DALLAS – The Texas-based Family Law boutique Orsinger, Nelson, Downing & Anderson, LLP, is pleased to announce the addition of former state district judge Marilea Lewis and Lon Loveless. Both attorneys are well-known for their work in Family Law.

“Marilea and Lon are among the very best Family Law attorneys in Texas and their experience will only enhance the expertise that our clients expect from our firm,” says Keith Nelson. “It is rare that you have the opportunity to simultaneously add two such accomplished attorneys, and we are excited to be working together.”

“Having tried a number of cases before Marilea when she was sitting as a district judge, I know firsthand the legal acumen she brings to our firm,” says Scott Downing.

Both attorneys join the firm from the civil litigation powerhouse Godwin Lewis PC, where Ms. Lewis was a name shareholder and head of the Family Law practice and Mr. Loveless was a shareholder.

“I have known and admired the Orsinger, Nelson, Downing & Anderson leadership team for many years. The opportunity to join such an established, respected boutique that focuses solely in my practice area was simply too good to pass up,” says Ms. Lewis.

Ms. Lewis served two terms as judge of the 330th Family District Court in Dallas from 2002 to 2010 after serving as the court’s Associate Judge from 1992 to 2002. She also served as the Associate Judge of Dallas’ 305th District Court from 1986 to 1992. In addition to her Family Law practice, she is a certified general and family practice mediator.
