About me

aul Lewis, Esq., a partner with the Firm, has practiced law in the Greater Washington Area for more than 38 years. During this time he has successfully represented thousands of clients who have faced a wide variety of legal problems.

As an Assistant State’s Attorney for Montgomery County, Maryland, Paul handled prosecutions at every level of the criminal justice system, including simple misdemeanors, violent street crime, DUI arrests, traffic matters and white collar crime. He now brings this experience to the defense of those citizens charged with such offenses, appearing regularly in Courts throughout Maryland and in the District of Columbia. 

Since 1984 Paul has focused on litigation both in State and Federal Courts. His principal areas of emphasis include:

• Personal Injury (Auto Accidents/Slip & Fall)
• Criminal Defense
• Traffic Defense(DUI), Driving While Suspended and other matters)
• Family Law (Divorce, Custody, Child Support, Alimony)


Paul’s approach to the practice of law is to aggressively represent his clientele, to maintain effective communication with all of his clients, and to offer his expertise at a fair and competitive price.

Over the years Paul has been a regular contributor to the Montgomery County Bar Association serving on its Executive Committee, Fee Arbitration Committee, the Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee, and the Peer Review Committee. His involvement in the community has focused on volunteer service and he has been honored to serve as an officer of a nonprofit organization.

A 1969 graduate of John F. Kennedy High School in Silver Spring, he earned a B.A. with Distinction from the University of Virginia in 1973 and his J.D. from the Wake Forest University School of Law in 1976. His interest in litigation started at Wake Forest where he competed in national advocacy competitions and served as a Moot Court Judge.
