Dismissed Traffic Ticket | Amazing experience
Sheldon Lee provides legendary legal services, I’ve had an amazing experience from start to finish working with him to resolve my highly stressful traffic ticket. Sheldon Lee was able to dismiss my traffic ticket and dissolve my worries. I highly recommend to give him a call for your legal needs he is truly an expert in his line of work.

Family Matter Consultation
Sheldon Lee, Esq. was quick, direct and professional. He answered all of my questions and gave me unbiased legal advise about a post judgment family matter. He presented me with several legal scenarios that helped me make a sound decision about whether or not I should re-open the case. I was satisfied with his services and would recommend him to any of my family of friends.

Extremely good attorney
Sheldon Lee was very polite and knowledgeable. He had a very good manner in the court and got done what he set out to. He believed in me and fought for me and got me custody of my son. I will 100% recommend him to anyone. You can’t go wrong. I can’t say enough good about him.

Professional, Prompt, and Genuine
I cannot say enough positive things about Sheldon Lee. First of all, he is extremely professional with a kind nature and genuine personality. He always took the time to listen to my concerns in dealing with a custody modification for my child. Unlike other attorneys, I never felt like I was wasting his time, or that he was trying to push me into making a quick decision. He was always there to answer my questions by e-mail, phone or in person. His response time was so fast (sometimes within minutes) that it made me feel like I was his most important client. I was blown away by this type of service. All of Sheldon's advice regarding the expected outcome of my case was accurate. He helped explain the law related to child custody and helped me to maintain confidence that my case would be decided in my favor (which it was). If you are dealing with a child custody matter, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you consider contacting Sheldon Lee.

Court is scary. Esq. Lee makes it less so.
I live in Florida and hired Mr. Lee to represent me as the petitioner in a spousal support modification case filed in Riverside, CA. There is NO WAY I could have handled this situation without Mr. Lee’s experience, knowledge, and help. Although at one point the other party wanted to compel me to attend court dates in person (traveling cross-country and missing work), Mr. Lee made it so I could appear at all court dates via telephone, and HE appeared for me at every single date the court set. My court documents were always filed on time, he kept me updated consistently and patiently answered all my questions, and was always quick to respond to both emails and phone calls. Even via telephone, going to court is scary. Mr. Lee made the process manageable. Because of Mr. Lee, I received a very fair outcome at trial. (The other party might not agree, but…) If Avvo had a system like Reddit where I could give Mr. Lee gold, I’d guild him 2x. Highly recommend and he is definitely my go-to guy in the future!

Traffic ticket
I got a speeding ticket for driving over 100 mph, for which it is common to have your license revoked. Mr. Lee cleverly kept delaying the court date in hopes that the CHP officer would miss the hearing, which would have had my case dismissed. Even though the officer did appear, Mr. Lee got me off with a smaller charge and saved my license. He was on top of things and kept me informed step by step. When I called other attorneys in the area, who got great reviews, the person who answered the phone insisted on my giving her my credit card and wouldn't let me talk with an attorney first. Mr. Lee, a founding partner in the firm, was happy to talk with me first and explain the process. He was extremely professional. I am picky, and I couldn't recommend him more highly

Excellent Attorney!!!
I was very pleased with Mr. Lee's service. He always came through with everything he said he was going to do. He was never late to court hearings, and always had my best interest in hand. He was very reasonable in attorneys fees also. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking an Awesome attorney.

Honest, dependable, excellent and highly recommended
Mr. Lee will spend the time to explain the divorce process, the issues involved and will prepare a plan of action. He is also well prepared when he goes into court. Divorce is such a difficult thing to go through as in my case and Mr. Lee's expertise and knowledge makes the process a lot less stressful and less overwhelming. Thank you for the excellent representation and keep up the great work!

Honesty & Integrity=Mr. Sheldon Lee is Outstanding!!
Upon first meeting with Sheldon Lee, I was at ease, he is completely comfortable to speak with. Sheldon takes interest in what we have to say provides us with the best options tailored specifically to our situation. Another thing which was rare and refreshing; If possible, Sheldon tries to kill 2 birds with 1 stone in order to save you money. Not a lot of Lawyers out there like that. In the courtroom, he is on the ball, calm, collect and handling our case with much success. I could go on forever but in a nut shell I would recommend him 110%.

