About Collin

Learn Collin’s areas of practice.

Collin Evans was born and raised in Texas. He attended The University of Texas where he received his Bachelor of Science degree from the Red McCombs School of Business. After graduating, Collin worked in the Intellectual Property division at Fulbright & Jaworski assisting with patent prosecution. Before entering into law school, Collin trained in Muay Thai, Krav Maga, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu which instilled a sense of discipline and strong work ethic that he has carried over into his law practice. He then went on to earn his Juris Doctorate from South Texas College of Law.
 
In law school, Collin traveled as an advocate with Mock Trial teams for one of only three schools in the nation consistently ranked in the top 10 for trial advocacy. He also clerked for Justice Terry Jennings at the First Court of Appeals and at the criminal defense law firm of Stradley, Chernoff & Alford for two years. After law school, the criminal defense firm hired Collin as their associate attorney. After the senior lawyers ended their partnership, Collin decided to open his own law firm.
 
Since starting his own criminal defense firm, Collin has used his extensive training to help clients through the reality of the criminal justice system, the pitfalls to avoid, and how to navigate through what, for many, seems like uncharted waters. He is passionate about his clients’ cases and seeks to obtain a dismissal for every person that chooses him to represent them. With over a decade of experience, Collin knows what it takes to make charges go away and help people move on with their lives.
 
Collin has helped clients through difficult situations from initial investigations to high profile cases that garner intense media attention. As a member of the defense team that represented Dr. Conrad Murray in the involuntary manslaughter charge for the death of Michael Jackson, Collin experienced the intensity that the worldwide media can put on a highly publicized criminal defense case and knows how to handle these types of cases with professionalism and integrity. Other notable cases Collin assisted with include a client accused of hacking into a school district’s computer system, a client accused of shooting at police officers, a client charged with murdering his neighbor, and multiple clients accused of fighting with the police.
 
Collin continually works to be prepared for every client’s situation. He is an active member of The College of State Bar Texas, National College for DUI Defense, DUI Defense Lawyer’s Association, and multiple defense lawyer associations around the Houston area. He is certified as a Standardized Field Sobriety Test Practitioner. He has been recognized as a Texas Lawyer Rising Star for five straight years. He is Avvo rated at a 10.0 as “Superb.” He has been nominated as one of Houston’s Top Lawyers and has received the Avvo Client’s Choice Award every year since starting his own firm in 2013.
 
Collin has a proven record of fighting against the government by taking cases to trial. He also has a proven record of obtaining dismissals in a wide range of felony and misdemeanor cases, including DWI, possession of drugs, assault and theft charges.

DWI Case
Collin helped me with a first offense DWI. I was nervous and unsure of what would happen. Collin and his assistant Gina worked diligently to ensure I was defended appropriately and coached me through the process. Great Lawyer. Thank You Collin & Gina.
Response from Collin Evans July 29, 2021
Gina is a rock star at the office. I could not focus on client's needs like yours without her. Thank you for recognizes how much her hard work and dedication bring to our team.

Collin Evans was the right choice
I could not have made a better choice in hiring a lawyer. Collin is a consummate professional and takes pride in his work. He is very talented at what he does as well as ethical. From his knowledge of my case to what he remembered over the year we were fighting the erroneous charges, I was impressed all the way. He will tell you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. Other lawyers could take notes from him. If a friend or family member ever needs the services of a criminal defense lawyer I would recommend him in a heartbeat. You will never have to worry if you made the right decision with Collin Evans. 5 stars is not enough to rate him. 10 out of 10!

The Best attorney
I won’t go into the specifics of my case but I will say that Collin is the best attorney money can buy. He did way more than was asked or paid to do. A lot of research went into dealing with my case. I was facing prison time as I had dug myself into a hole I could not see a way out. Collin kept me out of that nightmare. This man has favor wherever he goes but more importantly this man cares about the well being of his clients which is not common in these times.

All you can ask for in a lawyer
I hired Mr. Evans for a felony drug charge last year, after following all of his counsel and advice over that time it was able to be dismissed completely. Couldn’t be happier

Reliable, Awesome Lawyer that Keeps you in the loop
Collin went out of his way to keep me in the loop with how all the court proceedings were developing. Never made me feel stupid for asking questions, and was available whenever I felt I had a question I had to ask. He's willing to work with you with payment. He'll let you split the payment into parts, which is nice. Highly recommended in my book.

No stress and great value
Smoothest experience with a law firm I have ever had. Collin is proactively communicative, responsive, and professional. I would highly recommend working with this law firm should you need to hire a legal advisor. I retained Collin for an expungement. In about an hour from the time I called, a contract was signed and we moved forward. Collin explained the process and laid out all of the expectations. Then he followed up with updates as the process unfolded. I never wondered where my case was or what was happening because I always received communication. Then when the case was over, I received all relevant documents by mail and an email update. Couldn't have been a better experience and I would highly recommend others hire him.

Amicable Criminal Lawyer
Collin Evans and his associates at his law firm are exceptional, he handled my criminal case that took place 20 + years ago ,helping me receive a non disclosure/ sealed record, that happened in Texas, but I live in another state now, and I was able to do everything from where I currently live. Mr. Evens is very personable, conveying, understanding, and amicable. I would definitely recommend him to anyone needing a criminal lawyer in the Harris county Texas area. Don’t hesitate to call him for a prompt consultation.

Collin Evans Does Great Work for YOU!
Mr. Evans handled two different criminal charges for my son. Both were handled respectfully and with great attention to details. The first ended with a deferred. The second was to get the first case that had been deferred, because of some circumstances that came to light, dismissed. Mr. Evans invested a lot of time working on this. He is very thorough. He won and my son’s case was dismissed. You can definitely count on Collin Evans to help you with your legal problem.

Expunctions
I have had the best experience with Collin Evans and his firm. Collin told me exactly what he was going to do and followed through with every single detail he spoke on. He answered the phone calls and emails when sent. He took care of my expunction cases leaving me no stress at all. If you are looking for an attorney who means what he says and treats you fair? You don't have to look any further. I promise this guy and his firm will take care of you!

Felony arrest
I was facing second degree felony charges for evading arrest. This was my second felony. I was looking at 2-20 years in TDC. I was guilty and was sure I was going back to prison. Colin was very informative through the whole pretrial process. The stress and pressure of facing a long prison sentence was weighing on me heavily. His confidence and calming demeanor put me at ease and helped me continue to live life and be successful at work and all areas of my life throughout the process. I trusted him with my case and began to feel at ease. I was offered probation that was far more than satisfactory after Mr. Evans filed a plethora of motions to strengthen my case. I would highly recommend Colin to anyone.
