Matching the needs of the client with the attention to detail
Lee is a trustworthy man who has the best interest of his client at heart. He aspires to understand what may be the clients goals and explains the law within the given situation in order for the layman to have the proper expectations. Lee and his staff are very detailed oriented and very responsive. Expect questions that will make you think about what you need to consider and know. Than expect to get information regarding the alternatives. I have worked with Lee on employment agreements and my corporate papers. He is my resident agent for my corporations and has worked on my will and trust paperwork where is has shown all the best of his legal mind, his steady questioning and his caring personality. He has consulted with me on real estate questions and a variety of additional matters. I would highly recommend Lee Drizin and his law offices.
