Lewis & Keller
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 9/28/20
Winston-Salem, N.C.: Attorney Mike Lewis, founding partner and managing attorney of Lewis & Keller, is celebrating the impressive achievement of 50 years serving as a personal injury lawyer dedicated to protecting the rights of injured North Carolinians.
Mike Lewis: A History
The son of a Moravian minister, Mike Lewis was taught early and often about the importance of helping people. He would take this valuable lesson with him through his undergraduate studies at Wake Forest University, his legal studies at Wake Forest School of Law, and eventually, it would shape his career as a compassionate personal injury attorney. His first experience as an attorney was embarked at White and Crumpler, the year was 1970. The practice was general with an emphasis on litigation, representing plaintiffs, accused criminals, and aggrieved spouses. While he would eventually end up serving injured individuals facing personal injury cases, this experience led to the opportunity to learn from influential mentors and the handling of more than 70 appeals in his first 7 years of practice.
A Champion for the Rights of Injured North Carolinians
After handling a monumental domestic case at a different firm in the 80s, Mike switched his focus to litigating personal injury claims in which he was able to successfully obtain record verdicts in several counties. Mike has represented thousands of injured people since then, always with integrity and compassion.
“My proudest moment occurs every time I am able to help someone be treated fairly and justly in regard to their claim,” Attorney Mike Lewis Said.
Attorney Mike Lewis has been designated “AV” by Martindale, recognized repeatedly by both Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers for his work in Personal Injury and Eminent Domain, and he has served as President of the North Carolina Western Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates.
Looking Forward & A Life Worth Sharing
Mike has been married to the love of his life, Kathy, for more than 51 years. He attributes all of his success to her and her support. The two have traveled the world together exploring hobbies such as ballroom dancing, competitive tennis, culminating in their USTA Southern 50s Mixed Doubles crown, and more.
Mike’s hope for the future is that the legislature and courts will lift some of the harsh limitations plaintiffs in North Carolina now face in trying to get fair treatment.
