5.0 stars 14 totalReview Christopher Lewis
Posted by AD
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.

Several years ago I was arrested for DWI. I began by hiring probably the most expensive DWI lawyer in my city, and was soon disheartened by how his office treated me. I quit the first attorney and hired Chris Lewis, and that decision ultimately saved me.
From the outset, Chris had a strategy for my case that was insightful and practical. He evidently had the respect of judges and others in the courthouse, because his arguments convinced the judge to suppress nearly all of the evidence against me. The prosecutor finally dismissed the charges.
Mr. Lewis could have done what so many mediocre lawyers do (the minimum), but instead he went to bat for me in a big way, and won my case. I am forever grateful. He is a shining example for others in his field; simply the best.

I couldn't have asked for a better defense attorney. If you need a defense attorney in Dallas, you need Chris Lewis. I was initially frustrated by his cool, laid back personality but discovered that playfulness in our meetings did not translate to laziness in the courtroom. Chris is extraordinarily capable, sharp and thoughtful. He's also well respected in the community which works to his clients benefit. Should your case go to trial, you want a lawyer who is charismatic, relatable and someone tuned in to the jury's psychology and motivation. Chris exhibits these qualities in a way that appears effortless.
I don't normally write reviews but I am so impressed by Chris that even now, 5 years after he represented me, I feel very strongly that you couldn't find a better lawyer to represent you. If want an extremely clever lawyer who understands himself and his audience (jury/opposing counsel) and who will work hard not just because you're paying him but because he gets invested in his clients and cares about doing well for them, you want Chris Lewis.

I am very much thankful and grateful to Christopher Lewis and his Team.
Christopher Lewis, well experienced, knowledgeable and competent criminal defense attorney.
I hired Chris Lewis for my ICE case, by referring to the indictment, he concluded that, this is going to be a case settle without trial, and it happened the way he predicted.
Chris Lewis had convinced ICE team and led me successfully to the ICE team to have my testimony before them at the right time. And advocated my case before them positively so my testimony would work to release me from the case well before the trial. He is a nice person, friendly and supportive at your side during the case proceeding.
Initially, I remembered telling him I wanted to give testimony. But at that time he said, it was not the right time. He was protective to the clients. What I felt during my association with him. I strongly recommend him to any clients who is in need of criminal legal expert help.
Disparate clients who did not find things working with other attorneys in the Metroplex, may find solace in Chris Lewis firm.
He and his team kept me informed and updated all through the case proceeding.

Chris Lewis is the person you want in your corner. A consummate professional who puts his clients at ease. His preparation is second to none, and no stone is left unturned in the defense of his clients. I will recommend him to anyone needing his services. No one commands the attention of a jury like Chris, and they listen to each and every word he says.

You want someone strong, knowledgeable & confident when you find yourself needing the services of an Attorney, Chris & his team exactly that! He's well connected & understands the process, which is absolutely critical! I hope I NEVER need his services again, but just in case he's listed in "Favorites"! Good Luck!

If there were ten more stars (dots) for each of the above, Chris Lewis would get them all. I found myself in a very tough spot and in need of not just a good, but the best criminal defense lawyer I could find. I had heard from another friend that Chris took very good care of his case. After meeting with Chris I knew I had someone on my side that had excellent knowledge and experience. I felt more and more at ease as I received updates and progress reports. Long before I got the call that my case had been dismissed, I knew I had the right attorney representing me.
Getting arrested for a crime, is a scary thing...compounded by the possibility of picking the wrong lawyer to represent you. Chris was honest with me from day one about the possible outcomes; the weaknesses; the strengths; and he didn't pull punches. "I'm not going to sugar coat it" was repeated throughout our first meeting. He's got the intelligence, experience, knowledge, and tenacity that is important for a good lawyer, but its his level of skill, his confidence, and his rare and unique charm that sets him apart. I have no doubt that no other lawyer could have handled my case the way he did and gotten the result that he did. For that I am eternally grateful.
To make a long story short, if you are looking for a good criminal defense attorney. Keep looking. If you are looking for the best, Chris is your guy.

Chris is simply the best criminal attorney I have ever met. To be honest, I never thought I would need a criminal attorney but as luck should have it, I did. Chris is an absolute pro and he saved me from facing some potentially serious consequences. Chris is an absolute pro! He handled everything with great care and attention. Through the entire process I felt at ease knowing the best was on my side. You need Chris working for you!

I had an domestic violence case that Christopher Lewis assisted me with. I was nervous because I knew I was innocent, but I was dealing with a conservative county judging the book by its cover rather knowing all the details. Nevertheless, 18 months later; it was time for the trial. Before the jury selection started another judge walked in the court and stated "I'm here to see Mr. Lewis in action." Immediately I knew I hired the right attorney. By day two of my trial; it was dismissed as I had returned from lunch. During the trial I felt very confident as Mr. Lewis seemed to know more about my case and ex finance than I did. If you want to find an attorney who fights hard, very well educated and cares..... Christopher is the way to go.

Let me start my review of whom I consider the best attorney in the world. Christopher Lewis has defended me on two DWI arrests, one of which included a violation of a four year felony probation. I hired Chris in May 2007, for my fourth DWI. It was a felony in which I was facing a long time in the Texas Department of Corrections. He fought, tooth and nail, and I recieved four years probation. "Great job , Chris!". Unfortunately, I drove a friend to east Texas, where I picked up a fifth DWI on my way home. I was scared to death and feeling quite hopeless. Luckily, I made bond in Rusk County Texas. Then, I made a most miserable trip down I-20 to our home in the DFW area. Fortunately, my wife gave me a ride home, not a divorce. I called Chris the next day and told him the bad news. After getting over the initial shock of our conversation, Chris went into defense mode. After telling me everything I had to do to keep my freedom, I realized he was working two cases. I had the new DWI and the violations of the probation that Chris had gotten me 2 1/2 years earlier. I had to do a lot of work also, which I deserved, of course. Chris' assistant and staff were crucial in getting this insane incident behind me. He set up my bond for the probation violations, here, in Dallas, which was a miracle in itself. His assistant, Frank, and the entire office staff made calls, talked to bondsmen, Dallas probation officers, as well as judges and the courts in both counties. I was facing two to twenty years, with my less than perfect record. But, I still did not want to throw in the towel and neither did Chris, thank God. It was a tough task but after all the court dates, probation meetings, treatment programs, AA and, of course, money, it was well worth it. With his diligent hard work and numerous legal maneuvers, I still have my freedom today!
