When you face the prospect of divorce or other family law difficulties, you need the best legal counsel possible. Since 1995, the Law Offices of Barry R. Lewis have specialized in divorce, child custody, property division, support and other family law matters. We handle both contested and uncontested matters with the highest degree of caring, competence and professionalism.

Sensitivity, Strength and Experience

Having represented over 2000 divorce clients, we are sensitive to the fact that the process of divorce can be overwhelming. Our approach is quite simply to keep the best interests of our clients at the forefront. If you are a parent, we understand that the best interest of your children is also of critical importance and we'll do our best to help you try to maintain a working relationship with your ex-spouse.

We do not intend to, nor will we, put our interests ahead of what is right for our clients. We care and are passionate about what we do because it matters – families matter. When you are vulnerable, you do not want to be, nor should you be, taken advantage of by the legal system.

Although each case is unique, there are many specific issues that frequently occur. This is where our experience really makes a difference. When these issues arise, we have the knowledge to answer all your questions and the background to expertly address them. We understand that divorce can be associated with very emotional and life-altering times.

You deserve to be expertly represented by an attorney who specializes in and has the necessary experience in all areas of family law and not just someone who is starting out or who only has a few intermittent divorce clients.

The Law Offices of Barry R. Lewis provide skilled, caring and innovative solutions to your personal family law issues. We help you navigate a complicated legal system at this critical time in your life.

Settlement and Trial

We strongly believe in the power of negotiation and working with our clients to mediate and carefully craft their own agreements whenever possible, especially when children are involved. In most situations, our strength and expertise enables our clients to negotiate settlements without having to go to trial. This lets you reduce the bitterness involved in the process, obtain the best result in the shortest time, and keeps your costs down.

However, when a trial is necessary, we will not back down! With 30 years of experience, we have the needed expertise inside the courtroom. We are experienced in all aspects of the discovery process, motion practice and depositions leading to trial. We know the system, the people in it, the difficulties that can arise and many of the tendencies of individual judges. We will work closely with you to carefully evaluate all aspects of your case, todevelop a trial strategy and to carefully implement that strategy at trial.
