    I chose "sports law" because I couldn't find the proper description - he is an expert on steroids law throughout the world - he has written extensively on the subject, testified before congress and is respected by athletes and law makers.

    Support from Rick does not end after the scope of work is completed. Allow me to express my lasting thanks as the peace of mind you are receiving top talent advocacy is priceless. Every step of the way Rick Collins provides honest answers to complex questions. Clients will be blown away as they experience how hard he works to exceed expectations by going beyond the call. I recommend following Rick Collins on social media, reading his publications and capturing any opportunity to hear him speak.

    Rick is an absolute diamond in the ruff! Not only is he THE subject matter expert on steroid law but he also genuinely cares about his clients and their families. I'm not sure how he does it, but he always immediately returns calls and e-mails. We had an especially complex case that was headed for a disastrous end, until Rick stepped in. The most important lesson this case taught me is that having a great attorney is absolutely critical. There is no one I would recommend more than Rick Collins!

    There aren't enough words to truly express the unending appreciation I have for Rick Collins. He succeeded in sealing charges of mine that were 13 years old allowing me to become a fully licensed dental professional. I am forever grateful to him and his professionalism, communication, dedication, hard work, perseverance, time, and commitment to me during my case. There isn't a more sincere, compassionate lawyer out there! Thank you Rick, truly from the bottom of my heart! JL

    We were very lucky to have been recommended to contact Rich Collins when our business was under the scrutiny of the FDA. He was absolutely incredible! He proved our innocence, beyond a shadow of a doubt and cleared our company of any wrongdoings. I would very highly recommend him. His experience and knowledge in the FDA industry is unparalleled. We will forever be in his debt for giving us our lives back. I truly feel the friendship we have gained with Rich is lifelong.
