California Attorney Turning Strategies into Solutions

Advising you of your rights and asserting your legal options

At the Law Office of Curtis D. Colaw, our experience and reputation have earned us a distinguished position in the legal profession that rivals those of larger firms. From your first contact with us to your last, you will experience the quality and dedication that has been provided to my clients since I first established my own legal practice in 1992 after 5 years with a larger firm. With more than 25 years of legal experience, I offer individuals and businesses in Modesto, Merced and Stockton and throughout Northern California aggressive and knowledgeable legal representation.

Equipped with experience and resources you can rely on

My 25 years in practice allows me to offer you comprehensive services in areas that matter to you and your business. While I am open to all settlement opportunities, I negotiate from a position of strength based on the assumption that they will go to trial.  Before settlements are reached, investigative information is gathered to determine the solvency of debtors and availability of assets to pay settled claims.

What can you expect from the Law Office of Curtis D. Colaw?

  • A strong focus on debt collection From unpaid trade debts to breach of contract actions, I have helped a wide variety of clients — including credit unions, large and small businesses and corporations, and financing companies – to collect the money owed to them. My clients know that when they have a tough collections case that will take a lot of resources, they can count on me to provide counsel and assistance.
  • Dynamic, intelligent representation — Many lawsuits require a strong background in the underlying subjects of the litigation. I have access to a reservoir of case law from which I can identify successful strategies for you, even in the toughest cases. My legal practice also consistently challenges me to stay on top of changing legislation and codes that may affect you.
  • Understanding of your financial position Lawsuits can draw valuable time and resources away from your company, which is why I continually strive for an early settlement while still building a case for trial. My aggressive approach to procedural trial preparation allows me to negotiate effectively at all stages of litigation.
  • Long-standing client relationships — I am proud to say that a large portion of my new clients are referred by current and previous clients and other attorneys.

Committed to providing results

Running a business is difficult and often filled with uncertainty, but your relationship with your attorney does not have to be stressful. Throughout the process, I offer confidence and peace of mind to empower you to make informed decisions about the future. I treat each client individually and tailor my litigation approach considering each client's needs and resources.
