About Patrick T Collins

Attorney Biography

The measure of a lawyer is his level of commitment to his client. No attorney is more committed than me to being responsive to your needs and requirements, and to providing the highest quality advocacy focused on what is cost effective for you.

I am well versed in family law, divorce, construction, legal malpractice and complex commercial litigation.

As one of only four attorneys to be certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as both a Civil Trial Attorney and Matrimonial Law Attorney, I have provided legal services in New Jersey since 1984. I am attorney of record in fifteen reported decisions, have served as expert witness in several legal malpractice cases, and have argued to the Supreme Court six times.

As one of approximately 120 Certified Matrimonial Attorneys in New Jersey, I am respected by the courts and my peers as an authority in family law . Whether you need help regarding divorce, child support, child custody, alimony or any area of family law I will make use of my knowledge and courtroom experience to insure that we achieve the most ideal results.

I also focus on representing contractors in construction industry disputes. I have tried cases in numerous forums arising from disputes with owners, general contractors and subcontractors, and have considerable expertise and experience with public bidding disputes, both at the protest level and in litigation.

My experience in this area primarily involves representimg plaintiffs in addition to serving as an expert witness. I have tried several such cases to successful jury verdicts, and my expert testimony has supported positive results in other cases.
