"I have spent the majority of my legal career practicing in large law firms, one with more than 600 lawyers. After opening my own shop 7 years ago, as a litigator, I knew I needed help. But it had to be someone who took my clients' lawsuits as seriously as I. Someone whose legal analyses and analytical insights allowed me to go toe-to-toe with elite business law firms. I have used Lee Dunham for the past five years and for these very reasons. Not only is she a superb lawyer, I can sense her commitment in every phone call and email. I simply could not fulfill my obligations to my clients without her. She has allowed me to continue practicing at a very high level."—William Sitton, Charlotte, NC

"I have worked with Lee Dunham on several Bankruptcy matters over the last few years. She is a delight to work with! Terrific writing, research, analysis and knowledge. Lee has been like having a working partner with an office next to me. Lee's last research project for me in August, on short notice, allowed me to settle an administrative claim on very favorable terms for my Client. Lee's research and case analysis was instrumental in helping convince the Trustee that my Client's claim was worth far more that the Trustee was willing to offer. As before, I could not be happier than working with Lee."—Ron Miller, Columbia, MD
