Union Connection

New York State is one of the top ten states for Labor Union Membership in the United States with 4,519,121 members.  The Department of Labor has implemented many safety regulations that are designed to keep jobsites safe and free from accidents.  However, each year, thousands of workers are injured or killed on the job from failure to follow such regulations.  At Collins & Collins Attorneys LLC, we pride ourselves on having extensive knowledge of labor laws, and are deeply committed to representing labor union members.  If you are a Union Member, do not hesitate to give us a call.  We are a union-oriented injury firm and are intimately familiar with the injuries and situations which can arise in this line of work.

Our firm has long-standing ties to the organized labor movement in the United States, and particularly in New York.  William Collins, father, John T. Collins, was a highly respected figure in the Labor movement in New York and throughout his career, he fought for the rights of union members in a variety of types of personal injury cases. 

Aside from Attorney William Collins, many other members of our law firm have had connections to the organized labor movement, either as legal counsel to labor unions or as members themselves.  Therefore, we understand the needs of union workers better than most other firms, and we put this knowledge to use in fighting for our clients' rights.
