Paul Lee

“There is no perfect justice, just as there is no absolute in ethics. But there is perfect injustice, and we know it when we see it.”



Paul has over 22 years of experience in construction defect litigation, condominium law, commercial/business litigation, and real estate law. He has assisted homeowners associations obtain multi-million dollar settlements, represented landlords in lease disputes, and represented contractors and sub-contractors in contract disputes.

Throughout his career, Paul has worked with clients to develop an appropriate strategy within their budget. Clients are intimately involved and kept up to date regarding their matter.

Paul lives in San Mateo County with his wife and two sons. He enjoys reading, cycling and spending time with his family.
