Colin J. Macfarlane joined the firm in September 2020 and focuses his practice on municipal law. He graduated from Duquesne University School of Law in May 2019 after focusing his studies on the areas of civil and constitutional law. He is a proud “Double Duke” as he also obtained a B.S., with honors, in Business Management and Entrepreneurship from Duquesne University in 2016.
Upon graduation from law school and after nearly eight years in Pittsburgh, Colin and his wife relocated to central Pennsylvania where he spent over a year clerking for the Honorable Clyde W. Vedder, Supervising Judge of the Civil and Orphans’ Court Divisions of the York County Court of Common Pleas. There, he assisted in drafting and editing over three dozen orders and accompanying opinions, none of which were appealed.
Throughout Colin’s studies, he gained valuable business and legal experience by interning at the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Pittsburgh, and then serving as an interim clerk for the Pennsylvania Superior Court in the summer between his first and second years of law school and the Law Offices of Edward J. Krug & Associates during his second and third years of law school.
Colin was born and raised in central New Jersey. He has two sisters, one of whom is his twin. When Colin is not working, he enjoys reading, exercising, watching the Mets and English Premier League soccer, and hiking.
