Stan Twardy and Christopher Droney were quoted in the Connecticut Law Tribune article, "Meet Lawyers Elevated to Top Spot at U.S. Attorney's Office in Connecticut," regarding the U.S. Department of Justice naming Leonard Boyle as acting U.S. Attorney in Connecticut. The article mentions that Boyle, whom the Department of Justice elevated to the post, replaces John Durham, who resigned as U.S. Attorney, effective February 28.
Day Pitney partner Twardy, who was the U.S. Attorney from 1985 to 1991, brought Boyle to the office in 1986. "I brought him on because Len had the legal skills, interpersonal skills and the ethical compass that made him attractive to us … he is someone who knows right from wrong," he explains.
Day Pitney Partner Droney, who was the U.S. Attorney from 1993 to 1997, promoted Boyle to Chief of the Criminal Division one year after taking over the helm.
Droney explains, "I couldn't think of anyone better for this job. It's rare to have someone with the kind of experience he has not just with the U.S. Attorney's Office, but also with the state as commissioner of the State Police and as a police officer."
