Colin is an associate in the Minneapolis office of Ogletree Deakins. Colin graduated from the University of St. Thomas School of Law, where he earned Dean’s List honors several times and gained substantial hands-on litigation experience, including participating on one of the School’s Moot Court teams and arguing a motion before a Federal Bankruptcy Judge in one of the School’s Clinics. Colin received his undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Stout.
Colin started his employment law career at a local Minneapolis law firm, focusing his practice on employee-side employment litigation. Thereafter, Colin transitioned his practice to a large regional defense firm where he focused his practice on employer-side employment litigation and counsel. As a result, Colin brings his unique insight of both the employee- and employer-side of employment law to each of his representations and interactions. His childhood dream of becoming an attorney has led Colin to become a resourceful subject matter expert, passionate advocate, and a fearless litigator. Colin uses his skills to counsel employers on myriad employment law issues and tell his client’s story to secure positive results in administrative proceedings and civil litigation.
When Colin is outside of the office, he enjoys exploring the beautiful scenery that Minnesota has to offer, cooking, learning the ancient strategy game of “Go,” and spending time with his significant other and puppy.
