Ronald (Ron) W. Lewis, JD, Lawyer at the Lewis Law Firm, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Lawyers for dedication, achievements, and leadership in Private Practice.
Mr. Lewis has been running a private practice in Oxford since 1988, and is well regarded as one of two lawyers that sued the state of Mississippi for civil rights discrimination and spying in the 1970s. At the time, he was a lawyer for the ACLU, and stood up for many people hurt by those activities. Mr. Lewis was a journalist and blacksmith before entering the field of law, which he did because he felt he was a better advocate than as a journalist. He is now an AV Preeminent rated attorney with Martindale-Hubbell, as well as a recipient of the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award who has appeared in Who’s Who in America, Who’s Who in American Law, and Who’s Who in the South and Southwest.
Born in Buffalo, New York to George Weber and Marianne Lewis, Mr. Lewis earned an AB from Dartmouth College in 1965 and a MAT in French from Harvard University in 1969. He attended the University of Mississippi to earn a JD in 1978, and opened his first private practice from 1979 until 1981. Mr. Lewis has held numerous roles, particularly with the Lafayette County Democratic Executive Committee and the ACLU of Mississippi. Mr. Lewis is the proud father of Joshua Byron, Kristopher Byron, Katherine Byron Lewis, Jennifer Pierce, Alex Owens, and Annalise N. Lewis, as well as grandfather to Ruby Lewis.
