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.
