Divorce/Time-Sharing
Susannah is kind, well-versed in the law, compassionate and energetic. She did a great job of explaining my options, LISTENING to my needs and representing my interests and the interests of my children. The timeliness of her communication was exceptional-rarely other than same day. She is thorough and detailed. The support staff is very professional. I know I was zealously represented and couldn’t have asked for better outcomes. I have recommended RobinsonCollins at least a dozen times and will always return for any future legal needs.

Mr.
Mrs. Collins was an absolute pleasure to work with and a consummate professional. She was timely with all aspects of my case; responsive to my court documents/petitions/questions; intelligent and extremely knowledgeable on all matters related to her specialty; and most importantly she was an advocate throughout the entire handling of my case and especially during court appearances. Even while I was out of the country, Mrs. Collins aggressively worked on my case and kept me informed of all related matters and outcomes.

Excellent Representation
Ms. Collins provided excellent counsel, advice and guidance throughout my entire process. She was responsive to my needs but was a great backstop in what always is a very difficult and stressful time. Her knowledge and experience were indispensable. Other than her professionalism and expertise, she is trustworthy.

Professional, highly effective, and compassionate
Working with Susannah Collins on my divorce was an entirely stream-lined and focused experience. Her comprehensive knowledge of Florida and nationwide statutes was impressive, as was her dedication to providing favorable results for her clients. Additionally, Susannah's philanthropic endeavors reflect a desire to support the lives within her sphere of influence. She is an asset to the community and a high recommended asset to anyone seeking legal representation.

...till the rest of my life I will thank God for her!
I met Susannah in most difficult time of my life, when I hide from my abusive and violent husband and no one want to represent me in court... I begged God to send me a lawyer! She chose to help me with my divorce case when I didn’t expect... Later on I learned that Ms. Collins is a passionate, a dedicated and a brilliant professional! I can’t thank her enough for all that she has done for me! Susannah Collins is truly the best attorney that I’ve ever could imagine!

The best peson I have ever met. Not only as a Laywer, but in heart and soul.
Susannah is the most dedicated, kind hearted, knowledgeable, strong, and beautiful person I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She not only cared about my case, but me and my Daughter as people, and believed in us. Not because she wanted anything from us, because she believed in what I was doing and that what I was doing was, without a doubt, the right thing. I have never met such an amazinglyly beautiful person, inside and out!
