A strong desire to help people led Stephen M. Collins Jr. to become an attorney. “I see people put in situations they have never experienced before and don’t know their rights,” said Stephen. “ It bothers me to see people being taken advantage of, and it’s unfortunate knowing companies will do that to people.” For Stephen, he gets personal satisfaction knowing that someone has been protected from being victimized by unscrupulous businesses.
Stephen is so passionate about helping others and representing his clients to the fullest that he shares his cell phone number with clients. “I take calls just about any time of the day,” he says.
Originally from Marietta, Georgia, Stephen received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Auburn University in 2007, and his Juris Doctorate from Faulkner University’s Thomas Goode Jones School of Law in 2010. Stephen also earned a certification in Alternative Dispute Resolution. While in law school, Stephen was an active member of the Mediation Clinic, received the CALI award for his scholarship work in Intellectual Property, and was on the Dean’s List.
He has been admitted to all courts in Alabama, as well as the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Alabama and the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Alabama.
While in law school, he worked as a judicial clerk for the Honorable William A. Shashy in Montgomery, Alabama.
Stephen joined Greene & Phillips at the beginning of 2011 where his practice primarily focuses on automobile accidents, personal injury, wrongful death, catastrophic injuries, Social Security disability, premises liability, and workers compensation claims among others.
He currently lives in Fairhope, Alabama, with his wife and two children. They attend Church on the Eastern Shore.
