Floyd

Partner
Breit Biniazan

Before joining Breit Biniazan, Lee Floyd spent a decade defending some of the country’s largest and most influential corporations. From pharmaceutical companies to national automotive manufacturers, Lee worked in the trenches with impressive battalions of attorneys and seemingly unlimited resources. Lee was the first female partner in the products liability group of one of the nation’s leading law firms and the youngest partner in that firm’s history. In 2019, she was one of only ten lawyers selected nationwide to join the prestigious Products Liability Advisory Council’s as a Future Leader. During this time Lee was recognized consistently: by Super Lawyers® as a “Rising Star” and by Best Lawyers in America® as “Ones to Watch.” She has received national recognition by Benchmark Litigation as a partner in the Product Liability Firm of the Year and is the only attorney in Virginia to be recognized on their “40 and Under Hot List” list five years running. On paper, she displays the kind of career that many attorneys aspire to achieve.

But that wasn’t enough for Lee. She wanted more. During the pandemic, as a paralegal at her previous firm, she was grappling with something much larger: a diagnosis of stage four metastatic breast cancer. She was only given a short time to live.

There was hope, though. If the paralegal, who was also a single mom, could receive a very expensive treatment, there was a chance she would be given more time with her three year old son. That’s when Lee became an advocate. She banded together with other women, started a social media campaign, organized crowdfunding, and solicited help from powerful and connected people to get her paralegal the assistance she so desperately needed. Lee fought fiercely until, finally, the paralegal received the world class oncology care she deserved.

“That’s when I learned that the highest and best use of my time isn’t representing corporate defendants to keep money in their bank accounts,” says Lee. “The highest and best use of my time is to help others when they have nowhere else to turn.”
