About Renee

Learn Renee’s areas of practice.

Licensed for over 20 years, attorney Renee Lee has done “a little bit of everything” in general legal practice before concentrating on Family Law over a decade ago. That diverse experience allows her to be more effective when business, real estate or land use issues arise in a family law matter.  

Renee is adept at finding creative solutions that avoid litigation and its stresses on a family but is a vigorous advocate for her clients when the only avenue for resolution is in the courtroom.

"I am honored to be a voice for those who need one. I help level the playing field when my client feels overpowered or unsure in a relationship."

Renee earned her master’s degree and J.D. at the University of Washington. Originally from New York, Renee now considers herself a Washingtonian. She enjoys theater, spending time with her family, and running with her rescue dog, Cora.

Very knowledgeable, effective, and supportive attorney
Renee is a very talented litigator. We worked with Renee for almost two years, and she continues to support our family years later, as questions arise. While working on our case, she was very knowledgeable, responsive, and reasonable. She always remained calm, but stood her ground in court - and ultimately helped our family prevail with a life changing outcome. Even at the toughest times, she remained measured and professional. She is very dedicated to helping her clients and achieving the best possible outcomes, and also remains grounded and realistic in regards to case resolution.

Great Service
As heartbroken as I was that my marriage was ending, the first person I knew I had to contact was Renee Lee. She helped me out in a prior case. She is professional, honest and knowledgeable. Even though my circumstance was out of the state, she did give me some very practical advice. I would recommend her and her staff.

Angel Counsel
I hired Renee during a very challenging time of my life. I struggled with trusting anyone. For a while, I did not know where to turn or how I was going to regain my personal power again and protect my family. I call her my "Angel Counsel" because she really is that special. There is nothing she cannot handle and any state of crisis I was faced with, was quickly soothed away by her calm demeaner, strong knowledge of law, and outstanding skill with reaching fair and just solutions. Renee's adherence to professional ethics are of the highest caliber and she represented me with firmness, poise, and grace. She inspired my full trust and confidence every step of the way and because of that I was able to step into life without fear again. Renee showed me that "Good" can win in the end.

Divorce sucks
This has been the most stressful, annoying, devastating, and heartbreaking experience of my life. Renee has been there every step of the way advising, guiding, supporting and making sure I felt like a priority and had answers. My ex-husband fought this process and did every shady, petty, and unethical thing he could think of, and Renee made sure that I was protected and got a fair deal. She also listened to a good deal of meltdowns and never once made me feel crazy or that I was wasting her time. No one wins in a divorce, and I will never be ok with the outcome due to the unethical actions of my ex, but Renee made sure I came out whole.

A family law attorney that treats you like family
When you think of a lawyer, you don't typically think of someone who helps you stay centered and confident in the middle of the storm. However, this is precisely what I encountered from Renee Lee. I think the thing that makes Renee different, in my humble opinion, is the key factor of her actually caring for her clients. She genuinely desires the best outcome for her client and goes above and beyond in all of her efforts. I could have chosen any team for my case, however I strongly feel that if I had worked with anyone except Renee, my case wouldn't have turned out as well as it did. Renee helped me to stay focused and to maintain an optimistic outlook, educating and guiding me along the way. This in turn gave me strength to push forward in this difficult time in my life, and led to a favorable conclusion to my case. I highly recommend that you also choose Renee Lee for your Family Law needs, you wont regret the decision.

Calm professional
If you are in the unfortunate position to need a divorce lawyer, I couldn't recommend anyone higher than Renee. Renee helped me get through this ordeal, and even during 2020, without losing what is left of my mind. Renee's humor and willingness to listen to me rant, then calmly guide me off the ledge means way more than she could ever know. It was easy to tell she was always in my corner, and gave me great advice even when all I wanted to do was chew on someone's head. She would also listen to my needs and chew on the opposition's head when it was necessary.

Attentive attorney, always available
Renee is easy to talk to, even about difficult subjects. She walked me through a divorce and parenting plan. I have recommended her to others, who are also pleased. It's worth a call!

Such a pleasure to work with!
Renee was always very professional to work with and she really felt like a close friend through this process. Renee always advised me in a manner that kept me in line when I got a bit unreasonable; however, she was always ok with going to bat for me if I felt strongly on the matter. She is very organized and always remembered the small details on my case. I had never been through a divorce before but she kept me on the high road since there was a child involved, maintaining my integrity even when things starting getting pretty nasty from opposing council. Thank you Renee for the successful outcome for my case .
