If you are like me, the idea of talking to a lawyer is not what you want to do after a 9-10 hr work day. At the same time my wife and I knew that this was something we really needed to get done. So i consigned myself to the idea of sitting in front of a boring lawyer who is going to droll on in legal speak about whatever service he is overcharging me for. Let me stop. This is not Lance Ragland. Lance breaks all the stereotypes I ever had of lawyers. He doesn't wear a suit or a tie. He talk over you. He stayed late to accommodate our schedule multiple times. He even spoke about his family and friends to help us get acquainted. During our time with him, which was always after 5 pm because we both work full time, he voluntarily explained all documents in easy to understand language and encouraged us to ask questions if we were confused about any step of the process. His office staff is professional, friendly and helpful. He did "Sell" us an upgrade on our free Will service that my wife won at a raffle, but it wasn't high pressure and it made sense to us to upgrade. He never once pressured us to upgrade from the free service we could have just taken with no money out of pocket. Overall Lance changed my opinion of lawyers and their roll in the community. It was a great experience from beginning to end.

We were referred to Lance by our financial advisor to assist with setting up a trust and estate plan. His in depth knowledge in this area was greatly appreciated. When it comes to discussing such personal details about your life plan empathy is the most important attribute. Lance was able to relate to our situation and shared how he set up his own personal estate as a reference. When people are willing to share what they would do for their family it is very comforting to know you are getting sound advice. I have already recommended Lance to two friends and the only family I have in Florida.

Lance was recommended to me by my financial planner and was outstanding to work with. He spent an hour in consultation with us to discuss updating our trust, and then had the paperwork ready in less than 3 weeks. He called with questions and gave excellent advice where we had options. His office staff was equally efficient and friendly.

I endorse this lawyer. The respect and admiration I hold for this person as an attorney and an individual is in measurable. His practice of law is addressed with a keen attention to detail and relentless pursuit to achieve his clients goals and satisfactions. Honorable through and through.
