As a law student Colin got his first taste of the criminal law as a student prosecutor for the Hampden County District Attorney. A proud moment in his academic career came when he was selected to be the graduating class speaker.
After years of hard winters in Canada and New England, Colin decided to move out west to practice law and get away from shoveling snow. Upon arriving in Arizona he settled for several years in Tombstone, where he holds the distinction of becoming the first Tombstone resident to be sworn into the practice of law in Arizona.
Before he became a criminal defense lawyer, Colin was a prosecutor on the U.S.-Mexico border. Prosecuting a wide variety of crimes, including drug possession, DUI, and fraud, it was here that Colin honed his skills as a lawyer as he prosecuted hundreds of felony and misdemeanor cases during his career with the Cochise County Attorney’s Office.
Colin moved to the Valley in 2013 to become a defense lawyer. As a member of the defense bar he zealously represents his clients in the criminal courts. As a former prosecutor Colin understands how powerful the State is and how important it is that defense lawyers fight for their clients.
