  • Una Lee Jost

    I've had the privilege of knowing Chris Lee as my supervising attorney at a prior law firm we both worked at. He is one of the attorneys who has made a lasting significant impact in my growth as an attorney, and I credit him for helping shape me to become the attorney I am today. He sets high standards for himself and those who work for him as he cares about his work and is a fierce advocate for his clients. He is highly efficient, laser-focused, straightforward, and not afraid to tell you like it is and make you better for it. Plus, he's got a wicked sense of witty humor. I fully recommend him without reservation.
