YOUR CASE FROM ALL ANGLES
The Lewis & Matthews team works to create a custom legal strategy that address your unique situation. Ms. Lewis previously worked in Kansas City as a solo practitioner, and in that role, she handled a wide variety of cases, from criminal law to business matters. This experience has given her a unique perspective on her cases and allows her to offer you realistic and practical solutions.
Your case may include services from other professionals, so we at Lewis & Matthews work only with respected experts in fields such as appraisal, family and child investigation, and accounting to ensure you’re receiving the best possible advice and results for your situation.
A TEAM IN CONCERT FOR YOUR CASE
Our team at Lewis & Matthews meets regularly to discuss all active cases, so we completely understand your situation and can help you to our fullest ability. We prioritize our communication with you, and you can rest assured that you receive all the documents and information related to your case in a timely manner and get the answers to all your questions.
WE WILL WORK FOR A MEDIATED RESOLUTION
Our experienced staff knows that court battles are expensive, and you are more likely to honor an agreement you worked out with your former spouse than an order that the court has forced on you. This is also important when there are children involved, as a mediated resolution can help you co-parent and communicate with your ex-spouse better. Summit County normally requires that you and your ex-spouse attend a mediation session before the final hearing, and we will use that time to help you create an agreement you are comfortable with.
If you are unable to reach a satisfactory resolution of your case through mediation, then the team at Lewis & Matthews is ready and able to vigorously defend those interests in court.
As Ms. Lewis is a property owner in Summit County, she understands the unique challenges and circumstances of mountain community living.
