Soo Yeon Lee, of counsel attorney with Mauck & Baker, has made the welcome transition to becoming a partner at the firm.
The attorneys at Mauck & Baker take their mission to do work for the Kingdom and make disciples very seriously. Rich Baker said it this way: “Practicing law in this firm is ultimately a spiritual calling and challenge. With our firm it can often be spiritual warfare! To truly achieve God’s purpose for this firm, a deep active faith that sees law as a calling and being equally yoked with all involved is crucial. 2 Corinthians 6:14 states, ‘Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?’ That why Soo’s a great fit.”
Whit Brisky added, “Bringing Soo aboard is a testament to her unity with God’s calling and her dedication to expand the legacy of Mauck & Baker. As a member of the Christian Legal Society, Soo has shown that her faith and practice of law must be integrated to accomplish God’s purpose for our clients, firm, and families.”
Her journey to becoming a lawyer began at Handong Global University in South Korea, a “non-denominational university committed to following Jesus Christ…to train global leaders who will change the world.” By practicing law globally in the United States and meeting the needs of her community, Soo has done just that.
John Mauck, a founder of the firm praised Soo, saying, “I think the best lawyers have a love for their clients and for our world that is inspired by Messiah Jesus and is coupled with a keen analytical mind. Soo has both!”
Soo had the last word: “Beyond proving my value to clients, other attorneys, or to the court, I am trusting in God to give me all I need,” she said. “God has given me the words in Deuteronomy 11:10-12 to define my practice of law: ‘The land you are entering to take over is not like the land of Egypt, from which you have come, where you planted your seed and irrigated it by foot as in a vegetable garden. But the land you are crossing the Jordan to take possession of is a land of mountains and valleys that drinks rain from heaven. It is a land the Lord your God cares for; the eyes of the Lord your God are continually on it from the beginning of the year to its end.’”
