Practice areas
  1. Immigration
    Famly-based, Detention and Removal, Consular Porcessing, Criminal-Immigration (including post-conviction, rentry), I-9 Employer Audits.

    23 years

  2. Criminal defense
    CrimImm: Immigrants facing crimes is one of my areas of expertise.

    23 years

Other than CrimImm and Personal Injury,  Immigration is mostly all I handle. I am proud of my clients who have become U.S. Citizens and who have fought the U.S. Government and won their cases. I personally believe that the value of living and working legally in the U.S. is worth the cost of investing time and money into your case. I have invested my time and money into my education and experience to effectively represent my clients. If I cannot obtain results, I will tell you immediately. Many lawyers do not do that.

Although our main office is located in the heart of the Nashville, Tennessee entertainment district (near the courts), we have satellite offices in Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Memphis. Most consultations at the satellite offices are by video-conference or in-person by prior arrangement. . We also meet clients from around the world via. ZOOM.

Immigration Services at its BEST..Sean Lewis !!
Attorney Lewis far exceeded the reviews I heard from him. From the first consultation to the end of the process, he made sure I understood my choices before proceeding. His commitment to my case and the level of honesty was what I appreciated the most. His staff was very professional and worked diligently with me.The most amazing part of this journey was how quickly he adapted to my area of need, one which wasn't his forte. No one else could've done what he did in the time that I had. I will forever be grateful and I recommend him to ANYONE in need of a reliable service. There are still good lawyers out there..and he is one of them!!

Has been almost 2 years I " hired "Sean Lewis and everytime I called his office they just said they still waiting for some paperwork from immigration. He asked to be paid at front for his service I paid $800 for starting my case and yet till today 2023 I'm still waiting for any response! NO I DO NOT RECOMMEND HIM! in my opinion he is a scammer who only propagates lies to the hispanic audience on the radio. we hispanics work hard for our money and we believe in these bad lawyer scammers. I lost money and time save your money and take it to a good honest lawyer. Shame of him.. Han pasado casi 2 años que "contraté" a Sean Lewis y cada vez que llamo a su oficina me desen que todavía estan esperando algún papeleo de inmigración. Pidió que le pagara por adelantado por su servicio. Pagué $ 800 por iniciar mi caso y, sin embargo, hasta hoy, 2023, ¡todavía estoy esperando una respuesta! NO YO NO LO RECOMIENDO! en mi opinion es un estafador que solo propaga mentiras a la audiencia hispana en la radio. los hispanos trabajamos duro por nuestro dinero y creemos en estos malos estafadores de abogados. Perdí dinero y tiempo, ahorre su dinero y llévelo a un buen abogado honesto. vergüenza de él

Rude and not knowledgeable
I went and paid another consultation (my husband had already paid a consultation fee once) to speak to him about getting another bond hearing (he is detained in Louisiana in a immigration detention facility) my husband called so he could also talk to Sean Lewis. Sean Lewis was yelling at my husband and telling him there was nothing that could be done and he had to go back and forget about ever trying to come back to the United States and forget about his family here. I asked about an I-130 form and he said it would never be approved. He made my husband very upset and made him cry for the words he said. Thankfully we found another lawyer that is more knowledgeable and can help him even though he has to go back to his country for awhile. I would not recommend Sean Lewis. I didn't like him the first time I met him either, he was dressed like he just got out of working as a painter had paint all over his clothes and wouldn't let me or the kids come back in the room to talk or ask questions as well. He may be on the radio and sound like an awesome lawyer but he is not as smart as he sounds.

I Don't Recommend Mr. Lewis
When I hired Mr. Lewis, he wanted me to pay his fee in advance, so I did. However, I didn’t feel satisfied with his service or the way he treated me as a client. I felt that he was too busy to spend time on my case. I waited for months for him to complete the work that he said he would complete; at the end, I had no choice but to hire and pay for another attorney, who completed the work in one week. In addition all the stress and anxiety I experienced, I ended up wasting a lot of time and money on something that should not have been this expensive. I wouldn’t hire him again and I wouldn’t recommend him to anyone.
