08/03/2015, Since December 2008, my ex-husband has bullied me and done everything to try to take my daughter from me. He has had me followed by investigators, hired incompetent therapists for my daughter and I have had several different layers over the years and in some of the hearings I have even been prose because each year he sues me and keeps the litigation going, nonstop. In 2014, I hired Kathleen Collins by the recommendation from another attorney who said I needed someone who could help me get this over with once and for all. This other attorney said that if Kathleen couldn't help me, then no one could probably help me, because my ex has next to unlimited funds and I live paycheck to paycheck. Well, she was right. After seeing Kathleen in the courtroom question the witnesses and believing in me and in what she is doing, win or lose the case she did an exceptional job. She was on point at every turn of the case and advised me well every time. She was not fighting for just me but she was fighting for what she believed (in my opinion) to be what was best for my daughter as well. And that meant such a great deal to me. My daughter deserves the best fight and Kathleen helped me to do that. She won the case for us and now my ex-husband will not be able to move my daughter away from me, at least not this year. He will most likely file again next year if not for something else sooner, but I will definitely be at an advantage with Kathleen Collins as my attorney and feel more confident that my daughter is safer now that I have her on my side fighting for us. I absolutely recommend Kathleen Collins and her associate Kurt, who helped me along the way as well, to anyone who is looking for a brilliant and dedicated attorney. She will be mine from here on out. Thank you, Kathleen, for everything you did and continue to do to help us. Jury recommended an award of $135,000 in attorney fees.

"Fathers have been told time and time again that it is impossible to be awarded custody of their children. Fathers often decide not to proceed with court in order to avoid confrontation with the other parent. The most important decision a father can make is to insure the safety and well-being of their children. I would like to personally thank you for your patience, time, and consideration throughout court proceedings. Thank you". Jury Trial, the father won custody of his two year old son from an all woman jury.

"I hired her to represent me in a modification of my divorce decree. My ex-wife attempted to limit my time with our children and increase my child support payments. She had moved to another state, with our children and I had moved to another Texas County. She took my case to the Court of Appeals, winning an important legal victory for father's rights. All the while the long court case was pending, I had peace of mind because I knew Kathleen cared about my case and my children".
