I have worked with Donnell to resolve several W.C. claims and he has always shown an experienced and measured approach to resolving not only the immediate claim but also on-going issues with current employee/claimants. He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk with about the company's concerns.

In my years of knowing Mr. Collins, his professionalism has always exceeded my expectations. His aggressive nature in defending several Worker's Compensation cases with my (former) company has resulted in a number of favorable rulings on behalf of multiple clients. In short, Mr. Collins is one of the best defense attorneys I've been privileged enough to work with.

Mr. Collins recently represented my son in legal matters that were pending in the Superior Court of Bulloch County. Despite my obvious anxiousness and uneasiness, he was professional and amazingly courteous throughout the ordeal, and provided excellent legal counsel. In fact, he obtained an unimaginable result and provided his services pro bono! My family and I are most grateful and simply wish to acknowledge the blessing of a very thoughtful attorney.

I endorse this lawyer. Donnell Collins is well-known as a superb litigator, particularly in the worker's compensation area. My endorsement extends beyond that specialty area, however; as my observation of Mr. Collins is that he is the consummate legal professional. Aside from his expertise, he has the intellectual tools, and social skills, to tackle successfully any legal or business matter that comes his way.
