The Law Office of Larry Doyle offers a unique range of services stemming from Larry’s long and distinguished career shaping California law as lawyer, lobbyist, and legal ethicist.
As a lawyer, Larry provides freelance research and writing assistance to other lawyers, including pleadings, legal memoranda, articles and blog posts. Larry’s extensive background in statutory development and legislative intent places him at the top of his field whenever statutes and their application are involved.
Larry also provides guidance to attorneys on legal ethics, including advertising and technology compliance with the Rules of Professional Conduct and statutes. He also represents attorneys in State Bar disciplinary matters and hope-to-be attorneys in matters of Admission. Larry has written and lectured extensively on a variety of topics relating to lawyer ethics.
As a lobbyist, Larry has a nearly-unparalleled knowledge of legislative process and procedure gleaned from decades as legislative staff, Chief Legislative Counsel for the State Bar of California, and contract lobbyist. In the latter capacity, Larry guided well over 150 legislative proposals into law over the past 10 years on behalf of the nonprofit Conference of California Bar Associations (CCBA), a historied and truly diverse statewide organization of attorneys. Before that, he spent nearly two decades as the Chief Legislative Counsel and principal lobbyist for the State Bar of California, guiding into enactment (or, where necessary, helping prevent or modify) hundreds of legislative proposals relating to attorney conduct, lawyer ethics, and the practice of law.
While with the State Bar, Larry was the guiding force behind the rise of the Bar’s practice sections (now the sections of the California Lawyers Association) to their current status as the voice of policy expertise for the California Legislature in the fields of trust and probate law and family law. Larry also captained the Business Law Section’s successful efforts to enact California’s Limited Liability Company law, along with many other important pieces of legislation.
