Colleen M. Meenan

Partner

Colleen is the founder of Meenan & Associates, a thriving general law practice cultivated through insightful legal strategies, she has developed for both businesses and individuals for over 27 years.

Before practicing law, Colleen was a decorated New York City police officer. Colleen’s selfless sense of service and innate “street smarts” influence the firm’s core values, which include loyalty to the client’s best interests, personalized attention, and instinctive problem solving. Colleen’s focus of practice includes assisting small business owners, not-for-profits, and start-ups navigate the various legal issues that can arise in business formation, sales and acquisitions and operation.

In addition, Colleen is a well-known for her uncompromising advocacy for work place fairness for workers; just compensation for deserving victims; and proper care and respect for the disabled and the elderly. Colleen has obtained a number of successful employment related jury verdicts for her clients. Significant victories she has obtained for clients have been affirmed by the New York State Court of Appeals in the cases of Albunio v. City of New York, 16 N.Y.3d 472 (2011) and Sandiford v. City of New York, 22 N.Y. 3d 914 (2013).

In her efforts to advance the rights of workers, Colleen testified before the New York City Council in December of 2015 in support of Int. 0814-2015, a proposed amendment to the City’s human rights law, requiring trial courts to correctly interpret the statute and recognize its broad and remedial purposes. This amendment was subsequently passed by the City Council, amending Administrative Code § 8-130 and affording workers the intended protections.
