After using a previous attorney who made me feel uncomfortable and deceived, I was hesitant to use another attorney. A friend referred me to Sean and I felt comfortable right away. He was very honest and knowledgeable and I knew I could trust him. I hired Sean to maintain and enforce my parenting plan. He always responds promptly to questions and concerns. We have taken my ex to court on two occasions and the judge ruled in my favor both times. Sean has gone above and beyond my expectations and I will continue to use him.
I wish I hired Mr Collin at the very beginning of my case. I changed attorneys after 5-6 months of wasting time and money for another attorney to enjoy vacationing while I was getting eaten alive from my ex attorney. Once Mr Collin took over, things changed. He responded to my concerns and issues immediately. He was up against an nasty, aggressive follow attorney and a professional but firm judge. He handled himself at trial like a true professional. We won our case; now my family and live is now back to normal thanks to him..
Sean Collin (Lyons, Snyder & Collin) represented me in my divorce over the last year (2011-2012). The judge was tough and very aggressive, but Sean never flinched - not for a second. Impressive. He is experienced, capable and calm under fire. Very professional. Even when moments became hot and intense, Sean remained unflustered, working details and financial math without any detectable nervousness or hesitation. He is as good with numbers as any forensic financial analyst that I have seen. I gained an entirely new respect for attorneys because of him, and I have worked with many fine lawyers over the last thirty years, although always in business...this was the first time I engaged counsel for myself. Top-flight attorneys like Sean Collin are often very, very expensive. We pay for talent and success, of course. Even so, I found Sean to be reasonable and fair for what I asked of him; I never felt gouged or "nickeled and dimed" to death. He lives and works in Miami, but I brought him to Orlando for my case...I never once regretted the expense, which was extremely fair. Sean Collin treated me with kindness, courtesy, and manly decency...and he was always, always frankly honest. His advice was sound. When the Orlando divorce court judge asked me why I went all the way to Miami for my counsel, I told him straight up that I wanted the best. I was not disappointed. If Sean Collin accepts you as a client, consider yourself very fortunate indeed. (It is noteworthy that recent peer industry reviews and accolades support my experience and comments.)
