Lee A. Kantor
330 Clematis St. Suite #201 West Palm Beach, FL 33401

Lee Kantor was raised in the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts. It is here where he learned his love for the outdoors and his passion for hiking, mountain biking and blazing new trails throughout the Pioneer Valley. Lee was a member of his High School’s championship basketball team while also pursuing his love of music in the jazz band. The unique spirit and culture of his community instilled a lifelong fascination with analytic thought and the psychology he employs today in litigation.

After graduating Cum Laude from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, Lee went on to attend Loyola University New Orleans School of Law. Lee received awards for creating and maintaining an Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) educational resource website. He also clerked for local law firm of Tusa & Richards obtaining great results for their personal and business clients. The following summer Lee gave back to the community and worked pro bono as a legal assistant for a non-profit group in rural Western Mass that helped to create safe passage and access to the legal system for women in physically abusive relationships. Lee graduated from Loyola in May of 2005 and was admitted to the Florida Bar later that summer.

Since joining the firm, Lee has become an experienced trial attorney.  Lee has garnered a reputation as an aggressive litigator not afraid to take a case to trial before a jury. He has obtained numerous defense verdicts as well as countless favorable settlements for his clients including the Champlain Towers South condominium collapse in Surfside.

Lee has been named a Florida Super Lawyers©, Litigation Council of America Fellow for defense of his corporate clients in auto negligence, bodily injury, commercial property, construction defect, hospitality liability, public entities, state governments, trucking and transportation, windstorm, and workers compensation. Lee was named a 2020 & 2021 Top Lawyer by Palm Beach Illustrated.  Lee is the Managing Partner of the West Palm Beach office and is the chairman of the firm’s Business Development committee.

Lee has a very active family life raising two children along with his wife, Robin. When he is not traveling to soccer tournaments or gymnastics practices, he enjoys having friends and family to his home for loud music and great cooking!  Lee is the vice chair of the Construction Board of Appeals for the Village of Wellington. He enjoys giving back to the community in which his wife grew up and has warmly adopted him as one of its own.
