    Lew has the 1, 2 punch of decades of experience and zealous advocacy. He fights hard for his clients, is a tough adversary and a professional in every respect. He's smart, a creative thinker and goes the extra mile to make the best case possible. He also knows the ins and outs of New York practice, allowing him to artfully navigate the complex court system. I would highly recommend him.

    I endorse Lew without qualification. He is an excellent commercial litigator. He was an adversary in a long-running litigated matter, and I had an opportunity deal with him and observe his skill-set over a several year period. Lew is a tenacious adversary and zealous advocate for his client, but deals with opposing counsel in a respectful and professional manner that minimizes unnecessary disputes and promotes dialogue. He is highly knowledgeable of New York state and federal court practice, and is well-respected in the local bar. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any matter, especially complex litigation.
