Stephen, PLW’s Managing Partner, has always been competitive — first in sports, then in law school trial competitions, and most decidedly in professional practice. For almost as long, he’s felt a calling to make a difference in people’s lives. Being a trial lawyer is an ideal outlet for his competitiveness and his compassion. He represents people whose voices must be heard and whose stories must be told.
For more than 30 years, Stephen has successfully represented clients in jury trials throughout the Upstate of South Carolina. Intent on providing unmatched representation, he continually studies the fine points of personal injury, business, and related litigation strategy. His client-focused, listen-first approach and litigation experience have resulted in verdicts and settlements worth millions of dollars.
Born in Rock Hill, SC, Stephen earned a Bachelor’s degree in political science at the University of South Carolina. He developed his love of the courtroom as a member of the University of South Carolina Law School Trial Competition Team, winning the Law School competition and moving on to compete in the National Trial Competition. Stephen was admitted in 1989 to the South Carolina courts and the federal District Court for the District of South Carolina. In 1990, he added the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit to his admissions. A small sampling of Stephen’s professional associations includes:
Likewise, Stephen’s inclusion on national and statewide Super/Best/Elite Lawyers lists is extensive.
Stephen believes strongly in giving back to local, state, and global communities. That commitment has been reflected in his participation with church youth group mission trips and in his lifelong service to Palmetto Boys State, a leadership program sponsored by the American Legion.
Early each summer, more than 1,000 high school students from throughout South Carolina come to the Anderson College campus for a week. They become citizens of Palmetto Boys State, where they learn about government and politics by participating in a mock governmental system. They also get to know other teens from entirely different walks of life.
“We try to instill in them the values that we believe are important in good leadership,” Stephen says. He’s been involved with the organization for 41 years, the past 17 as Director. Stephen attended the program himself as a teen in 1981.
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.
