Colman, a medical malpractice attorney at Finz & Finz, P.C., has been committed for the past 20 years to the steadfast and compassionate representation of victims of medical malpractice and nursing home neglect.

Ms. Colman began her career in 1995 at a health care law firm, where she represented physicians and other medical professionals in disciplinary proceedings involving allegations of medical malpractice as well as administrative and statutory violations.

Ms. Colman draws upon that experience to advocate zealously and thoroughly on behalf of medical malpractice victims. In addition, Ms. Colman has significant experience representing clients with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), formerly known as reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD).
