Integrity matters to Lewis
I had to find new legal counsel after my first lawyer's lack of experience became painfully obvious the first time in front of the judge. In my search for a new lawyer, Lewis Williams came highly recommended, and he made an immediate impact. My (now) ex-wife’s lawyer was loud, rude, aggressive, and willing to present half-truths and outright lies in the courtroom. (My previous lawyer didn’t stand up to her, but just wilted.) After I hired Lewis, she became much more civil and showed him immediate respect. (He told me he had beaten her in the courtroom before, so that was a good sign.) My ex-wife worked very little during our 18-year marriage, had an affair, and faked a brain injury in her attempt to gain disability benefits. I had copious amounts of evidence for all this. Unfortunately, Tennessee state law apparently cares little about morality and ethics and mostly looks at income vs. need. Thus, I was vulnerable to paying extensive alimony due to my income and the length of our marriage. Lewis encouraged me to settle, even though he told me he would make up to $30,000 in more legal fees if we went to court. I was amazed at his honesty and integrity. On a side note, he is very prompt at returning emails and works through weekends, holidays, and even when he’s sick! There were times when I thought, “He needs to rest.”

Lewis and his staff are the best, look no further for the team that has your best interest in mind
Lewis represented me in a contested divorce that was being drawn out longer than needed. He and his team have the quickest, straight forward communication you could ask for. Everyone is prompt to reply and address any new circumstances with a level head and your best interest in mind. Going through a divorce is extremely stressful and I could not imagine having anyone else by my side, Lewis and Jaclin are the best team any client could ask for! If you're reading these, then your in the same boat I was, do not wait any longer wondering who would be best, give Lewis a call and he will get the path started as painless as possible with your best interest in mind. He knows the laws so you don't have to.

A winning attorney who cares
Lewis genuinely cares. If there is one thing that makes Lewis different that other attorneys I've engaged with, is his personal investment in your case and story and his superb instincts and knowledge. He worked tirelessly to understand my situation and worked diligently to prepare for our hearings. He was always available and responded to me after hour and on weekends. I would highly recommend him to anyone needing an attorney who practices family law in Nashville and Middle Tennessee.

Amazing Attorney
Lewis is absolutely the best , and I hate it took me so long to post a review about his expertise. He was my divorce attorney during one of the hardest times of my life and without his experience and knowledge of the legal system , I would have been at a loss. I recommend him above any other attorney in Nashville , and not only is he a great attorney but a really good person, to this day if I had a legal question. I think he would be more than willing to offer advice.

#1 Divorce Attorney in Nashville
Lewis was a major help during my contested divorce. He & his paralegal were thorough and frequent kept me in the loop with my long drawn out divorce. If you want an attorney that stands firm and does what it takes to get what you want, Lewis is the man! I recommend him to anyone seeking an exceptional divorce lawyer.

Thorough, empathetic and professional
Getting a divorce was one of my worst fears and probably the hardest thing I've ever done. From the first time I spoke with Lewis I was genuinely impressed by his professionalism and confidence, he instantly made me feel like things were going to be handled properly. His assistant Laura was a godsend, she was so quick at answering all of my questions and was even emotionally comforting to me through some of the worst parts. Everything was handled thoroughly, they never let the momentum slow. I'm seriously grateful for them and would refer anyone.

Wonderful Experience
its always a scary situation when dealing with anything that involves the various types of lawyers and legal advisers in the world today. As the professionals, you entrust them to have your best interest in mind. That was the exact situation i experienced with Lewis Williams. When i first contacted Lewis, i was greeted with professionalism, but not dry, stuffy legal talk. He reviewed my case thoroughly and presented me with several options on how i could proceed as well as the possible counter acts by the defendant. Lewis worked very close and listened to my side of the story and gave me options, and didnt try to push me in any one direction. With all the back and forth between Lewis and the other attorney, Lewis kept me well informed about what was going on, what the next step was and when it should take place which was great. Nothing is worse than not being in the know in legal matters. Nobody ever hopes to have to hire an attorney, but should the need ever arise again in the future for me personally, i have no question about who i want on my side representing me and my best interest.

Excellent Advice and Representation
I am very grateful to Lewis Williams for his council through a difficult time. While highly professional and knowledgable, he was also personable and accommodating; I would highly recommend Lewis to anyone, I do not believe I could have had anyone better to guide and represent me.

