I will agree with the others disappointed. I did all the leg work, paid his PI only to be brutalized on the stand (not even told I was going to be on the stand). Told me to get affidavits from several witnesses only to tell me that they were worthless because they needed to testify minutes before my hearing. Claimed I was told that?!? Was late for the only 2 hearings & never once prepped me for what was to become. Claimed he notified me witnesses were to be there....my child is my life, I don't forget the most important thing to me in my life... & never dismiss my feelings of "not winning"! It's not about me ...be an advocate for my child! I wasted 1k on a PI b/c he had no clue about my case seconds before the hearing & blamed me b/c he "assumed" I didn't want to pay for my PI to be there because I chose to save money and have my ex served w/ myself. I do email because I am aware of how hard it is to keep up with all of your clients and it leaves a great paper trail. . However, this isn't another rental agreement for my child...you chose to be a family court attorney. Making decisions for the faith/outcome of a child of a single mom whom has put all her income/faith into you. I pray that future clients will be taken more seriously. I am not aggressive which could have failed me here, I just trust/assume that 2500. Retainer was a no brainier. I recently emailed a question about my case only to be questioned where my ex lived...its in the file! I work in a similar field and always pull the file before I respond.

I hired Ryan Lane for a contested child custody and child support case. Mr. Lane makes you do all the "leg work" yourself, such as locating the other party, finding out how much the other party makes, etc. Mr. Lane was paid in full upfront, and was supposed to get the child support started through the military. Mr. Lane had no idea how to get the allotment started. I had to do that part myself. I called repeatedly for a month straight to get my final court order. Mr. Lane never sent it; I had to go through the courts and pay additional money to recieve it. Mr. Lane could never remeber the details of the case, and showed up 3 hours late for the scheduled court date. Here we are 5 months later, and my child support case still is not resolved. Find yourself another lawyer, you will end up doing all the work yourself.

Mr. Lane is a great lawyer. He helped me through my divorce. He is very professional and courteous, I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer. If your looking for a lawyer to give your case that personal touch... he's your guy! I highly recommend Ryan Lane!

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!!!!

Mr. Lane generally seemed flustered and overworked at each meeting. He did not seem to be able to concentrate. One time he took a personal call just before entering the courtroom. By biting off more than he could chew, he cost me my case. He did not contact the court and ask for a rescheduled date. He blamed this snafu on his paralegal. Then he tried to deny responsibility by saying I never paid him for an appeal. I paid a flat rate in advance and he never asked me for more money. I found this approach unprofessional.

My son and his wife hired Ryan to handle a custody case in October 2012. For 2 years we fought thru 5 temporary hearings winning each one. We went to trial this last week and my grandson is now in the permanent custody of his dad and step mom. Ryan was always on top of the situation; reassuring, hard working, knowledgeable, compassionate.....he truly took a personal interest in my sons case!! I would highly commend Ryan Lane to anyone needing any help with family law!!!

We hired Ryan in October 2012 and we just finished our case... He was absolutely the best attorney for our custody case! He was knowledgable, trust worthy, and worked extremely hard for us! We will recommend him to everyone and will use him in the future if we ever have the need for another attorney! Thanks for all you did to keep our family together!!!

If you demand the best and refuse to settle for anything less, hire Ryan Lane. Ryan went above and beyond delivering a WIN in my settlement. Ryan is a personable, professional, accomodating, honest, and dependable man who stands by his word. He treats his clients as if they were his family and works hard to get the best-possible result.

I hired Ryan Lane for custody. He failed me miserably many times. He would miss appointments, show up at last minute for court appearances completely unprepared. Failed to talk to any of my witnesses prior to trial, therefore he was not prepared to question them properly. Signed incorrect court orders, advised me poorly. Advised me not to show up for a hearing and after showing up anyway I found out that the hearing wasn't cancelled and he was there. He caused my case to be closed amd I had to start all over. If you go to his office you will observe total chaos as he takes anyone that walks through his door, and will push you aside to obtain new clientele. I am stuck in a mess and because of his failures I have no recourse but to live with the courts decisions. He is cheap in price...but you get what you pay for!! Search for a better lawyer and whatever the charge it's worth it.

Interviewed with other attorneys. Found Mr. Lane to have best knowledge. Straight forward and told me what to expect from the start. Divorce proceeded smoothly. Have recommended his office to others.
