Evan Lewis Portrait

Evan Lewis

Vice-Chair (Eastern Region)

Evan joined our board in March of 2019 and has also been a pro bono attorney volunteer for DRNC. He opened his own law practice in 2014 and resides in Beaufort County. Evan graduated with a B.A. in Economics from the College of William & Mary, earned his law degree from the University of Virginia School of Law, and has a great deal of experience in negotiating and litigating fair housing-related disability claims, including filing the first federal lawsuit to enforce the U.S. Department of Justice’s regulations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. He represents people with disabilities regarding their social security and VA disability claims. Evan has mobility impairments after sustaining injuries from high school and college sports. He admires DRNC’s board and staff members’ commitment and determination to achieve equality for all, and hopes to ensure that North Carolina’s residents with disabilities have a voice and champion across the board.
