Attorney Profile

* Coluccio Law is working remotely and fully functioning. We are open extended hours, 9 am - 8 pm, for free consultations on personal injury cases. Stay safe, and stay healthy! *

For more than 30 years, I’ve been working to protect seriously injured people and the families of those who have died. 

In that time, my work has earned over $300 million dollars for injury and death claims.

My firm, Coluccio Law, is dedicated to creating real and positive change in people’s lives. We take on a limited number of cases so that we can offer high-quality, personalized legal service — and get the best possible result for each client. 

Nearly all of our cases involve semi-truck crashes or car crashes. We represent people who have suffered significant personal injuries or traumatic brain injuries. Contact us for a free consultation.

If you are looking for a lawyer because you recently lost someone, it can be hard to read about the details of wrongful death claims. Please know that you can speak with me directly at 206-826-8200.
