    The most understanding, spiritual, and knowledgeable lawyer in North Carolina. My son had an issue with his drivers license and we had to come back to NC to get these issues resolve. Mr. Collins took time with my son to explain in detail how the law works.

    I hired Mr. Collins in August of 2014 for 3 different probation violation, one felony and two misdemeanor violations. My violations were for many things including absconding and convictions of new charges. From the start Mr. Collins told me that there was a chance I could receive my active sentence of 8-10 months. After doing everything Mr Collins told me to do the judge modified my probation with no jail time. I highly recommend him for any trouble. He is upfront and great in the courtroom.

    I own a real estate company in business 40 years, I deal with a lot of attorneys, I am on A bank board in Raleigh, President of a Power Company and I deal with a lot of attorneys. John Collins represented my son in a traffic violation and Mr. Collins was superior in his trial skills, his knowledge, and his professionalism is beyond reproach.. He was honest and straight forward and extremely intelligent and presented our case without fault. I would highly recommend him to the general public.
