I was born into a wonderful consortium of huge Irish, Catholic families on the West Side of Cleveland, Ohio. Although I am the oldest of merely three children, my mom was one of ten, and hers was a relatively small family in that neighborhood. So we were constantly surrounded by aunts, uncles, and cousins—lots of cousins!

Growing up, we not only knew everybody, but as my best friend would often remark when we went out and I would have to stop to talk to everybody we ran into, we were somehow related to everybody in town!

Having grown up knowing so many people so well, I developed a profound love for people, a desire to serve, and a determination to make it my life’s work to make people’s lives better, however possible. That led me to pursue careers in policy, ministry, and politics, but ultimately to a career in law.

I received my Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Wellesley College, then my Juris Doctorate in Law, and my Master’s degree in Communications from Regent University.

Upon completing my education, I worked in the nonprofit sector for such organizations as the Flying Hospital International, the Christian Broadcasting Network, Operation Blessing, the Center for Law and Religious Freedom, and the Christian Legal Society, and most recently, before joining Holcomb Law, I served as the Executive Director of The Capitol Hill office of Eagle Forum, and as the director of Eagle Forum’s Political Action Committee.

In addition to my duties with Holcomb Law, I am currently the Executive Director of the Republican National Coalition for Life.

I am thankful to have had such an exciting career, one that allowed me to meet so many remarkable people, and to have so many unique experiences, but I always hoped to have a family of my own. I was very fortunate later in my life to meet and marry Holcomb Law founder, Wayne Holcomb, a retired Navy pilot turned attorney (my Harmon Rabb!). He was well worth the wait, and, as if that weren’t enough, he came with a bonus, three of the most beautiful, kind, exceptional children I have ever met, Chandler, Camden, and Katie.

I’m honored to work with Wayne and the extraordinary Holcomb Law team to help Hampton Roads families navigate the often difficult and challenging paths that lead them to need to seek our services. I look forward to continuing to help our clients find the empathy, encouragement, and ultimately the answers they need to get through the temporary troubles and on with their lives.

Complicated custody and relocation
Colleen stood beside me in court during one of the scariest and most stressful days of my life, and she made me feel at ease and confident about everything we were doing. She was kind, and gracious, and so easy to talk to. Her courtroom strategy and demeanor were beyond strong. I deeply appreciate the work she did and the outcome we received because of her diligence. I highly recommend Colleen and the other attorneys at Holcomb Law.
