Get to Know Pacifica – Stacey Lewis
This week in Pacifica’s “Get to Know” series we are highlighting Stacey Lewis. Stacey is a partner and serves as lead attorney for Pacifica’s bond and/or disclosure teams.
Why did you choose your area of practice and what do you like most about it?
I enjoyed working in city government before I became a lawyer, and wanted to continue to work on public projects. It’s very rewarding to work as part of a team to deliver projects that matter to the various communities our clients serve.
Why did you choose to practice law at Pacifica Law Group?
Our mission statement expresses why we formed Pacifica Law Group. It speaks to how we want to treat others with care and respect, of our commitment to public service, and our ambition to create a law firm rooted in the Pacific Northwest with a stellar reputation. My shorthand description is that I wanted (and want) to do good, do it well and do it as a team.
What kinds of volunteer, philanthropic, or community events are important to you?
In addition to my own volunteer work for both professional and nonprofit organizations, I really enjoy supporting Alanna Peterson and now Nate Ku in organizing volunteer opportunities for our fellow Pacificans. We have done volunteer projects with the Low Income Housing Institute, Pike Market Food Bank, International Rescue Committee, the Special Olympics, Puget Soundkeeper Alliance, Food Lifeline, Vote Forward, Make-a-Wish Alaska & Washington, the Nature Consortium, YWCA, United Way’s Family Resource Exchange, Eastside Baby Corner, Forterra, and others. Our most recent project was painting houses for Tiny House Villages for homeless families.
What hobbies and activities do you participate in outside of work?
I play and watch lots of soccer. This summer I had the chance to play on the same team as my two sons: pure joy.
