Colin Beisel – Litigation, Personal Injury & Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Colin’s Jesuit education taught him to be a man for others.
This philosophy promotes the idea of standing up for the marginalized in society and pursuing justice on behalf of all persons. Since joining McLaughlin & Lauricella, P.C. in 2015, Colin has taken this mission to heart by devoting his career to protecting the rights of catastrophically injured men and women. It is also this philosophy which guides his daily practice, which includes medical malpractice, wrongful death, dram shop act, and sexual abuse cases.

Additionally, Colin was a law student member of the American Association for Justice—the only organization of its kind dedicated to ensuring that all people can seek justice in our nation’s courtrooms.
While an undergraduate at John Carroll University in Cleveland, Colin was a national-ranked policy debater and Presidential Leadership Fellow. He graduated from John Carroll with degrees in political science, philosophy, and theology.
