  • 100% Successful Chapter 7 Fiings
  • Top Chapter 13 Attorney Filer in the Inland Empire.

In 2004, l graduated from Loyola Law School and began my legal career working for a commercial litigation law firm under the mentorship of a well recognized Los Angeles SuperAttorney. I was trained as a “paper tiger”, drafting countless motions and discovery on multi-million litigation matters.

In 2006, I opened my first law office and served the greater Southern California community as a consumer trial attorney on behalf of injured individuals and families. I have successfully litigated hundreds of cases and recovered tens of millions of dollars on behalf of the injured.

Notwithstanding my own personal success the partnership failed which caused me to file my own bankruptcy. At the time, the 2008 economic recession was in full force and like many local residents, I lost my home, business and credit.  Undeterred, I rebuilt my legal career representing only debtors through thousands of Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcies and have since become the top bankruptcy attorney in the Inland Empire.Consequently, I have purchased my own new home, several cars even my own commercial building, all while I have a bankruptcy showing on my public record.

It’s become my life mission to help my clients discharge his client’s debt and help rebuild their credit so they can do the same. Having experienced the redeeming and life-rebuilding benefits of a bankruptcy, I now help others do the same. I’ve rebuilt my life after my discharge and I can help you do the same.

Paul Lee is an excellent bankruptcy attorney!
Paul Lee is an excellent bankruptcy attorney. My first impression of him was very good. He did not keep me waiting for our first meeting, spent a considerable amount of time discussing my options and the BK process. Once the decision was made to proceed, he walked me right through the process step by step, always putting me at ease that everything would go through as planned. He's very good at detail and excellent at responding to my questions by phone or email during the process and after the discharge. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking a competent attorney to handle their bankruptcy. Thanks Paul!

outstanding service
Paul and his Staff kept us informed throughout the entire process. After having a negative experience with a previous attorney who took our money and never filed our case, we were very cautious on selecting the right attorney for us. After several consultations, the shoe fit once we met with him. He is very personal and such a wonderful wise attorney. As a family who was in a tight spot he understood our situation as a family man himself. It is very hard to come by a trustworhy and honest attorney these days.

Responsive, caring and thorough
I appreciate the work Paul did to help us with our BK. He helped us clearly understand the options we had going in. He and his staff worked with us and were available to us every step of the way. When Covid-19 hit and business dropped, he helped us to re-evaluate our situation and worked to get our case converted from Ch 13 to Ch 7. We appreciated the way Paul conveyed that he really cared about us and our situation. At no time did we feel judged. In fact, he always helped us see the positives of the situation at hand and gave great advice for how to recover from the situation. He went far and beyond what I had expected.

The best Bankruptcy Attorney
I really want to say thanks Paul, for closing my chapter 13 that I had for 12 years somehow I couldn’t close it and he did it. Not only was he kind, but he also made the stressful process easy. Regardless of how hard the case was he continuously tried throughout the pass months without making me feel worried. Paul has a love and passion to help people.

Exceptional lawyer
As my BK lawyer, Paul did an amazing job handling my Chap 7. His knowledge and expertise in BK law is superior. My situation was complicated and confusing and he made it extremely simple. From start to finish, Paul was there, (in person), to make sure everything was done right, the first time! He made me feel like a person not a client. My Chap 7 is now successfully behind me and I can now breathe easy again and get on with a new beginning. Paul Lee and his staff are a 10!

Best chapter 7 guy around
Painless! I expected an interrogation and several forms, paperwork...but it was nothing like that. Paul and his team did all the work. He also let us pay in installments -- and that was so helpful. If anyone I know needs to go through this like me, I'm sending them to Paul.

The Most Amazing Bankruptcy Attorney and Team You'll Ever Find
Paul and his team are amazing. Their professionalism and courtesy throughout the entire Chapter 7 process was amazing. I had no idea bankruptcy could be so complicated, but Paul and his team made me feel comfortable the entire time. They followed up with me and were super helpful and transparent. I would recommend Paul to anyone without reservations. You won't find a better attorney anywhere in California.

