Whether he’s helping a client or building something, Rusty likes rolling up his sleeves and doing things the right way. He credits mentors and real-life experiences for his work ethic and compassion. “I enjoy helping people,” Rusty says. “I view the practice of law as a service and not a business.”
Rusty is licensed to provide that service in South Carolina courts and in the federal District Court for the District of South Carolina. He is a member of the South Carolina Bar Association, the Greenville County Bar, and the American Bar Association. He also is a member of the South Carolina Association for Justice and has served on that organization’s Board of Governors.
Rusty was born and raised in Greenville, SC. He majored in Business Management at Clemson University, graduating with honors (magna cum laude) in 2008. The predicable next step for Rusty might have been immediate entry into graduate school, but he likes working with his hands and wanted to experience another part of the country. So, he headed out West. After a year in construction, he entered law school, graduating from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 2012. Next, Rusty worked three years as a public defender for the State of South Carolina Circuit Court, Tenth Circuit, in Walhalla, SC. Then he moved back to Greenville and into private practice.
Rusty exemplifies the PLW commitment to church, family, and community. He attends Grace Church Downtown with his wife and two boys, and he volunteers at Jumpstart, a nonprofit that helps current and former prisoners transition back into society. For leisure-time activities, Rusty and his family enjoy time at the lake and on rivers whitewater kayaking. Rusty also enjoys building things with his hands, especially amateur woodworking.
When asked to name a hero, Rusty answers immediately: “I look up to my Dad (PLW Partner Douglas Patrick). He has practiced law a long time, and he has always done it the right way.”
Rusty enjoys sharing a workplace with his father; the learning opportunities are abundant. “He has been successful because he genuinely cares for those he represents,” Rusty says. “He will not sacrifice his morals to win a case, he treats the other side with respect, and his word is trusted.”
His Dad is also a great storyteller, Rusty adds.
Mr. Lewis is an amazing lawyer who takes a personal interest in representing his clients and does so with superior professionalism and integrity.He is very knowledgable and realistic in the law and expectations of case out come. He looks at all angles of the case before him to find every way he be of assistance to provide the best service and advise to his clients. He takes time to address client concerns and makes efforts to ensure that clients have a clear understanding of what is happening.
I chose Stephen Lewis as my lawyer because he is the best. This is my 2nd case Stephen is handling for me. When I first met Stephen, he told me he and his staff worked for me and when I had a questions or needed anything, he was a phone call away.
After my 1st wreck, Stephen advised me to increase my Underinsured automobile coverage. It was great advice because not long after that I was involved in a 2nd wreck and the at-fault driver had very little insurance. Because of Stephen’s good advice, I have enough insurance to make sure I’m protected.
Stephen takes time with you and makes you feel like family and is going to give you the best legal advice and best representation in a court of law. I have been 100% satisfied with Stephen. If you want the best lawyer in the State of South Carolina, you will hire Stephen Lewis.
Stephen managed this case as a highly professional and outstanding lawyer. However, getting to know him over the course of this case, I found a very good man with tremendous character, and strong integrity. I respect him tremendously has a person as much as,I do as a highly skilled Attorney.
