Stephen Collins was born in Spokane, Washington in 1959 while his father was stationed at Fairchild Air Force Base. His father was discharged from the military in 1960 and they returned to the family home in Atlanta, Louisiana which is in the southern part of Winn Parish. He grew up there and graduated from Atlanta High School in 1977. He enrolled in college at Louisiana College in Pineville, Louisiana where he was active in many organizations and served as Student Body President his senior year – 1981. From there it was off to law school. In 1984, he graduated from LSU with his law degree and then clerked at the Court of Appeal, 2nd Circuit in Shreveport, Louisiana. Thereafter he worked at Cook, Yancey, King and Galloway, Norman R. Gordon and Associates, Dudley DeBosier Injury Lawyers and then opened his own office. He practices primarily in the areas of personal injury and criminal law.
Client service is always his primary goal. While being in court or attending and preparing for various legal proceedings keeps him out of the office, every effort is made to personally answer the phone or at least promptly return all calls. Spending time with the client and discussing their case helps to bring better results. Client service means more than handling paperwork. Advice and assistance with daily living matters, medical insurance, medical treatment, transportation and other problems that occur due to injuries from accidents are needed and Mr. Collins’ 30 plus years of experience are invaluable to his clients.
Recognized by the National Academy of Jurisprudence as one of the top 100 trial attorneys in Louisiana. Less than 1% of all attorneys currently practicing in the US are selected for this designation. (Learn more about the NAJ by clicking HERE.)
