Daniel Lewis is a zealous and compassionate advocate of individuals injured and impacted by mass torts, product liability, and other large-scale litigation matter. Prior to joining HMG, he spent several years as a solo practitioner who primarily represented his clients in multi-million-dollar corporate and domestic disputes. Whoever the plaintiff may be, Daniel’s vision for success has always been maintaining a firm understanding of the underlying case facts, aggressive yet fair negotiation of claim resolution, and robust empathy for the human component of litigation.
During law school, Daniel worked as a legal extern for Tennessee’s 23rd Judicial District Attorney’s office in West Tennessee on the Holly Bobo kidnapping, rape, and murder trial. The six-defendant case was attended by a search and rescue party numbering 10,000, and garnered national news coverage for years. He used straightforward communication with sensitivity to assist in guiding the young girl’s family throughout the DA’s prosecution of the men.
Daniel has played an integral role in mass tort actions across the country for plaintiffs. These cases have included the following: 1) Waste Serv. of Decatur, LLC v. Decatur County, Tenn, a toxic tort by a rural West Tennessee county against a landfill management company and industrial waste producers concerning groundwater contamination resulting from aluminum dross & slag disposal and EPA violations involving complex lab analyses and regulatory disclosures; and 2) Phillip v.
