"I am very pleased to join the team of attorneys at Bacon Wilson, P.C. I work primarily in the business and corporate department, but my practice consists of more than just commercial law. I am joining hands with attorneys in our criminal law, litigation, and immigration departments as well."

Colleen's area of focus is commercial law, as well as growing criminal, litigation, and immigration practices. She worked for the New Haven Superior Court as a Family Violence Victim Advocate, and studied comparative and international law in Curacao. Colleen is licensed both Massachusetts and New York.
