Mr. Colonese heads the Plaintiffs Practice Group at Brown Jacobson. He focuses his practice exclusively on representing and advocating for individuals in personal injury, workers’ compensation and employment cases.



The Plaintiffs Practice Group at Brown Jacobson is an experienced legal team dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals who have been injured due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another individual or organization.
If you have been injured – physically, emotionally, or financially, because someone else – perhaps a distracted driver, an irresponsible property owner, or even your own employer – didn’t play by the rules and now refuses to accept responsibly, we will work tirelessly to ensure that you receive justice and that the responsible parties are held accountable.
