Ryan Lane and his office staff are to be commended. Mr. Lane represented me to modify a divorce regarding child support. I truly experienced justice with him. I told him several different outcomes I wanted as far as child support. He thoroughly explained why some things would I wanted were in line with child support law and why some things wouldn’t be good because they weren’t in line with the law. He is extremely knowledgeable and presented my case with such finesse that I was astounded! If you want a fair lawyer, Mr. Lane is your man!

Gets it done
Ryan has represented me for the past 3 years. The first year was for my divorce and the next 2 were for hearings when my ex did not follow court orders. Whenever I felt discouraged, Ryan and his team assured me to stay the course. They were very patient with my many questions. I would definitely recommend him!

Amazing Attorney
Ryan is an outstanding attorney that fights hard for his clients. I was going through a tough divorce and he took care of me and helped me get what was best for the kids. If you want someone that cares about your feelings and fights hard for what is best for you, I would 100% recommend Ryan!

Caring,Professional, Dedicated Attorney
I came to Mr. Lane with a custody issue. He listened, carefully and totally cared about my situation. He took the case and has went out of his way to help me. He and his team work hard to make sure that you are heard and that everything is explained. He is the best attorney I have ever met. He has been fighting for me since day 1 and I would recommend him to anyone especially grandparents who are fighting for custody of their grandchildren. He will go out of his way to help you. He treats you like family and his staff treat you like family.

Rockstar Attorney
Ryan Lane is a Rockstar, we came to him in our hour of need and he helped us get though a awful situation that went to trial by jury. Ryan won our case when were wrongfully evicted after asking our landlord to fix problems in the house. Ryan is Super smart, it’s amazing to watch him to do his thing in a court room and give 1000% for his clients. He is an artist in front of the jury, quick thinking and professional. Every interaction we had with him was a positive experience and always interesting. We could have not asked for a better attorney. Highly recommend is an understatement, 5 stars is not enough. Thank you Ryan Lane!

# 1 Lawyer
Mr. Lane was very professional and knowledgeable about the divorce/marital/family custody/military laws. Although it was a difficult process, he made it less stressful. He was punctual and ensured that I had all of the required information to execute the case successfully. He even has a great paralegal assistant who is always professional and friendly. I could have not chosen a better lawyer to handle my case! He was AMAZING. If I ever have another issue that requires legal assistance, Lane Law Firm will be #1 Choice with out any hesitation! Thank you Mr. Ryan Lane for all you have done.

Great divorce lawyer
I hired Mr. Lane as my divorce lawyer. He was exceptional as a lawyer. He helped me every step of the way and listened to me. He was very helpful and answered every question I had. He helped me get exactly what I wanted out of the divorce. He advised me that I deserved more then what I was agreeing to but I was afraid of fighting with my ex anymore. I was happy to just be out. He took what I wanted to do into consideration and helped me word everything so if I wanted to fight for more regarding custody and child support later then I would be able to. He did all this at a fair and reasonable price. I would definitely use him again in the future if needed and would recommend him to anyone.

Need a divorce attorney? He's your man
I have known Ryan for over a decade and when I found myself in need of a divorce, he was the first person I considered hiring to represent me. He was reliable, dependable, and quick to respond to my calls and emails. He shows the utmost professionalism and he certainly knows his way around a courtroom. His expertise in family law set my mind at ease from the start and he was able to execute last minute changes to our agreement with no problems whatsoever. His legal fees are reasonable and fair and I highly recommend Ryan to anyone.

Great ,great ,great
I seen ryan lane by referral from a buddy from work that was using him as well. I went to talk to ryan about a issue I had with the care and wellbeing of my child in which another attorney acted like i had no chance. Ryan had told me I had a case to in which to get custody of my child. I was skeptical at first because I had been burned before and this is south carolina and can be hard for a fatherto get custody. All ryan asked for was to get him the things he needed and he would do the rest. In turn from beginning to end everything he said that would happen, happened. He is a great lawyer and knows his stuff. If I ever need a lawyer again I will be using him. He made it where a me as a loving caring father could have custody of his little girl.

Upon an incident happening with my step daughter, my husband and I knew we had to make a move and fast! We were recommended to see Ryan for a consultation, well my husband did then I did and were hooked! He was professional, well organized and he knows his laws. Needless to say we had a case, we obtained what he said he needed and he delivered exactly what he said he would. We have custody of my husbands child! In the event we shall need legal services again there is no question he will be the one we go to.

