We Hold Businesses Accountable
Since 1987, Mr. Lewis has represented homeowners, businesses, subdivisions, ranchers, and other victims whose property, water, and health have been contaminated and injured by businesses who have polluted our environment and precious natural resources. Several states have retained Mr. Lewis as counsel to prosecute those who polluted and contaminated the States’ natural resources, including public drinking water supplies. He successfully represented an independent school district that was forced to close one of its elementary schools due to its proximity to a Super Fund site.
Mr. Lewis has taken the depositions of over 400 corporate executives, petroleum engineers, hydrologists, chemists, toxicologists, geologists, environmental engineers, and the experts retained by those parties responsible for the pollution. As a sub-specialty of environmental litigation, Mr. Lewis has also concentrated on the economic evaluation of our natural resources, with particular emphasis on evaluating the economic loss of surface water and underground aquifers.
Over the course of his career, he has served as the national president of the American Board of Trial Advocates and has been named to the Texas SuperLawyers list for 12 consecutive years. He has tried more than 200 lawsuits, giving clients the advantage of his reputation when negotiating full and fair settlements in property and personal injury litigation relating to environmental damages.
