About Lee

In my over 30 years of practicing law, I have learned that each client's case is very likely to be the most important thing in his or her life at the moment. I represent each of my clients with this principle at the top of my concerns. I also believe that I must be available just to talk to my clients if they need a sounding board. I always try to be a counselor at law, not merely a lawyer. I charge reasonable, fixed fees, so all of my clients know what their costs will be before I begin my representation. All of my fees are promised in writing and are signed by me and my clients. My internet sites and my biography are this one and the LinkedIn profile which appears below my AVVO profile in a search. I hold an "AV" peer rating from Martindale-Hubbell, which means I am viewed by other attorneys as having, "Preeminent Legal Ability and Highest Ethical Standards." and I hold a "9.8 out of 10" rating from AVVO, which means my rating as an attorney is "Superb," according to AVVO's rating system. In my spare time I am a professional baseball and softball umpire. I am also an Emergency Medical Technician, and I serve with the Mount Laurel, New Jersey Emergency Medical Service. I was born in Trenton, New Jersey and attended Trenton public schools K to 12. I graduated from Trenton Central High School in 1976, first in my class. I received my bachelors degree at Rider University, magna cum laude, and my law degree at Syracuse University. I was an ethics prosecutor for the Supreme Court of New Jersey, Office of Attorney Ethics for 20 years. Now I defend lawyers and judges accused of ethics violations. I also give expert opinions in ethics and legal malpractice cases. I also represent candidates for the New Jersey bar in character and fitness matters. I worked for eight years as a criminal prosecutor at the county and state levels. I was also a prosecutor and defense attorney during my 24 years as an active-duty and reserve member of the United States Air Force. I handled cases from simple drug possession to homicide. I have been a judge in courts-martials. Before joining the Middlesex County Prosecutor's office, I worked as an associate at a medium-sized law firm in Westfield, New Jersey, and represented a diverse commercial and private clientele. I served the United States as a member of both the US Army and Air Force Reserves, and I retired as a Lieutenant Colonel 2011 after 24 years of service. I held a variety of increasingly responsible positions as a military lawyer, culminating as Assistant Ethics Administrator in the office of The Judge Advocate General at the Pentagon. I am also admitted to practice before the US Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces (1986); the US Army Court of Criminal Appeals; the US Air Force of Criminal Appeals (2003); and the US District Court for the District of New Jersey (1984).
