John (Jack) Collins — Distinguished Attorney

Salyersville, KY —  John (Jack) Collins is being recognized by Continental Who’s Who as a Distinguished Attorney for his work in the field of Law and in acknowledgment of his work at The Law Office of John (Jack) Collins.

With nearly 45 years of experience in the field of Law, Mr. Collins has dedicated his career to practicing Law in Kentucky.

Before starting his decades-long career in Law, Mr. Collins first attended Northern Kentucky University, graduating with his Bachelor of Science degree in 1974. He then studied at the University of Kentucky, graduating with his J.D. degree in 1977.

Mr. Collins has been practicing Law for 44 years. He is admitted to the Kentucky Bar, U.S. District Court, Eastern District of Kentucky, and the U.S. Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit.

His specialty is Personal Injury Law.  Clients come to him with cases for accidents, intentional acts, defective products, hazardous worksites, defamation, and more. He attributes his success to his ability to communicate with people not as a lawyer, but as a friend.

Involved with his community outside of his work in Law, Mr. Collins was a critical member involved with established the Magoffin County High School football team. He was also a leader behind a local election, which resulted in the approval of alcohol sales in Magoffin County, KY.
