Managing Attorney T. Greg Doucette took a nontraditional path to becoming a lawyer and relies on his 16+ years of experience across the legal, government relations, and information technology arenas to serve his clients.
Once a homeless college dropout back in 2000, T. Greg knows first-hand the effects of poverty in the Raleigh-Durham area — and knows one of the surest ways to lift people out of poverty is by empowering them to obtain an education and a job. T. Greg’s passion for uplifting others is what prompted him to start a litigation-centric firm focused on helping small businesses and college students.
An admitted “tech geek,” T. Greg graduated from North Carolina State University in Raleigh with his degree in Computer Science in 2009. While at N.C. State he was twice elected by the Student Body to serve as the University’s Student Senate President. Before beginning his second term, T. Greg was also elected by student leaders across North Carolina to serve simultaneously as President of the statewide UNC Association of Student Governments.
After graduation, T. Greg went on to attend law school at the North Carolina Central University School of Law in Durham. During his 1L year T. Greg served a second term as UNCASG President following a unanimous reelection, and was captain of the law school’s 1L Trial Advocacy Team that took 2nd Place against 31 other teams in the annual Kilpatrick Stockton Mock Trial Competition hosted by UNC Chapel Hill. He also won 3rd Place in NCCU Law’s Mary Wright 1L Closing Argument Competition.
As a 2L T. Greg was the elected Treasurer of the law school’s Student Bar Association, captain of the 2L TYLA National Trial Competition team, a member of the 2L AAJ Student Trial Advocacy Competition team, as well as the 2nd Place winner in NCCU Law’s Michael Easley 2L Opening Statement Competition.
In his last year at the North Carolina Central University School of Law as a 3L, T. Greg served as the elected President of the Student Bar Association — joining only a handful of white Presidents to have ever served the historically black institution since its founding in 1939.
T. Greg also led the 3L TYLA Trial Advocacy Team that ranked #1 going into the Region 5 semifinals, outranking every law school in the states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Tennessee. He won 1st place in NCCU Law’s Willie Gary 3L Closing Argument Competition, in addition to winning the awards for Best Oral Argument and Best Overall Performance in the law school’s Ernest Fullwood Moot Court competition.
T. Greg graduated cum laude from NCCU Law in May 2012, passed the North Carolina bar exam that July, and started the Law Offices of T. Greg Doucette PLLC days after taking the attorney’s Oath of Office in September 2012.
Also known by his nom de plume T. (“TDot”) and his nom de guerre TGD, T. Greg publishes the blog law:/dev/null where he shares his musings on law school and life as an attorney. He also volunteers with several philanthropic groups, including N.C. State’s Friends of the Library and NCCU Law’s Alumni Association.
He lives in Durham with his beagle Samson.
