Innovative labor lawyer for emerging unions
(Bar admission pending)
Aaron Bryce Lee (he/him) joined the firm in 2023. Born in Seoul and raised by Los Angeles, Aaron’s lived and work experiences have furthered his belief that organizing and uplifting the working class are crucial in imagining a world in which marginalized populations, disproportionately Black, Brown, and other people of color are liberated from the exploitative forces that preserve a racially and economically unequal society. He hopes to contribute to a rejuvenated wave of class consciousness and solidarity with which workers may demand better wages, working conditions, security, and dignity.
Aaron is a graduate of Yale Law School and was a member of the Worker and Immigrant Rights Advocacy Clinic. He has helped defend asylum and naturalization applicants and argued in federal court on behalf of a nationwide class of DACA-eligible people. His experiences in the labor movement include supporting organizing and advocacy campaigns of nursing home, home care, and federally qualified health center workers in SEIU 1199NE; property service, airport, and fast-food workers in 32BJ SEIU; and seafood industry supply chain workers and pallet assembly workers through Centro Comunitario de Trabajadores in New England; and Amazon warehouse workers in the Amazon Labor Union.

In addition to his work with the firm, Aaron received a Justice Catalyst Fellowship and works as an Organizing Fellow housed at The Action Lab, a movement organization in New York City. He is privileged to work intimately with various worker centers, unions, and other community and labor organizations in the New York Metro Area and convene opportunities for intergenerational and interdisciplinary learning in the labor movement. By seeking to redistribute the knowledge necessary to organize the workplace and foster creative and actionable strategies for workers to win improved wages and working conditions, his project aims to create ideological and physical spaces for nascent and experienced worker-organizers, activists, journalists, attorneys, and academics to learn from each other and refine messaging, organizing, and legal tactics.
In his free time, Aaron enjoys cooking stews, exploring food spots, playing and watching basketball, and listening to R&B, hip-hop, jazz, and experimental genres.
