Morton H. Collins

 Morton H. Collins, founder Collins Einhorn Farrell PC, has been selected to receive the Oakland County Bar Association’s Distinguished Career Achievement Award.

The honor was established in 2001 to recognize an attorney whose career exemplifies extraordinary achievement in the ideals of the profession throughout the active legal career of the recipient.

Throughout his five decades of practice as a trial attorney, Collins has been a prominent figure in the defense of legal malpractice, professional liability, directors’ and officers’ liability and products liability cases. In addition to his support to the legal community, Collins is a founding member of JARC, a non-sectarian, non-profit organization that provides high-quality programs for individuals with developmental disabilities.

He has served on the board for the Jewish Community Center, as well as on the board of the St. Louis Center for Boys, a Catholic-based residential community in Chelsea, established for children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities. He is also a past board member of The Arc of Oakland County, which also advocates for the rights and full participation of all children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Collins’ vision lead to the founding of a law firm that now has more than 50 lawyers, in practice areas as diverse as professional liability defense, toxic torts, insurance coverage, appeals, fire and explosion, and nearly every aspect of tort litigation. As the firm celebrates its 45th year of business, it has become a substantial contributor to the civil litigation arena in Michigan and has received numerous awards and accolades.

The OCBA Distinguished Career Achievement Award will be presented to Collins, of West Bloomfield, at the 82nd Annual Meeting of the Oakland County Bar Association on June 2.
