Kind, patient resolve of a families heartache
I am a young " senior " whose family means everything. Seven years ago, my younger healthy brother passed unexpectedly. The pain was so unbearable for me. My daughter was given my brothers cremated remains until I could have him without sobbing nonstop. A dispute between my children ended contact. So I called Adam, and his voice closed our deal. He is a wonderful listener, patient, kind and caring. Adam is honest and fair. Attaining the remains of my brother from my daughter required research, and Adam called me every step of the process. He knew I was very sad, and even during his vacation, and weekends, he called me. My brothers ashes are now with me. This is the representation you want. Thorough, reasonable and reassuring. I feel as though I have a friend, and that is Adam Lee.

Assisted Me With a Tuition Issue
Prior to my second year of graduate school I submitted an application with the University of Florida to have myself reclassified as an in-state resident for tuition purposes. My family permanently relocated to Palm Beach in July 2015, so I believed that there would be no issues with reclassifying for the semester beginning August 2016. The UF reclassification policy requires in-state residency for a period of one-year before an out-of-state student can begin to receive in-state benefits. However, the university did not immediately accept my application. Instead, they opted to dispute my residency. Adam was extremely helpful in assisting me with the tuition dispute. After consulting with a few other lawyers in town, I felt comfortable retaining Adam. As a double Gator, I knew that he would have my best interests as a student at heart and also that he had a great understanding of the university's processes and procedures with regards to my tuition issue. Adam was incredibly professional throughout the entire process. He spent a great deal of time researching Florida statutes to ensure that I collected a plethora of documentation that would ensure my appeal would be a success. Furthermore, he was always readily available for a phone call, no matter the time of day or night. I felt that he put me, as a client, first. His hard work paid off. He was extremely sympathetic to my cause and ensured me that he would do everything possible to resolve my dispute. Adam worked against a tight deadline imposed by the University of Florida for the appeal process, but he did not disappoint. I submitted all of his suggested documentation, including an extremely well-written cover letter that he supplied, to the university. Within 24 hours my issue was resolved and I was re-classified as an in-state resident. Without Adam's hard work, I am not sure that I would have been able to receive my reclassification on this appeal attempt. I may have been forced to wait an entire semester until I could again apply for reclassification, which would have imposed financial hardship on me and my family. I am extremely grateful for everything Adam did and I know that if I have another issue in the future, even one that is not related to my education, that he will be the first lawyer that I call. Thanks Adam!

Simply incredible.
As a client of Mr. Lee, I can say that he is amazing. Hardworking, ethical, and compassionate. The issues he worked on for my family were extremely technical and complicated. He left no stone unturned and accomplished EXACTLY what we needed done. He has a great background in criminal law, property, contracts, and family law. He will represent my family for life.

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse Adam Lee. Mr. Lee is an agressive, smart, well-respected north central Florida attorney. He's one of those lawyers who doesn't leave anything on the table in the courtroom, but also litigates his cases with civility and professionalism such that he's highly respected by judges and opposing counsel for his candor and legal ethics. That combination is a powerful force that gets cases done for clients quickly and with the best possible outcome for them. Mr. Lee began his career training with north central Florida preeminent lawyers in the Office of the State Attorney and then in private practice with well known criminal defense and family law attorneys.
