Leslie N. Collins

East Alton, Illinois

I was born and raised in Bethalto, Illinois, a small town approximately 35 miles East of St. Louis, Missouri.

I attended Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and obtained my Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting, graduating in 1995. After attending SIUE, I began working for a small accounting/tax firm in East Alton, Illinois. While working full time, I entered law school at St. Louis University and completed the part-time evening program, graduating in May, 2001. I sat for the Bar Exam in July of 2001 and was licensed to practice law in the State of Illinois in November, 2001.

I practiced at a small firm in East Alton, Illinois for approximately 8 years before joining David M. Galanti in his law practice. Prior to joining this firm, I practiced in the areas of Probate and Estate Administration, including preparation of Federal Estate Tax Returns, Estate Planning, Real Estate and Traffic and DUI.

Since joining David M. Galanti in August of 2009, I have continued to practice in the areas of Probate and Estate Administration, Estate Planning and Traffic. However, I have shifted more of my practice to Workers' Compensation.

I am currently married and have two children.
