Attorney May Lee is solo practitioner at Lee law Firm LLC. The mission of her law firm is “to speak up for and ensure justice for the individual.” Born in an abandoned barn in a third-world country as her parents fled from war and genocide, her family’s story of survival is living proof that there is justice in this world. Decades later, she would choose to use the trials of her past to be a voice of empowerment for the people she speaks up for.
Attorney Lee is an educator at heart. She began her professional career as a teacher, then later working in higher education. She eventually pursued law to voice education in the arena of the legal justice system. She began law school while being a mother of five children! Attorney Lee shares this as encouragement that it is never too late to pursue your dreams.
Attorney Lee began her legal career as an Assistant District Attorney at the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office.
