Jen Grondahl Lee

My name is Jen Grondahl Lee and I am a bankruptcy and veterans benefits attorney. I help my clients examine their financial situations and provide long-term solutions for protecting the future and reducing stress in their lives.


Before moving to California, I grew up in a very small town in North Dakota. My home town is Berthold, North Dakota and has a population of about 500 these days. My high school class had 17 people in it (10 boys and 7 girls). I have also lived in Hamburg, Germany; Milwaukee, Wisconsin; Houston, Texas; and Richmond, Virginia.


I earned my law degree (JD) from the University of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia. Prior to law school, I worked for 8 years managing different teams with the insurance industry. I decided to open my own firm because of my background in business and wanting to have direct contact with the people who need legal help the most.


When I am not helping clients or learning as much as I can about the law, I enjoy reading, spending time with my 1 year old daughter, Ingrid, and playing with my dogs. We have 4 dogs and we are also involved in dog rescue, so there is often a 5th foster dog in our house when a dog needs to get out of the shelter to a temporary home.


In addition to my law degree, I have an MBA from the University of Phoenix and a B.S. in Business Management from the State University of New York – Empire State College.
