After graduating from Gannon University, Colin Drabert moved to Richmond to study law at the T.C. Williams School of Law at the University of Richmond. While in law school he worked part-time with a personal injury law firm. This experience gave Colin Drabert great insight into the challenges individuals suffer when they have been injured by the negligence of another.
Colin has over eight years of criminal litigation experience in the Commonwealth of Virginia. He began his career in criminal litigation as an Assistant Public Defender in Lynchburg, Virginia. While he enjoyed the Lynchburg area, Colin Drabert was thrilled to have the opportunity to return to Richmond to serve as an Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney in Henrico County. Over his time as a defense attorney and prosecutor Colin has handled cases involving traffic offenses, driving under the influence, drug violations, larcenies, embezzlements, burglaries, firearms violations, arsons, robberies, sexual assaults, murders, and various other violations of the Virginia Code. He also has experience with criminal appeals, asset forfeiture matters and applications for concealed weapon permits.
Colin looks forward to using his experiences as a defense attorney and prosecutor to help navigate clients through the justice system and ensure that their rights are protected.
Colin is married and has one daughter. The Drabert family has recently begun serving as a foster family for the Richmond area SPCA. Colin’s daughter is looking forward to caring for new litters of kittens until they are old enough for adoption.
Outside of work, Colin enjoys cooking, an occasional Caribbean cruise with his family, NFL football and fantasy football. Colin is an avid fan of the Buffalo Bills and believes that this is the year that the team will finally end its playoff drought.
