As a former Assistant United States Attorney and Princeton graduate, I help lawyers nationwide to succeed by providing legal research, brief writing, trial support, and other on-demand services. I also represent parties on appeal in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York, and handle litigation and criminal matters on a more selective basis. 

I proudly serve solo practitioners, law firms of all sizes, corporate legal departments, and government entities across the country.  My comprehensive portfolio of services includes:

●  Legal Research & Analysis

●  Pleadings & Motions

●  Memoranda & Brief Writing 

●  Discovery & Document Review

●  Trial Support

●  Court Appearances, Depositions, & ADR

●  CLE Seminars

My rates are reasonable and highly competitive, especially given my experience and skill level. I keep overhead expenses low by using "virtual" offices as well as cutting-edge resources and technologies. 

I have enjoyed 20 years of success as an attorney. I clerked for a federal judge and practiced with preeminent large law firms. I successfully represented billion-dollar companies, government entities, and individuals. I have also served as First Associate Commissioner of the New York City Department of Investigation, Assistant Deputy Mayor of Philadelphia, and an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey. 

I am the author or co-author of several law journal articles and a book published by New York University Press.  To date, I have created and taught 12 continuing legal education courses for attorneys across the country.  I graduated from New York University School of Law and Princeton University.  I am a member of the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York Bars.

Would you like to win more cases with the help of an experienced freelance attorney?

I bring 20 years of experience in litigation, criminal cases, and appeals. My team and I customize our on-demand legal services for each client and each case, which always reflects the client's budget, timeline, and goals. We recognize that each client is unique, and no two cases are the same.    

Would you like more time to grow your client relationships and bring in new clients? 

Our goal is not only to help you win cases, but enable you to grow your business.  

Would you like to avoid the high costs of hiring an associate given that business ebbs and flows?

Would you like only highly qualified U.S. lawyers to perform your work?

Unlike some competitors, we will not assign your work to paralegals, law students, or foreign attorneys.  

Are you searching for a dynamic and experienced CLE presenter?

I will use my CLE expertise to develop customized seminars that meet your needs.

Are you filing or defending an appeal in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or New York?  

We will be your passionate advocate throughout the appellate process. We know what it takes to win. We believe that an appeal is not the end of the road. It is a new beginning. 


"I have been a litigator for more than 10 years. I hired Coleen in a sort of "co-counsel"/consulting role just as I was about to begin a federal trial. On short notice, I needed Coleen to research and draft a trial brief on a very important issue. Her work was excellent. Since then, I have brainstormed strategy with Coleen in preparation for an appeal in the same case. Very smart and pleasant to work with."
