This award, affectionately nicknamed the “Ollie Award,” is presented to a person who has invoked the spirit of commitment, contribution, loyalty and trust for the betterment of the entire construction defect community. Mr. Lee was nominated by several members of that community for his extensive experience in and commitment to resolving construction defect matters. Members of the construction defect community who are interested in voting for one of the nominees for the 2021 Ollie Award can do so here. The deadline is September 1, 2021.

Mr. Lee has more than 25 years of experience mediating, arbitrating and litigating complex commercial, construction, insurance and personal injury matters. As a mediator, he has helped resolve hundreds of matters. He is a founding member and managing shareholder of Lee, Hernandez, Landrum & Ingle Attorneys at Law, which has offices in Arizona, California, Nevada, Utah and Washington.

JAMS is very happy to hear that David has been nominated for this award, and we believe he is incredibly deserving of this honor. He is a dedicated member of the construction defect and alternative dispute resolution communities, and we are honored to have him on our panel.
