L. Jeffrey Lewis

At the beginning of every case, Mr. Lewis creates a plan with sequential steps that logically develop the case toward a cost-effective and successful conclusion.
Mr. Lewis’ practice focuses on real estate tax appeals and eminent domain takings, and he has successfully represented many commercial property owners, real estate developers, private individuals, and corporations in these fields.
