Toby joined the firm in 1972 and has served both the firm and the New London legal community with distinction and grace. Toby’s many accomplishments include Judge of Probate for Lyme, counsel for New England Savings Bank and the Eastern Connecticut Association of Realtors (ECAR) and chair of the New London Bank Bar Committee. Toby has long been recognized as the pre-eminent real estate attorney in New London County.
