Victoria Lewis-Dunn JD.
Victoria Lewis-Dunn lives a life that is personally and professionally dedicated to public service. Ms. Lewis-Dunn is the recipient of a BS degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Texas at Arlington and a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Texas School of Law. She uses her legal knowledge and her understanding of the criminal justice system to facilitate social change in marginalized communities.
Fueled by a deep-seated desire to know the rules, understand the exceptions, and have both applied equally, Ms. Lewis-Dunn established a successful litigation practice. However, she eventually transitioned into a full mediation practice specializing in cases involving family and criminal law. Gifted with extreme patience and keen intellect, she created special programs for juvenile and adult clients that were accepted by prosecutors and judges alike. Currently, in an effort to reach more people, Ms. Lewis-Dunn has expanded her specialties to include her certification as an Offender Workforce Development Specialist (OWDS), Reentry Employment Specialist (RES) trainer, and Nonprofit Leadership and Management expert.
Born and raised in Waco, Texas and having a family history steeped in law enforcement and/or ministry, Ms. Lewis-Dunn developed, at an early age, the passion to help others. She champions initiatives fueled by a genuine desire to improve relations between minority communities and law enforcement. Ms. Lewis-Dunn is often described as a relationship-builder even when confronted with hostility. She continues to perfect the mediation model she designed during her law school years by using negotiation skills that are second to none. She fights tirelessly to seek justice for all and is often heard repeating her favorite quote: “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.”