Professionalism and compassion at it's very best.
I find it difficult to accurately verbalize the debt of my gratitude to Lewis. After consulting with five other attorney's, I hired Lewis to represent me in my rather messy and stressful divorce. Lewis knows how important it is for the client to be aware of the overall process and the various obstacles that are possible in a divorce proceeding. Lewis and his assistant, Laura, were quick to respond to any questions I had with answers that not only educated me but also put my mind at ease. Regardless of the fact that my spouse repeatedly tried to draw out or stall the process, Lewis and Laura maintained the forward momentum. Lewis did an excellent job defending me when my spouse made numerous false and ugly accusations. Throughout it all, Lewis conducted himself in a professional manner, kept each court appearance (of which, there were many) on topic, went above and beyond by drafting and submitting all court orders without delay, and received several compliments from the Judge for his professionalism and performance. Unlike my spouse, the Judge never had to openly criticize or chastise my attorney. Lewis and Laura (his assistant) are a wonderful team. In my case, they most definitely set the standard and raised the bar with regards to the level of service that each client should expect to receive from their chosen representative. I received a fair and equitable settlement in my divorce because Lewis was not willing to accept anything less. He effectively protected my rights, ensured that I received the assets that I was entitled to, and did not allow my spouse to leave me with all of the debt. I have already passed his name on to two friends that are considering divorce and I will continue to refer others to him. While my divorce ended up costing me far more than many others that I know (we appeared in court on six occasions for one issue) I am confident that I received the very best representation possible in a divorce that was drawn out by my spouse. The hourly rate charged by Lewis was comparable to the rates quoted by the five other attorneys that I contacted prior to filing the divorce action. I have nothing negative to say about Lewis and I am truly pleased with all of his hard work.

If you need an awesome divorce attorney, please call Lewis
Lewis handled my divorce. He always made sure that I knew exactly what would happen. He answered all of my questions, taking the time to make sure I knew and understood whatever it was. He knows what he is doing and how to make sure his client gets the best deal possible. He is a great lawyer and I would and do recommend him to anyone who needs a lawyer. His assistant Laura is awesome at her job and soooo very caring and understanding. They make an awesome team and they made my divorce as easy as possible. I cant say enough good things about both of them.

If you need a great divorce attorney, please call Lewis.
Lewis did a wonderful job representing me. Divorce is something I never wanted in my life. I took my vows very seriously and intended to keep them. I had been through way too much for way too long and then I experienced the ultimate betrayal. This was a very stressful time for me. Lewis took time to explain the process to me during the initial consultation and helped me understand where I stood in the divorce. I had called other attorneys but after the consultation, I felt Lewis would do the best job for me. He made it clear that he would represent my best interest and he did. Lewis was very thorough in his work. He was firm explaining to opposing counsel that I would not waive any of my rights to marital assets in the divorce. Lewis walked me through the process step by step. He was always very professional and understanding of what a difficult time one goes during a divorce. Lewis made sure I understood the divorce can take some time and yet he kept things moving as quickly as possible. I understand now that mine went faster than many others I have heard of. He prepared a very fair, even offer for the marital dissolution agreement. That was rejected by my ex-husband so we went to mediation. Lewis and his paralegal, Laura, meticulously prepared my case. Lewis was there with me during mediation making sure that I had proper representation and making sure that I got a fair settlement. I remember Lewis telling me during the mediation that I will be fine after the divorce and those were words of encouragement that were so nice to hear. Lewis explained the final court proceeding so that I was comfortable and prepared. Lewis prepared the Quit Claim Deed needed to have the house put in my name. After my divorce was final, I realized that I needed a Will to be sure my assets will go to my family and make things easier for them when I die. I asked Lewis if he could help me with that too and he did. I cannot thank Lewis enough for all he did to represent me. He has given me some peace back in my life and I am forever grateful.

Lewis is the perfect combination of knowledge and professionalism. This was my first time dealing with false accusations and having to hire an attorney to defend myself. Lewis related to my situation with compassion and the"human touch". His assistant Laura is wonderful also. I truly can't imagine where I would be without them representing me. Thank you, thank you thank you!!!

Professional & efficient, thoroughly recommended
Lewis was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful throughout my divorce. He was so thorough that the judge actually commented on the detail of the information that he had submitted. He also has an awesome paralegal who helps to make sure that the process is as seamless as possible - friendly and quick to respond in detail to questions. Hopefully I'll only ever need the one divorce myself (!) but I'd recommend Lewis to anyone that needs a divorce lawyer themselves.
