Colin Cook represented me on a misdemeanor criminal defense case. Colin helped me through the process of dismissal and was very reassuring along the way. He genuinely had my best interest in mind and explored all of his options to get my case dismissed. Colin was very diligent in contacting me through email and phone, and I would recommend him to anyone in need of a criminal defense lawyer. I am very thankful I chose Colin Cook to represent me in my case.

Collin is an outstanding lawyer. My son, a college student, was charged with a felony that did not pass the sniff test. I live 1000 miles away from my son's University and did not know any lawyers in the area. Collin was thorough and professional as he stated the charges, possibilities and course of action he would take. In less than 4 days after retaining Collin he had the case dismissed and assisted my son in having the case also thrown out with University conduct. What a relief from 2 concerned parents who felt helpless. Collin never made a promise he couldn't keep but the outcome was spectacular. My wife and I fully endorse and highly recommend Collin and his team to represent any person. Thank you Collin and team.

Collin exceeded all of my expectations for an attorney. This was the first time I was ever charged for a crime. throughout the whole process, Collin was very reassuring that he would get the best possible outcome for my situation. He was very personable with me, and I could tell he was looking out for my best interest. He did a great job of letting me know things I could do to improve the outcome for my case.

Collin Cook represented me in a case where I was accused of purposefully writing a check off of my business account to purchase a computer. A handyman stole my business checks and I had no idea that the check wouldn't clear. Regardless, the authorized Apple Retailer (Ten Plus) tried to sell me a computer that they destroyed by taking the Lion OS to a Leopard OS. I returned the computer per the police officer's instruction. Then I was arrested! Collin promised me that this was not a "strict liability" crime and that the state of NC would have to prove I intentionally wrote a "bad check" with the goal of depriving Ten Plus Computers of a computer. Collin promised me I would not be arrested and the case would go away. He charged $2000 and then forced me to re-purchase the broken computer! I am 78 years old and have never been arrested. Collin treated me with such disrespect and hatred that I know am scared almost every day. Collin did not represent me. He literally threw me under the proverbial bus. He was not honest with me. He refused to put anything in writing and he refused to meet personally with me.

Using his vast courtroom experience, Collin Cook had our case continued until we were in front of a Judge who is a strong believer in one's constitutional rights. Although I had been pulled-over leaving a tire store parking lot at 1:30 am, he did an excellent job painting a picture in everyone's mind that there was no probable cause for me to be stopped by the police. As a result, the Judge ruled all evidence gathered, after I was stopped by the police, to be suppressed. Acquitted!
Throughout our case, Collin Cook was friendly, responsive, and behaved as a gentleman.

Collin Cook has represented me more than once. He is a capable and excellent attorney who I would recommend to anyone. I would never trust anyone else with my sensitive legal issues. In fact, when I need legal assistance I contact him even if it's just for a referral. He is diligent, knowledgeable, and trustworthy. No one else can take care of your legal issues like Collin Cook! You have to trust your attorney and you can trust Collin Cook.
