    William Lewis is a knowledgeable, dependable, and hardworking attorney. I have no concerns referring any business, tax, or litigation matters to his office. I have personally observed his attention to detail, his knowledge of complex legal issues, and his dedication to his clients. Beyond being an excellent lawyer, he also has an international outlook and follows current events, so he is well suited to advise his clients on possible changes in the law and economic trends. I endorse Mr. Lewis.
