Atty. Maier is a 1967 graduate of Bucknell University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering. He graduated from Duquesne Law School with a jurus doctor in 1970 and immediately went to work as a patent attorney for Alcoa, where he was employed for two years.
He opened his own practice in Freeland in 1972. His pro bono service to MMI has saved the school from great legal expenses numerous times over the past 43 years.

His legal service also included negotiating and accepting land from the Freeland Industrial Development Corporation and helping to secure the closure of Wyoming Street, which led to the construction of the Athletic Field Complex and The Joseph A. Turri ’45 Library and Learning Center.
