Lewis Disability Law Firm was top notch. Support staff Nick and Rob are very professional and patient and always take time to answer any questions. Scott was very personable and professional as well, and helped me prepare for my administrative hearing and I won my case. Thank you for representing me. I would highly recommend them to others.

I don't think anyone who wants to work but can't could have any idea what it takes to go through this process. I feel much better being with this Law firm above anyone else through the reviews and my short experience working with Rob so far. I feel like I made the best possible decision I could have made.

Scott and his team was patient and helped my son and I through years of difficult dealings with necessary organizations to make sure that we got the understanding we needed from the courts and system. They talked us through all the scary and difficult processes with kindness. Recommend 100%!
