Starting a law firm with Alina Lee: Alina featured on the Lawyer Business Advantage podcast!

Thank you so much for interviewing me for your Lawyer Business Advantage podcast, ! I enjoyed exchanging experiences and hearing your valuable insights into law firm business development!

Quotes from our conversation:

“I really enjoy meeting new people, getting to know them, connecting and building relationships…having your own business is kind of the perfect excuse to do a lot of that.” — Alina Lee

“Either you’re winning or you’re learning. As long as you continue to play the game, one of those things will happen.” —

“It’s totally common to change your law firm name…as your law firm evolves.” —

“It used to be that there was a strong preference for working with a big name. Now, for the first time, there is more of an emphasis on diversity and inclusion.” — Alina Lee

When Alina Lee stepped up to help founder Marian Liou form We Love BuHi as a nonprofit 4 years ago, she didn’t know if they could make it work. They struggled to make ends meet for a long time but they continued to do their very best! They refused to give up and kept going no matter how razor-thin the budget. There were tears at times when they weren’t sure how to keep it up. Now, We Love BuHi is winning awards!

Alina is proud to be the founding board chair of We Love BuHi, a 501(c)3 nonprofit preserving the multicultural identity of Atlanta’s Buford Highway.

Alina Lee — Now a Board Member of the Korean American Bar Association of Georgia (KABA)

KABA has played an important role in my life–its members are like my extended family. I attended KABA’s first ever event at the law firm Nelson Mullins in Fall of 2012. There, I first met one of my closest friends now, Sara Hamilton, for the first time.

I’ve met so many friends and mentors through KABA, such as June Lee, Han Choi, Steve Park, BJay Pak, Seam Park, Vanessa Suh, Greg Shin, and others. 

Today, Sara is the President of KABA and I’m proud to be serving alongside her as a Board Member.

Thank you to the existing Board of Directors for your support and I look forward to working with each of you to support KABA’s mission to elevate the visibility of Korean American attorneys and law students within the Georgia legal community. 

Consider attending a KABA event! We’re a fun bunch! See our calendar at https://kabaga.org/
