The goal of Lee Collins' practice is to provide innovative and value-driven solutions to the litigation-related problems facing the client. This objective has been successfully achieved through his direct and open communication with the client, an early and immediate assessment of the issues, strategic evaluation of the problem and its solution, and aggressive representation.
A significant focus of Lee's practice relates to the representation of developers, owners and managers of commercial real estate in state and federal court, including landlord-tenant disputes among all commercial property types, easement and restrictive covenant enforcement, deed restrictions enforcement, condemnation, adverse possession, construction litigation, lien enforcement and landlord-creditor bankruptcy representation. He has lectured to peers in the legal community, including articles in nationally circulated legal and trade publications on various issues affecting commercial landlords and the employment of pre-filing measures calculated to bolster the client's position in the event a tenant files for bankruptcy.
From August 2009-2013, Lee served on the Board of Directors for The Houston Parks Board, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the importance of parks and green space. The organization provides advocacy and services for the preservation, enhancement and expansion of parks in our community.
From 2004 to August 2009, Lee was actively involved with The Park People. In 2009, as Chairman of the Board, Lee facilitated a merger of The Park People into the Houston Parks Board. His commitment to improving the quality of life in Houston through green spaces continues through service as a member of the Board of Directors for Trees for Houston.
