Our Leadership

Colin Flora

Civil Litigation Attorney
“As a plaintiff’s lawyer, we have to understand the case better than the defense ever can if we’re going to win. We go in knowing every argument they should make and we’re very happy when it turns out they don’t make them.”
Colin Flora has a mind that is always at work—as evidenced by his lengthy resume’ of academic accomplishments and published legal writings. Visit our blog and see for yourself.

Colin would say that his work ethic comes from growing up next door to his grandfather in Northern Indiana. His intellect, from his parents—both high school math teachers.

He is someone who exemplifies the benefits of growing up in a midwestern environment that values hard work and disciplined study.

As an undergrad at IU South Bend, Colin attended classes as one of the inaugural class of Indiana University’s Herbert Presidential Scholars. He completed his studies a year early, earning high distinctions while also working as a research assistant.

He then enrolled in Indiana University’s Robert H. McKinney School of Law, graduating with honors in 2011, and landing a series of highly coveted clerkships —one with the Hamilton County Prosecutors office and after, with a prominent Indianapolis law firm.

Colin is a legal strategist with remarkable instincts for uncovering what others miss. His is the kind of bright legal mind that Eric Pavlack had in mind when he started the firm.

Colin’s experience and reputation as an attorney with a rich understanding of how to dissect court decisions and evidentiary practices make him a formidable opponent in complex legal matters and the kind of attorney you want on your side.
