Colleen M. Gibbons

Colleen Gibbons has joined the firm in the Trusts and Estates Practice Area. She participated in the Bousquet Holstein Law Student Associate Program in 2016. Colleen is a Syracuse native and enjoys connecting with those in the community. Colleen’s approach is to understand her clients’ goals and to best determine what they need before offering legal counsel. Personalized client engagement is what sets Colleen apart in working through complex trusts and estates matters as she focuses on becoming her clients’ trusted advisor.

Colleen is a 2017 cum laude alumna of the Syracuse University College of Law, having completed curricular programs in disability law and policy and estate planning. As a law student, Colleen actively represented clients in both the Disability Law Clinic and the Low-Income Taxpayer Clinics. She served as a research assistant to Professor Mary Helen McNeal and assisted with the editing process for the article “Say What? The Affordable Care Act, Medicare, and Hearing Aids” published in the Harvard Journal on Legislation.

In her time before law school, Colleen worked at Syracuse University’s Falk College as the Project Manager for a National Institutes of Health grant, focusing on expanding access to research experiences and resources for people with disabilities. Colleen completed her M.S. and Ph.D. in Human and Community Development at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and her B.S. in Exceptional Education at Buffalo State College. She taught elementary school in Oneida, NY for five years.

Colleen is actively involved with the Volunteer Lawyers Project of Onondaga County, where she volunteers to provide legal assistance and advice to low-income members of the Syracuse community. Colleen is a lifelong animal advocate and is a member of the Onondaga County Bar Association’s Volunteer Advocate Lawyer for Animals program; she also is on the mentoring committee for the CNY Women’s Bar Association. Colleen recently joined the Syracuse University Law Alumni Association (SULAA) board and looks forward to maintaining an active and engaged connection to her alma mater.
