Michael Yee, Esq
Sacramento estate lawyer, Michael Yee, founder of the Yee Law Group, comes from a long line of Sacramento pioneers, professionals who served their community. His great-great-grandfather was Dr. Wah Hing (born Yee Fung Cheung), an herbalist who was dedicated to helping those in the community using the traditional Chinese remedies he brought with him when he arrived in California during the Gold Rush. Dr. Hing was well respected by the Sacramento community and became even more well known when he saved the life of then-first lady of California Jane Stanford, the wife of Governor Leland Stanford.
Michael’s grandfather is retired dentist Dr. Herbert Lee, who served the Sacramento community for 54 years, as well as served as the official dentist for two former California governors, Pat Brown and Ronald Regan.
