Henry F. Lewis

Oakland, California

Henry Lewis has been practicing family law exclusively since he graduated law school and is a Certified Family Law Specialist. His approach to family law balances aggressive litigation with a focus on helping his clients make informed decisions as to how best to litigate their matter. This approach helps maximize the results for his clients, while keeping litigation costs as reasonable as possible. Henry has a facility for taking complex financial issues and breaking them down so that they are easily understood by both the client and the Court.

While handling all aspects of family law matters, Henry recently has been handling cases that include complex financial issues including complex intra-family financial dealings, complex tracings, business valuations, and alternative forms of compensation, such as stock options and Restricted Stock Units RSUs.

As a parent of two children, Henry is very much aware of the emotional issues that are naturally present in custody disputes, school choice and day care issues, as well as the day to day needs of children. He has experience in custody disputes of varying level, from disagreements over holiday schedules, to complex international move away cases.

In addition to his law degree, Henry also has a master's degree in community and social psychology, and has a certificate in Domestic Violence protection.

I first met Mr. Gardner when I desperately needed help with an out-of-control divorce and custody situation. He was very attentive, thoroughly responsive, and absolutely compassionate as he helped me regain mental focus and legal control. Few attorneys practice their craft with the level of transparency and trust Mr. Gardner's clients enjoy as a matter of routine. As a senior management professional in a large Bay Area organization, I truly appreciate Mr. Gardner's no-nonsense, trustworthy, experienced approach solving legal problems.
