Attorney Joyce Lewis, Shingler Lewis, Attorneys at Law
For more than 15 years, Attorney Joyce Lewis has represented private companies and governmental entities in all areas of litigation. Joyce’s trial experience includes serving as lead counsel in significant wrongful death and catastrophic injury claims, as well as business litigation, employment, and civil rights cases.
Joyce’s accomplishments in trial practice reflect her strategic and insightful approach to every phase of litigation. Beginning with early and aggressive attacks on the pleadings, she applies pressure to the opposition at each stage, up to and including trial. This strategy has allowed her to achieve positive results for her clients on the eve of trial, and at trial. Joyce has won summary judgment and Daubert motions in cases ranging from employment discrimination and defamation to negligence and mortgage fraud. She has argued cases before the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and has successfully appealed to Georgia’s Supreme Court. In addition to her trial practice, Joyce has negotiated confidential settlements in various stages of litigation in cases involving allegations of director and officer misconduct, legal malpractice, fraud, unfair competition, and discrimination and retaliation.
Joyce’s professional achievements are attributable to her ability to quickly assess and evaluate complex fact patterns, and to think “outside the box” when developing legal theories. In defending cases for her clients, Joyce has led dozens of thorough and effective fact investigations, and she delivers reliable, consistent results by ensuring that her litigation team remains focused on well-defined and well-articulated goals. Joyce’s tenacity, creativity, and high quality work product lead her clients to rely upon her when seeking top-notch representation with small-firm flexibility.
