Jonathan Lewis graduated from Norwich University, the Military College of Vermont, with a B.A. in 2011. He spent over ten years in emergency medicine and Fire/Rescue as a Firefighter/Medic in Vermont, Virginia, and for the Department of Defense at various postings in the Middle East.
In 2015 Jonathan decided to pursue the practice of law, and attended the University of South Carolina School of Law, where he graduated from in 2018. While there he was elected to the Honor Council for all three years, on which he also served as as officer. Additionally, he was one of a handful of students to try-out for, and be accepted on, both the Mock Trial and Moot Court Bars. On the Moot Court Bar Mr. Lewis appeared in multiple competitions, eventually appearing before the Judges of the South Carolina Court of Appeals, and the Justices of the South Carolina Supreme Court.
Jonathan has previously worked on both sides of the criminal bar, as both a Defense Attorney and as a former Special Assistant Solicitor in the Fifth Judicial Circuit, where he was assigned to prosecute Drug Crimes and Violent Crimes. He is dedicated to passionate, zealous, ethical, and professional representation for all of his clients. No matter the crime or circumstances, be it negotiating with the Solicitor's Offices to secure a dismissal due to lack of evidence, a favorable plea deal, or an initial trial; or whether a potential client finds it necessary to file an appeal to the South Carolina Court of Appeals or Supreme Court following a negative outcome from trial, he will fight to protect your rights and freedom using his experiences as a prosecutor and as a defense attorney.
Mr. Lewis is admitted to practice in all South Carolina State Courts and Tribunals.
