Dustin was hired to set up an LLC and to review a consulting contract. Very patient, answered all our questions, thorough, completed the work in a timely manner and fees were acceptable.
I hired Mr. Lee to establish an LLC, and he did a great job. He answered all of my questions, kept me informed, and is a great guy. I would not hesitate to call upon him again.
“Dustin negotiated the sale of a minority interest in a closely held business. He was wonderful in working with my parents, both of whom had not used an attorney before. Our family is very happy with the value received from the sale to the majority shareholder.

Dustin was very understanding with my circumstances and what I needed to accomplish. He took the time and was very patient with me, in explaining in detail of what I needed to do as a client and resolve my business issues. A true professional and well educated lawyer. He knows his stuff. I would recommend his expertise to everyone.
I called and spoke with Mr. Lee about a situation I was having with a client of mine. Mr. Lee explained the process thoroughly to me, what steps I needed to take and what needed to be done. He took the reins and did everything necessary to help me and my small business. This is a man I needed in my corner and he did just what I needed! If I need an attorney in the future, he will be the only call I make.
I recently engaged Dustin Lee to complete the formation of an LLC for my new consulting business. Dustin was very thorough, prompt and provided good value for the fee he charged. He took the time to walk through each of my formation documents, ensuring I understood both the letter and intent with practical advice. I plan to engage him as business matters warrant and recommend him to anyone contemplating this type of activity.

Even when I was in school, I knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. During high school and college, I learned that I was also interested in, and had a great skill set for being a lawyer. I decided to go to law school – specifically to study business law. After law school, I of course went to work at a premiere boutique business law firm in Houston. I had a great experience. I learned so much and built great relationships with the other lawyers and our clients. I took to heart everything it means to be a great lawyer, great communicator, and a great advocate for a client.
But like every aspiring entrepreneur…. I felt something was missing. If you are an entrepreneur or aspiring entrepreneur, I’m sure you have felt it too. Or maybe you are feeling it right now.
So… I was feeling that unhappy feeling that entrepreneurs get when they are working hard at someone else’s business instead of their own. My feeling was something like, “I love working here, but I want to be my own boss, control my own destiny, and build something great for myself.”
I know others feel the same way. Maybe you do/did too. Or maybe you are or were feeling what many others feel, “I hate this job. I can do it so much better on my own. I’m out of here…”
So with that feeling, I decided to start my own law firm. In the 11 years since I have not regretted my decision. As all entrepreneurs know, there are good times and bad, times when things are running smoothly, and times when it feels like everything is against you. I have seen it all, and I have achieved great personal satisfaction in helping all of my clients along the way.
From Dustin C. Lee, Founder of Ascend Legal Solutions:
I am the President and managing attorney at Law Office of Dustin C. Lee, PC d/b/a Ascend Legal Solutions. When I founded Ascend Legal Solutions, I set out with a specific mission in mind.
I believe that EVERY law firm should be responsive and client-focused.
I believe that EVERY law firm should provide quality legal advice and practical solutions to their clients.
In fact, I believe that those things are the MINIMUM STANDARD for a law firm.
I believe that you deserve more. I believe that you deserve a lawyer that will really get to know you and your business. You deserve a lawyer that you genuinely like talking to… someone that you could see yourself hanging out with on the weekend. You deserve a lawyer that has a genuine connection with you and your business.
That’s what I want to be for you. Seriously… and I want all of those things because I believe that with that type of relationship, I can provide you with a higher level of service than some nameless, faceless paper-pusher in a tall building somewhere.
I hope that you choose to take the next step in building a relationship between us as individuals and between our businesses.
I also hope that you take part in building this firm’s legacy, which won’t live within the four walls of our office, but yours.
For transactional matters like commercial transactions and business formations, we have a very simple process designed to quickly and professionally complete your transactional matters.
First, you will attend a Business Solutions Meeting to determine your needs and ensure that we are a good fit for each other. You will complete a secure online questionnaire prior to the meeting so that we can make the best use of our time together. At this meeting, you will learn about our services, your options, and our fees. At the conclusion of the meeting, if you are ready to move forward, you will sign an engagement agreement and pay the initial invoice (both of which can be handled online).
Next, we have a design meeting regarding your specific matter, such as an LLC Design Meeting or Contract Design Meeting. This is where we really dive in to learn all about you, your business, and the plan and/or documents we will be designing so that we can carefully craft everything to meet your needs. After the meeting, we will carry out the design and draft the documents. You will receive a copy of the documents for your review along with a video walkthrough (if you elect that option when you engage us). We will then answer any questions that you may have and make any necessary changes or updates.
If there is no third party involved, like in the case of a business formation, we will then schedule a meeting to execute your documents if one is needed. For example, with an entity formation, we will schedule your Organizational Meeting.
If there is a third party involved, like in a commercial transaction, we will then follow the course of action you have selected after our Business Solutions Meeting. Sometimes we are engaged only to review documents “behind the scenes” and provide advice, but most of the time we are engaged to negotiate the transaction on your behalf and work up the finalized documents. We can continue working on document revisions so long as negotiations are ongoing, and we can assist with closing the transaction if a formal closing is required.
If you need assistance after the contract is signed, we will monitor key deadlines and performance requirements to keep you updated about the progress and performance of the contract as well as your obligations.
For business disputes, you will first attend a Business Solutions Meeting to determine your needs and ensure that we are a good fit for each other. You will complete a secure online questionnaire prior to the meeting so that we can make the best use of our time together. At this meeting, you will learn about our services, your options, and our fees. At the conclusion of the meeting, if you are ready to move forward, you will sign an engagement agreement and pay the initial invoice (both of which can be handled online).
After we have been engaged, the next step is the Dispute Planning Session. In this session, we really dive in to learn about you, your business, and the dispute that you need to be handled. We will come up with a plan of action to work on the dispute on your behalf, and after the session is concluded, we will move forward with that plan.
If litigation has not yet been initiated, in most cases we will attempt to resolve the matter without having to litigate, as it is the fastest, most efficient, and least expensive way to handle disputes in most cases. If litigation has been initiated, or if we need to initiate litigation, then we can handle that process for you as well.
When you are ready to move forward, whether that be at your initial Business Solutions Meeting or later, we will send you an engagement agreement for electronic signature and an invoice for payment via our secure online payment provider. Once those things have been completed, we will move forward with the first phase of our engagement.
