She is an OSBA-Certified Specialist in Labor and Employment law. In her spare time, she is leading the next generation of volunteers through her service.

She’s also an officer and member of the Summit County Volunteer Leadership Council for the American Cancer Society. In 2010, Kolligian and her husband cofounded an annual charity corn hole tournament that benefits special needs children, now raising over $10,000 each year for summer camp scholarships. Kolligian and her husband received the Akron Area YMCA Volunteer of the Year Award, in honor of their fundraising efforts.
“I feel truly humbled to be recognized for serving a community that has given me so much more than I could ever hope to return to it,” Kolligian said. “My firm has always been 100 percent supportive of the causes that are near and dear to my heart. It has been my privilege to serve the Greater Akron Community, and I have no plans to slow down anytime soon.”
