Glenn C. Lewis, Esq., and the Lewis Law Firm
Also known as Glenn C. Lewis
He was one of the legal giants of the Washington area, a former president of the Virginia Bar Association, an acknowledged dean of the divorce bar. Now, lawyers around the region are wondering: Where is Glenn Lewis?
Now Lewis, 59, has mostly vanished from the legal scene. His spacious law office in downtown Washington has closed. He has been accused recently of taking clients’ money, doing nothing for them and refusing to return the money. After a sheaf of bar complaints was filed against him, he did not respond to a Virginia State Bar subpoena, and last week his law license was suspended. He faces legal judgments of more than $1 million. His house in Oakton has been foreclosed upon. Finally last week, Lewis filed for bankruptcy.
It’s been a stunning collapse for the colorful and outspoken Lewis, who proudly declared his hourly rate of $850 to be one of the highest anywhere, and who had an active law practice as recently as November
