Our Legal Experience

The lawyers at John W. Lee, PC boast over 70 years of combined legal experience. Moreover, with a team of six attorneys on staff and five conveniently located offices spanning across Hampton Roads – Virginia Beach, Hampton, Newport News, Chesapeake, and Norfolk – our reach extends far and wide. Additionally, this extensive coverage ensures that our attorneys adeptly represent clients in all cities and counties within the Hampton Roads region.

The Importance of Face-to-Face

Nowadays, some lawyers offer to represent you via phone or mail, and they will even conduct the initial consultation with a client over the phone. However, we believe a lawyer needs to meet with a client face-to-face before they go to court. There is no doubt that face-to-face meetings between a lawyer and a client help ensure there is no miscommunication. Additionally, once our lawyer has met with you face to face, we will communicate with you from time to time via email or phone. However, we feel it is very important for the lawyer to meet with his client in person in the beginning. Naturally, if you live out of state, we will make an exception and conduct a phone meeting, but we feel this is always the second best way to handle legal representation.

Our Beliefs

We firmly believe that everyone deserves the right to legal representation in court. As the old adage goes, ‘the man who represents himself in court has a fool for a lawyer,’ a sentiment that holds truer today than ever before. Additionally, navigating the complexities of legal proceedings without skilled representation is akin to attempting to ‘cut through all the red tape’ solo, an almost insurmountable task.

Moreover, we have a proven track record of success in various legal areas including bankruptcy, divorce, criminal defense, traffic law, child custody, child support, and personal injury cases. Furthermore, our dedicated attorneys offer complimentary initial consultations and flexible payment plans for most legal matters.
