The Legacy continues…
My sister and I just completed our Estate Plan with Collins Law Group just as our parents did before us. They took the time to not only talk but listen to what our family legacy means to us. We appreciate that they have given us a great sense of security. We will forever be grateful and we will recommend that our family and friends have an estate plan. Thank you.

First Class Service
My parents used the services of Attorney Collins over a decade ago and then went back for an update to their trust in 2018, which is how I became familiar with them. Her firm created a well organized plan for my parents to follow, so when I needed a trust I knew where to go. The process with me worked out very well, as I was able to undergo the initial consultations by phone, with the final in-office. Ms. Collins’ associates had answers for my many questions and I left very satisfied. I am now well prepared to pass along the assets I worked so hard to acquire, and have a solid legal plan which will stand up in court.

Best Trust Attorney in Southern California
The Collins Law Group (CLG) provided a thorough orientation presentation outlining the pros and cons of creating a Living Trust. I hired Collins Law Group and they asked specific questions to know my situation, prepared my Living Trust, and they follow-up with me on a regular basis. I had to update elements of my trust and they handled it efficiently. CLG recently provided complementary trust consultation for another of my family's trust and referred to other professionals to assist with administering my other family trust. I recommend the Collins Law Group to everyone in need of trust law assistance.

Very Pleasant and Professional
At the Collins Law Group my experience has been very pleasant and professional. The ambiance is incredibly warm family, which makes anyone feel welcomed. The Collins Law group takes a hands-on approach when dealing with each client. I had gone to a seminar a few years back, I regrettably procrastinated before I got serious about planning my estate. The Collins Law groups has remained there for all their clients, especially in answering any question with exceptional detail. The videos they show at their final signing are very well organized and have clear information. Other families without estate planning would benefit from the Collins Law group, because of their family-oriented firm and the hands-on staff.

Trusted Firm!
Attorney Collins prepared a comprehensive Living Trust package for my parents over ten years ago. In the last few years, health issues have necessitated that I assume responsibility for some of my parents financial and medical affairs. As questions and concerns started to overwhelm me, my father suggested I get in touch with Attorney Collins for guidance. Sure enough, Attorney Collins and her staff were responsive, empathetic and eager to provide assistance. A consultation with Attorney Collins was arranged and she thoroughly and compassionately answered my questions and provided the latest legal updates that will help me make the best decisions for my family. The Collins Law Group can be relied upon to be there when their clients need them!

A First-Rate Estate Attorney
When my mom died, I knew nothing about how to settle her estate. Attorney Collins and her team helped me to successfully navigate the often confusing road that an executor trustee must travel. I could not have completed the job without her expert guidance and support.

I highly recommend the Collins Law Group
I was referred to the Collins Law Group seminar by a friend. I actually went to two of the free wills and trusts seminars because I brought a friend the second time because I knew they’d also benefit from it. I had no idea that wills and living trusts were two different things and that only having a will would automatically put your estate through probate. Yes, in California, all Wills get probated. That’s mandatory! My experience creating the living trust with the firm has been excellent. Attorney Collins and her staff are very professional, well organized and knowledgeable. The icing on the cake was the customized video that was prepared for me. It explained all of the documents in great detail and its available for me to show my family because they give each client their own customized video. That to me is brilliant. The video explains all answers to the questions you might have and of course, the firm is always available to answer questions themselves. I highly recommend the Collins Law Group.

Excellent Service
Collins Law Group provides an excellent level of service. They are valued at a 10 for exceptional service. The Collins Law Group team is knowledgeable and professional. Before I completed my plan, I attended one of Ms. Collins’ free estate planning seminars. Estate Planning and Probate were subjects that I never gained any in depth knowledge about before the seminar. The seminar opened my eyes to the usefulness of having a Living Trust. I’m someone who prides herself on being in control so making decisions about who handles my affairs if I were to become incapacitated or die was very important to me. Ms. Collins and her staff make clients comfortable and never put pressure on you. The process is hassle free and efficient. You definitely have peace of mind once it’s completed. I highly recommend them.

Highly Recommended!!!
As a pastor for 25 years of large Los Angeles churches, my family and I have seen families suffer through probate. We went to a Collins Law Group seminar four years ago but procrastinated. At the Estate Planning seminar, we were reminded just how much we wanted to avoid probate. So when our son really started pushing us to get this planning done, we knew it was time. We have friends who are clients of Collins Law Group and they sing praises to the work Attorney Collins and her staff does. We love the professionalism, patience and understanding that she and her staff possess. They are conscientious, organized and above all else, excellent professionals. We are definitely recommending our son and other people we know to get their planning done with Attorney Collins and her team.

Extremely Informative Seminar I Thought I Didnt Have Time To Attend
Our family's future is more secure since having our trust done with this Law Firm. I just happened to attend a free trust siminar my girl friend kept insisting that I attend with her. I finally gave in, and I was pleasantly surprized at how much great information we got with how many pitfalls our families could avoid by taking the trust route into our latter years in life with our eyes wide open rather than taking a chance that everything would just work itself out. Not a wise choice. Im so happy i gave in and attended this free seminar. I highly recomend this down to earth, easily understood, great information your family will benefit from.

Exceptional Client Service
The seminar was fantastic. The comprehensive nature of the presentation gave me total confidence in the knowledge and professionalism of Attorney Collins. She made me comfortable and proved that I could find a firm of this caliber in my own neighborhood. I was thoroughly impressed. Although I had a Living Trust made by another firm years ago, the one prepared by the Collins Law Group was much more detailed and comprehensive. The Collins Law Group is a great asset to our community and the families they protect.

Knowledgeable and Professional
Attorney Collins exudes excellence in everything she does! My brother became a client in 2014 and since then my husband and I have also become clients. Attorney Collins is knowledgeable and is very sensitive to people’s needs. My brother was under sub-standard conditions from his long-time friend and full-time caregiver. She had been stealing his money for years and never followed through on some of my brother’s most basic needs. Attorney Collins gave me the wonderful knowledge that I can continue to use and educate my family when it comes time to administer my Trust in any way. Attorney Collins laid out the situation for me and my siblings with no equivocation. She was suggesting the remedies available to have the caregiver removed from my brother’s house. She was even able to recommend several reputable services for in home care. Attorney Collins’ ability to keep the situation and meeting calm among people who can be anything but that shows how committed and poised she is when it comes to getting the job done. Her law expertise aside, she has a big heart and love for her clients which shows in everything she does. I could get on my knees and thank the Collins Law Group for finally bringing this painful situation to a close.

Very pleased with their services.
Attorney Collins is on top of it! She explains things extremely well and it has been a true pleasure working with her. I wasn’t aware of how disastrous it would be to only have a will in CA. If you don’t already know, all wills in CA get probated. You need a living trust to avoid it! My brothers pushed me to come to Attorney Collins’ seminar because both of them are clients. Now she has all 3 of us! I knew after having a consultation with Attorney Collins that she was the right woman for the job. She and her team do an exceptional job at making the process easy and comprehensive. They go step by step and check for understanding along the way. I am very pleased with their services.
