Senior Partner & Owner
After graduating from Wake Forest Law School in 1970, Michael J. Lewis began his practice in the Triad area. Early in his career, he obtained record verdicts in several North Carolina counties, leading him to focus his practice on personal injury law and eminent domain. As a lawyer, Michael creates a special bond with each of his clients. He enjoys solving problems and finding the best answer for his clients. His clients find him caring and interested in their well-being.
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.
