Neil N. Colicchio, Esq. | Solo Practitioner, Attorney | Law Office of Neil N. Colicchio

Neil N. Colicchio gravitated toward the legal field from a young age, having grown up in a law family headed by his father, one of the chief individuals who organized the public defenders in Massachusetts. After earning a Bachelor of Science in biology from Boston State College in 1981, he attended Suffolk University Law School, during which time he was an intern and a student prosecutor at the district attorney’s office. He obtained a Doctor of Jurisprudence, was admitted to practice in Massachusetts in 1985, and launched his career as a staff attorney at the Committee for Public Counsel Services. He subsequently served in this role at the Law Office of Joseph P. Marchese from 1987 to 1988 before opening his own private practice, the Law Office of Neil N. Colicchio, which found success from 1989 to 2000.

Serving as a managing attorney at the Law Office of H. Drew Romanovitz from 2000 to 2001, Mr. Colicchio has been an independent attorney ever since. He has excelled as a solo practitioner and attorney through the Law Office of Neil N. Colicchio since 2001—based out of Essex County for 17 years and out of Worcester starting in 2018. Over the course of his legal career, he has been especially proud of helping a woman who was facing 47 indictments against her in the superior court. While this could have resulted in her going to state prison for nine to 12 years, he was able to negotiate it down to a two-and-a-half-year county sentence. He admired her a lot and witnessed her turn her life around, as well as establish trust with her, which were proud moments for him.

Mr. Colicchio is a dedicated member of the Massachusetts Bar Association, Worcester County Bar Association, and National Association for Public Defense, and has a Mary E. Lynch Award from Boston State College and an American Jurisprudence Award in Commercial Law.  Looking ahead five years, he aims to retire from full-time work and focus on helping expunge records so people can get employment. Mr. Colicchio is married with two sons and an English white cream golden retriever.

He said, “I am a public defender, it runs through my veins. I live, eat, and breathe it every day.”
