“He’s a total fighter and a bull in the courtroom, I highly recommend anyone to seek his counsel.” –Former Client.

Mr. Lewis is a litigation associate in Ashcraft and Gerel’s general negligence practice. Since joining Ashcraft and Gerel, he has litigated numerous cases throughout Maryland and has recovered millions of dollars in damages on behalf of his clients. A few of his recent notable cases includes securing a six-figure settlement for a woman who aggravated a pre-existing knee injury when she tripped and fell on a defective sidewalk, and a $200,000.00 judgment he obtained for a client who was severely injured due to a local gym’s negligence in failing to repair a leaking roof. Mr. Lewis is an ardent advocate whose ability to negotiate and litigate cases effectively has allowed him to obtain exceptional results for his clients.

Early Years

While in law school, Mr. Lewis was an avid competitor. As a member of the negotiations team, Mr. Lewis placed 2nd in the nation. Additionally, he was an integral member of the mock trial team, which he helped advance to the nationals.

Most notably, as a Rule 16 Assistant State’s Attorney for Prince George’s County, Maryland, Mr. Lewis polished his presentation of evidentiary arguments before the District Court of Maryland. This experience provided him with insight into the general practice of the courts and prosecuting attorneys. Prior to his term with the State’s Attorney’s office, Mr. Lewis clerked at a prestigious personal injury firm in Florida. While there, he worked with the tobacco litigation team, and on various personal injury, general negligence, and products liability cases which will prove useful in his practice areas.

Outside the Courtroom

Mr. Lewis enjoys participating in D.C. intramural sports leagues, traveling to a nice beach or a place he’s never been, as well as keeping up on high-stakes civil litigation.
