Colleen M. Malchow


I was born and raised in Western New York. My father, A Vietnam Veteran, worked for Bethlehem Steel and then spent 28 years with the United States Post Office. My mother has worked in a doctor’s office for the past 25 years. Their commitment to their careers has shaped my strong work ethic and dedication to my profession.

After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from Niagara University, I worked as a domestic violence advocate at Haven House, a local women’s shelter. My work with victims of domestic violence prompted me to attend law school at the University at Buffalo.

In 2007, I accepted my first job representing individuals who have suffered on-the-job injuries. I was fortunate to gain a significant amount of experience representing injured workers and have given numerous presentations to doctors, lawyers and human resource departments on the Workers’ Compensation Law.

In 2013, I was named a Board Member for the Lancaster Youth Foundation and became associated with the Workers’ Compensation sub-committee at Palladian Health.

I joined the team at Dolce Panepinto in 2013 where I continue to assist clients in navigating the often complex Workers’ Compensation system.
