    Attorney Profile

    J. Lee Novelli is the founder of Minneapolis, Minnesota-based Novelli Law Office, P.A. Focusing her practice exclusively on family law matters, she represents clients throughout the greater Minneapolis–Saint Paul metropolitan region. Admitted to practice before all Minnesota and New York state courts, Ms. Novelli has earned the high regard of her colleagues who have given her a 10.0 "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo in recognition of her successful track record and high degree of ethics.

    A significant portion of Ms. Novelli's practice involves the representation of clients who are contemplating or going through a divorce. In this regard, she provides advice and counsel on such related issues as child custody and visitation, spousal and child support, and the division of complex marital assets and debts. Trained in mediation and listed on the State Court Administrator's Rule 114 Neutral Roster, Ms. Novelli's background in this alternative dispute resolution method often comes into play when she is helping her clients attempt to reach an agreement on those matters without having to undergo a lengthy and sometimes bitter court battle. In addition to her matrimonial cases, her family law experience has encompassed paternity establishment and disputes, the preparation and review of prenuptial agreements, and the obtaining of protective orders for clients who have been the victims of domestic violence.

    Ms. Novelli pursued her undergraduate education at The Ohio State University, where she majored in English literature and received a Bachelor of Arts with honors in 1995. She then went on to attend the University of Cincinnati College of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 1999. Ms. Novelli's professional memberships include the Family Law Section of the Hennepin County Bar Association.
