Having had prior contact with Colgan and knowing he is well experienced in his field, I initiated a consultation for divorce proceedings. He was patient, attentive and professionally accommodating.
I was so pleased with his work, I recommended others I knew to seek him out. He's well worth the cost.
To all concerned: My situation with my recent divorce was quite unique. I had ideas of my own that were very unorthodox. Tim listened to them very closely and although they were different he heard me loud and clear of what I wished to accomplish. This was truly unexpected. My unique situation and request were not only adhered to but improved immensely by Tim to best protect my interests that I did not realize I was leaving myself open for. Responses to question were prompt, to the point and accurate no matter the communication avenue used ie. email, phone and in person. When I first started this venture I was skeptical due to the "blood sucking Lawyer" bad rap and of course finances. The entire team at Colgan was extremely courteous and certainly more than capable. The total experience as tough as it was from a personal standpoint was nearly SEAMLESS!! Costs were reasonable, I was treated like I mattered and that they cared!! what else could you ask for? Sorry Tim and your team but I hope I never have to talk to you again (LOL about personal matters any way) but if something should arise I will surely call you first! Thanks for everything!! You and your firm can change that bad rap!!

Mr. Colgan did an outstanding job for me. I gave him a very short time line and he responded immediately to my needs. He is a true professional who is honest and caring. He is a man of integrity. I do not hesitate to give him my highest recommendation.

As a lawyer myself, I interact with many lawyers on a daily basis. Like any profession, there are lawyers who exemplify the highest level of diligence, competence and trustworthiness, and lawyers who lack one or more of those characteristics, oftentimes due to lack of experience or simple disregard.. Tim Colgan is someone who, I believe, embodies the qualities of a lawyer with the highest level of professional ethics. When I was faced with a highly sensitive interfamilial dispute, a close friend recommended Tim to me. Following my initial consultation, I knew that I was in good hands. It was quite obvious that Tim knew the law inside and out . He gave me solid legal advice and outstanding representation throughout the litigation. I could tell that he was well respected by opposing counsel and his peers. My observation of Tim Colgan is this. As a lawyer, Tim, in my personal experience, is among the best. As a person, Tim is a truly caring, genuine individual. The combination of his professional and personal traits makes for the best representation a client could ask for. I know that lawyers can have a reputation for causing more heartbreak and headache, but as odd as this may sound, the legal work that Tim did for me established peace in my household for which I am ever grateful. My spouse and I will continue to use Tim and his excellent staff for years to come and we will recommend him and his firm to our friends, family, and colleagues.

I had a positive experience as a result of retaining attorney Colgan. I found his name from a list of lawyers in my area, and I am happy to recommend him in issues of divorce. He is very professional, and quite knowledgeable in divorce law. He always seemed to have my best interest and the interests of my children in mind when providing advice. He was always available and returned calls or responded to e-mails in a prompt manner. I felt very comfortable communicating my needs, and hearing my options.
He was very flexible when it came to arranging meetings, since he practices in two separate offices. Overall I am very pleased with the way my divorce was handled.

Mr. Colgan was very knowledgeable about family law and was excellent at explaining matters that were confusing. He also demonstrated an extraordinary ability to read between the lines of what a person was saying, and seemed to understand the tactics of an abusive/controlling person. When the collaborative process became murky, he was able to stay on top of the important issues at hand and guide the process to a positive and fair outcome, particularly when my former spouse tried to change the topic or take control excessively.

When considering filing for divorce, I knew I would want to go the "collaborative" route as we both were not going to make this an "ugly" experience for either one of us or our child. Tim was very understanding and guided me through the various options I could take and was very up front about how this can be done in a civil manner which would be best for all. He was extremely trustworthy and knowledgeable and I greatly appreciate how he guided me through an extremely painful and difficult time.

I would first like to thank everyone for their professional expertise. Mr. Colgan was recommended to me cause I was looking for someone who would have my best interest. This was a very long drawn out divorce. I was always kept in the loop and told of what to expect when the next meeting would come up. Mr. Colgan always returned my calls and emails and always had an answer for my question. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He always took charge when we had to meet with the other lawyers and I always felt confident in his decision. He would give you both sides and explain it to you so you could make a confident choice.

There have been numerous times when my family has needed to engage a trusted and skilled lawyer during difficult times. In each situation, we turned to Mr. Colgan and his firm. Each time, not only did we get the best result possible, but the process getting there was both straightforward and compassionate. He laid out all of our options, helped us assess both the short-term and long-term possible outcomes and created a sensible plan for moving forward. During this time, he has helped different members of my family work through a tough divorce amicably, arrive at a custody agreement that was not only fair for both parents but importantly ultimately proved to be in the best interest of the child and get through trying DUI cases with minimal long term consequences. All the time, he never pre-judged anyone's actions, always treated us with the utmost respect and was readily available to answer any questions or concerns we had. I would recommend Mr. Colgan to anyone who was going through a trying family situation.

I contacted Mr. Colgan seeking clarification regarding family law. I was contacted promptly & an appointment was set up quickly. My child's biological father's rights were terminated when my child was young. Now that a grandchild has entered the arena he felt he had rights to exercise regarding the expected child. Mr. Colgan double checked case law from the time the rights were terminated & confirmed that he had no rights to exercise regarding the grandchild. He then sent a letter explaining he has no rights & also requesting him to end all communication attempts direct or indirect with any family member. I received a follow up call updating me on the letter delivery. Mr. Colgan was professional & personable. I would not hesitate to contact him again if needed as my experience was excellent.
