Through Thick and Thin

Jonathan Collins is a professional in his field. He and his colleagues have helped my family through thick and thin with his legal services. On one occasion, Mr. Collins traveled across Arizona to represent my family.

His demeanor in and out of the courtroom is as winning as his record. I recommend Jonathan to anyone in need of legal services for family, bankruptcy and corporate law issues.

A Great Lawyer Who Cares About His Clients

Jon was extremely professional when working my case for a guardianship of a child. Jon’s work was very efficient and he kept in constant contact with me about my case leaving me feeling comfortable and taken care of.

I felt secure with Jon in my corner on my case and because of Jon and the great work he did for me, my family member was kept safe from harm at all times and was spared from potential and detrimental psychological harm.

Jon is a great lawyer and despite his extremely busy schedule, makes you feel that you matter and are a priority to him as his client.

I would recommend Jon Collins to all my friends, family and any other person that needs legal counsel. If I need legal counsel in the future, I know I will definitely be seeking help from Jon Collins every time.

Great Representation in DR

Jon, from the beginning of a painful divorce, had my back. I found him to be very responsive and professional.

Finding legal representation these days can be like navigating a mine field. With Jon, I never felt exposed or alone in the process. I have heard horror stories of other Attorneys, exploiting the misfortunes of the helpless.

I was fortunate enough to find an Attorney with a good deal of knowledge and resources to defend me. I would recommend Jon to anyone who wants honesty and integrity in their representation.

Couldn’t Have Chosen a Better Attorney

Jonathan has been a great support through all of my custody issues. I was married to my ex husband when he was going through a high conflict divorce, so I didn’t expect our divorce to be any different. Jonathan has been a life savor in so many situations, keeping me level headed and reasonable through the entire situation.

Some of my friends attorneys will tell them whatever they want to hear, and let them fight court battles they won’t win, just to get the extra legal fees, but Jonathan has never once done that with me.

He will tell me directly if I’m asking for something I can’t realistically get, so it’s not worth my time and money. Because of this, not only have I not wasted money and time on unnecessary legal endeavors, but every time I have gone to court, I have known exactly what to expect and have always gotten exactly what I have asked the court for. Sometimes it’s not always what I initially wanted, but because he keeps me honest and reasonable in this situation prior to going to court, I have been able to focus on what’s really important with these custody issues, and definitely come out looking like the reasonable one.

He’s very in touch and familiar with the Judges and Parenting Coordinators. Explains what to expect from each one, and how to adjust your requests based on who is proceeding your case.

If you’re going through a divorce or custody battle, especially a high conflict one, I would highly recommend Jonathan to represent you. I have been represented by him for over 5 years. If you listen to his guidance, he will not let you down.

Jon came recommend to me in 2008 when I found myself facing divorce. I was being thrown into a situation I never thought would happen to me. Jon was sensitive and caring and truly did was in my best interest.

He answered my never ending questions and concerns and walked me through every step of the process. On and off throughout the years other questions have come up and Jon has always made himself available to me for answers and advice.

Recently our parenting plan needed some adjustments so I again went to Jon. He was patient with me and helped me do what was best for my children and I.

I was nervous about going to court and child support adjustments and everything else that comes along with that process. By the time we actually made it to court I was confident in what to expect and felt Jon had properly prepared both me and himself to go in front of a judge.

I am truly grateful for him and all he has done for my children and I over the years. He is much more than an attorney to us, he is a friend.

Not your run of the mill attorney

Mr. Collins is not your run of the mill attorney; he will make certain that you make the ethical choice and what is in your family’s best-interest. He will stand up for you against other less-ethical attorney’s and does not back down.

He is the ‘junkyard dog’ of attorney’s. Highly recommended.

Mr. Collins was referred to me from a co-worker in 2010.

I’ve required Mr. Collins services a number of times and each time he has been phenomenal.

Mr. Collins is honest, trustworthy, and seeks the best solution for his client. Mr. Collins constantly reminded me of what would be in the best interest of my children. He helped me see the bigger picture and explained each step of the legal process in a way that I could understand.

Excellent Strategic Thinker

Jon is one of those rare attorneys capable of taking the long view of how to accomplish the goal you wish to achieve, define the strategy and communicate it in a manner that is crystal clear.

Superb listening skills coupled with a compassionate but forthright way of mapping out a step-by-step plan is remarkably reassuring, even in the most complicated and demanding circumstances.

Want a lawyer who will calmly stand up for you, or persistently fight for you, or successfully negotiate a solution where no solution seemed to exist before? Jon Collins is that guy.

Excellent Lawyer

Jon is a very good moral honest person that is easy to determine upon meeting him. This gave me a feeling of trust very quickly which I think is essential for comfort in feeling you have good representation.

Jon is intelligent, very knowledgeable and well studied. He maintains communication consistently and thoroughly. He is patient in explaining issues. Jon is always well prepared and prompt.

He worked diligently to obtain a good outcome on a complex case for us. I recommend him wholeheartedly.

Personal Integrity

I’ve known Jon for many years. The thing I love about Jon and his service is I always knew where I stood.

I always knew what was required to get my legal issue behind me. Sometime it may not have been pleasant, but in the end It has always worked out for the best.

The one thing our society is lacking is honesty. You can always trust Jon. I personally know he is completely honest in all his business and personal dealings.

Truly Dedicated

Joseph Collins has been helping my husband for over three years now. Mr. Collins helped him receive medical treatment, finances and support after a work related accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury. Nobody was willing to listen to us or help, but Mr. Collins offered support and worked immediately to learn about all that had happened to my husband. It is because of him that my husband has started getting help.

Mr. Collins is quick to return phone calls or respond to messages. He is honest and kind – even when he has to tell you what you things you don’t want to hear.

We appreciate his continued service and would recommend him to anyone seeking help.
He has great staff members that are always friendly and quick to help.


Absolutely Recommend Joe Collins Services

Joe Collins has been my attorney for 6 years now. I have contracted his services for family law and for advising on a criminal act perpetrated by a family member against my dependent child.

Joe and his father Bob Collins have been excellent assets throughout my family court proceedings that were complex and lengthy. Joe Collins is well known in the family court system being both knowledgeable of the other litigating attorneys, and the judges that rotate on and off the bench.

An added perk was that Bob Collins has a police background and he is skilled in the analytical methods used by law enforcement.

I prevailed in my lengthy court proceedings because I had an excellent, savvy, cost effective, tenured legal team representing me and the best interests of my dependents.

Child and Grandparent’s Rights

J Collins has been out family attorney for many (about 6 ) years. He has never given up on finding ways to keep my granddaughter in our lives. He has been true to the laws even when the court didn’t abide by the laws. Trying to keep the bills down and fighting hard for the child’s and grandparents rights were difficult, but not impossible for Mr. Collins. He and all of them are helpful and caring.

Complex Business Litigation Case

I had a great experience. My  business litigation case was quite complicated, I felt that pressured and like the other party, my ex-business partner was trying to take advantage of me; but the attorneys at Collins & Collins  were with me all the way and I didn’t feel alone in this. They tried very hard to make things easy for me and to explain everything since I had no idea about these things and legal issues, I have never had to deal problem before in my life. I think that the Collins are very good lawyers. Would highly recommend.
