Gawthrop Greenwood real estate and community association attorney James D. Doyle has been named to the inaugural class of “Emerging Leaders Under 40” by the Community Associations Institute – Keystone Chapter (CAI).

Only 15 young leaders were chosen from the organization’s thousands of members, and Doyle is one of only two attorneys with the designation. According to CAI Keystone, “Emerging Leaders Under 40 celebrates the unique and passionate leadership of talented young leaders in the chapter, gives them a professional boost to increase their impact and recognizes them as the future leaders of the industry.”

Doyle was also recently appointed to Pennsylvania’s Legislative Action Committee for CAI, an international trade association with nearly 40,000 members that is at the forefront of community association law and dedicated to building better communities.

With a real estate practice spanning Chester, Montgomery and Delaware counties, Doyle concentrates his practice in homeowners and condominium association law, real estate transactions and litigation, zoning and land use, buyer/seller disputes and title matters. He serves clients who are involved in the formation, governance and management of condominium and homeowners associations, and individuals and businesses who are involved in the buying, selling and development of residential and commercial land.

Doyle serves on the Board of Directors and Executive Committee for the Chester County Bar Association and is a former Chair of the Real Estate Section, Judicial Evaluation Committee and Young Lawyers Division. He also formerly served on the Board of Directors for the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce and as Vice Chair of the West Chester Borough Zoning Hearing Board.

Doyle has been recognized as a “Top Lawyer” by Main Line Today magazine, as well as a “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers, a distinction that only 2.5% of attorneys in Pennsylvania receive. He received his Juris Doctorate from Widener University School of Law and Bachelor of Arts in Economics from Villanova University, where he also studied international relations in Beijing, China.
