What Clients Say About Us…

William Collins took my case after a previous attorney left me in a state of bewilderment. He put together a strategy and I executed everything that he asked of me. His staff was AMAZING!!! Mr. Collins ensures his clients are satisfied with their outcome and follow through on his commitments. Thanks for a job well done!

William and his team has saved me from loosing my mind and literally going broke every month trying to pay everything after a divorce. I initially researched and contacted several attorneys before deciding on William. I selected him because I was able to meet with him in person and not a staff member, his cost was the most affordable, and he explained everything to me. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because once I emailed the same information a few times and did not get a response which was very unusual as William himself usually responds fairly quickly even when he was on vacation. His response would be something simple like "got it" but at least it was a response. In this particular instance, I emailed a 3rd time with the same info and asked why wasn't I getting a response. He responded to that one was in what I believe was a very rude way, no apology for not responding he just basically told me what I was requesting wasn't important at that time. He told me it was the end of the month and they had to close out well I DO NOT WORK THERE, I didn't know they had "end of the month" and can't respond to emails. Other than that they were great.Update to owner's response:I NEVER asked to have any services done for free, may you need to re-read my response I said your services were great however you were rude in your response which you were. If you decided not to charge then say that but don't portray that I asked you give me something for free, besides how can I not pay you when I'm billed for your services. I can attach your email response if you like. Like I said you telling me it's the end of the month and you didn't have time was not necessary a simple response to say you received it would have been sufficient enough. So for 1) I see you get defensive with a true review and 2) You can't own up to your mistake and fault, sorry I didn't give you a 5-star but you don't deserve it from me.

Collins & Arnove LLC is a team of personable, professional, and competent individuals in the bankruptcy field. With an initial free consultation, the whole process is explained, weighing in on the pros and cons. There's no pressure to commit to anything, and above everything else, Mr Collins and his team were very reassuring in a troublesome time for me and my wife. Definitely highly recommended.

Great service, attention to detail, quality work, knowledgeable, highly skilled. These are just a few of the experiences I was provided with after engaging this firm. The entire process from beginning to end was seamless and painless. I worked directly with William and he provided an enormous amount of value when helping us through our case. He made sure we understood the entire process from start to finish and answered all of our questions. Communication is a big part, and William and his team communicated timely and effectively. I highly recommend their services.

I met William Collins for a consultation meeting. My case for bankruptcy was a little more complex, and in the end, he suggested I wait a bit longer to file. So instead of immediately trying to lock me down as a client, he put my best interest first. He even went as far to continue to research the issue further and emailing me back the very next day. He is awesome and someone you can trust.

If i could give more stars, i honestly would. The process was so smooth, i was informed every step of the way, everything was explained with details and such fast response time. For anyone who is struggling with debts to the point that i was, i strongly recommend you visit William Collins for your own mental health and well being. I assure you there are options. Mr. William Collins i just want to say thank you, thank you so much for helping me. I am now a new person. Thank you!

I had an excellent experience with Collins and Arnove so 5 star rating is very accurate. He is extremely easy to talk to and down to earth, and made this unfortunate situation smooth and predictable. His knowledge will make you feel comfortable and confident during the entire process. I've already send referrals his way!

When I was in need of bankruptcy I went looked for a good lawyer . I need to act fast since I was getting garnishment against me I went in spoke to William Collins and went through all the needs I need to go over with him and what the pros and cons. He made sure I was doing to this all the right reasons. I got everything need in with in a month I had court date for my discharge. It was fast and very professional. I have recommended him and his staff to friends and family if they are thinking about bankruptcy. Very professional and communication even after my bankruptcy.

This was my first time filing bankruptcy- had no idea on how to proceed-- I call Collins & Arnove. From my first meeting, Collins was most helpful in explaining the process. Collins made the process so easy from the beginning until the end. He made it so easy for me--I came away feeling like filing bankruptcy wasn't as scary as I thought it would be.I would highly recommend this firm. Diana, Frisco,TX.

William Collins and staff could absolutely not have been any better if they try. The saying is the less you hear from your lawyer, the better...they reached out to verify information and were super quick to respond when we had any questions (day or night) but they handled almost everything on their end and didn’t need to involve us in every little step, which I really appreciated. Couldn’t be happier with the services we received from this firm. I hope I never need his services again, but if I do, I know exactly where to go.

Where We Are Located

Why Choose Us?

  • Years Of Experience Practicing Only Bankruptcy

  • Up Front Pricing With Payment Plans

  • Processes and Procedures to Make The Process Hassle Free

  • Because We Are The Heroes

At Collins & Arnove we empathize with our clients and and want to make their lives easier and more stress free.  We do that with systems and processes that give them the information they need to feel comfortable about what they are going through and by making it easy on them in terms of getting the information necessary to get the proper paperwork together.

Collins & Arnove have over 35 years of combined Bankruptcy experience.  Bankruptcy is the only area of law that both William Collins and Greg Arnove have ever practiced.  We have filed thousands of cases and discharged millions in debt.  Greg Arnove is Board Certified in Bankruptcy Law; one of only a handful of attorneys in the Dallas area.  We routinely get referrals from other attorneys for more complicated cases they feel they can’t handle.

Our belief is that the Bankruptcy laws were enacted for your protection.  Great things can happen when you get out from under the stress of debt.  You can become a better parent, spouse, worker, and friend.  You can pursue ideas and dreams that weren’t possible before.  It is for these reasons that the laws were enacted.  We don’t judge our clients about the reasons they are filing, rather we explain how the process works and explain how their life will be different if they choose to seek the protections of Bankruptcy.

At Collins & Arnove you will always receive personal attention.  Unlike many other Bankruptcy firms, you will always meet with an attorney (not a paralegal or sales person).  You will always have either William Collins or Greg Arnove at your meeting of creditors (not a coverage attorney whom you’ve never met).  You will always be able to e-mail or call us directly with questions or concerns.
