My time shared with Mr. Collins was enjoyable other than the reason for being in his company. I felt at ease and comfortable to speak my mind in his office that has an amazing view. Forrest always greeted with a positive attitude as well as keeping my comfort in mind. Mr. Collins is very professional as a mediator keeping an objective view and stance while working our case. Forrest was able to put ideas and options on the table that was not previously thought of by me which created options to benefit both parties. Doing so allowed dissection making easier. Any legal advice that was mutually advisable as a mediator was given without me needing to ask. Overall I would recommend Mr. Collins as a mediator, and wish him and his family the best of luck.

I started working with Forrest one year ago and settled out of court last week. This was a very high conflict situation with a parenting plan that needed a complete overhaul.
He struck a good balance between giving me strong advice and advocating for me, and letting me also make decisions on my own. He always gave me options and was clear on the cost (financial) and amount of time I should expect each step to take.
And the outcome was amazing, I went from very little time with my child to now having her live with me part time and also have significant time to go on vacations and holidays with her. It's hard to believe we landed on a plan this good.
Having gone through this process I'm grateful for someone who knows how to advocate for me as a father as he was very knowledgeable about my rights, when to push, when to pull back, and how to get through a settlement without the extra costs and stress of going to court.
Overall I'd highly recommend Forrest and I will use his services again if needed.

Its never a good thing when you have to seek out a divorce Mediator, but I'm so happy I found Forrest. He walked us through what to expect, provided very helpful information, gave us our space as we sorted the details out, and was extremely professional throughout the whole process. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is seeking this type of help.

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.

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.

He mediated my divorce and helped sort out the 24 years worth of assets and really focused on our desired outcome of being fair.
