Brian D. Lewis
Brian focuses his law practice on representing persons injured by others and persons accused of crimes. He understands that every client is greatly affected by the injury or criminal charge that has occurred, and he strives to ease the stress of these traumatic situations. Brian has conducted trials since he was in law school and has obtained numerous large injury verdicts and settlements, as well as a number of criminal dismissals and acquittals.
Recent significant results include a jury trial not guilty verdict in a murder case where the client shot and killed an unarmed man; Brian presented the self-defense theory of stand your ground, and the case was featured in a report on CNN Newsroom. Brian and Randy Ebersbach recently concluded six years of litigation, including claims against overseas insurance companies, to collect on an injury claim.
