Michael Lee

After his graduation from the Virginia Military Institute, Michael became a police officer, and later an investigator. He obtained his law degree from the University of Richmond and his master’s in business administration from the College of William and Mary. After several years of practice, Michael ran for Commonwealth’s Attorney in Colonial Heights, Virginia, and was twice elected as the City’s lead prosecutor. He returned to private practice and now uses this experience to help clients navigate the criminal justice system.

Michael’s work as a police officer, radar instructor, and breath test operator gives him real-world experience in the investigation and prosecution of cases that you don’t get from the outside looking in. He has been in the field, conducting homicide investigations and in the courthouse directing grand jury proceedings. In 27 years of practicing criminal law, he has prosecuted and defended a broad range of criminal matters, from misdemeanors to rape, robbery, murder, and everything in between throughout the Greater Richmond/Central Virginia Area.

Michael has received extensive training as a prosecutor, having attended both weeklong, invitation-only classes offered by the Virginia Commonwealth’s Attorneys’ Services Council, as well as two weeklong training classes at the National District Attorney’s Association in Columbia, South Carolina. These courses provided specialized training in the investigation and prosecution of homicide, drug and arson cases.
