Young Lee grew up in the suburbs east of Toronto. Young and his family had immigrated from Seoul, Korea in 1968. Young graduated from high school as valedictorian, the University of Toronto and Osgoode Hall Law School.
After law school and call to the Bar in 1989, Young practised in civil litigation. In later years, his practice and interests became more rounded in a general practice being counsel to many businesses and individuals. His clients have included banks, sports organizations, medical professionals, businesses and individuals of every kind. In the past, he has contributed to the communities close to him and has served as a vice-president in the Korean Canadian Cultural Association.
Young enjoys managing problem solving for his clients and has a wide variety of experiences from the courtroom to the boardroom that give him a wide array of skills to apply to every challenge.
Young has a wonderful adult son, who's graduated university in the USA and is starting a career (not in law LOL).
