Renee E. Lewis, Esq. was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She became a family law paralegal in 2010. Renee’s passion for the law intensified and she wanted to become a lawyer and specialize in family law.  She is passionate about justice for New Mexican children and families.  During law school, Renee learned so much with her involvement in the Child and Family Justice Clinic which serves low-income families in New Mexico.

Renee is firm but fair.  Her fire comes alive when she sees the need to balance the scales.  She is a soothing and understanding trusted advisor and a warrior in the courtroom when needed. She fights for families to ensure they’re not being taken advantage of and that they get a just outcome.

Renee received her Associate of Liberal Arts from Central New Mexico (CNM) community college, a Post-Degree Paralegal Certificate from CNM, and a Bachelor’s of Science with a major in psychology and a minor in anthropology from the University of New Mexico (UNM). 

While attending UNM School of Law, Renee worked as a law clerk for the Law Offices of Darlene Gomez and continued to work with Darlene Gomez after law school.  Renee joined Genus Law Group in February 2023.  Renee practices Family Law, Probate, Estate Planning and takes on a few personal injury cases a year. She regularly volunteers for free legal clinics in several New Mexico counties which offer free legal advice to New Mexico residents.

Renee is President of the LGBTQ+ Section of the Bar and is a member of the Family Law Section of the Bar. 

Renee has a honored family history in New Mexico, and feels the strong work ethics in her soul of her ancestor, Elena Gallegos.  Born about 1680, Elena was the daughter of Antonio Gallegos and Catalina Baca of Bernalillo, New Mexico. After her husband Santiago Gurulé died in 1711, Elena conducted her own business affairs and was the first woman to record her own cattle brand in 1712. Much of what is now north Albuquerque is built on the 35,084 acre Elena Gallegos land grant.  Renee is proud of her heritage and proud to be a New Mexican.

In her free time, Renee loves to be active, and enjoys hiking, meditating, reading, and all things related to maintaining a conscious contact with her higher power.  Renee is a sober attorney.
