About Me

Lana’s primary area of practice is real estate transactions. She represents individuals and businesses in connection with purchase and sale and leasing transactions in both the residential and commercial context. Lana’s clients appreciate her willingness to think creatively when issues arise that threaten the success of a transaction. They appreciate her determination and willingness to drive a transaction to completion and worry about the details.

Lana advises homeowners associations in matters related to corporate governance and property management issues. After the mortgage meltdown in 2008, Lana’s practice naturally expanded to counseling homeowners threatened by foreclosure proceedings, advising them of their options and walking them through the mediation, short sale or foreclosure process. Lana’s greatest reward for representing clients is being honored with their trust. She never takes a client’s trust for granted and is determined to earn it every day.

Lana recently expanded her practice to a new area. Having a heart for immigrants seeking to gain legal status to live and work in the United States, Lana advises aliens regarding their immigrant and non-immigrant visa options. She’s proud of her early successes serving the firm’s existing clients’ immigration needs and taking on new challenging matters.

    I endorse Lana Floyd. When I have a real estate question (whether it is about a lease or purchase and sale agreement), Lana is the attorney I turn to.

  • Kinnon William Williams

    Lana is a consummate professional. After opposing Lana on a restrictive covenant issue involving a parking lot case, I was so impressed with her insights into property development and drafting skills I have used her as a valuable resource for other clients and managed to convinced her to participate as a speaker with me on continuing legal education seminars. Lana represents her clients well and finds creative solutions to resolve her clients problems and address their concerns.
