Our Attorneys

Stephen Lewis, Esq. – Partner

Stephen Lewis, a seasoned attorney with over two decades of experience, is a prominent partner at the Eric Roy Law Firm. Renowned for his unwavering commitment to justice and formidable litigation skills, Steve has garnered praise for securing landmark settlements, solidifying his status as a legal luminary.

A pivotal moment in Steve’s career was achieving one of Nevada’s largest single personal injury settlements. Representing a young father who suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in a local casino, Steve’s team navigated years of litigation, over 50 court appearances, and limited settlement offers, securing a groundbreaking settlement exceeding $30,000,000.00.

In another case, Steve confronted auto and tire manufacturers in a lawsuit addressing known product defects. Despite initial offers falling short of covering the client’s extensive medical bills, Steve’s team filed suit. Meticulous litigation efforts unearthed crucial documents, revealing the defendants’ awareness of the issues leading to the client’s injury. The resulting settlement surpassed $5,000,000.00.

Several years later, Steve’s team faced a challenging case involving a local individual injured in a casino. The client suffered a TBI when an 80lb piece of decorative glass fell on her. Despite minimal settlement offers and aggressive litigation, the defendants settled for $3,200,000.00 on the eve of trial.

In a poignant representation, Steve advocated for the family of a man who perished under the care of a licensed senior care home. Despite the home’s denial of liability, strategic litigation resulted in a confidential seven-figure settlement.

Steve’s commitment to justice extends beyond Nevada, seen in a case involving a catastrophically injured woman in Hawaii. Filing suit against a strip mall for negligent property maintenance, Steve’s team secured a seven-figure confidential settlement just before trial, highlighting their prowess in advocating for clients nationwide.

With a track record against local, regional, national, and international entities, Steve has earned the esteemed “AV” rating from peers and judges, reflecting the highest level of professional excellence and ethical standards.

A graduate of a local Las Vegas high school, Steve earned his Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1995, and his Juris Doctorate from the University of the Pacific in 1998. His scholarly achievements extended to publication in the school’s Law Review during law school.
