I cannot say enough great things about Chris and his firm. Unfortunately, I found myself in an awkward position with the law and needed the professional help and skill of Chris Lewis. He met with me to get the details and then quickly went to work on my case. While I was in an embarrassing situation, Chris was very professional and courteous, and put me at ease. At the conclusion of the ordeal, my case was dismissed and I was able to move on without the possible shadow on my record and career. I am grateful for professionalism and sincerity Chris gave me and to my case. If you're in need of a lawyer, Chris Lewis is the one to call on.

Needless to say no-one ever wants to hire a lawyer, but if you're faced with a situation that could haunt you for the rest of your life you definitely want the best. Well, I was faced with a DWI charge and I was more than terrified at the effect this could have on my life; I was in my early 20s with my whole life ahead of me. By a twist of fate, I received a letter from Chris's office, the last one before making my decision on representation and I decided to go for one more consultation. I'm SO glad I did! Chris made me feel at ease (as much as humanly possible in this situation) and I had complete confidence in the fact that he actually cared about the situation I was in. After years of having to go through the process, Chris ultimately got me acquitted and my burden was lifted; I will be forever grateful for this.
I have referred countless friends who fell into similar unfortunate circumstances, all who ended up seeing the same deep sense of trust in Chris Lewis.
Thank you for everything Chris! You were definitely the right choice!

I've had almost three years to contemplate about writing this emotion-charged review. I hope I can adequately encapsulate our gratitude to Chris Lewis.
Our legal battle was epic; full of intrigue, elements of danger, truths, and lies. We started this journey feeling despondent and scared because of the severity of the criminal charge and the damning immigration consequences of a conviction. We were faced with the other side who seemed omnipotent and relentless. We were ultimately up against Goliath, and we were David (literally since our surname translates to David). What we didn't expect, however, was the tremendous importance of having Chris defending us.
Chris is intelligent, incredibly hard-working, zealous, and, sometimes, downright scary. He commands the respect of all of his peers (defense attorneys and prosecutors alike) and of the judges. Whenever my husband saw Chris at court, my husband would light up and feel encouraged because he "felt safe." He knew Chris would protect him and had his best interest in mind. If you want to be impressed and to witness the definition of a top advocate, you must watch Chris perform in the courtroom. He worked nonstop for 12 hours during voir dire (jury selection) and brought in his arsenal of attorneys to assist him. Yes, Chris busted the jury and after numerous trial resets and further negotiations, he was able to broker a plea agreement that would be anyone's dream: (1) avoiding jail time, (2) avoiding negative immigration consequences, and (3) having the right to apply for nondisclosure. David may have had his rock and slingshot, but we had Chris. My family and I will be forever thankful to Chris for his dedication and care. I can never recommend Chris Lewis enough and advise everyone to consult with him and ultimately trust him to handle their case.

Chris has run the table with a string of consecutive not guilty verdicts that has crowned him as one of the very best trial lawyers around. That kind of winning takes preparation, intelligence, superior advocacy, charm and unparalled skill, all of which Chris brings to bear in each of his cases. Juries love him. His unmatched track record gives him a unique credibility and bargaining power with prosecutors and judges. Everybody at the courthouse knows who he is and what results he gets. You won't find a better lawyer.
