Jonathan “JB” Lewis, managing partner of Massey Law Group in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Tampa-based Massey Law Group has expanded to Fort Lauderdale with an office led by Jonathan “JB” Lewis as the managing partner.

Lewis joins the 10-attorney firm from Hyman & Lewis in Fort Lauderdale. As a commercial litigator, he has advised financial institutions, private equity groups and other creditors in claims litigation, valuation proceedings, avoidance actions and bankruptcy cases.

The law firm offers transactional and litigation services to businesses and specializes in real property, business law and commercial litigation. The firm’s attorneys have over a century of combined legal experience.

“They help clients by taking time to get to know them and understand their businesses and challenges,” Lewis said. “This allows us to create legal solutions that align with the specific needs and goals of each client.”

The firm was created last year.

“The traditional law firm model is outdated,” founding shareholder Starlett Massey said when the firm was formed. “Our model incentivizes attorneys to provide clients with creative solutions and the rapid resolution of disputes” rather than building billable hours.

Massey serves on the Florida Bar committee for diversity and inclusion, and the firm emphasizes community involvement.
