    Jeff was referred to me by several other lawyers that were familiar with his acumen and exceptional skills in appellate work. The appeal with which I needed the assistance of an appellate specialist would affect my client's financial future in the range of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Jeff's abilities to persuasively and elegantly present facts in the appellate briefs and in oral argument exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend Jeffrey Lewis as an exceptional appellate advocate!
