Since 1972, except for a two year term on the Diostrict Court bench, Lewis has been in private practice of law representing clients in civil and criminal cases in District and Superior Courts. His civil law practice consisted of representing clients in workman's compensation cases, automobile accidents, real estate transactions, and corporate matters.

Since 1993, Lewis has handled Superior Court and Workman's Compensation mediations primarily in Eastern North Carolina. Formerly a partner with Mediation Inc. from 1993, in 1998 he formed WLS Mediations Inc, to pursue his ADR practice fulltime.

During the past sixteen years he has mediated approximately 4,000 cases involving motor vehicle accidents, real estate matters, corporate matters and construction matters.
