About Me

I have had the honor of practicing law with my husband Charles Lane for the past 19 years. When a case goes to trial you will most often get both Charles and myself at counsel table (at the cost of one attorney only). We have an inate ability to read one another's minds and act instinctively in court. Charles has been practicing law over 30 years. In addition to criminal defense he also has an extensive background in personal injury; divorce and general civil litigation. We are both licensed in Federal Court as well and have been representing clients chaged with  RICO for over 10 years.

    Liz is an amazing lawyer, who seems to really care about her clients. I have repeatedly seen her go above and beyond for her clients and their families. She is very well respected among her peers and the judges!

    I highly respect Elizabeth Lane. She is an awesome attorney who genuinely cares about her clients and fights for good results for them. Ms. Lane knows, and is very well known, by every judge and every prosecutor in Cobb County. Her reputation is solid and I would not hesitate to refer clients to her. I endorse this lawyer.
