From working at the American Civil Liberties Union of Tennessee and Transgender Law Center to opening his own practice, Lucas has represented clients in civil rights matters. He made headlines as a juvenile justice & health law and policy fellow when he investigated and pursued civil impact litigation regarding federal and state due process, cruel and unusual punishment, and equal protection rights for children charged with crimes as adults and held in solitary confinement in adult state prisons prior to trial, resulting in legislative enactment of 2018 Tenn. Pub. Acts No. 1045, effectively making the conditions of confinement safer for all children in custody in Tennessee. Lucas also completed a year-long AUCD fellowship in health law policy and disability rights law with University of Tennessee's Boling Center for Developmental Disabilities and Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. As an energetic and innovative lawyer, Lucas works to make the law more equitable and inclusive for all people.
