.

Chris is now finalizing his Master of Laws (L.L.M) degree, an advanced legal degree, for a Fall 2023 graduation. His focus during this advanced study is on information privacy and employee benefits law. Currently, as an attorney at Jackson & MacNichol, Chris specializes in Veterans Disability law.

His military experience and dedication to veterans’ rights make him a committed advocate for those he serves.
