Collins Continues to Garner Recognition after Being Named a 2018 Young Leader

Lauren Collins, an associate in the firm’s St. Louis office, was profiled in a recent issue of the St. Louis American. Collins was one of 20 African-American professionals under the age of 40 recognized for excellence in performance and service to others. In the article, Collins discusses how being involved in a diverse group of organizations gives her the opportunity to get different points of view regarding her law practice. She also offers advice to female African-American college students who may be contemplating entering law school. The full article is available here.

In addition to the St. Louis American article, Collins and five other University of Missouri alumni were highlighted in an UMSL Daily news article for being honored at the 8th Annual Salute to Young Leaders networking awards reception. That article is available here.

Collins focuses her practice on complex litigation matters, including asbestos litigation. She is a previous recipient of the Missouri Lawyers Weekly’s Women’s Justice Award. Before joining HeplerBroom, she served as an Assistant Circuit Attorney for the City of St. Louis.
