Absolutely the best!
From consultation to the very end of our case, Lewis was wonderful. He was extremely competent, efficient and accessible. He explained every aspect of our case, and aggressively fought for us. As promised, Lewis was able to navigate my family through one of the toughest challenges we had ever faced. We remain forever grateful. If ever you are in need of an attorney who you can trust will aggressively fight for you, Lewis S. Smalls is that attorney.

Client
I just want to say that I could not have asked for a better lawyer and this is not because he won my case but he was very attentive and when I called him for anything he was always available. He was thorough and he knew exactly what he was doing. If I ever need a lawyer again, I would not hesitate for a moment to hire Lewis and I certainly would recommend him to family and friends. He was reassuring and confident. I cannot express the magnitude of the amazing customer service that I received.

Great Lawyer
I hired Mr. Small back in July 2018 after I was involved in a car accident. I just settled the case October 2019, and I'm quite satisfied with the outcome. The main thing I appreciated was that Mr. Small was always available and that I had his direct cell phone number. I would definitely recommend him and use him again; hopefully I won't need him though.

Mrs.
I hired Mr. Small to help me with my 17 years old daughter, that was processed twice in two cases of possession and use of THC and marijuana. It was the best thing I did, because he understood immediately the case and was very helpful with advises and my daughter getting the least possible punishment . Thank you.

Phila. best lawyer
Mr. Lewis S. Small was highly recommended through my employer of 19 yrs. I hired Mr. Small to represent my sons case . Mr. Small is extremely knowledgeable about the law ,professional , and is a very supportive person. He was available to answer any questions that me or my son had. He returned all of my phone calls in a very timely matter, and kept us up to date of all court dates and proceedings. Mr. Small represented my sons case in court and we were very, very pleased with the way he presented the facts, and with the outcome. I will never forgot what Mr. Small did for my son and also for our family. I would highly recommend Mr. Lewis S. Small to anyone who would be in need of a criminal or personal injury lawyer.

The Best Personal Injury Attorney!
I was in an auto accident and my first attorney suggested I settle for $5k. Mr Small got me over $60k and I didn't even have to pay him until I got the money. He's the best personal injury attorney there is!

Brilliant Criminal Trial Attorney!
In 2015 I was arrested for felony fraud related to a charity I helped create. I was accused of not giving the family for which the charity was created all the funds received. This was something I was guilty or however, was also fueled by a terrible addiction to opiates and alcohol. Mr. Small worked with the courts to allow me the time to receive the best possible rehab and drug treatment in Florida prior to returning to Pennsylvania for my court dates. I am a single mother to a small child and while in treatment was separated from my son for over 5 months. It was extremely important to my family, myself and the well-being of my son that As part of my sentence for the crime I committed I not be separated from my son - jail time. Mr. Small is very well educated in the drug epidemic that is consuming our nation and made sure I saw the professionals necessary (doctors) to assist in relating the factors in this case to the judge. Through his many years of experience, education, continuing education, compassion and sheer brilliance in and out of the court room, I was sentenced to probation and time served for my stay in rehab. Mr. Small was even able to take this a step further by portraying to the judge in my case the importance of allowing me to do my probation in Florida, where I have my support system. Most importantly because of Mr. Small and his undeniable dedication to the justice system - I will not be separated from my son again... Thank you is not enough Mr. Small for everything!!

Truly a brilliant Attorney at Law
I've used Attorney Small on several occasions; in each of my cases Attorney Lewis Small has shown his impeccable work skills and his loyal dedication in handling each of my claims. One case was for me, (civil), and the other for my husband it was (criminal). Attorney Small, is a brilliant trial attorney; he made sure I got the maximum due me in my civil case. And his criminal defense was truly a blessing to witness. Acquit, acquit, acquit. If you want to win your case, I suggest you call on Attorney Lewis S. Small.

Nice Guy, Great Attorney
I was very nervous when I found out that I needed to retain an attorney. Lewis was kind and immediately established a rapport, making it easy to work with him. He is knowledgeable and efficient. He did a great job of researching for the case. His presentation skills are stellar. I almost felt sorry for the side. Lewis Small gets results! I would retain him again in a heartbeat. It's good to have someone like him on your team!
