About this firm

Based in Maine's capital city, Doyle & Nelson has been providing top-level legal and lobbying services for over 45 years. Senior partners Jon Doyle and Craig Nelson are former members of the Maine Attorney General's office and have served as legal counsel for the Maine State Legislature and its committees. Their colleagues Dennis Carrillo and Teresa Cloutier have added a new generation of proven legal and public policy expertise to the firm, which advises and advocates for clients in a wide range of areas.

The firm specializes in the areas of administrative and regulatory law; lobbying and governmental affairs services; election and campaign finance law; solid waste management law and policy; coastal fisheries law; commercial and other complex litigation; business, non-profit, and corporate planning and taxation; healthcare, long-term care and assisted living; estate planning and probate; commercial and residential real estate transactions and their financing; real estate development; and a full range of business, strategic planning and legislative consulting services.

At Doyle & Nelson, we believe that open communication between attorney and client ensures the best representation. We have intentionally remained a small firm so that clients have direct access to our expertise. Clients have a right to expect solid, well grounded advice; Doyle & Nelson consistently delivers a level of service that is superior to larger firms, because we provide a more responsive and personal level of access and attention.

    Attorney Carrillo was professional, courteous, straightforward and honest to deal with. While representing his client's best interests, he also was a problem-solver, and creative in arriving at possible solutions to the legal dispute. I have the highest regard for his legal practice, and look forward to working with him again.
