I am extremely grateful to have had Attorney Joe Lewis by my side at a most difficult time. I can never thank him enough for his guidance, support, and generosity in helping me. He was encouraging with his advice while still being respectful of my wishes. Through a most difficult divorce, he was patient with me, professional, and yet with his friendly demeanor and sense of humor, he was able to make me feel at ease and well taken care of; that indeed he did, putting much time and energy into my case. His expertise and talent in the court room at a final hearing was astounding; he was amazing and did a phenomenal job, ultimately leading to an excellent ruling in my favor, under difficult circumstances! Thank You Mr. Joe Lewis.

I strongly recommend working with Maryellen Sullivan. My mother and I recently met with Maryellen to review my mother’s will, powers of attorney, and investment portfolio. Maryellen listened carefully to my mother’s concerns and offered honest and thorough advice that was easily understandable.

I met Joe Lewis with the misconceptions that all lawyers just want your money. They are ruthless, heartless, and don’t care about the situation at hand. From the beginning from the first interaction, Joe made my wife and I feel comfortable.

Simply put, Joe Lewis is awesome. Friendliness, compassion, practicality, and professionalism come naturally to him.

I used Port City Legal for a employment contract dispute, and I received 100% of my desired settlement within a couple of days of Joe contacting the employer.

I obtained Port City Legal specifically Joe Lewis as my attorney in a parental rights and responsibility case. Joe met all my expectations and really made it a positive and affordable experience. Without his help I may not have been able to come to a resolution prior to a trial. I am very glad I found such a fantastic representative.

Joe Lewis was my divorce attorney and guided me through all aspects of this difficult life experience. He is very knowledgeable, approachable, organized and is a great negotiator. He helped me through this painful process patiently. He explained things in layman’s terms and advised me of my options resulting in informed decisions. He returned calls and emails in a timely manner and kept me informed at all times. Joe is an excellent attorney and a man of integrity which is clearly displayed in his work. I highly recommend him whether you have a complicated family issue or a simple one.

From the initial phone call to the final signing of my POA and will, Maryellen was incredible. She embodies professionalism and offered knowledgeable guidance and advice. I felt completely at ease and confident. Maryellen made the experience of making a will very simple and straightforward. I am extremely pleased with Maryellen’s expertise and highly recommend her.