Impeccable Attorney
Ryan is a true professional in every sense of the word. I went to him with a very complex divorce case that also involved a completely false criminal charge. He did everything in his power to not only get me away from a vindictive spouse, but also recommended a personal friend to address my legal issues. If you need an attorney who will always have your back, and is an absolute, relentless beast in the courtroom, you need Ryan Lane. Highly recommend!!!

An outstanding attorney that is a credit to his profession
Was introduced to Ryan by a lender when closing a real estate closing over 15 years ago. Ryan took his time explaining the HUD statement and answered all of my questions and was compassionate knowing I understood all of the details. He has since represented and closed several other investment property purchases. In addition, I have use Ryan to represent all of my Landlord Tenant actions and other legal affairs. He is very approachable and always a professional. The legal matters Ryan has represented my affairs, he has always been successful. If the legal action required a court appearance, Ryan is an excellent representative that always has my best interest at heart. I am amazed at his preparation prior to court and how he represents himself to defend our case. He is extremely knowledgeable and to remain on top of his profession, Ryan is the only attorney I've known that continues his education by attending education seminars and classes to remain a head of other attorneys that have become complacent. Also, Ryan has networked with other professionals to resolve any issue to always be successful and professionally represent me. He is my go to attorney! I would without any doubt recommend Ryan to my friends or anyone searching for a professional attorney.

Not all heroes wear capes!!!
Prior to my case, I searched through many attorneys and many were promising and wanted the money up front. When I came across Ryan lane, he was the total opposite. He didn't want the to retain me unless I locked it on what I needed to do to help my case. When I completed all my objectives to stand a chance in court I retained him. From there on out, he carried out his mission and never left me in any confusion. He spoke clear to me and always made time to contact me and keep me updated along with his amazing paralegal team. Theres no way to express how thankful I am that Mr Lane came in and saved my family. From here on out If ANYONE needs help in legal matters involving family matters, Mr Lane is the first name that comes to mind. Thank you so much again for all you've done Mr Lane.

Great Attorney and thoughtful Person
Mr. Lane is an intelligent, knowledgeable attorney. More than that, he seems to genuinely care about his client as a person. Answered texts at odd hours, offered advice at a moments notice and even offered to help with transportation. My case went just as he said it would and I was very happy with the outcome.

Amazing lawyer, Ryan Really Cared
Ryan, is a credit to lawyers in General and to lawyers in specific. I had been to several lawyers with my case, and each of them were nothing more than ambulance chasers in Shoddy Cheap suits. They didn't see me, they only saw dollar signs, I guess that how they afford those commercials that tell you to contact them when you collide. Yeah they are the ones thinking Green.

Out Standing, Quality Lawyer
I was a witness in a case, where Mr. Lane represented a defendant, I knew. I found him to be professional, organized and a true credit to his profession. Mr. Lane is to be commended in handling of a very hostile plaintiff who screamed, yelled and kept going back to charges that the Judge dismissed. Mr, Lane had more grace under pressure than other lawyers that I have dealt with in the past. If I ever find myself in need of a lawyer, I will run not walk to his firm and know that my case will be handled with the utmost professionalism and quality that anyone could ask for.

If you are looking for a great lawyer, look no further
Ryan and his staff are very professional. The office is very clean and set up nicely. When you walk in his door, you have a very welcoming feeling. There is always a clean pleasant fragrance that welcomes you right from the beginning. The sitting area is very comfortable unlike many other offices I have been in. Ryan has represented me in two different cases. One case he won almost six times the damages, and on the second case he won three times the damages. On both cases, I met with Ryan. He told me that we had a case. From the beginning he told me what to expect. If Ryan tells you that he will or can do something , then you can guarantee that it will be done. I would recommend Ryan to any one needing a lawyer as he is very knowledgeable about the laws.

Mr. Ryan Lane helped me with my child custody case as well as a living will and he made me feel like I was FAMILY. From the office staff... to the warm atmosphere... to the little puppy running around and greeting everyone.... I felt like I was part of the family. Everything was handled very quickly and didn’t cost an arm and a leg. I couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer... Thanks Ryan!!!!
