“People come to us with problems they can’t solve by themselves, being able to help them is the best part of what we do. I always try to find out how my clients are doing. I want them to know I’m interested in helping them. I care. The people who work at Mike Lewis Attorneys are hired for the empathy and compassion they have for our clients.” — Mike Lewis