Amazing!
I sought out Sheldon Lee for my Family Law case in Riverside, after an epic custody battle began. Mr. Lee is everything you could want in an attorney....calm...knowledgable...encouraging. As a senior associate at Wallin and Klarich (a formidable law firm with over 15 offices and footprints in 6 different counties), Mr. Lee's staff is efficient, extremely available, professional and gets exactly what you need done - requests for paperwork, services, are all done practically within 24 hours or less. Mr. Lee manages his, and your time, efficiently, succinctly, where you can be confident that your retention is not being squandered on random ramblings and unnecessary clerical shuffling. In person, Mr. Lee is like a cool breeze, calm, confident, but not promising you impossible outcomes like a used car salesman. Definitely consider this professional...not only does he stand alone in prowess, he brings with him the respected reputation of Wallin and Klarich.

Simply AMAZING!!
Attorney Sheldon is an amazing attorney that did an AMAZING job at representing me during my divorce. I can't say thank you enough to Sheldon for being patient with me through this ordeal and for being by my side while resolving my divorce case. THANK YOU Sheldon!!

The good will win!
I would like to thank Attorney Sheldon Lee, for all the help I recieved from him at Wallin & Klarich. When I went to Attorney Lee, I had already fired another Attonery. I was going through a ugly custody case and I just felt that nobody was listening to me. When I had my first consultation with Attorney Lee, he made me feel welcomed and really listen to me. When I hired him, I would call to inform him with things that were going on, I always got a response back. My case is now over, with the out come that I wanted. I would highly recommed Attorney Lee to anyone who needs a laywer that is on your side. I would also like to thank Attoney Hung Lyu for all his help with my case too.

Sheldon Lee Dismissed My Charges for Lewd Acts upon Child
I was arrested for felony Lewd Acts upon a Child and Child molesting and hired attorney Sheldon Lee to represent me in court. Mr. Lee was able to successfully and zealously argue that my bail be reduced and that the Victims in this case were not credible and had inconsistent statements when interviewed at different times and Mr. Lee also showed holes and weaknesses in the prosecution's case and a true lack of hard evidence. The Case was subsequently Dismissed in the interests of justice. Mr. Lee is a hard working, and diligent attorney and pays close attention to detail and leaves no stone unturned and that is someone you want on your side. Thank you Mr. Lee, you are a life saver

Superb Representation!
I had multiple outstanding traffic tickets that were over 1 year old. Fines and fees were up into the thousands and I couldn’t get my driver’s license back until they were paid in full. There was absolutely no way I could miss work to go to court. My Wallin & Klarich attorney, Sheldon E. Lee, not only got the cases dismissed, but also got the civil assessments set aside, entitling me to a $500 refund from the court! On top of that, I was able to speak to my lawyer directly whenever I had any questions or concerns. I’m very satisfied with the representation I received, and will be referring my friends and family whenever they’re in need of an attorney.

Sheldon E. Lee Saved Me From Going to Jail Due to Domestic Violence
I was really worried about ending up in jail because of the domestic violence charges against me. My wife was serious about playing the role of victim, and I had every thing against me. I needed someone that would believe in me and would help me fight for my freedom. After my sister recommended that I contact Wallin & Klarich attorneys, I decided to give them a call. They were understanding and extremely professional. They gained my trust, and I am really happy I retained them. Sheldon E. Lee, my Wallin & Klarich attorney, clearly presented my side of the story, and the charges against me for domestic violence were reduced. I am very grateful they helped me win this battle for my freedom. Thank You Wallin & Klarich!

Review E. Sheldon Lee
Mr. Lee was absolutely fantastic. He did a great job defending me in my restraining order issue. He was quik to catch discrepencies in testimony and brought to light issues that would not have come up otherwise which led to my prevailing in the case. He brought out the "truth" that the petitioner was covering up. He was very tactful in the way he demonstrated himself in the courtroom.

Bailed Night Before Court
We hired Sheldon Lee via Wallin and Klarich to help with spousal support. We were strung along for 6+ months doing most of the leg work of gathering data only to have our lawyer bail on us the night before court. So we ended up with a lawyer that knew nothing about the case and had no confidence as a lawyer to boot. I would not trust this lawyer or Wallin and Klarich for any family law matter as my experience was horrible.
