Managing Principal, Chang & Lee in Pasadena
Dr. Lee has been practicing probate since his child was first diagnosed with autism, in 2007. When he realized how underserved that population was, he decided that he was going to start a practice to fill those unmet needs. Today, Joe’s practice includes estate planning with an emphasis on families that have special needs issues, conservatorships, and it has grown into a general probate practice. In this capacity, not only does he help those families that have children with disabilities, but typical families as well. He represents Professional Fiduciaries as well as lay persons in all aspects of Probate, Trust Administration and Conservatorships.
Dr. Lee serves on the Board of Directors of the Pasadena Child Development Associates, a non-profit organization which provides therapy to children who have developmental disorders and is also an Advisor Board Member to Center4SpecialNeeds, a parent support group in the Conejo Valley. He is also involved with the DIR/Floortime Coalition of California, another non-profit which seeks to educate and advocate on behalf of providers of autism treatment and the families that they serve and is a board member at his church. Joe continues to be in good standing as an ordained minister with the Presbyterian Church.
Dr. Lee is a graduate of Seton Hall Law where he received his J.D., Boston College, where he received his B.A. in History and Political Science, he also has an M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary as well as a D.Min. from Fuller Theological Seminary. He is admitted to practice law in California, New York and New Jersey.
