Attorney Profile

As an attorney at Taylor & Ring, James W. Lewis provides dedicated legal representation to clients in Los Angeles, California, and throughout Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, Orange, San Bernardino and San Diego counties. He focuses his practice on traumatic personal injury, generally handling cases that involve sexual assault and sexual abuse, motor vehicle accidents, brain injuries, burn injuries, amputations, premises liability, product liability and wrongful death.

After earning a Bachelor of Arts from San Diego State University, Mr. Lewis went on to attend Pepperdine University School of Law. From there, he received a Juris Doctor in 1999.

For more than a decade, Mr. Lewis defended insurance companies in a variety of legal matters. In his current practice, he draws on that experience to fiercely advocate on behalf of those injured by the intentional or negligent actions of others. He understands the devastating impact that such injuries can have on victims and their families, and he is sensitive to their situations. For that reason, Mr. Lewis strives to help his clients achieve favorable outcomes that address their short-term and long-term needs. He has helped to obtain a number of multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements for his clients, including a $5.42 million verdict for a woman who was raped by a staff member at a West Hollywood nightclub. Mr. Lewis has an Avvo "Superb" rating.

Staying active in the community is a priority for Mr. Lewis. He is a past president of a bar association in Los Angeles County.  Mr. Lewis also volunteers with a nonprofit hospital foundation, providing pro bono legal counsel and serving as the foundation's vice chair.
