Our History


Collora LLP was founded in 1988 by Thomas E. Dwyer, Jr., Michael A. Collora and Kathy B. Weinman, and was originally dedicated to the service of clients accused of serious or complex criminal offenses.

From its inception, our firm developed a unique personality and approach to practice.  While we are professionally discreet, we are open, upbeat, contemporary and creative in dealing with our clients.

Our firm is recognized not only for its highly-skilled courtroom advocates, but for our constant dedication to improving the justice system and to improving legal service for our clients and the general public. Collora LLP has consistently participated in local and national programs for improvement of the bench and bar, including programs sponsored by the local state and federal courts and the American College of Trial Lawyers.

We are particularly proud to be one of the first firms to embrace the concepts of superior client service, including providing litigation budgets and working out alternative fee arrangements for our clients.
