Colleen enjoys volunteering in her free time and is a current volunteer with Karma K-9 Rescue as a foster home. In the past, Colleen has been a “Big Sister” with Big Brothers Big Sisters Capital Region (6 years), a Managing Partner for Partners in Dance (a re-grant program receiving funding from NYS Dance Force and NYSCA); a former guest artist and on the advisor board for Nacre Dance Company.

Her practice objective is to assist her clients in identifying and realizing their estate planning and business goals and to minimize the stress of the home buying process. Prior to graduating law school, she participated in the Sixty Plus Elder Law Clinic (Lansing, MI), where she assisted clients in preparing their wills, probating loved-ones’ estates, and protecting the over-60 population from predatory business practices. In that clinic she was encouraged to engage in the practice of therapeutic jurisprudence, an approach she continues to use in her day-to-day practice.
