My attorney took over my case after another lawyer would not keep me well informed or respond to matters concerning my case. Mr. Collins would respond as soon as he had any new information to offer--or he would answer e-mails or questions at any time. I felt like he had a good short- and long-term strategy for how best to handle my case, and he shared this information candidly with me. I always felt like it was the other attorney who held things up--never Mr. Collins.

He respected attorney-client privilege 100 percent. As he referred to other, similar cases to mine, he would never use names or identifying information. I know if he refers to my case, he will do the same. He was always ethical in his suggestions in how he (we) should proceed with a certain motion or idea to move the case forward.

Mr. Collins is kind, sympathetic, and at all times professional. Even though he's handled many cases similar to mine, he never made it sound routine. He spends the time with his client discussing ways to reach the shared goal, never to overly engage in small talk or make the client wait. He never arrived at a meeting with me unready to dive in and get the work done.

Mr. Collins did all the work in my case. Only when it was necessary did he ask me to find a document or do anything other than meet and talk with him. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Mr. Collins as an excellent, ethical, and professional attorney.
