Mr. Lewis truly believes that personal attention to each client's unique situation makes the difference. At some law firms, especially the high-volume "bankruptcy mills," you may never meet the lawyer handling your case. Some firms hire people out of state to draft your paperwork! Or, you may meet only a paralegal. You may meet several people and the lawyer that is handling your case is someone altogether different. At Lewis Legal Services, your lawyer lives in your community and he will be the one that counsels you and represents you from beginning to end. At Lewis Legal Services, accountability is the difference.
Lewis Legal Services, in many cases, will meet and beat bankruptcy fee quotes from other reputable attorneys and law firms. At Lewis Legal Services, competitive and fair fees make the difference.
A native born and educated Hoosier, Mr. Lewis concentrates his legal practice on consumer bankruptcy and general civil litigation.
Prior to the inception of Lewis Legal Services, Mr. Lewis worked for several well-respected law firms and also one of the largest bankruptcy law firms in the Midwest. Mr. Lewis has litigated on behalf of the consumer against corporations large and small in numerous cases and is dedicated to "fighting for the little guy." Mr. Lewis started Lewis Legal Services with the commitment and firm belief in providing affordable legal counseling and representation with dedication and personal attention to each client - a practice far too unknown to many law firms today

One of the most important things about any lawyer's practice is how he or she stays up to date on current trends and developments in the law. To ensure this, most states condition the renewal of one's license to practice law on the completion of minimum continuing legal education known as MCLE or simply CLE. In Indiana, a lawyer must have a minimum of 36 hours of CLE in a 3-year reporting period. By far, most lawyers will only do that bare minimum and believe it or not, some lawyers don't even do that!
Mr. Lewis makes it a priority to stay up on legal developments and routinely accumulates well over the minimum requirement of lawyers. If you meet with any lawyer, ask them about their CLE. Mr. Lewis is proud to show you that for the three year period ending 2018, Mr. Lewis accumulated 86.6 hours of CLE.
Mr. Lewis believes that clients benefit from a lawyer who is up to date on ever-changing laws, regulations and procedures and genuinely believes that staying up on current developments provides the skills that matter and make the difference.
