Laurie M. Lee, Esq.

Attorney/Owner

Laurie has practiced business law since 2003. She has experience with many types of business transactions and enjoys solving complex issues. She has worked at law firms in downtown Jacksonville and has handled many high-level business transactions.

Laurie has always been fascinated with business. She likes the way systems are created to bring multiple working parts together to form a functioning business. She likes working with business owners and helping them set their goals and contributing to their achievement. She likes creating and building, which led to her decision to start ELEVATE Business + Technology Law.

Laurie became interested in technology law when many of her customers started using technology in their businesses. Now, technology is a large part of her practice and she enjoys the challenge of keeping up with the rapid changes in technology and in this area of law.

Laurie married her college sweetheart, Andy, and they have two head-strong daughters. Laurie and her family spend a lot of time sailing on their boat in St. Augustine. She has taken up photography and doesn’t quite consider herself an “amateur” photographer… yet.

Prior to law school, Laurie was a middle and high school history teacher in St. Johns County. She relies on her education background to make sure her customers understand the legal framework of a business transaction. She writes many educational articles and participates in speaking engagements.

“I founded ELEVATE Business + Technology Law because I wanted to be different. I wanted to feel better about my profession and how we service our customers. Having an entrepreneurial spirit, I decided to create a new kind of law business… one that focuses on better customer service and increased education. I’ve represented all kinds of businesses over the years and it’s important to me that my business customers see that legal advice is valuable.” – Attorney Laurie Lee
