Attorney Paul F. Lewis

Paul spent nearly three decades practicing law with two terrific Seventeenth Street firms, Sherman & Howard, LLC and Moye White, LLP, before he decided it was time for the next great adventure and formed his current firm in 2012.

Paul is a 1984 graduate of Stanford Law School, a 1981 graduate of Weber State University, and a 1974 graduate of Manitou Springs High School.

Paul has a general business practice, emphasizing commercial litigation, intellectual property protection, employment, and transactional matters. Paul also serves as a mediator in complex commercial disputes.

Paul has the highest possible Martindale-Hubbell peer rating, AV® Preeminent™.

Paul’s view of the practice of law is best summarized in an aspiration written by his former law partner, Charles Luce: “A good lawyer will walk through fire to accomplish his client’s goals. He also has the sense not to carry a client into a burning house, even if that is where the client wants to go.”

Attorney Michael D. Kuhn

Michael Kuhn, a founding shareholder of Leventhal Lewis, is widely regarded as one of Colorado’s preeminent civil litigation attorneys. He works in the firm’s Colorado Springs and Denver offices.

Michael Kuhn - Rising Star Sophisticated clients from across the country — both individuals and business entities — seek out Michael’s legal abilities. They do so for good reason: Over the last several years, Michael’s peers in the legal community have nominated Michael for more “Top Attorney” nominations than any other attorney in the region. He has been selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers for each of the past five years.

In the words of one prominent attorney in Denver, “Michael Kuhn is the best civil tactician I know. A chill would run down my spine if I saw him on the other side of a case.” Whether in meetings, in trial, in arbitration, or on appeal, Michael’s no-nonsense approach typically obtains excellent results for his clients. As another employment attorney describes, “If you’re looking for a hug, Michael isn’t your guy. If, however, you want to win, he’s your best choice.” Michael’s candor and integrity have caused him to be a trusted advisor and advocate.

From small disputes to bet-the-company litigation, and from jurisdictional arguments to constitutional challenges, Michael’s experience is as broad as it is successful. His work has resulted in numerous favorable outcomes as well as published opinions in state and federal courts.

Trained initially as an economist, Michael is an Order of St. Ives graduate of the University of Denver College of Law where he earned the highest grade in Civil Procedure, Advanced Civil Procedure, Employment Discrimination Law, Real Estate, Criminal Procedure, and Agency, Partnership, and the LLC. Before he helped establish Leventhal Lewis in 2013, Michael practiced in both the litigation and employment departments of Sherman & Howard LLC, one of the Mountain West’s leading firms. He welcomes the opportunity to be of service to clients and often accepts local counsel arrangements.

Michael serves as a trustee on the El Paso County Bar Foundation, an active member of the Ben S. Wendelken Inn of Court, and an attorney advisor with Colorado Springs Teen Court.
