Christopher Lee has been my family's lawyer for many years. We trust him implicitly. In that time, he has handled everything from litigation to finalizing an estate. His expertise and compassion are unparalleled. His breadth of knowledge in the law is immense, he is thoughtful and careful, yet takes care of our needs quickly and consummately. He is devoted, works hard, and has always gone the distance. I recommend Mr Lee unconditionally.

Christopher Lee was and is a blessing for my family. Anyone having difficulty with a Vulnerable Adult situation needs Chris Lee!
Chris is knowledgeable, professional, detailed and personable. He took so much stress out of the lives of our family members and was successful in court beyond words. He was completely prepared and organized during court proceedings and was quick on his feet with reasoned and rational responses to the opposition which he articulated to the Judge.
To anyone reading this review I urge you to consider giving Christopher Lee a call. It turned out, for our family, to be the best phone call ever!

I think Chris is absolutely fantastic. As a newly minted attorney I was mentored by him. It was not happenstance. He wanted to help a young attorney out and offered his assistance. That is the type of person he is. He taught me to bring my best no matter what. He once told me, "Don't rely on me to look over your work product. When you bring it to me, it should be ready to be filed." Not only is he a fantastic attorney, he is a wonderful person. He has a lot of heart, a quick wit, and a wonderful sense of humor. Thank you Chris for seeing past my usefulnessness as a junior attorney and taking the time to take an interest in my professional growth.

I've had the privilege of knowing Chris Lee as my supervising attorney at a prior law firm we both worked at. He is one of the attorneys who has made a lasting significant impact in my growth as an attorney, and I credit him for helping shape me to become the attorney I am today. He sets high standards for himself and those who work for him as he cares about his work and is a fierce advocate for his clients. He is highly efficient, laser-focused, straightforward, and not afraid to tell you like it is and make you better for it. Plus, he's got a wicked sense of witty humor. I fully recommend him without reservation.
