Outstanding and very professional
Never personally hired dan but consulted with him on certain advise. Had several conversations over the phone and in person, He never once ignored my phone calls or failed to return a call. Very informative and knowlagable and will take the time to make sure you fully understand the situation. I have unfortunately had to deal with several lawyers in my past and regret not having found dan sooner! I have my lawyer for life now!

excellent lawyer, highly recommended for any and all questions or his services!!
This man has went above and beyond my expectations , 10 pm he offers to clear up all my questions in a matter of minutes just by me calling. He explained everything in detail and in a way I could understand easily. He offered way more than one quick answer, he explained all options and scenerios. He even said if I had any other questions to just keep his number and give a call. My husband also is needing advice and has questions and he extended the same offer. Very positive experience and will continue to deal with him in the future, very impressive.

Mr. Collins is an extraordinary attorney. He went above and beyond to help me with my case. He returned calls promptly and answered questions about the law in a way that was easy to understand. As he walked me through the court process, he always appeared confident and well prepared in the courtroom, looking out for MY best interest. He defiantly showed that he has experience, knowledge, and was dedicated to high standards.

"I strongly endorse Dan Collins. He accomplishes results where others may fail. I've been an attorney for over 20 years and I first met Dan in the 1990's when I was a felony prosecutor for Kane County State's Attorney's Office. Dan was defending a client on a felony case- and I was impressed with how Dan handled himself. He was more knowledgeable than other criminal defense attorneys, and he was extremely professional. You know what? His client's position dramatically improved because of Dan's legal acumen and ability. This attorney is one of a kind: he always puts his clients first and works tirelessly- and it shows. Dan has the knowledge, skill, and ability to navigate the court system. Simply put: Dan wins. I do not give this endorsement lightly. I have known this attorney for years, I trust Dan, and I strongly recommend him."
