Sunjae Lee was born in South Korea, and came to the U.S. in 1995. Living and educated in America’s heartland – Kansas and Ohio – his diverse background allows him an empathetic understanding of his client’s needs and goals – a vital skill in his legal tool kit. Fluent in English and Korean, he employs his language and legal skills to efficiently facilitate the desired results for all his clients. His areas of practice include divorce, immigration, debt resolution, and real estate transactions. He is licensed to practice law in the State of New York, and also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for both Southern District of New York and Eastern District of New York.
Mr. Lee joined JCKLAW in 2015 to focus on the legal needs of everyday people–to best represent and protect the interests of people going through debt issues, or divorce, to bring together the loved ones from overseas to the U.S., to help people enjoy the benefits of citizenship and resident status, to assist with families buying their first home or business.
