Attorney Kerry H. Collins: Paying It Forward

Attorney Kerry H. Collins is passionate about helping people. As a personal injury attorney with nearly 30 years of experience, he helps people who are dealing with the aftermath of a serious accident. And as an active community member who is involved in several charity projects, he is working in ways that ultimately affect the greater good.

Time and time again, Kerry Collins has seen the courage and determination of clients who have been seriously injured due to the negligence of another person or party in an accident. In an effort to give back to those who have inspired him personally and professionally, he spends time and resources supporting the following charities:

Backpack Program

Kerry Collins is involved in a program that provides backpacks and school supplies for low-income children, giving them the tools they need to succeed at school.

Cancer Awareness

Kerry Collins has been involved in several fund-raising efforts for cancer awareness programs across the state.

Supporting the Troops

For many years, our law firm has sent care packages to troops stationed overseas. We fill the packages with food and supplies that are not available in the countries in which these troops are stationed.

Toys For Tots

Mr. Collins gladly participates in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program to collect new toys to be distributed as Christmas gifts to those less fortunate children in our community.

Thanksgiving Dinners

For years, Mr. Collins has donated baskets that include everything needed to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner including dessert. If you know of someone in need of a basket, please contact our office.

Paying it Forward For Our Clients

If you are a current or past client who has a friend or relative stationed overseas, please let us know. We would love to send your loved one a letter and/or a care package as our way of saying thanks.


Let me start by saying thank you Kerry Collins. My name is Jim Brady and I am the Camplin for the American Legion, American Legion Riders and Sr. Pastor of Harbor Light Family Church.

This year I was the overseer for two fund raising benefits. The first was given as a challenge from the 12th district of the American Legion Riders to raise money for The Fisher House. The Fisher House is a place where the family of a wounded soldier can stay while a soldier is in the hospital (kinda like The Ronald McDonald House). With your contribution we we’re able to raise $4,000.00 and exceeded the challenge.

The second was a fund raiser for our church. We have a vision to purchase a building that will one day house a community center as well as a church. Once again along with your contribution we raised $2,500.00

In today’s economy, it’s difficult to find organizations and businesses that are able to make any type of donations, but not so for you. As you can see by these figures, your generosity helped us make a difference.

God bless you and thank you for all you’ve done.
