Finding Passion in Trial Work
Lewis Fusco’s journey into the legal field was unexpected, as he initially had no intention of participating in litigation. He had dreamed of pursuing business law and working for the PGA Tour.

Unveiling the Truth: Wrongful Arrests and Assumptions
In his practice, Lewis has encountered numerous cases where individuals facing DUI charges were regular people who had an isolated incident or a lapse in judgment.

Lewis sheds light on these cases, exposing the skewed perspectives and biases that can result in innocent individuals being accused of a crime they did not commit.
The Game-Changer: A DUI Manslaughter Case
Lewis recounts the most significant case of his career, involving a DUI manslaughter charge. In this particular case, his client was under the legal limit, while the other driver involved had a permanent license revocation and was more than double the legal limit with both drugs and alcohol in his system. Despite the lack of evidence to prove who caused the accident, Lewis’s client was convicted based on a highly inflated medical blood result. This case highlights the complexities and challenges faced by defense attorneys in seeking justice for their clients.
