My divorce had potential to be very contentious. Forrest gave me advice on how to present documents and new information to my now ex husband to keep our divorce progressing smoothly. What I was pretty sure was going to be a drawn out battle ended up being pretty uneventful, and I credit Forrest's counsel.
I needed a strong, knowledgeable advocate who could stay focused on the facts, inform me of the things that mattered, and challenge me to ensure I was seeking the right form of representation for my needs as a parent and business owner who was undergoing a highly volatile divorce. Forrest was just that for me and much more. Always calm, organized and meticulous in detail, yet warm, ethical, and caring, he offered much more than legal representation: He gave me hope. His concern extends not only to you as a client, but your family as well who are all affected by divorce. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of his services.
Forrest was incredibly knowledgeable, trustworthy and helpful to navigate the rather emotional and complicated process of divorce with ease. He was very responsive to all my questions and concerns and always took the time to help me better understand the impacts of decisions both short and long-term. Furthermore, he was proactive in identifying the best approach or alternative that would be equitable for both sides. Forrest was highly professional, reliable, respectful and responsive with all communications. Above all else, I felt that he genuinely cared and had my best interest as his top priority.
I would highly recommend Forest Collins for his services and would feel confident that he would find the best possible outcome for clients.
Forest was very responsive and knowledge when it came to helping us through this process. He made suggestions where we needed some ideas of how to word it and was very prompt on drafts and communication. If you want to do a moderated divorce I would highly recommend him.
Divorce is always difficult, but Forrest made it smooth, predictable, and on track. His easy -going style helped us to get through it faster.
Mr. Collins and his staff were very professional, communicated clearly and promptly on all issues. This was what I had expected to be an impossible dissolutionment to achieve, with a volatile partner, through mediation, but it worked. I attribute the success to Mr. Collins' calm, objective, direct approach. He explained every step of the process and all alternatives. It was affordable and I believe we achieved the best possible outcomes.
Forest and his staff were extremely professional, courteous and responsive.
He mediated my divorce and helped sort out the 24 years worth of assets and really focused on our desired outcome of being fair.
I had a very good experience with Forrest. He was a good listener and respectful of my wishes while making it clear what was best for me.
The story I will always tell regarding my experience with Forrest was how he helped me to see the significance and crucial reality that I needed to consider not only the short term outcome of my divorce settlement, but also the long term goals for my children. His advice and expertise were essential to my financial and emotional well-being. I refer clients and friends to Forrest because I believe he is a good guy with solid advice and is able to get his clients to their goal.
Forrest is down to earth and very approachable. From the first meeting with him I knew that we could work together. Backing up Forrest is the super team of Annie and Noah, both highly professional, they provided me with timely e-mails and support in my questions. Forrest gave me honest and accurate advice on all aspects of negotiating my divorce. I credit his calm and methodical approach to a mediated divorce that reduced my anxiety level to somewhat manageable levels. Forrest is articulate, does not back down and had my interests fairly and squarely in his sights. I credit him for an excellent judgement that covered all bases and made it very workable for me. This is an attorney who works for his clients without any extraneous charges and deviations from the task in hand.
