H. Lee Lewis focuses his practice on construction law and appellate law. Lee’s construction practice encompasses the full breadth of private and public construction law. Lee assists owners, contractors, and sureties in the drafting and negotiation of contracts, the administration of project obligations, and the preparation, prosecution, and defense of claims.
As an appellate attorney admitted to practice before the Washington Appellate and Supreme Courts and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, Lee has navigated clients through the unique appellate process in a broad range of legal areas, including breach of contract, construction defect, criminal investigation, procedural error, and class action. Lee also consults with trial attorneys to identify potential issues for appeal and provides guidance to ensure preservation of those issues if an appeal is necessary.
When not practicing law, Lee enjoys spending time with his wife, Sarah, and his daughter, Olivia, playing golf, wine tasting, and traveling.
