About Me

As a sole practitioner, J. Jeffrey Lee is free to provide a personal approach to his clients. He has deliberately avoided unnecessary expenses and overhead in an effort to provide quality legal services to regular people at reasonable prices. This means that our legal fees truly represent the work that we do on your behalf. J. Jeffrey Lee purposely works in a smaller, more efficient law firm because it provides the best results for the client.

Do you know who's working your case? Even more importantly, who will be handling your case if it goes to trial? When you hire J. Jeffrey Lee to be your attorney, that's exactly what you get.

He continues to perform appointed and pro bono work, representing clients in probate court, juvenile court, criminal, and civil courts.
