Nicholas Colella

Nick was born and raised in Western Pennsylvania. After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Penn State University, he moved to Florida to attend the University of Florida College of Law. While there, Nick became a member of the University’s Alternative Dispute Resolution team where he and his partner placed top ten nationally amongst their peers.

During his time in law school, Nick worked with multiple private firms, as well as the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida, gaining invaluable hands on experience in a wide array of practice areas. He was first exposed to class action litigation during his summer internship with Carlson Lynch, assisting in data breach and privacy matters. Prior to rejoining Carlson Lynch, Nick started his professional career with a boutique firm in North Florida, representing financial institutions and corporations and focusing mainly on regulatory and compliance matters, incorporating areas of securities law, corporate and banking law.

Outside of practicing law, Nick enjoys spending time with his wife, Taylor, and their dogs and horses. He is a Pittsburgh sports fan (even the Pirates), and enjoys golfing, fishing and hunting.
