I am so grateful to Forrest for how hard he worked for me and for his constant support. He was always prepared and ready to help. Forrest has a very friendly demeanor and was 100% trustworthy. I knew he was always doing his best for me.

Forrest was very helpful and professional in handling my divorce case. His focus was always on negotiation and avoiding unnecessary court expenses. I am satisfied with the outcome of the case.

Forrest Collins is a highly professional, knowledgably and caring attorney. Having been through the divorce process in the past, I wanted a mediating attorney who would keep our case out of court and be willing to work with our budget. Mr. Collins is straight forward and very responsive to questions and concerns. Additionally, he is genuine (something that is refreshingly rare in the legal world) and I know from experience that he believes in helping people work through a difficult time in a fair and equitable manner. Above all, he is an excellent mediator, knows the court systems, communicates very well and is very kind. Finally, his support team is also very caring and professional. They create and maintain a calm and welcoming environment, and are also very responsive to questions and concerns.
If you find yourself deciding on divorce or have other court related issues that require mediation or a good stand-alone attorney, I urge you to contact Forrest Collins.

Forrest put me at ease immediately with his level of knowledge and his respectful demeanor. He clearly is very skilled at helping people move forward in what is one of the most stressful times in your life. He followed up with everything he said he would do and was available and prompt when we had questions. I've worked with several attorneys in other areas of specialty and Forrest was the best I've dealt with. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering mediation.

I am a thirty-year-old woman, and I was very nervous about finding a lawyer for my divorce. I was afraid of it costing to much or winding up with a lawyer I didn't like. When I called Forrest, a very nice receptionist picked up right away and listened to me ramble on and on about my divorce. She was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I knew that was a good sign. Forrest called me back within the hour, to answer all my questions. That is one of my favorite things about working with him. Over the course of my divorce, he always got back to me right away. I never had to call twice or wait around. Another reason I recommend him is that he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. When I didn't understand something, he was happy to explain it again and again, with out making me feel stupid. I always felt like we were a team, and that I could contact him whenever I needed him. He definitely also made me feel like I was his only client, I hear that is not very common.
The other reason I recommend him is because he has a wonderful team he works with. Annie and Noah are an absolute delight. I am a small business owner myself, and I know that you can always judge a business by the quality of their employees. Good people are hard to find and even harder to keep. When you have wonderful and supportive staff working for you, it says a lot about your character as well. They made me feel like family, and they were always happy to see me. They even encouraged me to stop by and say hi from time to time.
So, I just had to come on here and review him because I just can't say enough about how great it was to work for him. Going threw a divorce is one of the worst things that can happen to you, so I want everyone to be able to have a good experience like mine.

Forrest handled all aspects of my collaborative divorce in 2012. I have never dealt with an attorney in my life and never wanted to because of the reputation of the profession. After four months of trying to handle the divorce without an attorney, I decided it was in my best interest to take the risk and hire one. I researched my options extensively, interviewed my top choices and finally decided to hire Forrest. It was an easy choice, and ultimately, an excellent choice.
The following is a short list of my experience with Forrest.
1. The divorce process went much faster and smoothly than expected.
2. He was a very down to earth and a very easy person to work with. He was very relaxed, friendly and approachable.
3. Forrest was very knowledgeable and had most of the answers that I needed, but not all of them. For those, he was able to get the answers to me very quickly.
4. All of his recommendations and advice were very helpful. He identified several important issues that I had overlooked. In addition, his advise in working with my wife in the process was very effective.
5. Since this was a collaborative divorce, I wanted the final judgement to be very fairly split between my wife and me. He did an excellent job with that.
6. The cost of his services was very fair and affordable.
7. He was very easy to reach. He responded very quickly to phone messages and emails.
8. The draft documents contained some clerical errors that took a few rounds to get fixed, but the final documents were complete, comprehensive, and ready on time.
I am extremely pleased with my experiences with Forrest and strongly recommend him.

Forrest was always prepared. He gave me multiple options throughout the process. For each option he included pros and cons and answered all questions completely. He was objective and focused on my goals. He also maintained a positive attitude which was helpful during an acrimonious divorce. We won our case which is the most important aspect.
