Margaret A. "Meg" Collins is a lifelong native of Columbia, South Carolina. She attended the University of South Carolina Honors College, majoring in International Relations with a minor in Business Administration. After employment with the South Carolina Senate, Ms. Collins attended the University of South Carolina School of Law, while concurrently clerking for a small firm that focused on secured transactions, collections, creditor bankruptcy and contract law. Once licensed in 1997, Ms. Collins developed a very successful private practice encompassing general civil and domestic litigation, computer and information technology law, business, procurement, municipal and local government representation and much more. Only three short years after starting her practice, Attorney Collins was promoted to partner in an AV Rated firm. Throughout her practice, representative clients have included banks and financial institutions, information management companies, local government, entrepreneurs and start-ups, as well a variety of individuals. Attorney Collins brings an analytical and business approach to her practice, but maintains the creativity necessary to develop and implement “out-of-the-box” solutions to complex problems.
