Lee T. Wallace graduated first in her class at Vanderbilt University and with honors from Harvard Law School. She then clerked on the U.S. 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. She has been in trial practice for 30 years, and has handled legal matters in 20 states.

In polling of 24,000 Georgia lawyers, Lee Wallace was named one of the Top 100 Lawyers in Georgia. She has been named a “Georgia SuperLawyer” every year since the poll began, and has repeatedly been named one of the top 50 female lawyers and one of the top 10 product liability lawyers in Georgia. Lee also has been asked to serve on the Blue Ribbon panel that evaluates lawyers for the SuperLawyer award. Georgia Trend magazine has named Lee Wallace one of Georgia’s “Legal Elite.” She is also AV®Preeminent™ Peer Review Rated¹ by Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory, the highest rating in legal ability and ethical standards given by one’s peers.

Lee Wallace trained at Harvard Law School’s prestigious Negotiation Workshop as well as in Harvard’s Mediation course. In law school, she became convinced that mediation was a better way to resolve cases, and she organized a symposium on alternative dispute resolution (“ADR”) and completed her third-year independent work on the topic of ADR. The paper she wrote was published in a prestigious legal journal. Lee is a registered neutral with the Georgia Commission on Dispute Resolution.

A registered mediator, Lee helps people resolve high-dollar, hard-fought cases, without having to go to trial. In her practice, Lee has handled cases involving such matters as whistleblower/qui tam/false claims act claims, product liability, medical malpractice, personal injury, auto products, contracts, mass tort, class action, and auto and tractor-trailer wrecks.

Lee is a past President of the Georgia Association for Women Lawyers, as well as a past chair of the product liability section of the Georgia Bar.

They founded a ministry through their church to host events for patients and their families.
