I have had the pleasure of working opposite Lance in numerous cases over the past 20 years. He is very experienced, professional and always well prepared for court. He is also extremely responsive to the needs of his clients and is a zealous advocate for them in court. I would not hesitate to recommend him to handle any type of family law or personal injury matter.
My best friend told me to hire Lance when my ex husband and I decided to divorce. She told me Lance was the best...and she was right. I had already moved to a different city (almost two hours away) by the time I hired him. He was always careful to respect the time I could spend with him as he knew I traveled to get there. Lance knows the law and carefully answered any questions I had. He always made sure that I felt comfortable and that I knew he was working hard for me. He was patient and smart with my case. and made certain that I got what I deserved in the divorce. He was also sure to always inform me of anything that was being done in his office or in my ex's office that affected the case. I felt like he was truly a friend that was only interested in what would be the best for me and my future as we navigated this path toward the divorce. In the end, everything was settled outside of court and exactly as we had worked for. I would absolutely recommend Lance to anyone who needs a lawyer in the Griffin/ Spalding County area...he is absolutely the best!
My ex husband and I had unusual circumstances and wanted to file for divorce online. Once we attempted to look through all the papers , and all of the legalities we had questions. We knew of Mr. Owens through friends and he came highly recommended. He sat down with both of us and answered everything we needed to know. We then just went ahead and hired him to help us through our divorce proceedings. Our divorce was uncontested and Mr. Owens made sure that we both felt we were getting 50/50 in this difficult process. He explained and was very delicate with dealing with us both. He listened and was very honest in decisions we needed to make that would be beneficial for us and our family. He is extremely reliable and thorough. He made a very difficult process as smooth and it could possibly go.
I had no idea where to begin when I found out from my husband that "we" were getting a divorce. I never saw myself ever being in this position. I asked around and kept getting referrals to the same attorney... Lance Owen. When I met with Mr. Owens I was extremely nervous, but he made me feel very comfortable right away. Within a few days he had my husband served with divorce papers. I honestly think he was shocked because, I found out later, that he had tried to hire Mr. Owen. My husband ended up hiring another lawyer that was supposed to be a good one (at least according to what I read on this website). He and his lawyer tried to drag everything out to make me give up, but Mr. Owen was "my rock". I listened to him and I believed in him. At the end of the day my ex came to the table and gave me pretty much everything what I wanted. I just don't know what else to say except to hire this guy! Thanks!
When I realized that I was in need of an attorney, I had no idea who to contact. A close friend told me about Lance Owen. She said he is a good guy, but is very aggressive. I found both statements to be true. I was treated with professionalism and respect by him and his office staff. His goal was to help me achieve financial fairness. I had a complicated divorce situation and I had no idea what to do. Mr. Owen kept me informed on the progress in my case and what the next step would be. He always offered me advice that was in my best interest, even if I sometimes disagreed. I was represented by Mr. Owen with fairness, and was treated as a person and not just like one of his many clients. He also expressed a knowledge of the law in a manner that gave me comfort and confidence. I would not hesitate to refer anyone in need of a competent attorney to Lance Owen.
Mr. Owen is truly impressive ! His knowledge of the law and it's process is thorough and concise. Although, what is most impressive is his character. He was patient and genuine with my concerns as I went through a difficult time. I always found Mr. Owen accessible when I had a question. I never felt I was "on my own", he was always working to move the case forward. The office staff was helpful and polite anytime I had and appointment or called. I am pleased with the outcome of my case and feel very lucky to have found Mr. Owen.
Mr. Owen has been my attorney for over 5 years throughout my divorce and protracted custody fights. I was completely inexperienced in these matters, and Mr. Owen not only guided me through the process, but spent a great deal of time and effort explaining the law and the process. I found the depth and breadth of Mr. Owen’s knowledge and experience of the law and process to be extremely valuable in handling my case. Not only did Mr. Owen concentrate on the law and process, but also used his knowledge and experience with the personalities involved such as the opposing attorneys and the judge to craft a comprehensive strategy. Mr. Owen used his experience and knowledge to negotiate when possible, and fight when necessary to protect my children and me.
From the very first meeting, Mr. Owen and his staff impressed me with not only their professionalism, but even more important the kind and caring way they, and especially Mr. Owen, treated me as a person and not just an abstract case to be managed. Mr. Owen spent many hours listening to my concerns, answering questions, going over the history and issues involving my case, going over documents, and building our case. Mr. Owen kept in constant communication with me, patiently listening to me as the issues evolved, constantly adapting and evolving our strategy in an effort to gain the most favorable outcome possible. In comparison to the opposing attorney, not only was Mr. Owen vastly more knowledgeable about the law, but also in his preparation in the issues of the case. Mr. Owen spent many hours insuring that he was able to present documentation and case law to support our position on every issue. Most importantly, Mr. Owen spent a great deal of effort insuring that we did everything possible to protect my children and address their needs. Mr. Owen frequently showed the courage to fight to protect my children, even going so far as to keep me focused on what was best for the children. Mr. Owen worked hard to keep us focused on what was important and not get distracted by meaningless issues.
The simple fact is Mr. Owen, throughout the entire process, made me feel that mine was his most important case. He worked diligently to keep me informed, educated about the law and process and to alleviate the many fears I had about the process. I cannot imagine trying to navigate this process with any other attorney than Mr. Owen.
"My situation was complex in regards to my case; paternity, legitimation, and establishment of child support for my two children. Lance took time to sit down and listen to my multiple concerns and issues. He provided answers to my questions, reassurance for my concerns and developed a plan to get my issues resolved. I was impressed by his knowledge of the law and diligent efforts to collect information and evidence regarding my case. Both he and his office staff kept me well informed throughout the course of my case. His performance in the courtroom was flawless as he quickly brought issues regarding my case to light and got the results my children deserved. The outcome of my case was outstanding and was above and beyond anything I expected. I would highly recommend Johnston, Owen & Bullard to anyone seeking legal representation".
Over the last 6 ½ years, I have employed Lance Owen to represent my interests in no less than 5 civil matters. When I first met with him, he told me to feed him as much information as possible about the case, listen to him carefully, and follow his instructions. I can tell you truthfully that this formula works when you are working with Lance. His extensive knowledge of the law, his clear understanding of the dynamics of our justice system, and his articulate skill in the courtroom have placed him far ahead of his opponents in my experiences working with him. His staff is always very prompt, professional, and courteous, and Lance, himself, is always easily accessible. I never feel like I am more than a phone call or email message away from a discussion with him or from an answer to a question, and he moves quickly on things when it is time to take action. In my opinion, Lance sincerely takes ownership in the outcome of my legal matters, as he has immersed himself in thoroughly understanding the facts and issues of each one.
Lance Owen handled my divorce case. He was extremely knowledgeable of laws and requirements and I appreciated his complete openness and honesty about what could potentially happen. He was also very personable and seemed to genuinely care about me and my situation. He continually stayed on top of the case to ensure that processes, at least on our side, ran as quickly and as smoothly as possible. I was overly excited about the outcome of the case and I actually cried as the judge laid out what I would get in the divorce. Had it not been for the diligence and competency of Lance, I don't think the outcome would have gone as well. I would definitely recommend him to anyone seeking a divorce.
