Non-compete contract
I was in a tough situation at work, having received a great job offer that conflicted with an existing non-compete contract with my current employer. Mr. Lee took the time to discuss my situation the same morning that I called; he informed me what my potential options would be in the event that I took the job and contested the agreement. It was great to speak to someone that was so knowledgeable of the legal processes involved in a restrictive contract dispute. With his advice I was able to make a decision that I knew would be best for me in the long term. I will definitely contact him again to review any future contracts before signing.

Honest review for Kyle Lee Lawyer
I would like to start by saying that I am very thankful for Kyle and his team without him, I don’t believe I would’ve been able to be successful in my case out come. I hate that during our time Covid was a major factor, because I know that a in person court setting, he would’ve been able to really give it to the opponents in their face. The only thing that I will say is that the follow up/update process could be more informative to the customer, as sometimes with these type of cases your wondering what’s going on. I can’t stress enough when I say TRUST THE PROCESS people! Kyle will do his best to deliver on his word. In closing I will say thank you again Kyle for everything I will always be grateful! I hope to never be in a situation again with an employer but if so I know who I am calling KYLE LEE LAW!!

Tenacious and True Representation
From the onset of my case to the very end, Mr. Lee listened and provided guidance and gave his honest opinion of the potential outcomes. He always responded timely to inquiries about my case and provided clarification when needed. His "common sense approach" and tenacity made the case move much smoother than anticipated. He was unwavering in his approach and provided the kind of representation that many attorneys should envy.

Best Attorney Ever!
My right to FMLA leave was unlawfully blocked by former employer and I was let go under the ‘vail’ of COVID19. I have been an administrative professional for over 20 years and this time I decided I was not going to just accept it walkaway with my head down because Florida is a right to work state and I felt like there was nothing I could do. One night I stayed up to the wee hours of the morning researching employment attorneys online and found Mr. Lee and contacted his office the next day. They scheduled a free in office consult for following week. Having worked as a paralegal in a law office, I can tell you that this was a very unique experience. It was like I was meeting w him in his living room. Both he and his legal assistant both sat and talked with me and listened. He even got on the phone with a colleague to run the case by him as well. After over an hour Mr. Lee confidently said ‘yes - let’s do this!’ and accepted the case. He confirmed that what my former employer did was illegal and he was confident in bringing a suit against them. For the first time in my professional life, I felt validated. Mr. Lee chose to stand up and fight for me and my family and for my rights as a long time dedicated employee. Regardless of the outcome, I will forever be grateful to have him on my side.

Won my Appeal with DEO
I was denied Unemployment Benefits from DEO after being unjustly terminated from a 10 year position within my company. After consulting with Mr. Lee, he took my case, confident of a win in which we were indeed successful! Mr. Lee's confidence & professionalism gave me much needed relief during the process. I highly recommend this firm to those that may need fair & skilled representation within Employment Law.

The BEST
Almost immediately after meeting with Kyle, I knew I was going to hire him to represent me in my case. He clearly explained the process from start to finish and did not give me false hopes or unrealistic expectations for the resolution of my case. My case was resolved in just under 3 months and I am very satisfied in the resolution of my lawsuit. I would definitely recommend his legal services to anyone needing a Labor/Employment Law attorney.

Awesome Lawyer and Person
Called Kyle to help resolve an employment issue that I was having with a previous employer. Not knowing what to do since I had never had an issue like this, he walked me through every step and kept me updated with everything that was going on. He was Super knowledgable about my employment rights and what kind of case I had. I hope I never have to use him again (since I do not want any employment issues) but if I do, I will definitely call Kyle! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!

The Wind Beneath My Wing
This was my first time in a major accident and I’ve had no clue what to do. I called him bc I couldn’t make it detail his car that weekend and he came by the next day to check on me to see how I was doing (I was in bad shape of course). He set up for me to see the doctor and therapy sessions at DMG in Brandon (highly recommend them). I was able to get some money for my car and for the accident. I know I got on his nerves (though he’ll never admit it Lol) but he was very friendly and professional. Someone I’ll always look up to. I’ll definitely use him again if I’ll ever need him in the future.

Very Informed Attorney
Great client and attorney communication. Kyle Lee knew and effectively applied every aspect of employment law for my best interest, resulting in a fast settlement recovery, (less than 2 hours), not counting the final paperwork completion by the other team, which was beyond our control. All in all, I had a very positive encounter with the Lee Law Firm.

The most amazing dedicated Attorney I have hired in my life.
Kyle was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when I felt I had no options when I was wrongfully terminated from my previous employer. I thought my case appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed nigh on impossible. Not only was he able to defend me from an unjust accusation, his calm and empathetic demeanor offered emotional succor to myself and my family when my income had just vanished. He was able to see me immediately in his office. He took charge working on my case immediately. Kyle Lee settled my case in less than 20 days and treated me and reassured me just as I was part of his family and no different than just being a client. My children and husband are eternally grateful for not only his service, but mostly his dedication and passion to help fight for his clients to receive justice I hereby recommend Mr. Lee and his team without reservation.”

Thank you Kyle
Kyle took on my case without hesitation and made use we understood the process up front. His updates throughout the process were timely and relevant. Once we agreed to a settlement he stayed on top of the former employer to ensure a timely resolution. Thank you, Kyle

Kyle stepped up when no one else would!
My case was complex and unique with multiple state and federal laws in scope. After months of getting the runaround from other lawyers, Kyle eagerly stepped up to take it on! He persevered through nearly a year of avoidance from the defendant. In the end, Kyle was able to recover a large sum of money owed to me! Thanks again Kyle!
