5.0 stars 21 totalReview Troy Lanier
I have never been involved in a lawsuit in my 65 years.
An unscrupulous contractor had completed work for me in the above $50k range. It turned out to be shoddy as the faults were becoming evident not too long after all my checks had cleared. I asked the contractor to stand by what was promised, but not delivered, and he refused.
Asking other contractors then to evaluate what happened; they revealed I was cheated by gross overcharging for the work done. Also, much of what was done was improper; and cheaper materials were substituted than called for in the original contract for work.
After confronting the original contractor, he refused again any accommodation to fix the problems.
I hired Mr. Lanier at that time. He had my full trust and confidence immediately! Careful and patient he sifted through my initial emotional ramblings; quickly framed the legal issue; advised to the strength and weakness of my possible litigation; and presented an array of possible outcomes. He presented it all in layman's language.
He advised me on all this after initial discussions, evaluation of contracts, photos, his personal viewing of the damage, documents, canceled checks, and other factors. Very thorough. He also, at that time, advised of potential costs, possible duration of, and potential frustrations with the legal wrangling and proceedings.
The opposition, two different insurance companies, over many months, used every delay and presented every obstacle in their playbook to deter us from pressing it to a jury.
Masterful deposition work and legal filings by Troy. He also appeared on my behalf in court protesting to a judge the delays and demanding a trial date. The end result was court directed mediation as a first step. He masterfully navigated the mediation and provided wise counsel to me during it. I believe ALL that could be fairly obtained for me was. Weighing alternatives carefully, I agreed to settle.
When the final accounting was done Troy would have rightfully earned but, nevertheless, would have gotten more cash out of the settlement than I would have as the injured party. He forgave a portion of his earned legal fees to make things more equitable and beneficial to me. A generous act from a selfless man.
He checks with me weekly, as there is one loose end about a subcontractor doing work as part of the settlement, which is not yet completed. I have no doubt he will continue to follow up until it is properly closed and what was agreed to by all parties is fulfilled.... exactly.
I would not seek out any other lawyer if I needed representation ever again. He is imo the best of the best. I recommend him highly.
When we went to Troy we did so with only our preconceived notion of what to expect. What we received was the services of a man who was kind, considerate and always took the time to explain everything to us. He was honest and up front, did not mislead us and was always considerate. Troy kept us informed and when we were required to be involved he took the time to explain the process to us.
If you find yourself in a situation where you need a litigation attorney, I would only reccomend Troy Lanier. In my situation a judgement for over $300,000 had been awarded against me. I felt it was unjust and, through a reccomendation, contacted Troy. After a free consultation Troy agreed to take my case and after working dilligently for me my case was settled within six months my case was settled when the judgement and award of over $300,000 were dismissed. Troy and his staff were very thorough in preparing my case. They went to great lengths to collect information by researching numerous court and other documents as well interviewing and taking sworn affidavits from various witnesses. I hold a security clearance and my situation caused me an issue at work. I contacted Troy for advice and within four hours I had a letter from Troy that satisfied the issue. This judgement had showed up on my credit report. Troy took measures and worked tirelessly to have it removed. These were just a couple of examples of the numerous things that, I feel where, Troy went over and beyond in representing me. Troy always kept me informed as to the progress of my case. He is very easy to talk and listen to. I am by no means a legal expert, Troy always explained everything to me in language that I could understand. Troy and his staff were always accessible, never more than a phone call or e-mail away. I was very impressed that, considering his busy schedule, I never had any trouble contacting him. He was always available to me. If he could not answer the phone or an e-mail immediately he would, without fail, contact me within a couple of hours. The cost of his services are comparable with most of the litigation attorneys that I researched. But I will have to say that for the superb representation, comfort and peace of mind that I received from Troy and his wonderful staff I got a bargain. Maybe most importantly, even if my case had gone the other way I would still be writing this reccomendation. So again if you need a litigation attorney look no further than Troy Lanier

After trying two other law offices, I was at last being dealt with in a professional and reliable manner. If the service is too small, say so. Mr. Lanier was clear and precise in dealing with what can be described as a small case. His fees were reasonable and he gave me clear accounting of the work that was done. I was never in doubt that he was working on my case. His staff should also be commended.

Mr. Lanier is a very competent lawyer who I felt represented my interest in the case to the fullest extent. He is very knowledgeable and kept me informed at all times. Even though the settlement was not what Mr. Lanier wanted for me, I felt it was the best that I would get. I would highly recommend to anyone for Mr. Lanier to be their lawyer.

Troy Lanier successfully handled my lawsuit against an employer (a large and very well known company). I was extremely satisfied with his knowledge of the FLSA law and his ability to help me understand everything happening during the process. I received everything I wanted from the settlement thanks to his experienced tactics. He truly is down to earth and a honest professional. I have and will always continue to recommend Troy Lanier to anyone.

Troy helped us when our son went before a university student conduct board. From the first minute we met with him, we were extremely comfortable with him. He listened carefully to all of our concerns and explained things clearly when we had any questions. He helped us so much in preparing statements to give before the board and told us how we should appear before them. He truly went above and beyond what we expected! He was extremely empathetic throughout the whole process. We are so gratefull that friends recommended him and would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney. He was excellent!!!!
