Are you an attorney? Endorse this lawyer

  • Alan Shelley Ross

    I endorse this lawyer. Colleen co-counseled a very serious criminal matter with me in Bradenton. All of the charges against our client were dismissed after several years of litigation. Colleen was absolutely terrific. She knows the law; she was great in court; the client and his family appreciated her willingness to go the extra mile and I appreciate her energy and willingness to devote whatever time may have been necessary. I hope we will have another chance to work together. She's a good one!

She has well earned the highest endorsement possible for her proven performance. We have tried cases together, and I would do so again and again. She is a great asset to the legal community.
