“To me, the practice of law is a tremendous opportunity to help other people. Ever since I chose to go to law school, I wanted to have the opportunity to make a difference. I wasn’t sure how I could accomplish that goal, then I met Attorney Dino Colombo and joined the team at Colombo Law. At Colombo Law, our firm’s purpose is oriented directly towards helping other people.”
