If there were ten more stars (dots) for each of the above, Chris Lewis would get them all. I found myself in a very tough spot and in need of not just a good, but the best criminal defense lawyer I could find. I had heard from another friend that Chris took very good care of his case. After meeting with Chris I knew I had someone on my side that had excellent knowledge and experience. I felt more and more at ease as I received updates and progress reports. Long before I got the call that my case had been dismissed, I knew I had the right attorney representing me.
Getting arrested for a crime, is a scary thing...compounded by the possibility of picking the wrong lawyer to represent you. Chris was honest with me from day one about the possible outcomes; the weaknesses; the strengths; and he didn't pull punches. "I'm not going to sugar coat it" was repeated throughout our first meeting. He's got the intelligence, experience, knowledge, and tenacity that is important for a good lawyer, but its his level of skill, his confidence, and his rare and unique charm that sets him apart. I have no doubt that no other lawyer could have handled my case the way he did and gotten the result that he did. For that I am eternally grateful.
To make a long story short, if you are looking for a good criminal defense attorney. Keep looking. If you are looking for the best, Chris is your guy.
Chris is simply the best criminal attorney I have ever met. To be honest, I never thought I would need a criminal attorney but as luck should have it, I did. Chris is an absolute pro and he saved me from facing some potentially serious consequences. Chris is an absolute pro! He handled everything with great care and attention. Through the entire process I felt at ease knowing the best was on my side. You need Chris working for you!
I had an domestic violence case that Christopher Lewis assisted me with. I was nervous because I knew I was innocent, but I was dealing with a conservative county judging the book by its cover rather knowing all the details. Nevertheless, 18 months later; it was time for the trial. Before the jury selection started another judge walked in the court and stated "I'm here to see Mr. Lewis in action." Immediately I knew I hired the right attorney. By day two of my trial; it was dismissed as I had returned from lunch. During the trial I felt very confident as Mr. Lewis seemed to know more about my case and ex finance than I did. If you want to find an attorney who fights hard, very well educated and cares..... Christopher is the way to go.
Let me start my review of whom I consider the best attorney in the world. Christopher Lewis has defended me on two DWI arrests, one of which included a violation of a four year felony probation. I hired Chris in May 2007, for my fourth DWI. It was a felony in which I was facing a long time in the Texas Department of Corrections. He fought, tooth and nail, and I recieved four years probation. "Great job , Chris!". Unfortunately, I drove a friend to east Texas, where I picked up a fifth DWI on my way home. I was scared to death and feeling quite hopeless. Luckily, I made bond in Rusk County Texas. Then, I made a most miserable trip down I-20 to our home in the DFW area. Fortunately, my wife gave me a ride home, not a divorce. I called Chris the next day and told him the bad news. After getting over the initial shock of our conversation, Chris went into defense mode. After telling me everything I had to do to keep my freedom, I realized he was working two cases. I had the new DWI and the violations of the probation that Chris had gotten me 2 1/2 years earlier. I had to do a lot of work also, which I deserved, of course. Chris' assistant and staff were crucial in getting this insane incident behind me. He set up my bond for the probation violations, here, in Dallas, which was a miracle in itself. His assistant, Frank, and the entire office staff made calls, talked to bondsmen, Dallas probation officers, as well as judges and the courts in both counties. I was facing two to twenty years, with my less than perfect record. But, I still did not want to throw in the towel and neither did Chris, thank God. It was a tough task but after all the court dates, probation meetings, treatment programs, AA and, of course, money, it was well worth it. With his diligent hard work and numerous legal maneuvers, I still have my freedom today!
He is a excellent lawyer .I went to his office 10/11/12 talk to him about the issue my daughter was involved . He informed what to expect about the case and he did not even charge me a penny .he gave me his price if he have go to trial. I will recommend him to anybody. Chris best lawyer that ever in my life I met. He is caring ,trust worthy,honest.if you in trouble please hire him as your lawyer
Chris was absolutely outstanding. I am a client who lives in New York and Chris did everything in his power to adjourn hearings to accommodate my travel schedule. Chris along with his staff kept me informed about every step of the process from beginning to end. When it came time to go to trial Chris made me feel comfortable and confident the entire time. He helped me making informed decisions regarding the trial. Most importantly, through his hard work and zealous advocacy a not guilty verdict was returned by the Judge. I HIGHLY recommend Chris Lewis. He is a professional, intelligent and zealous advocate for his clients.
I won't go into the details on why I required Mr. Lewis' services but I will say that I would not want any other defense attorney out there for my case. Not only was he and his staff responsive, patient and accessible but he also knew what to do and kept me apprised of everything that was going on throughout my case. Needless to say that everyone should want a clever, outside-of-the-box thinker representing them and that is what Chris proved himself to be. Professional, courteous, caring and a trusted advisor.
When arrested for DUI a second time, I thought my goose was thoroughly cooked. My career which I highly covet was in jeopardy pending a guilty verdict. I am not proud to admit that on this occasion, I sympathized with the decisions made by the arresting officer. I was less than optimistic about my future to say the least. However after a consultation with Chris Lewis, I felt I had a felt a fighting chance. Chris understood the magnitude of my reality and assured me he'd do his best to take care of things. During the process, I was kept informed and never even had to make an appearance in court. Eventually, the case was dismissed. When I inquired to find out the how's and why's, Chris simply responded, "I put them in a bad position". Enough said. His unbelievable record which I am now part of speaks for itself. If you find yourself having made a similar mistake, please learn from it and don't hesitate to call Chris Lewis. Plus he's a cool dude!
