The foundation of Doyon & White Law Group began more than a decade ago when Trevor Doyon and Patrick White were introduced to each other and the court room as jury clerks for the Superior Court of New Haven. This position offered Trevor and Pat the opportunity to witness countless trials firsthand. This immersive exposure quickly turned Trevor and Pat’s attention to the reality that cases can be won and lost simply by how they are presented under the limited lens of the courtroom. Too often they would see attorneys with factually strong cases lose to parties who exhibited superior courtroom knowledge and presence. Consequently, Trevor and Pat vowed to hone their trial skills so their clients and their claims would be prepared from day one to be presented in court in the best possible way.
Through years of working with this trial first mentality, Trevor and Pat built a strong reputation with their clients and the courts of Connecticut through consistently providing highly focused, case specific trial strategies. Doyon & White Law Group’s intensive case review starts by working with the client to develop potential closing statements and working backwards to ensure that their collective approach is sound and aligned with these end goals. By focusing on the desired result through the above practices on day one, the attorneys at Doyon & White Law Group are prepared to present your case in its strongest light forcing opposing counsel and their clients to recognize our preparedness and willingness to proceed with trial, which often increases their desire to resolve the matter quickly through pre-trial negotiations.
