Darnisha A. Lewis-Bonilla


As an experienced litigator and former prosecutor, I have handled cases from inception to verdict. I have tried both jury and non-jury cases, including felony and misdemeanor criminal cases. I have extensive experience working with victims and individuals with special needs.

Now, I am using my strong litigation skills to tackle personal injury cases and seek justice for injured parties.

Currently, I am a Litigation Associate in the Personal Injury Department in the Melville office. I handle case management up to, and including, trial for catastrophic motor vehicle injury cases. I work tirelessly to address the individual needs of each client, as no two cases are alike. My compassion, zealous advocacy, trial experience, and optimistic attitude set me apart from the rest.

When I am not helping clients, I enjoy reading, travelling the world, and making memories.
