Christopher Lee understands that financial hardships can affect honest, hard-working people. Growing up in a very blue collar family and rural area of Indiana , money didn’t always come easy for his parents. The struggles his family faced in his childhood made a significant impression on his business philosophy today.
Mr. Lee considers it a privilege to serve clients from all walks of life in his law practice. In doing so, he aims to provide every client with the same service he would provide a member of his own family. His mission is to get to know each client individually and provide the most sound legal advice to help resolve their financial troubles. His compassion for the struggles that his clients face provides him with a solid foundation to guide them through this difficult time.
“This bankruptcy practice has given me the opportunity to directly impact the lives of many people,” he says. “Without attorneys like me, they would be left to their own devices to deal with creditors….Fortunately, this profession gives me the power to fight back and protect the victims. I feel truly fortunate to have this chance.”
Mr. Lee has helped hundreds of individuals save their property, eliminate their debt and return to a financially healthy future. He also enjoys giving good people suffering through difficult times a second chance. His mission is to show people that bankruptcy is not the end of the road but, that it is a new opportunity to turn their financial life around.
“A good, top-caliber lawyer knows that filing for bankruptcy is not the end of your financial life, it’s only the beginning,” he stresses. “These people have had their tough times, but bankruptcy ends that …It relieves the pressure instantly and gives you a fresh start. I believe that everybody deserves that second chance.”
When Mr. Lee isn’t fighting for financial freedom for local residents, he enjoys his free time spending quality time with his family. He enjoys taking his family to the lake to go fishing, and engage in various water sports. Christopher Lee is an active member of his church. He attends every school or sporting event his children participate in and serves in the Dad’s club at his daughter’s school. He is also an advocate of volunteer work and often donates his time to his local church and schools.
Mr. Lee graduated Indiana State University in 1999 with a Bachelors of Science degree in Political Science. In 2003, he obtained his J.D. from Texas Wesleyan University School of Law, located in Fort Worth.
