Tali was admitted to practice law in Arizona in 2008 and has focused her practice on mediations, coaching, and consultations in family law. She has participated in trials and hearings but prefers the kinder, gentler approach to solving problems. Prior to attending law school at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, North Dakota, Tali graduated from Loyola University-Chicago, where she earned her bachelor's degree in business administration with an emphasis on marketing.
After completing her undergraduate degree, Tali Collins worked with 9th grade at-risk students in Chandler, Arizona. This experience provided her with the opportunity to interact with parents, administrators, and teen-agers to resolve problems. Mrs. Collins then served as the assistant director of BASIS charter school for two years in Scottsdale, Arizona, where she negotiated and interacted with parents, teachers, and students to resolve discipline and other conflict issues. Mrs. Collins appreciates the calm manner that mediation provides clients and their children.
Tali joined the Best Law Firm with her mother, Cindy Best in 2008. She has been a Judge Pro Tem in Maricopa County, Arizona since 2014, and presides over mediations, helping families resolve their family law matters. She is also a member of the Arizona Women Lawyers Association and volunteers for Arizona's Family Law Assistance Program.
