What People Are Saying  

  • After two years of having a criminal case hanging over my head, yesterday it was over. Rick Collins and Phil Nash were an amazing team that put in a lot of time on my case and it paid off. I won't discuss it but it was jaw dropping.
    It doesn’t get any better than Rick Collins


  • When I first met Mr. Collins I was put instantly at ease. His knowledge and calm confidence of my situation was a huge stress relief. There is simply no one who is better qualified to handle my situation. Mr. Collins has my complete trust as my attorney. He is very personable and exudes genuine confidence. I know I am in the best hands possible.  I will absolutely recommend him!!


  • I own and operate a sports nutrition dietary supplement company, so I chose to retain Rick Collins and the team for my legal and regulatory needs. They know everything there is to know about the industry, the laws governing it, and the biggest areas of risk. Rick and his team’s stellar reputation is known industry-wide, and I’m happy to say that I benefit from it. In fact, when I was having an issue getting into a potential distributor’s chain of stores, I mentioned that I retained Rick Collins and his colleagues and I received an application ten minutes later. The industry is changing. You’d be crazy to launch a supplement brand without having the lawyers at Supplement Counsel on retainer. They’re the best.
