Lea Keller is a managing partner at Lewis & Keller. She has several years of experience focusing on personal injury claims. She graduated from Wake Forest University School of Law. While attending law school, she clerked at a local firm where she assisted in complex medical malpractice cases and learned about negotiation, mediation, and settlements. While in practice, Lea has worked on a wide range of cases, including complex class action litigation, but she chooses to focus on personal injury work.

Lea is a dean’s list graduate of High Point University with a Bachelor of Science degree in International Business. She then attended Wake Forest University School of Law on the advice of her grandmother and with the hopes that it would open many doors for her future. While attending law school, it became clear to Lea that she loved the law and she has been passionate about it ever since.
Serving her clients is Lea’s number one goal. She believes that empathizing with her clients and earning their trust is one of the fundamental building blocks of the lawyer-client relationship. Always a loyal advocate for her client, she focuses on open and honest communications in pursuing the claim in the client’s best interest.
Lea lives in Thomasville with her family. She and her daughter recently earned their black belts in Tae Kwon Do together at Tru TKD. Her favorite charity is the Second Harvest Food Bank, and her basic motto is “attitude is everything.”
