Mason at the Office of Attorney David Collins
Mason at the Office
While we have two office locations in Wilmington, North Carolina in New Hanover County- Mason prefers to stay at our primary office, located in Oleander Oaks at 5725-F2 Oleander Drive, Wilmington, NC 28403.
Mason, the legal beagle, who passed away in September 2014, helped her daddy to run Collins Law Firm, and her focus was the wellbeing of the humans, staff and clients alike.
Now Newton and her younger sister Onslow now make up the hospitality team at Collins Law Firm. Newton and Onslow usually spend their weekdays at the office where they sleep at our feet as we answer the phones, prepare legal pleadings, and everything else to assist our clients. Every once in a while they lift their furry chin for a scratch, or roll over for a tummy tickle, or give us a nudge for a fast bathroom break outside.
Having our four legged companions in the office helps us to manage our stressful days. Their presence even helps some of our clients because being greeted by Newton and Onslow is a little bit like therapy for them. However, our four legged staff is usually kept behind closed doors and only attends to our visitors upon request.
Newton and Onslow’s presence at Collins Law Firm has been proved to have even more benefits then we thought – studies have found that staff morale and worker productivity are increased by bringing pets to work, which results in an enhanced job performance.
Mason joined Collins Law Firm in the year 2000, Newton became part of our firm on September 1, 2018, and Onslow joined our team in December 2019. However, when not at work, Newton and Onslow enjoy walks, playing tug-a-war with sticks, watching their human brother at baseball practices and games, as well as their other sports. Newton and Onslow can also be found chasing tennis balls at the park, or sunbathing in their back yard.
