About Me

 


ERNEST LEE was born in Ft. Bragg, NC. He was raised in the military, an Army Kid until his father retired from the U.S. Military and relocated to St. Louis, Missouri. A bright youth, he graduated from high school at the age of 16. He then attended the University of Missouri at St. Louis where he majored in Mass Media –Communications/ Communications Theory. Upon his graduation with a Bachelor’s of Arts degree, he attended Law School at the University of Missouri in Kansas City, where he graduated in 2 years. Upon his graduation from law school, he relocated to San Diego, California where he didn’t know a soul. However, his innate confidence allowed him to not only get on but also thrive in this new area. Upon his passing the California Bar Examination, he was sworn in, a new attorney, and member of the California Bar. He worked for several law firms, learning what he felt was needed from each, until he felt he was ready to commence his life’s work, to start a law firm that would open legal representation for more people for less
