Jon Ethan Lewis

About me

My father has practiced personal injury law for half a century, helping
thousands of individuals.  In 1996, I joined him in his practice after
working for a larger firm for four years.  Many of the clients we
represent cannot afford an attorney, and there is nothing better than
helping a family recover what they have lost, especially if it is from
a large corporation which was clearly in the wrong.

Helping
people is what our firm does.  Whether it's recovering money to help
make life easier, getting justice for someone when the criminal system
doesn't work, or simply getting a refund for someone on a vehicle which
is a lemon, I enjoy helping people.  We recently tried a case for a
family whose daughter was tragically killed in an automobile
collision.  The defendant didn't have enough insurance, and the family
wasn't concerned about money.  They simply wanted justice.  They had
lost their daughter forever, and this young man was going to move on
with his life without any form of punishment for his wrongful conduct. 
The family asked us to pursue the case through trial so that at the
very least there would be a judgment on his record.  That's what we
did.  We tried the case to a jury and won.  The family was grateful
that we took on this challenge when other attorneys turned them down
simply because there was not enough money in it.  When we have clients
thank us for helping them, we are rewarded in a way that you really
cannot describe.


 


Personal
I spend most of my spare time with my wife
and three children.  Much of that time involves little league sports. 
I am an avid jogger, and I attempt to play golf and tennis.
