Profiles of Agnes and Jim Bushell of Portland. Agnes Bushell, 46, is an accomplished novelist who earlier this year co-founded The Dissident, a monthly that fills the vacuum left by the demise of The Maine Progressive. Jim Bushell, 53, is an attorney whose private practice is devoted primarily to criminal defense work, helping clients secure Social Security disability benefits and representing parents in custody battles with the Maine Department of Human Services. He is a four-time winner of the Maine Bar Foundation's Pro Bono Publico Award for accepting more referrals from the Volunteer Lawyers Project than any other solo practitioner in Cumberland County.
