Excellent
When I talked to this young man I knew from the start he was going to be my guy. He work hard and he made me feel better about getting me a lawyer like himself. Having a law degree myself I sat back and listen while he thought me about my unusual case. Well worth it

The Best!
Kevin Collins is without a doubt the best attorney to have on your side. His professionalism, knowledge, and reputation are second to none. Having Mr. Collins as my attorney saved my life. While facing several ridiculous felony charges which could have landed me in prison for the rest of my life, Mr. Collins and his team were able to get me a great outcome with no jail time. I'am not only blessed to have had Mr. Collins as my attorney, but also proud to now have him as my friend.

Best outcome possible
Kevin Collins is an absolute professional. He worked diligently and got me the best outcome possible in what was a very grim situation. He was always there when I needed him, just a phone call away. He was always straightforward and always kept me informed every step of the way. Mr. Collins knows exactly what he’s doing, his experience speaks for itself. If you’re on the fence or unsure don’t be pick him he’s worth it, after all was said and done I would choose him again to represent me.

Best lawyer on your side
Mr. Collins is a very experienced and exceptional fighter for his clients. Good kids sometimes make bad judgements at school, but with zero tolerance from school districts and statutory mandates to report so much to authorities, a teenager can easily end up facing potential legal consequences that can ruin their lives before it even starts over silly mistakes. We hired Mr. Collins and with his strong knowledge of juvenile cases on our side, we were not disappointed, he represented us, and the case was rejected, thank you Mr. Collins.

no drama excellence
My son was charged with a felony for having a pellet gun at school in his backpack. Mr. Collins was able to have the felony dismissed pre-trial, preventing my son from having a felony conviction for the rest of his life for what was essentially a stupid-teenager decision. Aside from the no-drama, efficient dismissal, I appreciated Mr. Collins’ firm but compassionate wake-up call to my son when he laid out the ramifications of what he had done and the consequences he could face. As a citizen, I appreciated Mr. Collins’ care in assessing that this was a stupid rather than malicious act. As his customer, I appreciated that when I first contacted him, he hiked up to the top of a hill to get good cell reception from a family vacation in order to communicate directly with me during my time of need. In all things, Kevin Collins strikes me as an ethical, intelligent, hardworking, well-connected and knowledgeable advocate, and I am very grateful for his work on behalf of our family.

Top Notch Attorney
I hired Kevin Collins to represent me for a difficult DWI case. Mr. Collins' knowledge of the law and the Bexar County court system proved to be invaluable. It took a couple of years, but in the end, my case was dismissed. I highly recommend Kevin Collins as a defense attorney.

Beat defense attorney
Mr Collins was very instrumental in getting me out of a complicated situation!! He and his staff worked very tirelessly and diligently to get my case DISMISSED and dismissed it was! I hope you never need him but if you find yourself in trouble with the law, this is THE attorney to have fighting for you. He explained everything he was doing and carried me along every step of the way. He is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. He put his heart and soul into working on my case and was always available to answer any question I had. His secretary was very pleasant and courteous and showed empathy during all my dealings with this firm. Don’t even think twice about it, get Mr Collins and you will be glad you did.

Inside sales representative
Mr. Collins did an amazing job as my lawyer. He is very experienced and treats the justice system as if it’s a chess match. He knows the right moves to make to ensure that justice is served, and to apply the accurate amount of pressure to the other team. You are in great shape if he is on your side.

Excellent DWI attorney
After being charged with a DWI I was referred to Mr Collins by a friend. After reviewing the case and video he presented me with the option of fighting it. After 14 months of deferrals we finally went to pretrial. The judge dismissed the case after Kevin's examination of the arresting officer. It was well worth the $$$$.

Excellent Attorney
I was charged with my 2nd DWI (ten years apart) and was referred to Mr. Collins by a friend who also hired him. Mr. Collins was very honest and upfront with what to expect at the initial consultation. I had refused the breathalyzer during my arrest and I was facing a lengthy license suspension but Mr. Collins was able to win the ALR hearing to prevent my license from getting suspended. This alone saved me a ton of problems and headaches. Since it was my 2nd DWI I had to install an Interlock device in my vehicle during the pre-trial process. I had a lockout one time after five months with the device. Once the pre-trial officer saw the lockout, he immediately notified the judge. Typically, a warrant is issued for your arrest but Mr. Collins was able to go down to the courthouse and talk to the judge and I was able to get off with a warning and no warrant issued. After reviewing all aspects of the case, Mr. Collins decided that our best course of action would be to try and plead it down to a DWI 1st offense. Given the evidence, I agreed. He was able to talk to the prosecutor to plead it down to a 1st offense. They proposed 18 months probation with an additional 9 months with an Interlock device and a DWI 1st with a BAC over 0.15. Even then Mr. Collins kept on fighting to get the best deal possible. He was able to lower the probation term down to 15 months, Interlock for 7 months, decreased my fines, and lowered the DWI with BAC over 0.15 down to simply a DWI 1st. Given the circumstances, I was pleased with the outcome. Mr. Collins is extremely good at what he does. You can tell when he walks into the courtroom that people respect him. It seems like a lot of people know him and go out of their way to say hi. He is courteous to the judge, other attorneys, prosecutors, and even the police officers that arrested me. He is a true professional and I highly recommend him.

Honest, dependable, and knowledgeable
Being 16 hours away and never had been in San Antonio, my family was so blessed to have chosen Mr. Collins to represent our son. Although our son had turned his life around his past mistakes came back around. Mr Collins was able to handle our case quickly. He was willing to answer all questions with extreme knowledge. If you need a lawyer that has the experience to get the job done, I would give the highest recommendation to Mr. Collins and Nancy his assistant. They even helped my family with travel information. They were very open with what could and could not be done and never left me hanging. I would like to say Thank you, keep up the good work! Mr. Collins showed through his actions that he lives by the golden rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you!

Couldn't have asked for better representation!!
I hired Mr. Collins to represent me on a domestic charge that upset me to the core. I needed an attorney that would keep me informed, educate me on the process, and truly support me and my interests throughout my ordeal. For a grueling six months he did just that. Mr. Collins made himself available to me throughout the process. Emails were answered quickly. Return phone calls were prompt as well as requests for a scheduled meeting. His skills and dogged representation of me at each court appearance was impressive and comforting. The best part - He had my case dismissed!!! I hope I never need another defense attorney, but if I do I will be at Mr. Collin's doorstep. As a bonus, his legal assistant Nancy, was absolutely wonderful. Kind, quick, and thorough. I highly recommend Mr. Collins

Outstanding results. Call Kevin now!
I hired Kevin to defend my underage son in a DWI case that was by his own admission very challenging. I honestly though the best we could hope for was a conviction with probation. Kevin’s first action was to get the charge to suspend my son’s driver’s license dismissed. This allowed my son to continue to work in his current job. From there Kevin attended multiple court hearings with my son, keeping him informed throughout the entire process. Kevin’s strategy took time, but it ultimately resulted in my son’s case being dismissed before trial. I am grateful for Kevin’s service, and I cannot thank him enough!

Outstanding
Mr. Collins did an exceptional job with me and my case. He kept me informed over the two year process and was there for me whenever I needed a questions answered or help. He kept on the District Attorney and in the end, motioned for a a speedy trial to where my case was finally dismissed. I couldn't have asked for anything better. Thank you..and I would definitely recommend him!

Very pleased
It was a pleasure working with Atty Collins, my son had several charges against him and the possibility of him being charged as an adult (he's 16 years old). Atty Collins was able to work with the prosecutor and we had a great outcome. Our family is very happy with his service.
