Service to Military Families Earns Collins Distinguished 40 Under Forty Award

ALBUQUERQUE – Bobbie J. Collins, an associate in Lewis Roca Rothgerber Christie LLP’s Litigation practice group, is one of Albuquerque Business First’s 40 Under Forty award winners for 2018.

The 40 Under Forty awards recognize outstanding young professionals based on their professional achievements, leadership skills and contributions to the Albuquerque community.

Collins focuses her practice on real estate development and financial services litigation, representing developers, landowners, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers, real estate brokers, landlords, tenants, lenders, and loan servicing companies in a variety of real estate-related litigation and arbitration matters. A graduate of the University of Denver’s Sturm College of Law, she also holds a New Mexico Real Estate Associate Broker’s License and a Master of Laws (LL. M.) in Taxation. Collins is a former deputy district attorney in the El Paso County District Attorney’s office in Colorado Springs, Colo.

In 2017, Collins was honored with the Volunteer Service Award by the Military Spouse J.D. Network (MSJDN), a bar association for military spouse attorneys. Collins is a military spouse whose husband spent seven years on active duty with the U.S. Air Force. MSJDN’s mission is to serve military families and improve communities through the network’s legal abilities. Collins was recognized for her work helping the MSJDN State Licensing Committee draft a report and proposed rule change for a military spouse attorney limited license in New Mexico aimed at making obtaining licensure and employment easier for military spouses who move and are based in New Mexico with their active duty spouse. She also worked with MSJDN’s Pro Bono Committee to start a Military Spouse Club Project Team to provide military-spouse charitable and social clubs operating on military installations with guidance on formation, governance, and operational issues. Additionally, she serves as Pro Bono General Counsel to the Kirtland Air Force Base Spouses Club, and recently had a scholarship named in honor of her volunteer work for it.
