Meet Attorney Jackie L. Collins II

Jackie grew up in an agricultural community in Northwest Ohio. Graduating high school in a class of only 65 people, this small community enabled Jackie to experience the hardships of both his and other families. One of those hardships included watching loved ones lose everything they worked their entire lives for to the government and/or nursing home when an unexpected illness stuck. Jackie left Northwest Ohio to attend The Ohio State University and its Army ROTC program. He graduated from OSU and was commissioned an Officer in the United States Army, Field Artillery in December 2003.

After six years serving as an Officer in the United States Army, he attended Capital University Law School and then was admitted into the Ohio Bar. Jackie chose Elder Law, VA and Estate Planning so he could continue to serve his community. Jackie believes educating families on Estate Planning can preserve family dynamics and avoid conflicts over a loved one’s wants and needs. As a member of ElderCounsel, Jackie believes that a strong sense of compassion is necessary to get the job done right.
