About Rick Collins

Attorney Rick Collins of Collins Gann McCloskey & Barry PLLC has been practicing law in the area of criminal defense since 1990, after serving for five years as a prosecutor handling criminal cases of all types. Throughout his decades of private practice, he has always sought to go above and beyond for his clients and to treat them like family. While a fierce advocate in court, his “bedside manner” with clients is highly approachable and attentive. Unlike many hard-to-reach lawyers whose style is rushed, gruff, or otherwise preoccupied (some often even fail to return phone calls!), Rick strives to make every client feel like their case is his highest priority. His client reviews confirm that!
