Thomas R. Doyle, At Large
Retired Partner, Pierce Atwood LLP
Experience: Over the course of my life, I have been blessed with incredibly supportive parents and mentors, and have had the good fortune to be able to associate with inspiring and talented colleagues and friends. I’ve also had access to the highest quality educational opportunities. I realize that many in our community, unfortunately, do not experience the level of support, inspiration, and academic opportunity I have had. It is important for me to give back to others, especially those who have not experienced the blessings and opportunities I have enjoyed.
