  • Daniel Joseph DeBene

    Mr. Colman has been opposing counsel on numerous matters and he has always been a pleasure to litigate against. Although we were "against" each other due to our respective clients' positions, Mr. Colman has always been respectful and courteous. He is a highly regarded and compassionate attorney that I have the utmost respect for.
