Lee English


It is not a matter of how much I have to do for my clients, but how much I can do.

It is all about people.

Lee embodies the Service First approach and strives for excellence in client service. He understands that there is a human element that underscores every transaction or application of the law and that interaction with others is often determinative of successs. With a solution-oriented approach to his clients' needs, Lee provides a comprehensive assessment of his clients' rights and obligations at the outset of an undertaking. When those rights and obligations are challenged, Lee is a proponent of low-level conflict resolution, while advocating to preserve his client's interests.
