Lee Winston joined Michel Gray Rogers in 2020 and practices in the area of property tax consulting, property tax litigation, mediation and arbitration. Prior to joining MGR, Lee practiced commercial and real property litigation in Dallas, Texas. Lee is a graduate of the University of Texas School of Law, where he was the editor-in-chief for the Texas Environmental Law Journal and associate editor for the Texas Journal of Oil, Gas, and Energy Law. Prior to law school, Lee graduated from Texas A&M University with a Bachelor of Science in Economics.
In a very short time, Lee has distinguished himself as someone with a quick aptitude for property tax valuation, as well as property tax law, including appellate litigation. Lee’s most recent appellate court success was on behalf of a client whose property tax consultant made a mistake on her Freeport Exemption application. Harris County Appraisal District refused to recognize this clerical error, which increased the taxpayer’s property tax liability by over $125,000. After another firm was unsuccessful at trial, Lee filed and won an appeal at the 14th Court of Appeals.
During law school, Lee worked as a legislative intern for Texas State Senator Judith Zaffirini.
A member of the State Bar of Texas, Lee is licensed to practice in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit and the United States District Courts for the Northern District of Texas, Eastern District of Texas, Southern District of Texas, and Western District of Texas.
