Details

The owner of the Columbia-based firm Lee Injury Law, attorney J. Tyler Lee, Jr. has been practicing in South Carolina since 2006. A renowned personal injury attorney, he focuses his practice on workers' compensation, premises liability, car and motorcycle accidents, trucking accidents, dangerous drugs, slip-and-fall accidents, and wrongful death.

Graduating as a lawyer in 2006, Mr. Lee commenced his professional journey as an assistant attorney general and prosecuted cases of cybercrime against children along with domestic violence. He worked for more than a decade in a prominent law firm in the state where he gradually climbed the career ladder to the position of a shareholder. During this tenure, he worked closely on a wide variety of personal injury cases, including automobile accidents and social security. With the experience and knowledge garnered from these years of practice, he established his own firm to give personal attention and reliable legal guidance to his clients.

Mr. Lee graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2003 with a bachelor’s degree in English. In 2006, he secured his Juris Doctor from the University of South Carolina School of Law. Even as a young law student, he clerked for reputed law firms and the Honourable Judge James E. Lockemy Jr. at the South Carolina judicial department (presently chief judge of the South Carolina Court of Appeals).

Many prominent publishing and legal associations have recognized Mr. Lee's acumen in the legal landscape, including being peer-review rated as AV Preeminent* through Martindale-Hubbell. He has received a perfect score of 10 on Avvo and was featured multiple times as a Legal Elite of the Midlands by the Columbia Business Monthly. Over these years of practice, he has successfully handled more than 2000 claims on a wide spectrum of cases from minor injuries to catastrophic injuries and deaths, through a number of trials and mediations.
