Monique Lee became aware of injustices in the world while growing up in Baltimore City. But it was a middle school teacher’s comments about Monique’s passion for helping others that pushed her to pursue a career in law.
She attended Coppin State University in Baltimore and received her Bachelor of Science degree, cum laude, in criminal justice. She went on to earn her Juris Doctor, cum laude, from Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School. Monique has practiced law for 10 years, and she enjoys protecting her clients and being a voice for people who don’t otherwise have one.
Monique’s proudest accomplishment as an attorney was when she received a favorable result for a client in a major Social Security disability case early on in her career. The case required years of persistence on her part. It went all the way to Federal Court and was even featured in the Baltimore Sun.
A Baltimore native, Monique is a die-hard sports fan and loves the Baltimore Orioles, but she also cheers on the Miami Heat and the Dallas Cowboys.
