Firm Overview

Our Law Office has been helping people with the hard questions for over 25 years through our deep understanding of bankruptcy, tax law, and family law. The firm is a family owned and operated business serving Northern California. You are not just a number at our office. We make it a point to meet with our clients personally.

The focus of my practice is to assist people during trying times. People generally come to me with problems. I help people work through these problems in a way that allows them to move on in their lives.

Example cases

Recently discharged $1,200,000, consisting of underwater home investments, medical debt, and credit card debt for a client through Chapter 7 bankruptcy.

Recently increased court ordered child support for a client by 300% after discovering the client's ex-husband was hiding many assets to avoid paying his rightful share under California law.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

I am willing to review documents prepared by clients.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I am willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves if it benefits their financial situation.

Christie Lee

I started my career by working as an associate attorney at a mid-sized Central Valley firm. After that experience, I decided to strike out on my own and worked as a solo practitioner for a few years. Recently, I have mixed the best of both worlds by working at Thomas Hogan Law Office, where I have the independence to work on my own cases and also get the benefit of working with a wonderful team of paralegals, legal assistants, private investigators and other attorney's to bounce ideas off of.

I am an immigrant from Korea. Learning English was a difficult task for me; however, I persevered.

My strengths are detail and perseverance.

Personal interests:

I enjoy running and being around my family.
