THOMAS E.

LEES

We could throw up fancy words that could eloquently describe the depth and breadth of Tom’s experience, but that’s not how we operate. Tom’s a fun-loving guy who happens to be pretty amazing at law. Professionally he started off as an electrical engineer working mainly in systems and software. Throughout his life, he has had a passion for music and continues to perform as a guitarist in a local country band as well as in a praise and worship band at his church. He combines his technical skill and his passion for music by repairing amps and other equipment.
