Michael Lewis is a native of Jacksonville, Florida. He attributes his initial interest in the practice of law to his grandfather, J. Leonard Lewis, who was a prominent civil rights attorney and businessman in Jacksonville, Florida. “Growing up in a family that was entrenched in the business community, helped me get an early start in the world of insurance and business finance. I spent many summers and afternoons after school, working at the Afro-American Life Insurance Company, which was one of the first insurance companies of any kind established in the State of Florida by my great- great grandfather, A.L. Lewis.”  

Mr. Lewis received his Political Science degree from Florida State University and his juris doctorate from the University of Florida College of Law. "Prior to my last year in law school, I had the privilege of working at The White House, as an intern during the Jimmy Carter Administration. Following graduation from law school I began my law career under the tutelage of Willie E. Gary. Working alongside Mr. Gary was an incredible opportunity as we tried cases all over the country with many of them resulting in million dollar verdicts. That experience as a law partner at Gary, Williams, Parenti, Finney, Lewis et. al. prepared me for the battles that I relish today in support of my clients as they seek justice against corporate giants, as well as others who have harmed them. Clients only get one shot at seeking the justice that they deserve. It’s our job to see to it that, we have done everything that we can to help them achieve that goal.”

Mr. Lewis has served extensively on numerous boards and committees including Stuart Main Street, Martin County NAACP, Treasure Coast Private Industry Council, Leadership Martin County and the 19TH Circuit Court’s Grievance Committee for the Florida Bar. 

Mr. Lewis and Attorney Jason L. Williams founded the Law Firm of Lewis and Williams and have continued their tradition of professionalism and success. Throughout his 30 plus years of practice, Mr. Lewis has handled many complex, high profile lawsuits and settlements including cases against; Valuejet, U.S. Air, M.A.R.T.A., New York Staten Island Ferry, District of Columbia Police Department and the Dade County Metro Zoo just to name a few. Mr. Lewis has achieved many verdicts and settlements in excess of $1,000,000 including wrongful death claims, tractor trailer accidents, airline crashes, drownings at public pools, day care negligence, propane gas explosions and medical negligence. 

Mr. Lewis is a member of the Florida Justice Association, Treasure Coast Justice Association, Palm Beach County Justice Association, Million Dollar Advocates Forum, the National Bar Association and a life member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc..  He is also a member of the United States Southern and Middle District Courts of Florida.
