Uptown Lawyer: A Study of Criminal Law in the Real World (Paperback)
High-powered defense attorney Robert B. Collins recounts his pulse-pounding cases in this new book, Uptown Lawyer. Collins' clients are as famous and flamboyant as he himself: pop music superstar Michael Johnson, Scott Garrison accused of murdering his unborn child and wife, and Mark Ruckerberg who needs his security advice. Through it all, Collins is guided by his dogged investigations and his oath to follow always his founding Mission Statement--DEFEND AND PROTECT INNOCENT VICTIMS WHO DO NOT HAVE THE ABILITY TO DEFEND AND PROTECT THEMSELVES, ABOVE ALL I WILL ALWAYS SEARCH FOR AND BASE MY POSITION ON THE TRUTH

Collins has been married for fifty-five years; he and his wife live in the heart of technical utopia--Silicon Valley.
