"As Chairman of the Maine Association of Substance Abuse Programs' Legislative Committee, I want to convey our deep appreciation for all the excellent work that Doyle & Nelson has us provided us over the years.
MASAP has been remarkably successful in its legislative and governmental affairs efforts in large measure as a result of Doyle & Nelson's assistance. The firm has the experience, strategic thinking and relationships that few possess to such a degree. Their ability to interact with "both sides of the aisle" is truly phenomenal.
When we were assessing legislative consultants a number of years ago, your personal references from both the Governor(R) and Speaker of the House (D) were accurate perspectives on your continuing ability to achieve objectives.
In addition, it has been a pleasure working with you. I have complete confidence in your ability to assess a situation and then tactfully (or as called for) suggest that I rethink my position. I thank you for always doing your best to help the people of Maine."

Doyle and Nelson
Maine's Premier Small Law Firm

Based in Maine's capital city, Doyle & Nelson has been providing top-level legal and lobbying services for thirty-five 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.  Associate Dennis Carrillo engages in a wide range of civil litigation and administrative law.

At Doyle and 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 and 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.

We specialize in the areas of administrative and regulatory law; lobbying and governmental affairs services; business, non-profit, and corporate planning and taxation; healthcare, long-term care and assisted living; estate planning and probate; civil litigation; commercial and residential real estate transactions and their financing; real estate development; and a full range of business, strategic planning and legislative consulting services.
