Background

Lee focuses his practice on helping clients with their business transactions, including entity formation, corporate compliance, and governance matters, and contract drafting and review. He has extensive experience in corporate income tax and working with flow-through entities. He is also available for estate planning, including credit shelter trusts, wills, durable powers of attorney, HIPAA release authorizations, and advance directives.

While studying at Willamette University College of Law, Lee was selected as the editor in chief of the Willamette Environmental Law Journal, the managing editor of the Willamette Sports Law Journal, and staff editor of the Willamette Law Review. He also served as a judicial extern for the Honorable Judge Chris Garrett at the Oregon Court of Appeals and a research assistant for former Chief Justice of the Oregon Supreme Court Paul De Muniz, both of which gave him an inside perspective and deeper understanding of how judges view cases. He put this experience to good use as executive director of the Willamette Street Law Project, where he worked to provide legal education to at-risk youth.

Outside of the office, Lee is a frequent guest instructor at Western Oregon University’s Criminal Justice department and serves as the commissioner for the City Planning Commission for Lafayette, Oregon. He enjoys playing competitive slow pitch softball, as well as fishing and watching sports, particularly college games coached by several of his family members. As a longtime resident of Oregon’s beautiful wine country, Lee also appreciates local wine tastings.
