W. Blair Lewis (view ColumbusLawyerFinder.com profile)
Why did you decide to become an attorney?
I was working as an architect and realized that numerous legal issues arise in the design and construction industries. I felt my background as an architect and engineer would help me in representing clients in legal matters involving design, construction and real estate. I decided to continue working and go to law school at night.
What experiences (work and personal) help you to be a better attorney?
My experience as an architect and engineer has definitely helped me become a better attorney when dealing with construction and real estate issues. Also, my experience working for big law firms has definitely made me a better attorney.
What made you choose your primary area of law?
I began my career working for a design firm. While I was there, the firm was sued for negligent design. The lawsuit settled and my firm paid a significant amount toward the settlement. The problem that gave rise to the lawsuit was a construction, not a design problem. I have always felt that the only reason the firm didn't get out of the lawsuit without paying was because the lawyers did not understand the difference between a construction and a design issue. Ever since that law suit, I have wanted to help people and businesses with their legal issues involving construction or real estate.
What makes your law firm unique?
My firm brings big law firm experience to matters at a small law firm rate. Additionally, as a sole practitioner, I am able to deal with all the matters that come to my firm personally. No matter how small the matter, it is handled by me as opposed to an attorney without my background.
Describe your personal interests and hobbies.
I have a private pilot’s license and I like to fly little planes. I also like to play golf even though I'm not very good at it.
