Jacqueline Colclough is a partner at Regan Zambri Long PLLC. Prior to joining our firm, she worked as a registered nurse, making her uniquely qualified to litigate injury claims with complicated medical issues. Jackie is known for her compassion and empathy for her clients, her commitment and diligence, and her command of the medicine in every one of her cases, regardless of whether it is a substantial, complex medical malpractice case or a straightforward automobile collision case.
Jackie is a magna cum laude graduate of St. Anselm College, where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing in 1988. She obtained her license as a Registered Nurse that same year and proceeded directly to the Columbus School of Law, Catholic University of America, graduating in 1991.
After graduation, Jackie worked as an associate with Thompson Coburn LLP, Washington, DC, and Lamb & Barnosky, LLP, Melville, New York. While with these firms, she represented corporate clients in transactional and regulatory matters for more than ten years.
With a goal to ultimately combine her medical knowledge and legal expertise, Jackie temporarily left the practice of law and returned to nursing to strengthen her clinical skills. She worked as a Registered Nurse at a Northern Virginia hospital for several years. In 2005, Jackie then chose to join Regan Zambri Long PLLC as an injury lawyer in order to combine her many years of nursing and legal education and experience.
While Jackie’s primary practice involves medical malpractice claims, she litigates all kinds of injury claims. She fights to ensure that victims of negligence receive fair and just recompense for their injuries, particularly when those injuries are life-altering. Her work has resulted in multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for injury victims.
Jackie was born in Manchester, New Hampshire and now lives in Northern Virginia with her family.
Jackie has obtained significant verdicts and settlements; including a $8 million settlement for a woman who suffered quadriplegia as a result of a medical error; a $2.5 million settlement for an infant who suffered severe brain injuries during birth; and a $1 million settlement for a man who was permanently injured during a physical therapy session.
