Biography Overview

William B. Lewis is a partner and manages the firm’s Southeast Florida offices.

William is an experienced trial attorney with an established track record of significant recoveries.  He has won jury trials, bench trials, and arbitrations in venues throughout Florida.  He has also recovered numerous settlements for his clients – many in excess of a million dollars.

William litigates cases on a contingency-fee basis, which allows his clients to level the playing field against larger, wealthier, or insured opponents. He is driven by the philosophy that justice requires cases to be decided on the merits – not by the size of a corporation’s or insurance company’s legal budget.

William has been named by U.S. News & World Report as one of The Best Lawyers in America. He has been recognized by Florida Trend Magazine as Florida’s “Legal Elite” – an award given by lawyers to less than 1.5% of fellow Florida Bar members. He has repeatedly been named a Florida Super Lawyers "Rising Star," which recognizes the top 2.5% of the state’s lawyers under the age of 40. And on multiple occasions he has been honored by his peers as one of Palm Beach Illustrated’s “Top Lawyers.”

William is actively involved in the legal and professional community. He has been appointed to multiple terms on the Florida Bar’s Committee on Professionalism. He has been the chair of the Palm Beach County Bar’s Circuit Civil Court Committee and the Business Litigation Committee.  And he was a South Florida Business Journal 40 under 40 honoree.

William is also a dedicated University of Florida alum.  He is the Immediate Past-President of the University of Florida Law Alumni Council after serving in multiple leadership positions. And in 2021 he was honored by the University of Florida Alumni Association as one of the 40 Gators Under 40.

Prior to joining Morgan & Morgan, William litigated large-scale antitrust cases. He also interned at the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the State Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted multiple successful jury trials while still in law school.

William graduated with honors from Colgate University and the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where he was a board member of the Florida Journal of Law and Public Policy, and received an MBA from the University of Florida Hough School of Business.
