Felt very confident, I was in good hands
Filling for bankruptcy can be a humiliating and painful process; hiring a bankruptcy lawyer can be intimidating as well. Attorney Lance Lee made us feel comfortable, calmed our nerves and answered all our questions from the start. He is very easy to get a hold of always have the time to pick up the phone and talk to us and has continuously kept us updated. We filed our case two years ago with him and the process was seamless, so patient, always willing to answer questions and go beyond the call of duty . After working with Atty Lee, we've learned so much about ourselves and how to make good economic decisions. It has been a great experience.

Very knowledgeable Attorney
Mr Lee did a very good job in helping me with my chapter 7. I didn't know if i could qualify for chapter 7 or not; I was very stressed out, but Mr. Lee showed me my options step by step and he made sure that I understood each step of the way. He was very accessible, so when I had concerns he answered back very quickly. When I met with him, it was always one on one, no other people in middle which makes communication very effective. I highly recommend Mr. Lee to anyone who is struggling with idea of bankruptcy. Mr. Lee is very knowledgeable about these issues, he will lead you all the way. If you choose Mr. Lee, you won't be disappointed.

If Integrity was an Attorney, it would be Lance!
Unfortunately, at the age of 21, I was made aware of my horrible debt by little notice of my wages being garnished and my car being repossessed at my place of employment. Before reaching out to Lance I had called several attorneys and none of them really explained my available options, they all just wanted me to file a Chapter 13 immediately. I tried one more attorney which ended up being Lance. My mother used my identity and my credit. I was told to press charges for identity theft or file for bankruptcy. When I met with Lance, he suggested that I actually file a Chapter 7. Lance explained, due to me being a single parent, with no support, and a good paying job; that Chapter 7 would allow me to support my child financially, start rebuilding my credit within a few years into my bankruptcy, and by time it’s discharged, I would be able to enjoy a great credit score and financial freedom. I’m am so glad I found him. I can’t imagine where I would be today had I listened to the other attorneys and tried to make payments and support myself/child the entire time. From 18-27 a lot of adults struggle to manage their credit and funds. This for sure was me. My bankruptcy discharged literally around the time I started to become responsible with finances and now I have all 3 scores over 750, a savings account I didn’t have to touch during the pandemic, and now I’m actively searching to purchase a home. I’m now 31. Lance is an attorney that truly evaluates your situation, helps you understand the process you will go through, his communication was great even after concluding everything (I actually still reach out about certain things that I feel he may be of assistance to this day), he also takes into consideration your future! Not just the present or past! Lastly, I just want to say the car that was repossessed, Lance had it back to me by time I started my next shift. I am forever grateful for his services, I honestly believe had I not had his assistance, I wouldn’t be in a healthy place today.

Very Professional
If you need a bankruptcy lawyer that is professional, willing to answer any questions, and is always willing to help call Mr. Lance Lee. It has been a great experience working with Mr. Lee. I was afraid of filing for bankruptcy but Mr. Lee made the bankruptcy process simple, painless and took care of everything. Always answered my emails and phone calls. I can’t thank him enough for his professional work. I would highly recommend him. Thank you so much Mr. Lee.

Great, Knowledgeable Attorney -BK
My wife and I worked with Lance and it was a great experience from start to finish. Citizens like us have lots of questions back-to-back, Mr. Lee is only an email, phone call, or text away from responding quite fast. Brilliant guidance and advice throughout the entire period. 100% recommend him absolutely no regrets. Thank you again, it was a pleasure working with you Sir!

Amazing Experience
I was represented better than I could ever imagine. I moved to Seattle without knowing a sole, so when looking for a bankruptcy lawyer, I did a lot of research and emailed some questions back and forth to various attorneys. Lance’s website was a huge help during my decision process. Lance L. Lee was amazing at carefully explaining the process and my options regarding my benefit. During the entire process, whenever I had a question, I would send Lance and email and his prompt replies were always a nice surprise. Lance went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure we were set for court and made the entire process seamless. I would advise anyone looking for great, honest, competent, precise, and non-judgmental attorney to look no further, Lance L. Lee is your man!

Best. Lawyer. Ever.
Lance was recommended to me by another attorney and I am SO glad I called him. He is extremely thorough, detailed and VERY patient. I asked him a ton of questions. I have terrible anxiety and I was so nervous I often asked the same questions more than once. In court I swear to God if I asked him to hold my hand he probably would have. I can't thank him enough for all of his help and I highly and wholeheartedly recommend him.

He was able to work with me....
I am a US Air Force disabled veteran, suffering from severe PTSD and anxiety issues relating to my military wartime service, public communication and professional interaction are extremely tough for me and usually are avoided all together. Working with Lance is an entirely different experience and was nothing but positive interactions and positive results. This is my second time using Lance Lees legal services, I wouldn't use anyone else. You can not go wrong with choosing Lance - he's compassionate, considerate, thorough, accurate and really does care about you as a person, and the money in your pocket.

I found myself in a position where my only alternative was to file a bankruptcy. Lance met with me and explained every step very cleary. He was available by phone and email when I had questions. He told me how court would go. It happened just as he said. If your in need a great attorney for an affordable price, Lance Lee is the way to go.

I worked with Mr Lee 2 times and was very satisified. He is very knowledgable and answers your phone calls or e mails quickley. I would referr him in a heart beat. He is also very nice.
Posted by anonymous | April 15, 2014
Responsive, knowledgable - patient.
Lance did not handle our initial Chapter 13 filing. He inherited our case from our attorney who retired soon after, which means that Lance didn't even get paid to handle our case. We encountered some complications along the way. It was almost like we filed too early because we had issues come up after filing. He's been an extremely patient partner along the way. He's been along side us now for 4 years. He continues to give us great advice and evaluate our options as we navigate to completion. My hope would be that you never have to go through the emotional roller coaster of bankruptcy but if you do you'll need a guy like Lance.

Outstanding Bankruptcy Attorney
Lance handled my Chap. 7 very professionally and expeditiously. He was always very responsive to each and every one of my concerns throughout the entire process. He's a very thorough individual, who always displayed his extensive knowledge about bankruptcy and his client's emotions in these regards. I'd recommend Lance very strongly to anyone seeking a Bankruptcy Attorney.
