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.
