YOUR PROBLEMS CAN BE OUR PROBLEMS. OUR FIRM WILL DO OUR BEST TO HELP YOU FIND A SOLUTION.

If you are facing the possibility of a divorce or child custody contest, that worst thing you can do is wait until you receive court filings before you speak to an attorney. 

If you are hurt in and it was not your fault, don't speak with the insurance company before you contact an attorney. Any longer than that you may be waiving your rights or giving the insurance company all the information that they need to close the case on your claim.

If you have a problem it becomes our problem when you become a client of our firm. Don't wait until your rights have expired or Statute of Limitations have run.

we will do our best to provide an accurate evaluation of your case.

Awesome
Look no further. The Lee Legal Group will stand and fight for what is rightfully yours! You get timely updates of what going on with your case. They will text or call you personally! They know the Law… and are very good at it! They believe that each person deserves to be given justice and they are the voice for us! Daniel and his team worked relentless to make sure our case was taken care of. Their process is efficient to deliver the soonest possible result. Their efforts are exceptional and compassionate for me! They are like family, willing to give great advice I would recommend any consults with them about any legal matters I would need in the future.

Toughest Lawyer in Town! I don’t usually do reviews but this one is definitely worth it! I was put in an unfortunate situation and sought help from Daniel and his Team. His dedication, support and compassion for what he does definitely shows in how he fights for his clients. I can’t thank him enough for helping me during my time of need.

Personal Injury
When it comes down to the wire, with 5 seconds left on the clock and the score tied, you only want one person holding the ball. With the clock winding down, Kobe Bryant, the black mamba passes two guards, two seconds left on the clock, a crossover, he pulls up, SWISH! The Lakers, once again, CHAMPIONS!!! Daniel Lee, second to none, handled my case diligently, efficiently, and expediently. The Kobe Bryant of Lawyers and his team ensured that my case was resolved in a qualitative manner. Daniel Lee and his team, are a SLAM DUNK!

One of the best you'll ever work with
Daniel is a real pro and has the talent, ability, and skill to handle any case you can throw at him....and he'll do it with confidence. I would put Daniel up against any of the top lawyers in the game and in fact, he has done it. Not to mention he has the people skills, resources, and the tactful personality to go after even the toughest situation. If you need a lawyer Daniel and his team are the ones to go with hands down. No better person or lawyer out there. He'll stand behind you even when the chips are down and provide logical, practical and solid advice. This is the team you want without a doubt.

Daniel Lee Never Stopped Fighting
Daniel Lee helped me with a child support case. I could not have asked for better representation. He was always one step ahead of where he had to be and fought back against every obstacle thrown at us. He remained fair and was able to explain what was happening and why every step of the process. If I am ever in a legal situation again, I will turn to him first for advice.

Life Saver and I Win
I am currently involved in a very complicated custody/divorce case, and the case already more than 3 and half years. During the period I had 2 attorneys and my ex had 2 attorneys and 1 child amicus and child protection services involved and called 911 many times, presented at the Court many times and filed countless motions etc, even the Judge already changed, and the case still not be solved. Then I am so lucky to have Mr. Daniel Lee as my attorney as the 3rd attorney. He is very nice and patient to listen and help me analysis the case and study the files and collect the evidence etc. And except the office appointment, he is not only contact me by email and also by phone and text message to meet my convenience and even discuss the case over the phone in the later evening. I am very appreciating his family does not complain me for the interruption of his family time. He also has a very fabulous team to help prepare the documents, evidence and very organized for so many clients / cases that he presented. My ex fabricated statements (he is a Phd of Geophysist and very smart, but not a good and honest person, I can say he could easily to obtain the Attorney License if he would like. So my attorney, Mr. Daniel Lee has a super cunning and insidious Plaintiff. But after Mr. Lee’s careful study of my case , professional and meticulous preparation and rich experience in Court , as a result of intense arguments , at the end (Today) I WIN!!! During the arguments, Mr. Lee kept polite and refute my Ex by proving unbeatable evidence to refute my Ex false statements and evidence, and Mr. Lee step by step questioning and rebutting made my ex’s true form be revealed and the truth be revealed in front of the Judge. I told my family and friends that Mr. Lee is my life saver, I know the thanks no longer enough to express how grateful my children and I to him. My case is belong to family law, but I talked with other his clients during the waiting time in his office, I knew he also present for client in criminal and business cases. And these 5 of his clients that I met in his office all very satisfied with him and all of them had previous attorney. ( I asked 2 of his clients phone numbers and talked with them over the phone due to we don’t have time discuss the cases and Mr. Lee’s experience and knowledge, I believe it is very important for every one to hire an attorney) . I recommend consult several times before sign the contract with an attorney and do you best to ask other clients or obtain their phone numbers in the office or Court (Now it’s not easy due to most of case by Zoom). (That’s my experience, I hope it could help others and to avoid detours. )
