As the son of a minister, I have always been dedicated to helping others. Since 1970 when I first became a lawyer, I have been privileged to represent thousands of people and make sure they were treated fairly.

I attended Wake Forest for college and law school; I met my wife, Kathy, on campus. We married after knowing each other 3 months and have been together now for more than 45 years. 

We have a wonderful dog, Jazzy, an 8 year-old mixed breed who is shown in a number of my TV ads.

I have been fortunate to obtain record verdicts in several NC counties. I have been recognized by both Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers for many years for my abilities in Personal Injury Litigation and in Eminent Domain.

I believe stongly in fighting to obtain justice for our clients and am grateful every day for the opportunity to do so.

The best ever
Mike is the rock star of all lawyers. He handled my case that lasted over a year and he gave me the best advice in my situation. Mike is truly liked and respected by many people because he is truthful, honest, and is blessed with wisdom. He always returned my calls - always. It was comforting to me to know he and Kara (another lawyer that works with him) were always on my side. Thank you Mike

Social Security Disability
You will not find a better Attorney. They will hole your hand the whole way. I had an attorney in High Point for 2 yrs I knew there reception after getting the run away. I chose Mike Lewis he down to earth and if I called five times a day. He would always call me back. If it wasn't for Mike Lewis helping me I would not have gotten my disability. He has an experience Social Security person that worked for Social Security for years and now he works for Mike Lewis and with all the great advice I had my Disability in three months ...I would not trust anyone else to hold my hand thru all this ordeal. He not only a Attorney He's your friends and his christian ways and his staff are excellent ....I m telling you Hire Mike Lewis you got a friend as well as an attorney.....Very down to earth and he does not rush your visits he there for you. It was like God sent me to Mike Lewis I needed a christian friend that is an attorney. Instead getting the run around another Attorney is High Point. I never met the attorney at the place in HP nor did I get a one on one experience like Mike Lewis;s office offers. I will always be obligated to them. JS

Lawyer and friend
We walked in as clients, but left with a great friendship! Made us feel comfortable and that we were the most important of his cases. Everything that has been said on all of his commercials are true! Took the time to make sure that my husband was always comfortable. I would recommend him because of the caring, all our questions were answered so us being, laymen could understand. Never made you feel like the questions you asked of him were not important. He answered all of them. No one could have done his job any better! Thank-you for everything dear friend! .
