Colleen Elaine Coveney: Attorney with Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLP

Biography

Advocating for clients in a variety of civil rights discrimination and retaliation matters, including cases involving sexual assaults and harassment on college campuses, employment discrimination and retaliation, and whistleblower matters.

Public justice has always been something that has been very close to my heart. Although the role I have played making an impact for the public good has evolved over the years, my commitment to the cause has never wavered. Fighting for the rights of workers who have been wronged is critically important to preserving social justice, and I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to help uphold and protect worker’s rights on a daily basis.
