THE MASTER
They say miracles happen, and Mr Kevin Collins made them come true with his outstanding vast knowledge and his REMARKABLE REPUTATION AT MANY COURTS. I was in a situation where no one wanted to take my case or even tried to listen, let along the emotional support. Miraculously Kevin Collins was an angel sent from heaven. My story started when my Crazy EX went off the deep end after I ended the relationship, she used all evil ways and lies simply to see me in jail. She first started with an emergency restraining order and Mr Collins got it dismissed. Right after leaving the court house my ex starts to threthen and harass me and Mr Collins had a harassment order granted on her for ONE YEAR AND TO BE EXTENDED! She then files for Larceny over 1200 (that’s a automatic felony and reason why she filed for it is to have me deported because of my pending immigration status) again Mr Collins got it dismissed, it didn’t stop at that! She went right after the court hearing and filed for Larcent under 1200! The case went to the DA and the state of Massachusetts now still a larceny under but its a minor offense that would hurt my immigration status BADLY even if it’s dismissed and I still could be facing deportation if it enters the record. Thank The Lord I was blessed with Kevin he had the case just simply dismissed but DISMISSED PRIOR TO ARRAIGMENT! I couldn’t ask or expect more! Now I would say pheeeew it’s over! But no! She filed for 2 more restraining orders and Ofcourse when you have a Genius attorney like Kevin Collins you can just have faith and relax (both were dismissed). SIX accusations and the outcomes were ABSOLUTELY IMMACULATE! His sympathy and professionalism makes you feel that you’re working with a family member. I wish I could give more than a five star review.

What a talented and compasionate lawyer
Kevin helped me out of a difficult situation after a lifetime (56yrs) with a clean record an unexpected situation left me facing criminal charges and terrified. He was so helpful, walked me through every step and represented me. Thanks to his expertise, advocation and professionalism I now am in the process of settling this without blemishing my previously clean record. This is something I never could have done without him and am Greatly Appreciative and feel that the beyond reasonable price for his services was money well spent.

The consummate lawyer
Attorney Collins is the consummate lawyer. The mark of an excellent lawyer is one that does not boast about his accolades on his website. He is very low key in that sense, but delivers powerful results in the courtroom. Couple that with very reasonable fees and you have a remarkable attorney that any defendant wishes for. I was very pleased with Attorney Collins representation in a criminal matter. Against all odds, I got the results that I was looking for. His knowledge of the law, courtroom experience, meticulous preparation, and passion for justice inspire confidence and trust. Look no further!

Highly Recommend
I highly recommended the Law Office of Kevin R. Collins. Kevin is the utmost professional. He promptly came to my side, applied his experience and knowledge to help me with my case. I don’t know where I’d be without his expert guidance and counsel. I would hire again and have no hesitation recommending to anyone else.

Fantastic Attorney
Fantastic attorney. Responsive, professional, and respectful. Boy does he know his stuff. I hired Mr. Collins after I was arrested for an OUI. Mr. Collins called me back immediately to discuss my case and really listened to me. He made sure I understood the entire process and answered all of my questions along the way. Felt like I had a partner I could trust every step of the way from arraignment through trial. He was extremely well organized and his trial experience showed. I was very satisfied with the results and would highly recommend Attorney Collins to anyone looking for a OUI defense lawyer.

A Never-Regretted Decison
Kevin is an absolutely outstanding lawyer in town. Thanks to his right guidance, I am not only a jail/probation-free person, but also I walked outta Waltham district court with dignity. He also helped me to file motion to travel so I had chance to see my grandfather before he passed away. Everyone has his/her emotional moment, Kevin is the one there to interpret to the court and the judge whether this action has crossed the line for crime or not. I am very satisfied with Kevin's professional opinions and also the outcome of my case.
