“Lee has a tremendous breadth of knowledge in the real estate field. He assisted me with a case which involved combing through a great deal of information, and he was very thorough in navigating his way through the sea of documents with a good understanding of the facts. He was always mindful of trying to be as efficient as possible by focusing on the most relevant information rather than delving into every single document. I would absolutely work with Lee again in the future.”
