I found Lance on Avvo several years ago while searching for a lawyer to handle my very nasty child custody dispute. Lance has been by my side ever since and I would never even consider going anywhere else. Lance has always been extremely thorough and fair. He's a really friendly and relatable guy too which doesn't hurt. I would recommend Lance to anyone needing legal services.

I hired Mr. Owen based of his reputation in the community and online ratings. He has a solid understanding of the law, made many recommendations based on my situation, and helped me get the best judgement possible. He was easy to work with, respectful, flexible with my schedule, and his support staff were helpful as well. He was easy to communicate with and answered all my questions in a timely manner. I hope I never need his services again, but I would not hesitate to use him in the future.

Lance Owen represented me in a custody case. He always responded to any questions I had through email or over the phone in a timely matter. He is very knowledgeable about the law pertaining to this case and other cases similar to mine. He always explains everything in great detail and he did an amazing job of preparing me for my appearance in court. Lance, his assistant Jessica and everyone in the office have been professional and competent from the first day I contacted them.
I recommend them highly. My involvement with this firm was nothing but positive.

Lance represented me in a legitimation/custody case and I was impressed the instant I met and interviewed with him. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in his field and assured me with confidence that I had nothing to worry about - and I didn't. Although there is no win or lose in these type cases because the child is caught in the middle - I was satisfied with the outcome. He was upfront about possible outcomes, discussed my options, and represented me well. Lance teamed up with Jessica to work my case and they were always very responsive, professional, confident (which is important in the courtroom), and knowledgeable. I highly recommend.

I live out of state, and needed an attorney to represent me in a child support case. My local attorney used Avvo to find Mr. Owen. The case was summarily dismissed. Mr. Owen's knowledge and research was top notch. I will use him and his firm again.

Lance was always helpful and humane in his approach to my case, which he took over at short notice after I left my previous lawyer with whom I was unable to work successfully. He was generally available to discuss my case - and always available in emergencies, which I imagine arise in all divorce situations. He certainly kept me informed about developments, and made every effort to keep the case moving forward in the face of a very difficult opposing attorney. When my former spouse and I managed to reach agreement on a settlement together, Lance worked to facilitate it rather than place obstacles in the way, which I believe other lawyers might have done. Lance helped me navigate through some tricky financial questions and demonstrated a wide knowledge of the legal issues and precedents which would help me progress my case. I can certainly recommend him to others experiencing the legal complexities of divorce proceedings.

I have known Lance for more than fifteen years, and we have tried numerous cases against each other. Lance zealously advocates for his clients. He is a very skilled trial lawyer, who is always well prepared. He has the experience and knowledge to handle complex civil matters.

I have known Lance for my entire legal career. I have found him to be a strong advocate for his client, always taking a caring and practical approach. I have worked on cases against him and with him and feel he was reasonable and fair. He is aggressive, respectful and has a strong presence in the Courtroom. I would recommend him to anyone needing assistance with divorce or custody matters.
