    • I recommend Lance Gill.

    I was referred to Lance from a friend. She raved at his level of commitment to her divorce case and how quickly he responded to her questions. He provided me detailed explanations and was always there to answer any and all of my questions. He is an affordable, hard working lawyer that was dedicated to my case and made sure I was happy with the results. I would highly recommend him to anyone that needs a divorce attorney. In fact, I referred him to a co-worker. She is over-the-moon happy with the service he has provided her.

    • I do not recommend Lance Gill.
    • I hired Lance 6-12 months ago.
    • Lance handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    As a seasoned real estate broker I have dealt with Lance Gill for many years and sent him most of my my real estate closings; he follows through and is knowledgeable. However, when I retained him to handle my divorce he quoted an upfront flat fee and bailed out when the going got tough. Prior to accepting me as a divorce client he had all the legal documents to review and he personally knew how my spouse's attorney operates, so he fully knew the game before offering his services. Once the opposing attorney started taking up his time he chose to withdraw from the case, and left me with a Motion to Withdraw - available on public record for all to see - whose language implies that I was the problem. I asked him to re-write it to state the real problems as reflecting his current health issues and frustration in dealing with the opposing attorney, which he had repeatedly stated in emails to me, but he refused. He did refund my fees. I would recommend him for procedural matters, but not as a fighter who plans to win, as he gave up as soon as the heat of battle commenced.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Pursuant to my ethical requirements, I withdrew from representing this client because he refused to follow my advice. At every turn in the process, he objected to or refused to participate in well expected matters. For example, when it came to routine discovery requests made by opposing counsel, this client responded that he would not provide the requested documents. This was only one exemple of this client's desire to stonewall the process. He also wanted to engage in endless irrelevant confrontation to no end. This is supported by the fact that opposing counsel filed a motion to compel against this client, who eventually had to provide the discovery requested.

      It is untrue that I withdrew because the work load was more than expected or because I was unaware of his wife's attorney's tactics as suggested by this client. Opposing counsel did nothing more than any other attorney would have or should have done in representing her client.

      To suggest that I was the problem in this case flies in the face of the facts. If one reviews the docket for this case, one would see that this client hired another well-seasoned attorney (after my withdrawal) who also withdrew from representing him. This client, per the docket, has now hired his third attorney. Since two divorce attorneys with over 25 years of experience (myself being one) withdrew from representing this client, it is clear that the problem was the client and not the attorneys he hired.

      I can say when I did work with this individual as a real estate broker he was just as unreasonable and difficult to work with as he was when I tried to represent him in his divorce case.

      This client's narrative of the situation that led me to withdraw is false. The main problem with this client in all matters is that he believes he is more intelligent than the professionals he hires to represent him. He believes he can simply dictate to everyone including the court what he will and will not do. As the case docket indicates, he learned his lesson very well.

      I had no choice but to withdraw from representing this client for the reasons contained in my motion to withdraw and as stated above.

    • I recommend Lance Gill.
    • I hired Lance 1-3 years ago.
    • Lance handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I hired him for my Divorce he went above and Beyond.
    For what little I paid him Deserved 3 times his fee .
    Saved me in potential thousands in payouts .
    If you want a honest Attorney Highly suggest you consider him .
    I wont say exact amount I payed him for my divorce but was under 2k.
    That was from start to Finnish I still won my Divorce very very Pleased .
    I hired him in June of 2012 my case ended march 2013 .
    You would be foolish to not at least talk to him when looking for a Attorney !!!
