Serving Individuals, Families and Businesses in The San Gabriel Valley
The Area's Most Strategic Legal Advisors Advocating with Diligent Representation & Sound Advice

Dr. Joseph Lee, Esq.

Experienced Special Needs and Trusts and Estates Attorney

undefined

I’ve been privileged to have three very satisfying careers that help me serve my clients as a special needs law and estate planning attorney. My experience as a former school administrator helps me navigate complex school systems. I use my abilities as an attorney to advocate for children in need. My training as a minister helps me provide empathy for hurting families. However, being a father is the most important job I’ve ever had.

When my son Danny was diagnosed with autism, it shook my world. I joined the ranks of many parents who have to fight for their child’s access to California’s special education services. Without a competent, compassionate partner, IEP’s, IPP’s, IFSP’s fair hearings, due process proceedings and other processes can be a legal and emotional maze. I am here to serve you and your family.
