Biography – Mary H. Colway, Attorney at Law

Mary H. Colway, a graduate of the Hofstra University School of Law, was admitted to practice in the New York courts in 1983.

After graduation from Law School, she worked as an attorney for AT&T, at the time the largest corporation in the world. In addition to working as a litigator, she explored alternative dispute resolution as a vehicle for resolving the myriad of antitrust cases involving AT&T.

For the past fifteen years, she has maintained a private practice in Lynbrook and then East Rockaway, concentrating in the areas of matrimonial and family law. During this time period, in 1996, she successfully completed Touro Law School’s Divorce Mediation program. Mary has come to realize that mediation is truly the best path for many people to pursue in resolving family law matters and now works primarily as a matrimonial and family mediator.

In addition to her work as a lawyer and mediator, she served as an elected official in Lynbrook.
