A message from Jim lewis regarding lawyers, family and justice.


jimfamilyI’m proud to be an attorney. Throughout my childhood I was proud to call my father a lawyer, and then a judge, well into my adult years. He was very well respected throughout the county and state where he practiced.


Since I was in elementary school I knew I would be a lawyer, like my Dad, because lawyers helped people who were in dire need and worked to achieve justice. I still believe that today and I’m so blessed to be able to serve the best interests of my clients while working to protect access to the courts and therefore the rights of people in our community and in the State of Texas. My Dad taught me that success as a lawyer, and justice, are not easily achieved, but could be obtained only with hard work, experience, and respect for our Constitution and the judicial system it created.


It is the hard work of lawyers that has maintained and expanded the constitutional rights and freedoms of the people. Since 1987 I have worked hard toward this goal as a trial and appellate lawyer.


When I hear people quote Shakespeare saying “first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers”, I am pleased if they know the context, but saddened if they do not, and choose to use it in a way that disparages my profession. It is sad that, with “lawyer jokes” people now seek to discredit lawyers as a social cancer, using the very same “jokes” that some misguided people used to tell for the purpose of denigrating African Americans or people of Jewish faith or heritage. The fact is, Shakespeare’s quote is a compliment to attorneys and judges who instill justice in society. In “Henry VI,” part II, act IV, Scene II, it is Dick the Butcher, a follower of the rebel Jack Cade, who suggested killing all the lawyers as a method of disrupting law and order so he could become King. 


In serving to protect the Constitution and the interests of justice as a lawyer, I am also protecting the freedoms my family, neighbors and community enjoy; and that makes me proud. I am proud of all of those who serve the interests of freedom and justice.
