Biography

Collin is one of the top trial attorneys in North Florida. He was awarded the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America Award in 2014 and 2015. He earned his degree from St. Mary's University School of Law in San Antonio, Texas. He received a degree in Business Finance and minors in Economics from Florida State University. He served as a State Prosecutor in Felony, Misdemeanor, Traffic, and Juvenile divisions where he handled over 6,000 criminal cases. He also served as a State Attorney Liaison for the Weed and Seed drug program. Collin gained additional experience and insight working as Senior Counsel for the Florida Department of Insurance prosecuting insurance companies for fraudulent practices. He opened his private practice in 2002. Collin handled the defense of the one of the largest drug cartel cases recorded in Leon County which was in excess of 9,000 pounds of cannabis. Collin obtained a 12 minute not guilty verdict on a Food Lion manager accused of 3 counts of sexual assault after a week long trial. His firm has worked to obtain a $335,000 verdict on a $25,000 insurance policy and a $100,000 settlement in an auto accident case with a $10,000 auto insurance policy due to bad faith insurance practices. Collin handles medical malpractice, wrongful death, products liability, whistleblower, civil rights, class action and consumer justice cases. Collin has helped his clients obtain millions of dollars in recovery since starting his private practice in 2002. Collin had several drug cases dismissed for jurisdictional reasons, for police overzealous tactics and civil rights violations including making vehicle stops and home searches without legal cause. His client was arrested with over 100 cannabis plants in his home grow operation and all charges were dismissed for an illegal search without a warrant. Collin practices in both federal and state court. Collin is a passionate, highly skilled and aggressive lawyer who will fight for your rights in and out of court. Collin is the right attorney for you.
