Laurie Lee, The Legal Dept for Service Professionals
Laurie Lee started her career as a history teacher but after a conversation with an advisor reawakened her childhood passion for law, she switched focus going all in on her pursuit of a law degree. Laurie graduated from the University of Florida, Levin College of Law with honors in 2003 and has practiced business law since becoming a member of the Florida Bar that same year. Her love for creativity, independence and optimistic life-view made practicing law on behalf of the small, service-based business a perfect fit.
The Legal Department evolved out of her desire to occupy an uncommon space in the legal industry. She wanted to share knowledge and create long-term relationships with clients as their trusted advisor changing the narrative of attorney-client relationships. Laurie’s deep understanding that relationships are essential to the success of the business owner; whether it’s relationships between owners, clients and customers, or community partners, a business must develop and adopt good business practices. That is precisely what The Legal Department exists to do. While service professionals are helping others, Laurie and her team are helping them – grow their businesses stronger, put infrastructure in place, and buffer against the conflict and pitfalls that can harm their reputations and livelihoods.
