Attorney Eric Lee
Eric Lee is an immigration attorney with a focus on appellate advocacy at the Ninth Circuit and Board of Immigration Appeals. Mr. Lee’s legal efforts halted the 2017 deportation of a Los Angeles father who was on his way to drop of his daughter at school when ICE arrested him; the case was one of the first internationally-recognized setbacks for Donald Trump's nationwide attack on immigrant rights.
Among his other high-profile victories, Mr. Lee secured permanent residency for an undocumented spouse of an individual impacted by the Adam Walsh Act, despite immigrant advocates calling this "virtually impossible." In addition, Mr. Lee successfully reopened a matter of a father wrongfully convicted of a felony, thus removing the immediate threat of deportation. Mr. Lee also won back the permanent residency of a Southeast Asian immigrant detained by ICE in 2018 and scheduled for deportation to a country of which he had no memory. In 2018 he served as an attorney-monitor of a Texas child detention center as part of the Flores settlement and helped reveal the abuse of child detainees by Southwest Key.
Mr. Lee has represented clients from six continents, and none have been deported. He has never lost a case that he was involved in before the Circuit or District courts. He joined the Michigan bar in 2015 after graduating cum laude from the University of Minnesota Law School. He is fluent in Spanish.
