Chris Lee is an Associate Attorney for the Law Offices of Samer Habbas & Associates. Before the firm, Chris earned his undergraduate degree in Crime, Law & Society at the University of Oregon. He then went on to achieve his Juris Doctor (JD) at Chapman University Dale E. Fowler School of Law. While in school, he interned at both plaintiff and defense personal injury firms. Aside from earning his JD, Chris also received a certificate in Advocacy and Dispute Resolution, and was a quarter-finalist in the Golden Gavel Oral Argument competition. After law school and passing the bar, Chris joined a workers’ compensation defense firm as an attorney. Thereafter, Chris joined the firm as an Associate Attorney.
Chris’ passion for pursuing a career in law originates from being brought up in an area where most people could not afford lawyers, resulting in a lot of people never fighting for the compensation they were entitled to. Given this upbringing and experience, Chris desires to be the voice and frontline for those who have been injured, and will aggressively advocate for the life and compensation that his clients deserve. Chris specifies in various practice areas such as personal injury, premise liability, auto accidents, and workers’ compensation.
