Kathleen Lewis

VA Accredited Attorney

Commitment to Service:

There are few people in the legal profession who can say they love what they do, but Kathleen’s experience as a military spouse and a disability attorney makes this an extremely rewarding profession for her. She has personally experienced the challenges faced by service members and their families and believes that obtaining disability benefits from the VA should not be one of them.


Kathleen is the military spouse of a Naval Aviator, who was an F-35 flight instructor at TOPGUN. She is from Nashville, Tennessee, but has also lived in Oregon, California, Virginia, and Florida. Kathleen and her husband have one son together, who keeps them on their toes. She is an animal lover and still has her childhood horse that is boarded at a retirement farm in Tennessee (much to her husband’s dismay), as well as a diabetic cat and golden retriever. When she is not chasing her toddler around, she enjoys traveling, scuba diving, and going to Costco.

Legal Journey:

Prior to joining Bartlett Legal Group, Kathleen practiced as a workers’ compensation attorney for the largest injury law firm in America. During her time there, she advocated for thousands of injured workers, ensuring they received the disability benefits they were owed. She is now dedicated to using her experience to help veterans navigate the VA system.
