Day Pitney Partner Stan Twardy was quoted in the Connecticut Law Tribune article, "This Husband-and-Wife Lawyers Just Landed 2 of the Most Powerful Jobs in Connecticut," regarding the Day Pitney alumna Nora Dannehy being named the Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont's General Counsel and her husband Leonard Boyle being appointed by the U.S. Department of Justice as acting U.S. Attorney in Connecticut.
Twardy hired both Dannehy and Boyle when he was U.S. Attorney in Connecticut. Dannehy was also an attorney at Day Pitney from 1988 to 1991.
Twardy was quoted saying, "They are the most powerful legal couple in Connecticut. They are the all-star team, the big leagues. They are the perfect marriage both as a married couple and as a legal couple." He added, "Nora is a hard-charging and hard-working person, and Len is flatline, cool, calm and collected at all times. They are not only respected by their peers and colleagues, but also by their adversaries."
