Very professional and informative
They did a great job at explaining all of my options throughout my divorce. They were very professional at handling my case and kept me well informed when needed. I would definitely recommend.

Preparation of a Medical Directive, Will and Power of Attorney
I with my mother and brothers met with Timothy R. Douglass, Esq, at the law firm of John W. Lee, Esq at the Virginia Beach, VA office, on or about 5 Sep 2022. We also met on 12 Sep 2022 to sign all products. The purpose of our visit was for the preparation of a Medical Directive, Will, and Power of Attorney for my mom. With that, I can't express the superior level of professionalism provided by the receptionist (Kim), in setting up our appointment, and ensuring my mom completed all required forms prior to our in-person meeting. This was followed by our meeting with Timothy R. Douglass, Esq. who did an outstanding job of explaining all documents, and the signing process. Tim also answered all of our questions sufficiently; and there were many! On my mom's return to sign the documents, everything was well organized and professional. We were allowed to thoroughly review all documents, ask questions, and make any required adjustments. "With that, I strongly recommend the law firm of John W. Lee, and more importantly Timothy R. Douglass, Esq for your legal needs and requirements"!!

The whole firm was very polite, understanding, and professional. They were very upfront and honest. They didnt try to say something they could do if they couldn’t do.

Dependable and Dilligent
I came to this law firm with a mess of papers and almost a decade of history to organize. The team gave me clear instructions and even worked around my specific life situations to ultimately, and successfully complete my bankruptcy and truly give me my life back. A year later I was contacted by a debtor that slipped through the cracks. I obtained a paper copy of the outstanding debt, took a clear photo, and emailed the office, per associate instructions and a pleasant call. I was promptly emailed back that the pending problem had been resolved and to contact if ever there are concerns. I fully trust this law firm and highly recommend them to anyone willing to follow their instructions so they can get you your life back!

Knowledgeable, Efficient, and Professional
My lawyer, Mr. Timothy Douglass, has provided a very great experience in an otherwise tough time in my life. I appreciated his attention to detail and his kind demeanor. Kim Miller, paralegal, is also one of the most efficient people I have seen in an office environment. This office will get my strong recommendation any day of the week.

Awesome Job
I cannot say enough about John Lee and his office staff.. I had a very quick situation come up and his staff worked so hard and so quickly to meet my deadline. Mr. Lee was very kind and made me feel very comfortable when we had court. Thank you again.

Legal advise and representation
I met with John Lee to discuss a few legal matters from financial to personal and was impressed with his professionalism. I retained him for several issues we discussed and was very pleased with his representation and outcome. I have and will continue to not only use his services but to refer him to others.
