About me

I truly enjoy my work as an attorney and business owner.  There is great satifaction in helping clients obtain the assistance they need.


My prior career as a CPA has given me the ability to quickly understand a person's finances and how they can best benefit under the bankruptcy laws or whether they can qualify for a loan modification to save their home.


My prior experience as a litigation attorney gives me the ability to aggressively fight for clients to obtain the best possible settlement or punish a bad acting creditor.  I've taken cases to trial before and will readily go there again if that's what it takes to win.


I place great emphasis on customer service, and that is why I personally meet with every potential client during our free initial consultation.  I also personally work on and manage your case the entire way through.  When you need to reach me, I am just a phone call or email away.


I know that a working client can't always meet during normal business hours, and that is why I make myself available as early as 7 a.m., after 5 p.m. and on Saturdays.  Sundays are strictly family time.


Although I love being a lawyer, my family is most important.  I have a beautiful wife and 2 kids, and I enjoy spending my free time with them.  We like to travel and spend time with friends.


If you would like to discuss your legal situation, please give me a call to schedule your free initial consultation.

    I endorse Colin Colgan without reservation. He is the consummate professional: well-versed in the law, a staunch advocate for his clients, and a real gentleman to boot. I've never heard Colin raise his voice, nor have I ever seen him get upset. If you need a great lawyer, you can't do better than Colin Colgan.
