Gratitude goes a long way
A special thank you to you for your time and assistance with our son. I know it’s your expertise, but it was our son’s life that was on the line. We felt you went above and beyond and we just wanted to express our gratitude. Never wavering and after the case was resolved you went even further to ask us to keep you “in the know” if something else arise. It’s rare these days to get this kind of service and we’ll never forget it. Thank you so very much and may God Bless You!

Best Decision to Hire Ben
Amazing. Ben is not only a phenomenal lawyer but an all around great guy. He genuinely would always listen and calm all my fears. His passion for helping others and knowledge of the law shines through. Hiring Ben was the best decision for my family and couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Highly Recommend !!
I hired Ben to represent me for a DUI I received in Williamson County, TN. Through his expertise guidance and diligent work, we were able to do the impossible and reduce my DUI to a reckless driving with probation only. He consistently updated me regarding my case and was always available to answer my questions. In the words of the judge himself, he is a "miracle worker". I would recommend him ten times over.

Hire Ben Powers, an attorney who actually cares!
When the dreadful day came that a family member required legal counsel, I was completely devastated. Fortunately, Attorney Ben Powers came highly recommended from a family friend. Unsure of the steps, I reached out to several attorneys, and Ben was the first to respond. Attorney Powers quickly answered and met my family in court within the hour. His legal advice was both comprehensive and empathetic. Ben broke down each count that my family member received and treated us with such respect. All of this, and we ended up not even needing his service! He could have easily taken advantage of our family's desperation, but he primarily spent hours serving us, without pay! I hope we will never need his service again, but if we do, his number is locked into our phones, and his well-mannered disposition is forever locked into our hearts! I HIGHLY recommend using Attorney Ben Powers!

Thank you, Ben!
I sought Ben's representation during a criminal investigation stemming from a dispute with a litigious business owner. I spoke with Ben about the situation and he really put my mind at ease. He explained to me exactly what we were facing, what the worst case scenario could be, and exactly what we would do if the worst were to happen. Ben handled all of the arrangements with the detective leading the investigation so that we could sit down and speak with him. Once it was apparent how aggressively the issue was being pursued, Ben intercepted the detective's advances and protected me and my rights. Ben got the investigation closed with a recommendation not to pursue prosecution and I never even had to speak with a police officer.

Really Great Lawyer!!
I am so glad that I found Ben. He patiently consulted with me several times before I hired him. He was kind and listened to my concerns and questions. He never made me feel stupid. He gave me every scenario and sound advice as we navigated through my case. In the end, I was very satisfied with the outcome. I would encourage my friends to hire Ben and I would absolutely hire him again.

Exceptional Representation
Ben is a very thorough and competent professional who always had our company's best interests in mind. I was always informed and I always felt like our company was in very good hands. He never missed a scheduled meeting and he always took my calls. What I especially liked about Ben was his ability to remain calm in throughout a strenuous negotiation period. I highly recommend Ben Powers.

Absolutely Amazing !!!!
I retained Mr. Powers after being sited for driving on a revoked license. Throughout the entire process, he kept my mind at ease by giving me encouraging words and answering any questions I had as they came up. He made me feel like I was his only client. I got a more than satisfactory outcome to my case and he will be my go to attorney from now on if the need should ever arise. Thanks, Ben !!!

Intelligent Strategy
After vetting out several top lawyers in the area I ultimately chose to go with Ben Powers III of the Collins Law Firm because he looked at my case from every perspective, helped me understand case law, was straightforward with contract, and payment made simple in an online system. The Collins Law Firm works on a "paperless" model which although communications over email cannot fall under privilege, it may offer discrete ones a way to handle legal trouble without receiving physical mail for every one to see. Under Ben Power's strategy and advice I received a favorable outcome far exceeding expectation. If I would give 10 stars I could. Thanks Ben Powers!

Commited
On first meeting Ben, his initial statement was "we will make your first court date your last", and was committed to just that. He not only fulfilled his statement but also went the extra mile.

The Absolute Best
I hired Ben to represent me in a time of need. He quickly put my mind at ease but was honest with me about any outcome that could possibly occur from worst case to best case scenario. It ended up being a best case scenario situation and Mr. Powers did everything he said and more. His entire team at The Collins Law firm was very helpful and knowledgeable. Ben is not only a great person but a wonderful attorney whom I would recommend to anyone I care for to help them get the best outcome in their own situation. Thank you Ben! I am forever grateful for you helping me
