Completing her studies at Indiana University Maurer School of Law, Columbus, Indiana native wasn’t sure exactly what specialty area of the law she wanted to make her life’s work. She knew only that her career needed to be devoted to helping people. True to that intention, she spent years serving on countless boards of non-profit groups and clubs. Most recently in law school, Lewis served on the executive board of the pro bono Tenants Assistance and was an active member in the pro bono Immigration Project and Women in the Law Society.
When it came time for her to clerk for the summer, Lewis asked friends and colleagues for recommendations. Serendipitously, she was steered to Geyer & Associates, where she served as a summer associate both her 1L and 2L summers. Learning, to her delight, the extent to which the Geyer & Associates’ mantra “Compassionate Counsel for Every Generation” had become an integral part of every aspect in the practice, Lewis knew she had found the right place to launch her career.
Today, as Geyer & Associates’ newest associate attorney, Ms. Lewis is a member of the Indiana State Bar Association, where she has become active in the Elder Law and Probate, Trust & Real Property Sections. Ms. Lewis is also an active member of the Indianapolis Bar Association, where she participates in the Estate Planning and Administration Section and its Women and the Law Division.
Kimberly Lewis has gotten involved in the local community since joining Geyer & Associates, joining OneZone, the Hamilton Country Chamber of Commerce and its Young Professionals Division.
Lewis’ excitement over finishing law school and launching her law career was marred when, earlier this year, she lost her own beloved father. Lewis hopes the experience of losing a loved one and serving as administrator for his estate will help her better guide clients through the process of estate administration and make her a better attorney.
Every day, Kimberly Lewis becomes more and more involved in her work in elder law, estate planning and estate administration at Geyer & Associates. As she’d always imagined as a student, elder law and estate planning are all about helping people.
