Collum and has been in private practice since 1999, beginning his practice shortly following his graduation from law school.

Following his graduation from law school and prior to entering the practice of law, Attorney Collum worked as an Asset Management Consultant for the Great American Group, and was personally responsible for the disposition of $15,000,000.00 of assets during his brief one year tenure with the company, which included the corporate liquidation of Builders Square.

Since 1999, Attorney Collum has been lead trial counsel in over 400 sexual harassment cases as well as hundreds of other discrimination cases and has encountered almost every fact pattern or situation a company may face when defending a sexual harassment or discrimination lawsuit. These cases have ranged subjectively from what may be considered less severe cases of sexual harassment to representing victims who have been viciously raped and attacked by company employees. Attorney Collum’s representation in these types of cases has involved 85-90% individuals with 10-15% being employment defense—this makes him uniquely qualified to provide your company or organization the insight you need to prevent these types of matters from escalating into a time-consuming and costly endeavor.

Truly, the need for proper sexual harassment and discrimination consulting and conjunction with training is important to every company and the ability to have that one person, a “point-person,” available to direct any questions to at any time is a priceless resource for every company and this is the most valuable aspect of Mr. Collum’s services.
