Lee is an excellent attorney, kind, generous, and assertive. He gets results. I hired him for my personal injury case and he did an outstanding job. I highly recommend Lee to anyone with a personal injury claim. He is a superb human being.

Lee is the best attorney a person could have. He is personable, compassionate, thorough, smart and funny (which really helps when things are tense). He genuinely cares about his clients and is honest about what one should expect in all aspects of the legal proceedings.
I have had the unfortunate experience of needing an attorney for 2 car accidents, and I was fortunate enough that I had Lee to represent me in both circumstances. The aftermath of these things is disruptive and distressing and working with Lee made the process much easier to navigate. I always felt I was in the best of hands and I am deeply grateful for his kindness and professionalism.
It is clear that Lee is a deeply respected attorney among his colleagues in the legal community. It is a reputation that is well deserved. He treats everyone with dignity and respect and has the ability to make the legal system seem more humane when having to deal with in from a position of vulnerability. We are very fortunate to have Lee in our midst.

I started out with a different attorney after my car accident and it felt like I was getting the run around because he didn't believe that I had that great of a case. Fired him and Atty Lee Atterbury was recommended by a good friend. I knew I found the right attorney after the first 5 minutes of our initial meeting. He listened to everything that I had to say while his assistant took notes. He understood that it was just the physical injuries that I was dealing with, but it also had to do with the emotional stress that came with my car accident. It didn't matter how big or small my case might turn into, he was concerned about me and my family and what we were going through right at that time. He told me what exactly he thought what might be in store for us during the long process that was coming my way. He explained what doctors I should see and went on to tell me to keep notes on how I was feeling each day during the process.
When the next steps came, he walked and talked us through each one. When we were frustrated and confused, he was there to keep us headed in the right direction and helped to keep our spirits up because it is a long, drawn out process.
Whenever I felt that I needed to sit down with him and go over things, he was there to sit down not only with me, but with my daughter, who happens to be an attorney, too. He listened to her concerns and questions and was happy to answer her questions regarding the case since she is not a personal injury attorney. She felt informed, which in turned helped me.
When it came to the end of the process, Lee was very honest with his opinion as to what we should do and why he felt it was the right thing to do. He wasn't out for what he was going to get, he was there to make sure we got what he and we felt was fair for everything that we had gone through.
Last, but not least, he always made me feel as if I could just sit and talk and if tears came, he understood. His casual atmosphere, appearance, and easy-going attitude made me feel as if I was just sitting and talking to a friend, but I knew he was very professional when he needed to be and had my best interests in mind when dealing with the other side. I never felt intimidated by an attorney in a suit, which is exactly what I needed and wanted. He never talked down to me....he just talked to me. Such a great man and attorney.
