About Greg

Learn Greg’s areas of practice.

I know how it feels to be in debt.  The stress can be overwhelming.  Usually, something happens to finally allow you to take action.  Filing for bankruptcy relief is not intended to be the end of the world.  In fact, it can be a path to a new beginning.  The bankruptcy laws were set up to help those in dire financial straits to get life back to normal.


I worked inside the bankruptcy system for many years.  I worked with the Bankruptcy Judge and later for Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 Trustees.  Now I use that experience to help guide people through the bankruptcy process.  I practice almost exclusively Bankruptcy Law, and my goal is to provide a high level of expertise and service that makes each client want to refer others to me who need my help.

Above & beyond
Consultation: william was on time & spent a considerable amount of his precious time explaining the Pros & Cons of the dufferent types of debt resolution depending on situations. I did not feel pressured at all and it gave me the right insight to make my decision to file Chapter 7 Bankruptcy. Promptness: William was as prompt as it could be in order to clarify any confusion due to me not understanding what to do from bankruptcy courses to paperwork filling. I received answers/replies within hours to 1 business days. Process: Smooth as butter. He made a painful experience absolutely pain. Representation: I believe that I was represented by Greg and all went well to make the painful experience easier to go through. Cost and fees: Straightforward, affordable and convenience and flexibility. No add-ons. Customer service: Even after I got discharged, William was there to answer any questions I had. Overall: If i could provide 6 stars out of 5, I would. Will definitely recommend him. I already did so and shared his info on the bankruptcy group I used. Note: if you want to take it easy on yourself, choose William and Greg then sit back and relax and the rest will just be a matter of time. Thanks again to Collins and Arnove. Mamadou

Exceptional Representation
Greg was absolutely phenomenal during the handling of my case. I initially filed with another firm and after nearly 18 months I was unable to confirm my case. I meet with Greg and explained everything during my initial consultation. Not only did he take my case but he filed everything expeditiously and was able to get my case confirmed with the trustee within a matter of months. I'm sure there are other great bankruptcy firms in North Texas but you couldn't ask for a more knowledgeable and customer focused attorney than Gregg with Collins & Arnove.

The BEST ADVOCATE you could have!
FIVE STARS PLUS! Bankruptcy is not an easy decision to make, nor is it easy navigating the legal process. However, having William and Christine guiding me through an otherwise scary process was smooth and stress free. Both, very personable and empathetic, they are quick to answer any and all questions expeditiously. William’s knowledge of bankruptcy law and the intricacies that come along with it, is impressive. He is open and honest and lays it all out there; good, bad and ugly. He is a true advocate and having him by my side at the hearing was both reassuring and comforting. If you must go through this process, you want him on your team. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Smooth Process
Mr. Collins made the bankruptcy process easier than I could imagine. There were certain debts which I was positive could not be discharged, merely because they were not considered credit cards or loans. However, he explained to me that even other debt matters, such as an overdue rental balance from an apartment, could be taken care of. The process itself was smooth. There were no stacks of paperwork to fill out, as compared to other attorneys I consulted with in the past. He was very clear and understanding. I recommend both Mr. Collins and Mr. Arnove.

He did a great job.
Mr. Collins was very knowledgeable and helpful throughout our bankruptcy process. He was personable and took the time to answer all questions and explain in detail where we had some confusion. He made the process smooth and his confidence in our court meeting was reassuring. His assistant Christine is very friendly and easy to work with during your payment process. I highly recommend Mr. Collins.

Made the process very easy
William Collins handled my Chapter 7 bankruptcy. I was able to make an appointment online. He started the case during that first appointment. I was able to set up a payment plan instead of paying the cost up front, which was very helpful. He informed me of all the next steps. I communicated mostly via email, and he replied promptly and answered any questions I had. Before the 341 meeting, he arrived early and walked me through the process and every question I would be asked. Overall, I had a great experience and he made the process very easy for me. A previous attorney had wanted more money and not offered a payment plan. I was very happy to find Collins & Arnove and was happy I went with them.

I found both William and Greg to communicate well and keep me up to date throughout my case. I had a couple specific legal challenges and Greg was able to confidently provide me an answer and then handle my case very efficiently. I would highly recommend William Collins or Greg Arnove

Bankruptcy attorney Firm in Plano
From the time I first met William I felt completely comfortable and at ease, before filling bankrupsy and talking to William I felt very stressed about the whole process, I felt like a failure not being able to keep track of my finances . After my Initial communication with Collins & Arnove I felt great about my decision and knew that to move on with my life this was the best outcome. They are great bankrupsy attorneys and I would recommend them to anyone looking for a competent attorney firm to handle there case from start to completion and getting there bankrupsy discharged.

Great Experience!!! Highly recommended.
I would highly recommend William Collins as an attorney in his field. He was able to clearly explain the steps needed to meet my goals and executed quickly. He followed through with everything and continued to support me almost a year after my case was resolved. Again, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

As a client, I cannot say enough wonderful things about Greg Arnove! I was actually referred to him by a dear friend and colleague at work, who used Greg to represent her and her husband for their filing. She knew I was having difficultly getting my "highly advertised" and "already paid for" attorney to respond, and recommended that I call Greg. I ended up hiring Greg to clean up after the other guy, who treated me like a number. Greg was ALWAYS available to answer my questions and executed everything seamlessly! I SO wish I'd hired Greg from the very beginning and I wouldn't have had to experience even greater stress on top of what was already an incredibly stressful life event. Greg provided me with unbelievable peace of mind and operated with a quiet confidence. He knows his stuff! If you or anyone you know or care about is considering bankruptcy, I HIGHLY recommend you use Greg Arnove...a "real" bankruptcy attorney!

Great guy, very knowledgeable
Greg used to work for the local Chapter 13 trustees, so he REALLY knows his stuff. Plus, he's a very nice, honest guy, practical, and not pompous. You will feel at ease with him. You can trust him. I thought he was great.

Used before...
I used Mr. Arnove several months ago. He was referred by an attorney who said this case was too tough for him. He was extremely helpful and talked me through the process. I recommend him to anyone who needs his services.

I needed some questions asked and he did. It was over the phone and he explained exactly what I needed. Thanks
