Doherty Law Firm


Terry Doherty


Attorney Terence E. Doherty has a unique, hands-on business background that enables him to specialize in providing business owners and managers with high quality, practical legal advice. The primary goal of the Doherty Law Firm, P.C. is to provide top quality, cost-effective legal and business services. Mr. Doherty’s practice serves clients in the areas of corporate law and business, real estate law, litigation, intellectual property and estate planning.

Mr. Doherty was raised in West Hartford, Connecticut, and received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in 1989 from the University of Connecticut, where he majored in economics, minored in US history, and was captain of the UConn Lacrosse Team.

After graduating from UConn, Mr. Doherty worked as a title and trust officer in the corporate headquarters for First American Title & Trust Co. in Santa Ana, California. Mr. Doherty left First American Title & Trust in 1994 to attend Whittier Law School in Los Angeles, California. At Whittier, Mr. Doherty had the rare distinction among law students nationwide of being a member of both the National Moot Court Honors Board and a published member of his school’s Law Review.

Upon graduating from Whittier Law School in 1997, Mr. Doherty accepted an "in-house" corporate position with Symetrix Corporation – a privately held semiconductor corporation located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Hired as Symetrix’s Associate Legal Counsel, Mr. Doherty was promoted to General Counsel and Chief Operating Officer in March of 1999. Mr. Doherty held these positions with Symetrix until he shifted his practice from “in-house” into a “private” legal practice in April of 2002. In June of 2006, Mr. Doherty formed the Doherty Law Firm, PC. Mr. Doherty’s practice is focused on business and corporate law, real estate law, litigation, intellectual property and estate planning.

Mr. Doherty has been an instructor and a consultant with the Small Business Development Center (“SBDC”) since 2002 and had also served on the SBDC Advisory Board. In 2010, Mr. Doherty received the “Volunteer of the Year” award from the SBDC in Colorado Springs and then also at the statewide level. In 2014, Mr. Doherty won second place in The Gazette’s “Best of the Springs” contest among all attorneys in Colorado Springs, and was voted as a “Top Lawyer” by his peers in 2015 and again in 2016.
