The firm was founded as Peterson and Colantoni in May of 2007 by Timothy A. Peterson and Christian C. Colantoni. Mr. Peterson was a partner at another law firm in Orange County. Mr. Colantoni was previously a partner at a firm located in Palm Springs.
The two man firm of Peterson & Colantoni has grown exponentially over the years and has since added four Partners, J. Barry Collins, Shara Marren, Terisa Phillips and Robert Tulk. Ms. Marren and Ms. Phillips have over twelve and thirteen years respectively of litigation experience as workers’ compensation defense attorneys and Mr. Collins joins the firm after most recently being a Workers’ Compensation Judge. In June 2014, the firm became known as Colantoni, Collins, Marren, Phillips & Tulk, LLP. Mr. Peterson left the firm in 2013, taking a position at Willis. Our firm’s Professional Sports practice is alive and well and now led by Partners J. Barry Collins and Robert Tulk.
The firm takes pride in its ability to provide prompt and effective legal counseling and litigation service. The firm utilizes the latest technology in order to respond quickly to client needs, even when the attorneys may be temporarily out of the office, in meetings, or at court appearances. The firm has the ability to provide a wide array of services in a cost-effective and prompt manner based upon the technological advances it has implemented inhouse.
