Ernest Lee

Ernest Lee was taught loyalty and hard work from an early age. He was born in Ft. Bragg NC the fifth child of CWO Major Lee Jr. and Lucille Lee. Ernest’s father Major was an active duty member in the 82nd Airborne at the time of his birth. At the age of two, the Lee’s moved to Ft. Bliss Texas where Mr. Lee Sr. was transferred after joining the U.S. Army Missile Command there. Lee Sr. retired to St. Louis MO where he purchased a laundromat and dry-cleaning business. Soon Lee Sr. owned a chain of laundromats and dry-cleaning stores in the St. Louis area.

Much of Ernest’s growing up years were spent in the St. Louis area. He attended University City High School and then the University of Missouri at St. Louis. After graduating from college, Mr. Lee went to work for and managed the family laundromat and dry-cleaning business.

After gaining the experience of running the family business, Ernest decided to become an attorney. Ernest was following in the footsteps of his sister, Irene, also an attorney. Ernest attended the University of Missouri at Kansas City School of Law, where he graduated in 1999. Having loved the southern California lifestyle since his youth, Ernest decided to move to California to practice law. Ernest began his practice in January 2003, after being licensed to practice in the state of California in December 2001. He practiced at the law firms of Martorella and Associates and Simpson and Brenner in San Diego before striking out on his own in 2006. Since then he has concentrated on Personal Injury, plaintiff’s practice, criminal defense work and in protecting consumers from misrepresentations and scams in the marketplace.
