“David Collins was my attorney and I have no doubt this gentleman has met his calling. He is smart, kind and does whatever it takes to advise you in the best possible ways and gives you hope. His team meets and reviews your case regularly so you get the power of a firm behind the attorney… I highly recommend them.”
David has been a practicing attorney in Colorado since 2004, with a background in criminal, immigration, and family law. Prior to becoming an attorney, David spent the 1990’s working with and on behalf of children in a variety of settings including preschools, after school programs, residential youth programs, and during his two years of service with the AmeriCorps program.
David’s decades of working with and on behalf of children and families is central to his family law practice. He believes that helping folks navigate through what is one of the most stressful events of their life can be of great benefit to both the parents getting divorced and the children impacted by the process. David helps clients understand how the process of a divorce or other family law matter will play out, from the filing of a petition to a final order being issued by a Judge to help clients manage the stress of engaging in what is often a foreign experience. David’s years of experience as a courtroom litigator have helped him develop highly prepared strategies to assure outcomes in the best interest of the client and their children.
