Jeffrey P. Lewis
Jeffrey Lewis works with clients who have suffered harm in their work environments. He helps people understand the workers’ compensation process and walks alongside them as they pursue compensation for their injuries. Additionally, Jeff serves men and women with diseases such as mesothelioma stemming from workplace asbestos exposure. Jeff grew up in small town Ohio, which was founded on blue-collar trades such as trucking, manufacturing, and farming. He understands the risks everyday workers take to keep our country thriving and enjoys helping those who have been injured recover well.
With a Juris Doctor from UNC at Chapel Hill and Bachelor of Science in Business (Decision Sciences) from Miami University, Jeff’s knowledge and skills have benefitted hundreds of clients and their families. With his former firm, Jeff was responsible for over $15,000,000 in settlements, including the largest in the firm’s history, earning his membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He has previous work experience as an adjunct professor for NC State University and a marketing consultant (both for various agencies as well as self-employed). Jeff joined Ward Black Law in January 2017 to focus his career in workers’ compensation law and engage with the Greensboro community through openness, transparency, and good citizenship.
Jeff and his wife Sally reside in Greensboro with their two children, a daughter (12) and a son (8). In their spare time, they remain active with their kids’ school, sports, and church. Jeff is the coach for his son’s baseball team and, along with his wife, keeps statistics for the Duke women’s basketball team.
