Megan Lee has been practicing law since 2006.  Her main areas of focus are probate and trusts, and business litigation.  She understands that the probate process can be difficult and emotional for her clients.  She takes extra care in explaining the different stages of litigation to her clients and strives to minimize the emotional stress often associated with litigation.  With each case, she carefully crafts a effective litigation strategy tailored to her client's needs and their mutual goals.

She earned her Juris Doctorate from Western State University of Law, and her Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Riverside.

 

Megan was named Super Lawyer Rising Star for 2011, 2012 and 2013 by Los Angeles Magazine, and has been one of Pasadena Magazine’s Top Attorney since 2010.

Personable, Realistic and most importantly RESULTS
We were involved with an extremely complicated, lengthy and difficult trust/probate case. Megan Lee was extremely informative and very responsive with us. As clients, we were unsure of the legal aspects of our case. Megan was very good at explaining the answers to the questions that we had. We were most impressed by her sensitivity to the emotional stress that our case was having on us. We feel that this helped us to get through the five year long case that we had. Lawyers can have a reputation for being distant and non responsive. This was absolutely NOT the case with our dealings with Megan Lee. She kept us informed of what was going on all the way through to the end of our long, involved and complicated case. We would recommend her with a five+ star rating!
