Attorney Profile

Attorney Kara Lee is a founding partner with Lee Lopez Law in Arlington, Virginia. Serving clients throughout northern Virginia, she focuses her practice primarily on family law. Her time and efforts are devoted to helping those who are going through a divorce achieve the best possible outcomes for their legal issues involving child custody and support, alimony, property division, and other related matters.

Throughout the course of her more than 10 years in practice, Ms. Lee has achieved notable success guiding her clients through the divorce process and helping them make the best-informed decisions on the matters that will affect them and their families for years to come. Well-versed in mediation, she strives to help her clients resolve their conflicts and reach agreements without the need for expensive and contentious litigation; however, she will not hesitate to take her clients' issues to court when necessary.

Over the years, Ms. Lee has gained invaluable experience in handling military, same-sex and high-asset divorces along with modifications and enforcements of existing court orders and other post-divorce issues. Recognized for her impeccable professionalism and outstanding legal service, she has earned top ratings from her peers, including a Legal Elite designation from Virginia Business magazine, along with numerous positive reviews and referrals from her satisfied clients. At all turns, she delivers highly personalized, compassionate representation designed to help her clients achieve their goals as efficiently as possible.

Ms. Lee earned both her undergraduate and master's degrees in English from Virginia Tech in 2004. She then attended George Mason University School of Law, where she obtained her Juris Doctor in 2012. She is also a graduate of the intensive Trial Advocacy College at The University of Virginia.

A leader in her legal community, Ms. Lee is the former President of the Fairfax Bar Association, where she continues to serve on its board of directors. She has also served as Statewide Membership Coordinator for The Virginia Bar Association's Young Lawyers Division. She maintains active involvement with several other professional legal organizations, and she volunteers her time and services with the Northern Virginia Pro Bono Law Center.
