  • Jay Paul Carmean

    When I think of someone being injured, I think of Lance. He has the energy and spirit of someone twice his age. I'm honestly jealous of his vigor. If you or a loved one is injured and need someone to fight for you, Lance is the man.

  • Cynthia I Mitchell

    Lance is one of the smartest lawyers I know. He is well-respected by both plaintiff and defense bar and by the courts.
