Lee M Vernon, CLS-F


Mr. Vernon is a military veteran who proudly served in the Coast Guard for eight years. Lee was born and raised in Indiana but has called San Diego home since moving there to attend law school. Lee graduated with high honors from Davenport University with a Bachelor of Business Administration.

He gained a passion for family law while working at a veteran’s legal assistance clinic during law school. A majority of the cases Lee handled at the veteran’s legal assistance clinic were family law matters. Lee enjoyed helping clients work through legal issues that were often emotionally difficult.

In December of 2020 Lee was certified by the California State Bar as a Family Law Specialist (CLS-F). In addition, Lee graduated from Pepperdine University's Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution in December of 2020, earning his LL.M. 

Lee is divorced and understands that family law issues can be emotionally and financially draining. As a military veteran, he is very passionate about assisting the military members and veterans in our community. Lee is also very passionate about providing assistance to members of our community that cannot afford legal representation.
