Client Comments

"Ms. Collins is top drawer in every respect. She is a true joy to work with. Her concern for our policy implementation is obviously high, but goes above and beyond to assist in educating our staff on current issues. Each member of the Employee Relations team would acknowledge her as a positive factor in their personal and professional growth. Ms. Collins is a key player in our union avoidance program, assisting us in planning, preparing, and presenting a training program that, by all accounts, has established us as a leader in the area in this category. To date, our staff has not been confronted by third-party representation, due in large part to the training program. I have worked with other lawyers over the years, all good, few, if any, in the same league."

Celia is very personable and comfortable with employees at all levels in our organization, and they are comfortable with her. We trust and respect her greatly."

-Jay Martindale
Mobile Infirmary Medical Center

"I have always appreciated and respected her opinion and expertise. She is very attentive to all of our issues and does a great job on following up on those issues. Her ability to laugh with us, or at some of the more difficult issues, is always comforting and makes the process a little bit more bearable!"

-Ivy Singley
Thomas Hospital

"I have been working with Ms. Collins for the past 15 years, and I believe that their services in the employment law area are as good as can be found."

-Claude Thompson
Warranty Corp.

"Ms. Celia Collins is always available; most of the time answering the phone call or visit directly. She has the ability to teach without being condescending. Her communication style is very comfortable, but at the same time direct and most efficient. She is one of the few people in my life and career that I can truly say that I learn something from every time I am around her. Her commitment to her clients, her profession, her family and friends are to be appreciated and emulated. She is the best."

-Randy Stembridge
