Colton joined BLM&H in 2023 as an Associate in the Corporate and Securities, and Employment practice groups. Prior to joining BLM&H, Colton clerked for a Virginia-based law firm where he researched and wrote memoranda regarding a variety of legal matters, including restrictive covenants and franchisor liability. Colton also clerked for the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) where he collaboratively researched, wrote and edited official reports sent to the United Nations regarding the status of human rights in various countries. At the ACLJ, he also analyzed consequential bills moving through state legislatures and contributed to research for an amicus brief filed in the U.S. Supreme Court for a First Amendment case. Colton’s law school, through its Center for Global Justice, sent him to Pohang, South Korea where he worked at Handong International Law School. While at Handong, Colton assisted professors with research and writing on U.S. public policy (most significantly state COVID-19 policy) and did legal work for a business startup accelerator.

Colton earned a Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Management from Regent University, where he served in leadership positions for several campus organizations.
