Intelligent, knowledgeable, experienced, energetic, strategic, and fearless. And, he has surrounded himself with a staff who complement his competency and intensity. He is truly gifted in simplifying the complex – without diluting the details necessary for effective communication to the jury. His cross examination skills are precise in exposing the weaknesses of opposing witnesses and counsel. His engaging personality and presentation capture and hold the attention of everyone in the courtroom. My family and I are truly grateful to have had Chris and his team as advocates and counsel – they are incredible!FORMER CLIENT
Chris Lewis and his staff provided our family with the best representation during an extremely difficult time. He made himself available to listen and answer all of our questions and concerns. His entire staff was extremely professional, while at the same time providing comfort and encouragement to all of us. Chris is a master in the court room. The time and preparation his firm put into our case exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone. Our family is forever grateful to he and his staff of exceptional attorneys and paralegals.AMY
I cannot say enough great things about Chris and his firm. Unfortunately, I found myself in an awkward position with the law and needed the professional help and skill of Chris Lewis. He met with me to get the details and then quickly went to work on my case. While I was in an embarrassing situation, Chris was very professional and courteous, and put me at ease. At the conclusion of the ordeal, my case was dismissed and I was able to move on without the possible shadow on my record and career. I am grateful for professionalism and sincerity Chris gave me and to my case. If you’re in need of a lawyer, Chris Lewis is the one to call on.FORMER CLIENT
I’ve had almost three years to contemplate about writing this emotion-charged review. I hope I can adequately encapsulate our gratitude to Chris Lewis.
Our legal battle was epic; full of intrigue, elements of danger, truths, and lies. We started this journey feeling despondent and scared because of the severity of the criminal charge and the damning immigration consequences of a conviction. We were faced with the other side who seemed omnipotent and relentless. We were ultimately up against Goliath, and we were David (literally since our surname translates to David). What we didn’t expect, however, was the tremendous importance of having Chris defending us.
Chris is intelligent, incredibly hard-working, zealous, and, sometimes, downright scary. He commands the respect of all of his peers (defense attorneys and prosecutors alike) and of the judges. Whenever my husband saw Chris at court, my husband would light up and feel encouraged because he “felt safe.” He knew Chris would protect him and had his best interest in mind. If you want to be impressed and to witness the definition of a top advocate, you must watch Chris perform in the courtroom. He worked nonstop for 12 hours during voir dire (jury selection) and brought in his arsenal of attorneys to assist him. Yes, Chris busted the jury and after numerous trial resets and further negotiations, he was able to broker a plea agreement that would be anyone’s dream: (1) avoiding jail time, (2) avoiding negative immigration consequences, and (3) having the right to apply for nondisclosure. David may have had his rock and slingshot, but we had Chris. My family and I will be forever thankful to Chris for his dedication and care. I can never recommend Chris Lewis enough and advise everyone to consult with him and ultimately trust him to handle their case.A.D.
Needless to say no-one ever wants to hire a lawyer, but if you’re faced with a situation that could haunt you for the rest of your life you definitely want the best. Well, I was faced with a DWI charge and I was more than terrified at the effect this could have on my life; I was in my early 20s with my whole life ahead of me. By a twist of fate, I received a letter from Chris’s office, the last one before making my decision on representation and I decided to go for one more consultation. I’m SO glad I did! Chris made me feel at ease (as much as humanly possible in this situation) and I had complete confidence in the fact that he actually cared about the situation I was in. After years of having to go through the process, Chris ultimately got me acquitted and my burden was lifted; I will be forever grateful for this.
I have referred countless friends who fell into similar unfortunate circumstances, all who ended up seeing the same deep sense of trust in Chris Lewis.
Thank you for everything Chris! You were definitely the right choice!FORMER CLIENT
Several years ago I was arrested for DWI. I began by hiring probably the most expensive DWI lawyer in my city, and was soon disheartened by how his office treated me. I quit the first attorney and hired Chris Lewis, and that decision ultimately saved me.
From the outset, Chris had a strategy for my case that was insightful and practical. He evidently had the respect of judges and others in the courthouse, because his arguments convinced the judge to suppress nearly all of the evidence against me. The prosecutor finally dismissed the charges.
Mr. Lewis could have done what so many mediocre lawyers do (the minimum), but instead he went to bat for me in a big way, and won my case. I am forever grateful. He is a shining example for others in his field; simply the best.FORMER CLIENT
I couldn’t have asked for a better defense attorney. If you need a defense attorney in Dallas, you need Chris Lewis. I was initially frustrated by his cool, laid back personality but discovered that playfulness in our meetings did not translate to laziness in the courtroom. Chris is extraordinarily capable, sharp and thoughtful. He’s also well respected in the community which works to his clients benefit. Should your case go to trial, you want a lawyer who is charismatic, relatable and someone tuned in to the jury’s psychology and motivation. Chris exhibits these qualities in a way that appears effortless.
I don’t normally write reviews but I am so impressed by Chris that even now, 5 years after he represented me, I feel very strongly that you couldn’t find a better lawyer to represent you. If want an extremely clever lawyer who understands himself and his audience (jury/opposing counsel) and who will work hard not just because you’re paying him but because he gets invested in his clients and cares about doing well for them, you want Chris Lewis.FORMER CLIENT
We owe a debt of gratitude to Chris Lewis, Gregg Gallian, Frank Davila and the rest of the team.
Gregg and Chris handled our case with professionalism, expertise, and compassion. They did not rest until they achieved an outcome that surpassed our expectations. The amount of work that they put in behind the scene is amazing.
They cared for us like family, with honesty, integrity, and dogged perservenence. There’s no way that we can thank them enough.
If you are looking for exceptional criminal defense, you will not find a better team to represent you.STEPHEN A.
I am a business professional, single mother and made one of the largest mistakes of my life and woke up to a perfect storm and a DUI. Beyond any nightmare was living in fear and honesty I didn’t know I would make it through this. I owe this firm my life, these men kept my integrity and reputation intact. Frank Davila, Greg Gallian and Chris Lewis are “THE” dream team you want to place your life in their hands. Day or night this team kept me well informed, championed me the entire time while staying on top of my case. They are well educated and know the law inside and out. What I didn’t know, having a team of lawyers/firm so well connected was half the battle. I still remember walking in the first day humiliated, ashamed and in fear. When this team looks you in the eye and says “they have you”, Believe them! I could have lost everything from my job, social status, respect of my family/friends and most important my son. You can count of them to do the work, quickly and most important keeping your reputation and dignity intact. Thank you, Crain, Lewis, Brogdon for giving me my life back.SARAH C.
