John worked work hard and long to help me with a criminal case. He as able to get a felony reduced to a misdemeanor. He cautioned me this is not always possible. While he was concerned about my case he was also very concerned about my life and helping me obtain sobriety.
I am thankful for his sincerity and honesty. His fee was extremely fair.
My husband and I retained John to represent our 18 year old daughter who is an addict. Her case was not only criminal, but very complex in that we wanted her to get the help she needed. John worked diligently on her case and made himself available to us at all times. When the legal system wanted to 'punish' her, John seen her mental and physical needs and fought long and hard to get her the help she needed. Our little girl is now in a long term rehabilitation facility, which was our ultimate goal. My family will be forever grateful for the kindness, professionalism, and compassion he has given our case.
John is an amazing attorney, extremely informative, knowledgeable, and most important very responsive. I am in the state of California and was very concerned about commuication and being able to trust someone with our case... Glad to have found John. Not once have I meet him in person but I can assure you I feel I know him extremely well. I know hes not just an amazing attorney but actually cares for his clients and their future. He understands its not just a case but someones life, family, future, etc. His amazing effort / work will allow my family to reunite in a couple years as opposed to 35 - life. Highly recommend John C Collins.
I called four attorneys and hired one before I was referred to John Collins by a court clerk. It was very impressive that the court clerk made the referral. Afterall, she saw many attorneys and numerous cases like mine and she believed John Collins was the best attorney for the job. She spoke very highly of John and I'm so glad I listened! John is an excellent and gifted attorney. He has a special talent, along with non-stop drive and dedication. He keeps you informed and I assure you, works diligently to win the case. John has the wisdom through years of experience and is up to date on current issues that will help fight the tough battle and win your case.
As my attorney, he was able to beat a DUI case. The case was dismissed.
In 2009, John handled my AMW high profile case. And even though, I was out of state, he stayed up-to-date and kept me informed about my case, he promptly returned phone calls, he patiently answered my questions and his fee was more than fair. Out of the 5 attorneys I've hired, John Collins is the only one I would reccommend.
