Review Parrish Collins

About Me

Albuquerque attorney, Parrish Collins, has been practicing law since 1989 following graduation from Duke University School of Law.   Parrish handles focuses primarily on cases involving serious personal injuries and wrongful death.  He also handles criminal and DWI defense matters.


Parrish represents personal injury and wrongful death clients and their families throughout New Mexico.  His criminal and DWI defense practice is limited primarily to Albuquerque and the surrounding counties.


Parrish‘s New Mexico personal injury and accident cases run the spectrum from automobile accidents, truck accidents, medical malpractice,  slip & fall accidents, premises liability, nursing home neglect & abuse and wrongful death.


Parrish feels fortunate to to represent clients with their personal injury and criminal/DWI matters. Our clients, whether criminal defendants, or the victims and families of those suffering personal injury or wrongful death, are typically facing the hardest of times when they come to our firm.  We are grateful for the trust that our clients place in us.


It is privilege to serve our clients who often find the odds stacked against them either by the often oppressive tactics of insurance companies or the vast resources of the State.   Parrish, and all of the attorneys and staff at Collins & Collins, P.C.  do their best to help them through these difficult times and most of all to insure that they are treated fairly from beginning to end by the other side.
