As a proud father of seven children, and grandfather to many, and with over 40 years of family law experience, he understands the special bonds children have with each parent. He advocates that both dads and moms should be able to parent their children. Unless a child is in danger of harm, he believes that every child has the right to enjoy a loving relationship with each parent.

Still, the movement for reform continues. Read more about Colman’s law reform work
