Colin MacFarlane

Colin concentrates his practice in land use, zoning, real estate, liquor and municipal law. He has been involved in litigating or resolving issues regarding the development of mobile home parks, warehouses, and solar energy systems, as well as those related to zoning ordinance amendments, tax sales, liquor licenses, and condemnation.

When he is not advocating on behalf of his clients, Colin represents governing bodies and private clients at public meetings and zoning hearing board proceedings. He has extensive knowledge concerning the Municipalities Planning Code, Sunshine Act, Right-to-Know Law, Ethics Act, Second Class Township Code, Borough Code, and Municipal Authorities Act. Colin regularly drafts ordinances, resolutions, hearing decisions, agreements, leases, easements, declarations of taking, correspondence, pleadings, and briefs for his clients.

Colin is a proud “Double Duke” as a graduate of the Duquesne University School of Law, and the A.J. Palumbo School of Business at Duquesne University. Upon graduation, Colin spent a year clerking for the Honorable Clyde W. Vedder, President Judge of the Civil and Orphans’ Court Divisions of the York County Court of Common Pleas. During his tenure there, he gained invaluable experience and aided in drafting and editing over three dozen orders and accompanying opinions, none of which were appealed. Prior to graduation, Colin interned at the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh, served as an interim clerk for the Pennsylvania Superior Court, and worked for a boutique real estate law firm outside of Pittsburgh.  

Colin was born and raised in central New Jersey. When he is not working, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter, rooting for the Mets, and renovating his house.