He's Awesome!
Paul Lee and his staff were very helpful and efficient. He will personally answer any questions and even return your calls, which isn't always the case with Attorneys. If you are contemplating Ch.7 or Ch.13, don't go anywhere else. You will be truly satisfied in choosing Paul Lee to represent you.

I'm a single mom with 3 kids, after a long road of issues, Paul was open and honest and gave me the greatest advise. I waited almost a year before I did business with Paul. I appreciated that he never pressured me to in anyway. THANK YOU TEAM PAUL LEE!!! Lisa

Paul could not make the process any easier than what he did. He handled the whole process very professionally but with a smile the whole time.

Don't go anywhere else
I contacted Paul Lee and received an appointment the same day. I was dealing with a high 6 figure bankruptcy and needed the best. After meeting with him and having a warm fuzzy feeling, I contracted with him to perform the bankruptcy. He outperformed my expectations. Not only did he get me a very low settlement, I was able to avoid bankruptcy and settled with my creditor without any negative items showing on my credit. All of this was done in a few weeks. I don't see how you can do any better.

Outstanding
I am very happy we had Paul Lee and his team working for us on our Bankruptcy. They made is very easy and took the stress away from the very 1st meeting. Everything was smooth from start to finish. He explained everything completely and made us feel very comfortable with the process.

Correction
My last review was based upon some miscommunication. I went back and looked at everything Paul did for me over the last two years. I had a very complicated case and things continually changed for me over the course of me waiting to file. We ended up not filing, however, Paul did make every effort to help me. He's a highly competent attorney and a nice person. A glitch in the email delivery caused me to become frustrated, however, I should have called when I thought my emails weren't going through. If I ever do decide to file, I will return to Paul. Thank you.

Exceeded in care and contact for my bankruptcy!
Paul and his team far exceeded my expectations of what a bankruptcy lawyer was. I was always kept informed of what was going on during each step of the process, whether by phone or email contact. I was always given plenty of time to prepare for meetings and/or court dates, and was always told exactly what I needed to bring each time. His fees were more than reasonable, and he even accepted a payment plan for me because I couldn't pay in full at the time. Even after the final court meeting, I was still contacted by Paul when my bankruptcy case was finally discharged (a few months after the final court date). Would highly recommend him to anyone needing this type of service!

Paul Lee and Calif Bankruptcy Relief. **Excellent ***
Paul and his team are amazing. They made the process so easy. I was so scared and embarrassed but they made me comfortable, listened to me and helped so much. They are friendly, respectful and I would recommend Paul to any and everyone. He will not steer you wrong and will look after you waling you through the entire process. I hated for my case to end because I wouldn't see them anymore. You will not go wrong with Paul!!! ABSOLUTELY 5 stars

Paul Lee is the man!!!!!!
My husband and I just finished the bankruptcy process. Paul Lee and his staff were amazing. I truly felt they cared about our situation. Paul was very professional and went out of his way to help us. Because of him, we feel like a weight has been lifted off our shoulders. I have heard horror stories about bamkruptcy processes, so I was very skeptical. If I would have known about Paul Lee, I would have filed years ago. And as much as I love Paul, I also feel the need to mention his assistant, Ruth. She was so pleasant to deal with and was always there to answer my questions. In the beginning of trying to see if we should file with Paul, it was because of a conversation I had with her that actually made me tell my husband that Yes! Paul Lee and his staff are the way to go!! Very very happy with them.....thanks again Paul and Ruth, you all were the answers to our prayers♡

"Paul Lee is a top-notch bankruptcy attorney. He cares about his clients and has the expertise to handle any case. I have worked with him on several cases and am always impressed with his creativity and his vast knowledge. Even though his services are in high demand because so many friends and family members of former clients send him referrals, he still manages to give special attention to each individual unlike many other law firms. Mr. Lee is a champion for the consumer and an excellent attorney. If you find yourself overwhelmed with debt or being harassed by a creditor, I strongly recommend contacting Paul Lee."
