Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the name of your law office?

Answer

We are “Law Office of Joshua Y. Lee”.  However, there are some postings and places where we show up as “Law Office of Joshua Y. Lee & Associates”.  This is not correct.  We do not wish to confuse our clients or potential clients but both lead to the right address at 1440 N. Harbor Blvd., Suite 900, Fullerton, CA 92835 (our main office).  However, we also have a satellite office at 7755 Center Ave., Suite 1100 11th floor, Huntington Beach, CA 92647.  Call or email us with additional questions.

Q: What kind of law do you practice?

Answer

Our Practice Areas page outlines our main focus areas. Along with both plaintiff (employee against large corporations) and defense side (small to mid sized business owners) employment law, unlawful discrimination, retaliation, wrongful termination in violation of the FEHA, wage & hour / meal & rest break claims in violation of California Labor Codes, we also form business entities LLC / Corporations, draft contracts, employee handbooks, operating agreements and by-laws, and different agreements and we also have success with typical auto-accident personal injury matters.  We also perform basic estate plans wills and trusts for some of our clients.  Call or email us for a free consultation.

Q: What other languages do you speak?

Answer

Joshua Y. Lee, Esq., is the lead attorney and he speaks both English and Korean.  When necessary, we hire translators or other professionals who speak Spanish and other languages.  If you have specific language requirements, we will either find someone to assist us or recommend another law office more suitable for you.  Contact us with more questions.

Q: What does Of Counsel mean?

Answer

An attorney on our website who is “Of Counsel” means that they are not a full-time employee but rather someone whom we work with on an on-going basis and with whom we have a trusted relationship. They are independent attorneys we associate closely with and hold in the highest regard.

Q: Do you represent employees or employers?

Answer

We would never knowingly engage in a conflict of interest with any of our former or present clients. We hold ourselves to the highest ethical standards and duty of confidentiality and abide strictly by the attorney-client privilege. We represent mostly plaintiff employees who have a meritorious matter with supporting evidence so that we may move forward in confidence against large corporations.  However, we work with small to mid sized businesses where we assist in instituting procedures and best practices such as an employee handbook as well as defend some matters for quick and cost effective resolution.  A free consultation should readily reveal whether or not we may represent you.

Q: How do you determine your fees?

Answer

We sometimes offer free consultations when representing plaintiffs of contingency employment or personal injury matters. Where business or personal needs require advice, reviewing documents, setting up a corporation or LLC, drafting contracts, or similar situations, we must charge a fee for our time.  Our fees are reasonable and we take a lot of factors into account.  We will always be up front about any potential costs and ensure you are well aware ahead of time and also agree to them before proceeding forward.  Contact us to discuss your situation and figure out a fee structure that might work best.

Q: Do you take referrals?

Answer

Yes. In fact, referrals are always welcomed and a preferred way of getting new clients.  Because of the rules of professional conduct and code of ethics that lawyers are held to, we have unique arrangements for a) lawyers and b) non-lawyers. Contact us for further details.

Q: Any advice regarding Wrongful Termination, Discrimination, Harassment, and other Employment Law matters?

Answer

Call (714) 616-4466 or email us for a free a consultation.  These are very fact specific matters where the value and overall probability of success depends heavily on the evidence as well as timing.  There are statute of limitations considerations, thus it is advisable that you speak to an attorney sooner rather than later regarding these type of concerns.  Also, if you are already being sued and recently got served, it is best to contact an attorney immediately.  The longer you wait the less time your lawyer has to figure out a strategy and preserve any rights you may have.

Q: What should I do after an auto-accident?

Answer

Call (714) 616-4466 or email us for a free a consultation.  Our Practice Areas page does a good job of outlining what to do.  However, the most important thing is to take care of your health.  Without ensuring proper attention to injuries, nothing else matters.  Ensure you and your loved ones are safe and get medical attention.  Leave the legal problems and worries to us.  Part of that means to contact an attorney as soon as possible and don’t talk to anybody.  What you say may be used against you and could hurt your case without you intending it to do so.

Q: Client testimonials?

Answer

Yes. We do not usually ask for written testimonials but always appreciate a good meaningful review of our services.  You may find some of our clients’ reviews here:

Note: These reviews are not an advertisement or in any way an indication, prediction, or guarantee or warranty of the outcome of your specific case.  Every case is unique and the facts are always different which greatly affect the outcome. 

Q: Do you have a blog or Facebook page?

Answer

Yes. From time to time we may post some interesting cases, legal information or other interesting reads on our Facebook page.  The postings are not legal advice, advertisement or solicitation of any kind.  We only practice in California and the postings are merely provided for information.  Legal advice can only be ascertained with your own attorney with whom you’ve signed an engagement agreement.

Q: What are your office hours?

Answer

Our office is typically open Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm. We sometimes meet after hours when absolutely necessary or on weekends. However, because of our schedule and the needs of various matters, there is no telling when we will be in the office. That is why we take client meetings by appointment only. If you have documents to pick up or drop off, you can always leave them with reception on the 9th floor of our building.  To set up an appointment, either give us a call at (714) 616-4466 or shoot us a quick email at info@lawandevidence.com or use any of our “Contact us” forms on our website.  Leave your name, contact info, and a brief description of your needs and someone will get back to you.
