Howard help us with our will and other items, Howard presents himself in a very professional manner, we could tell that he really cared about what we wanted, he also took the time to explain the documents thoroughly that we did not have any questions. Mr. Collins also was very efficient in getting the document drawn up, I would recommend Mr. Collins to any I know, he is professional, courteous, timely and genuinely cares.

Attorney Howard Collins took time to address my concerns and give me the guidance I very much needed each step of the process. I saw he genuinely cares for his clients and has concern for the stress they experience and the outcome of their case. He has extensive knowledge of law balanced with empathy for the client in his service. He knows what to do and when, and is very conscientious with fees involved. I am grateful to Attorney Howard Collins for taking my case. It was thanks to my membership in Legal Shield that I found him. I stood prepared to write this regardless of the outcome, and the outcome was 100% favorable.

Howard is a very nice guy. He is honest, practical, reasonable and worked with us in a way no other attorney would have. He gave us advice before he took us on and then gave us the best advice for our situation which ultimately prevented us from going through a long court battle. He also is very knowledgeable of family law. I personally used a lawyer for a divorce a few years earlier and he did not give me a lot of information that I wish I would have received. I wish I had used Howard for that because he truly helped draw up the perfect paperwork for our needs. He was in constant communication with the other parties lawyer and he was right on top of pointing out things that the other parties lawyer was trying to place into the documents that, by law, had no reason to be there. I would highly recommend him.
