An experienced trial lawyer, Ms. Collins began her legal career as an Assistant Public Defender before ultimately transitioning into private practice.
Ms. Collins grew up in rural Alabama, where she spent her childhood in Woodstock and graduated from West Blocton High School.

When she first began practicing law, Ms. Collins volunteered to handle legal matters pro bono for people who could not afford to pay.

Today, Ms. Collins continues to treat her clients just as she would want members of her own family to be treated. She utilizes an honest, transparent approach, working hard on behalf of her clients and openly communicating with them throughout the legal process.

She has been a servant leader in various roles, including leading a small group Bible study. Ms. Collins has also served as room mother for the classroom of one of her children and frequently volunteers for nonprofits that are dear to her heart. In her free time, she enjoys reading and binge-watching shows on Netflix, as well as spending time with her children, whom she believes to be the greatest gift in her life.
