Excellent, professional and caring Attorneys
Eric Lane and his team were very professional and helpful. During our first conversation he took the time to help me get to know the firm and confirm that they could help me. I went in having no idea what to do and he handled all of my concerns. He made sure that I got everything I needed or was entitled to and that I understood everything that was happening. He was very effective in getting my case settled and supported me every step of the way. I highly recommend Lane & Lane for their excellent service.

Treats clients with care & respect
Eric me showed care and respect from the moment I spoke to him about my case. He helped me understand the law and my rights, as well as strategically navigate me through the processes we would have to follow. His approach is always consultative and gentle, yet his ability in the court room is firm and effective. He took time to understand my case, even learn the cultural nuances in order to devise the most compelling case possible for me. I will continue to rely on Eric Lane for any future legal needs.

Eric Lane
I chose Lane and Lane to assist me during my divorce. Everyone in the office was extremely professional especially Eric Lane. Eric always went above and beyond to help me during a very difficult process. He took the time to listen to my concerns and helped me to make informed decisions based on my situation. Eric negotiated a fair settlement which exceeded my expectations. I will certainly ask Eric to represent me should I need his services in the future.

Great Attorney-gets the job done!
Eric handled my divorce which took longer than it needed to, but not due to any fault on our side. Eric provided excellent representation and guidance during the entire process. He protected my interests and explained the good and bad of every choice that needed to be made. When push came to shove, he knew when to be agressive and when not to be. I highly recommend this firm to handle the struggles of family law.

Divorce revision
Thanks to Eric Lane for getting my divorce degree revised due to my Permanent medical disability. He assisted in making sure we had all perinate documentation to persue our case. He restored my faith in the judicial system after years of no one listening to my my side of the story.

The Best Lawyer You Can Have
Eric was the best lawyer I could have hired for my divorce. I honestly felt like in my conversations with Eric that he wasn't just my lawyer, but he was also my friend. I think it is very important that as you go through a divorce you have a lawyer that is going to fight for your rights and what you are entitled to. Eric did just that for me but more importantly he always told me what was fair and what I was entitled to. I can't thank Eric enough for his hard work he did for me on my case. Once the divorce was finalized, we walked out of the court room with exactly what we had hoped for. My ex wife was trying to take advantage of me and she and her lawyer had some very unreasonable positions. Eric fought hard for me and we got exactly what we had hoped for. I can't thank Eric enough! I highly recommend him!

Best of the Best
I can't say enough positive things about this firm. I dealt primarily with Eric Lane and he was nothing short of a "consummate professional". He was there for me at every turn in my case, ready to provide whatever support was needed by me. Not only was he able to deliver a satisfactory result in my situation, but he legitimately exceeded expectations. I don't hope to have to require legal representation again anytime soon, but if I do there is no doubt that I will be turning to Eric and company at Lane & Lane.

Very thankful for Eric!
Eric is great! I hired him to look over & draft up an agreement that my now ex husband and I came Up with. He was very thorough and pointed out anything that we had missed. What I appreciate the most about him is his level of empathy. I felt cared for during such a hard time in my life.

Excellent attorney
Eric came recommended to me in 2013 when I was going through a bitter divorce and custody fight. He's been there for me through every step of the way. It's been a long process and Eric has been there to guide me and fight for me. When I call the office, if he's available, he always takes my call. If he can't, he calls back. Always willing to explain things to me and take time out of his day to talk to me. I could not be where I am today without him. He's been amazing and supportive during a very stressful and difficult time.

Great Attorney!!!
Eric represented me in my cohabitation case against multiple attorneys and won! He was a caring attorney throughout my case and always kept in touch with me. His knowledge of the law was seen in my discussions with him and at trial. I highly recommend Eric to anyone looking for a family law attorney.

"I endorse this lawyer. I had a client who was purchasing a home, and at the same time, in the process of obtaining a divorce. I needed Eric's expertise and guidance on how to best protect my client from having her soon to be ex-husband from claiming any rights in the property. Eric was able to provide my client with guidance on the steps to take to best protect her property interests. I found Eric to be extremely knowledgeable and readily available to answer any questions I had. I would highly recommend Eric to any of my clients who are in need of a family law attorney."
