Attorney Youd has assisted me with creating and updating my Will. I have found Lance and his staff to be efficient, professional and easy to work with. Lance has a personal touch and ability to make you feel as though your case is the most important case that he is handling. Attorney Youd is extremely competent and very knowledgeable about the law. I was confident that he was taking the correct actions and offering me legal advice that was legally creative and thorough. I have since turned to him for other legal issues. He is quick to respond and clearly answers my legal concerns. I have several friends who have hired Lance for legal counsel, he comes highly recommended by them as well. I am confident that if you hire Attorney Youd your legal expectations will be more than satisfied!!
Lance is the best attorney I've worked with. He is an excellent negotiator, personable, and experienced. Lance didn't mince words when the going got rough. He dealt with me directly in an honest and fair manner. When Lance had to advise me on some difficult stuff that I didn't want to hear or deal with, I felt that he represented my interests well. I knew where I stood constantly because he kept me in the loop either by phone, letters, or emails. I'm glad I had him on my side during a difficult period in my life.
Lance is, in my opinion the best lawyer in the Salem area, for the type of legal work that he does. I hired Lance to see my daughter more, after my divorce and he has been GREAT!
He's worked in the area a long time and has built up a reputation that works well with other professionals that may need to be hired to assist in your case- (as was needed in mine.) With prior lawyers, things seemed to just drag along and nothing really changed. With Lance, I saw immediate improvements in spending time with my daughter and I know that from here, things will only improve with Lance's skillful legal knowledge and expertise.
Though Lance is not a "cheap" lawyer; as with a lot of things- well you get what you pay for. In my experience you can hire a lawyer for less money, but end up with nothing to show for it- or very little results; thereby wasting thousands of dollars.
With Lance, his knowledge and attention to detail is sharply focused and I believe that is one of the keys to the successful outcome in my case. His billing hours are also fair- a sometimes rarity in today's world!
I strongly recommend Lance for any type of legal work.
Lance and his team are very knowledgeable and supportive, which I truly appreciated during a very difficult time in my life. All of my questions and concerns were answered in a way I could understand, and in a timely manner. Lance fought for my best interests and I am very pleased with the outcome. Besides being an excellent Attorney he is compassionate and discrete and tried to spare me the anxiety of confrontation whenever it was possible. Thank-you Lance!
We were so lucky to find Lance Youd as our attorney after our motorcyle/car accident in 2005 (and again in '09). An unisured driver caused us to crash our motorcyle and fled the scene. Our motorcycle was totaled and I spent a week in the hospital. The driver of the car had been drinking. Lance made sure that our insurance company covered us since we had "full coverage" auto insurance on our motorcycle. If not for Lance, we wouldn't have gotten the hospital bills paid or the value of our motorcyle replacement. THANK YOU LANCE!!
