He represents injured Texans in a wide range of cases to include: car accident cases; trucking accident cases; negligence, medical malpractice, products liability, contruction accidents, oil field accidents, and many others. He has recovered millions of dollars for his clients.
Mr. Colley typically handles cases of this type on a 'contingent fee' basis, which means that the client pays nothing unless he makes recovery for them.

He has also been inducted into the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA), which admits ONLY lawyers who have proven themselves to be among the top attorneys in the country with respect to trial experience and ability.
