“If You Believe, You Will Attain.” From a very early age and while watching Perry Mason on television Tamalyn E. Lewis believed she would be the first attorney in her family. That belief empowered her to achieve her dream and more. “I had a wonderful childhood being raised in Safford by loving parents who encouraged me to be the best I could be and to strive to attain my dreams,” Lewis says. Lewis grew up being a “big fish in a little pond.” “Little did I know that I would also be a named partner in a prestigious law firm,” Lewis says. Today her practice areas are in bankruptcy, receiverships, commercial litigation, real estate transactions, business transactions, and agricultural law for Ridenour, Hienton & Lewis, PLLC of Phoenix. Her focus is on representing the interests of financial institutions, companies and individuals in the complex and often confusing world of Chapter 11 bankruptcy. She gained experience early in her career while in Dallas during the early 80s when bankruptcy filings began to surge due to speculative real estate development. “Practicing bankruptcy is the best of all worlds as one is exposed to many facets of each different type of business, including operations and development.” Professional and personal growth is a natural product of such an intense focus, she says. “Counselor of Law” is more than just a title. Lewis takes the meaning of “Counselor of Law” to heart so that she can find a resolution that is in the best interests of her client. “Although litigation may be necessary, the needs of the client are far better served when one is focused on achieving a consensual resolution. Listening to the needs and objectives of my clients and those voiced by opposing counsel enables me to negotiate that resolution,” she says. Her working environment is a key element in her success. “I am grateful to be practicing with a brilliant and talented group of attorneys. Drawing upon their expertise permits me to excel. Our firm’s culture promotes professional growth and strongly encourages all in the firm to reach out and serve the needs of the community. We are shooting for the stars in 2012.” Lewis is married to Jack Hebert, has a daughter and two married step children. She is a Master with the Arizona Bankruptcy American Inn of Court, a board member of Center Dance Ensemble (the modern dance company in residence at the Herberger Theater), grade level advisor of class 2016 of the National Charity League-Camelback Chapter, and an active parent of the St. Theresa Catholic School community. Ridenour, Hienton & Lewis, PLLC is a 30 year-old, multipractice law firm practicing a wide range of areas, including corporate and financial transactions, real estate, commercial litigation, bankruptcy and private client practice. The firm is a member firm of Lawyers Associated Worldwide and was selected as one of the 2011-2012 Best Law Firms by U.S. News & World Report. It’s a big step from watching Perry Mason to practicing law, but Lewis would say that big steps – giant strides – are possible when you believe.
