Judge Colaw handled a 13-week trial that had a lot of issues, including ones of seeming first impression, and his scholarship and approach to the case was a testament to what a judge should be.

Judge Colaw is very practical in dealing with scheduling issues and genuinely tries to accommodate the parties and attorneys. He is reasonable and considers the parties' positions before ruling. Very reasonable and easy to deal with. Especially good in complex cases with many parties--he approaches issues with a pragmatic mindset that all seem to appreciate.
