Colin decided on a legal career while earning his undergraduate degree at Grand Valley State University. He then attended Ave Maria School of Law, supplementing his on-campus education as a law clerk to two separate firms and as an intern with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Toledo, Ohio before receiving his Juris Doctor in 2008.
After law school, Colin joined the Manistee County Prosecutor’s Office. As an assistant prosecutor, he regularly appeared in court across a wide range of felony and misdemeanor criminal matters, handling pre-trial proceedings, bench and jury trials, and appeals before the Michigan Court of Appeals and the Michigan Supreme Court. Looking to grow his civil litigation experience, he joined a boutique litigation firm, learning the nuances of no-fault law and managing a busy docket of cases across Southeastern Michigan. Colin is adept at handling discovery, motion practice, and trial preparation, and has second-chaired a number of trials with impressive outcomes.
