About Eugene Lee
Unlike most lawyers, Mr. Lee takes cases to trial and wins them. Over the course of more than two decades, Mr. Lee has obtained judgment for employees in 97+% of his trials and administrative hearings, an unheard-of win percentage. In the process, Mr. Lee has recovered millions of dollars for his clients (past results do not guarantee future case outcomes).
In one particularly difficult disability discrimination trial against the County of Kern in federal court, Mr. Lee as lead trial counsel was able to obtain a unanimous jury verdict on all counts, resulting in a $1.1 million judgment. After the County of Kern appealed a separate loss, Mr. Lee won that appeal as well, resulting in a published opinion and a rare award of attorney fees (County of Kern v. Jadwin (2011) 197 Cal.App.4th 65).
Mr. Lee has dedicated his career to representing the most vulnerable members of society who have been victimized by their employers.
