Two years ago, Robert and Marbet Lewis decided that after more than a decade of leading alcohol practice groups, that they would start their own firm.

We are tapping into the innovative approaches of our clients and their commitment to diversity and inclusion in business and applying those values to our legal practice to add value to our services,” said Founding Partner, Marbet Lewis.
Two years ago, the Lewis’ decided to create a cutting-edge firm with their dynamic team bringing over 100 years of collective experience that offers the opportunity to do business differently.
