Relationship: Worked for lawyer
"Lewis has demonstrated a masterful handle on financing agreements, specifically those in the field of equipment leasing. He has the requisite skill, legal knowledge, experience and keen negotiation skills to litigate and resolve cases in a professional and economical matter. He never waivers from keeping his client's goals as his number one priority. I attribute many of the lessons I have learned in the legal field and beyond to Lewis. I have no reservations endorsing him. In fact, I consider him not only a mentor and industry leader but a true contract guru."
