Make it count
I am not Mr. Cherry nor am I a friend or family member, I assure you of that. I am however a client since 2005 when my wife was is a car accident on Thomasville Road. We met with several attorney's. One of them was very dismissive of my wife's injuries. Another one was very clear he would not put this before a jury when we met with Collin he was very prepared to take our case all the way to a jury. He told us that he wins his cases by through and prepared and prepared he was. Dr. Rumana did do surgery on my wife. In closing you only get one day in court. MAKE IT COUNT!!!!!!

Excellent and kind hearted professionals!
Arthur Collin Cherry and his staff are professional, trustworthy, knowledgeable and very responsive to their clients needs and cases. No matter how often I've called with questions or concerns they have ALWAYS been kind, helpful and answered the phone with a smile, never rude or disrespectful in any way. They also impress because they remember you by name which means you are not just another number. I would recommend this practice to everyone simply because of the care that they give to their clients.

Colleague
I am a lawyer in Tallahassee, Florida, who frequently needs to co-counsel with other lawyers or refer our clients when I have a conflict of interest. I think Collin Cherry is one of the best lawyers in town, not only because of his wide knowledge base, but mostly because he cares passionately about his clients and about justice. He fights battles other attorneys fear, and he gets excellent results for his clients. Every client I have ever referred to him has been very happy with his service. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking top quality counsel.

Amazing Lawyer
Collin is not only an amazing lawyer but a great man. I was blessed to have him as my lawyer in my case. He is very dedicated, hard working, and trustworthy. He would always keep me updated on what was happening in my case and the steps or process that was going to happen next. He is very professional and showed complete devotion in my case. Collin also truly cares about his clients that he represents. He is the reason that my case was won. Thanks to his knowledge, skills, devotion, and time. I always felt that he is there for me and I can never thank him enough.

Incredible attorney. He took on the insurance company and saved me when I was injured in a car wreck. I received a $350,000 settlement on a $25,000 insurance policy because of insurance company bad faith. Thank you Mr. Cherry!
