Excellent service so far
I had contacted William Collin couple of months back to explain about my hardship situation and to get to know about the options I have. He explained me very well and made sure that I understood the whole process. He was answering all my questions via multiple calls/messages so patiently. He never missed calling me during appointments and he was on time all the times. I was able to file chapter 13 with his tremendous guidance last week and I'm sure he'll help me to get the less and very much reduced monthly payment under chapter 13. I would recommend everyone who's facing hardship situation to please work with William and he's the best based on my experience so far.

Yes would recommend William Collins law firm
Bankruptcy law is not my world. But when a person finds themselves in this world. It's best to have a subject matter expert. William Collins not only knows his way around this horribly complex world. He is extremely good at communicating the details of his plan for you. Trust me this is not a fill out a few forms business. BK filing plan is custom to your situation. Here William really excels to find what is best and specifically for your financial situation. After my consultation I felt this attorney had my best interests in mind. -Randy Oakes

Would gladly recommend!
I chose William Collins to represent me because he is on top of his trade and yet very approachable and down to earth. He explained the whole process in details. The consultation was done in person by him, and not his assistant, like it was in my previous experience. He also charges reasonably. During the process he was prompt to answer all of my questions, via email or in person. Would gladly recommend!

William took a realistic honest down to earth approach that was made seamless which I foresaw as being burdensome. He charged a fair price and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking bankruptcy. He was responsive and brought ease to the situation.

Poor communication. Nearly impossible to communicate with Very unresponsive.
William initially handled my case well but communication was always poor. I would ask a small list of questions and get a one word answer to one of my questions. Sometime reply would be in a day sometime a week . During a time filled with uncertainty communication is comforting. If you want bare bones representation with no communication then William Collins is your guy. Overall I felt very unvalued as a client, I guess there are always people filling BR so no need to serve them well.

Worst attorney period
We were already going through a very tough time and decided to file for chapter 13 bankruptcy. From the beginning Mr Collins was unprepared and misleading. With our lives in the balance there were multiple mistakes made by this lawyer. Time after time we received multiple letters stating that our bankruptcy was going to be terminated due to improper filings and mistakes. Year after year of our bankruptcy nothing changed more mistakes made and we were falling farther and farther behind because of all the mistakes made and information lost by this lawyer. Due to the mistakes made during and after the bankruptcy was finished there were still multiple debts unpaid and now with back charges and threat of foreclosure. I would highly discourage anyone from using this firm/ Mr Collins for any form of law consultation or action.. The entire process has put me and my family through unnecessary heart ache and anxiety. Please spread the word if you are thinking of going through bankruptcy look elsewhere. For the thousands of dollars spent up front and the seven thousand received for the what a thoughtless and horrifying experience we were put through. please do not choose this person to represent you. There are many other lawyers that can do the job correctly and be worth the thousands and thousands of dollars they make off the person they are suppose to be working for.

Response from William Collins November 13, 2018
Drive by scam review. Who are you if you are so disappointed? What improper filings -- what mistakes? Be specific. I don't charge "thousands" of dollars up front for a 13. I charge $500 -- so that tells you this is nonsense.
