Allyssa B. Lee helps families navigate the complex changes in their lives by focusing her practice on family law matters such as divorce and child custody disputes, and estate planning matters such as Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Trusts.
When handling both straightforward and contested divorce or child custody disputes, Allyssa’s pragmatic and child-focused approach to counseling you about your legal options and projected likely outcomes allows you the opportunity to make educated and informed decisions about your case based on the facts. Having been through a divorce herself, with two young children, Allyssa knows how emotionally draining divorce and custody cases can be, and how overwhelming they can feel. With Allyssa by your side as a fierce advocate, you will get practical legal counsel and compassionate care at every step of your case.
Allyssa also recognizes that as your family changes, whether through divorce, adoption, marriage, or other life circumstances, you may wish to establish or update an estate plan to handle your assets and designate people who can make legal, financial, and medical decisions for you, if you become unable to do so. She particularly loves working with both families and individuals to create comprehensive estate plans that achieve each person’s goals, whether those are to avoid probate, make it easier for assets to pass to a spouse, or to financially take care of others.
Allyssa joined the firm in August 2021 as a Law Clerk after finishing law school that same month. As a Central Texas native, having grown up in both Austin and Dripping Springs, she felt the pull to go to law school after working for both the State of Texas and the Texas Association of Counties, where she was surrounded by folks who whole-heartedly supported her decision to return to graduate school. After beginning law school, Allyssa spent her time working full-time during the day, attending law school at night, being with her children as much as possible, and studying law into the wee hours of the night. After a lot of hard work, she was licensed and admitted to the State Bar of Texas in May 2022.
Now, in addition to serving as the Associate Attorney at this firm, in her spare time, Allyssa makes her home in Dripping Springs as a single mom to two wonderful children, two cantankerous cats, a goofy dog, and two fish that are amazingly still alive.
