Great Job!
Lance Stevens and his staff did a thoroughly excellent job with my case. He was very honest and upfront about what to expect about possible outcomes. He responded to all of our questions in a timely manner and was very thorough with his explanations. Lance is extremely experienced and knowledgeable about the law. I trust his advice completely. His legal team is also great! They were easy to contact and kept us updated throughout the entire process. I was never apprehensive about calling and not getting a clear answer.

Excellence. Honesty. Integrity.
I was referred to the Lance Stevens for a very sensitive case, and he proved to be just what my family needed. We appreciated how he explained processes clearly and set realistic expectations that he and his team, more than once, exceeded. As we wrapped up the case, he continued to generously guide us with knowledge and wisdom in what we considered unfamiliar territory. We have come to rely on his advice, knowing that it is good, solid information coming from a place of genuine regard for clients. My family also appreciates how his team worked tirelessly to meet goals and deadlines. They are an intelligent, friendly group of legal professionals who consistently demonstrated compassion and a high level of competence in ALL matters. We are indeed grateful for the good work of Lance Stevens and his team.

Mr. Stevens has always provided me with insightful and useful legal advice for a number of years; more importantly, he has always been available when I need that advice. I recommend he and his firm to anyone in need of representation.

Lance Stevens is First Class
I rely heavily on Lance for advice on very specific Legal matters. He invariably either has had experience in the area or can quickly familiarize himself with the subject matter and devise a strategy to attack it. He speaks plain English not lawyereze. If I am off base he is willing to say so. No Nonsense. I would and do reccomend him to my closest friends and family.

Lance Stevens review
Excellent attorney. I highly recommend him. He was very attentive and detailed oriented. He was very accessible and knowledgeable about contracts. He was able to immediately find flaws in contract and help me win my case.
Posted by Robert | August 8, 2014
Expectations exceeded
I chose Lance to represent me in a matter, by recommendation from two acquaintances. Having worked with 2 other attorneys in the past, I was expecting the usual... hard to get in touch with, sparse updates, feeling like a number. That definitely wasn't the case with Lance. He exceeded all expectations, as he kept me regularly updated, showed compassion, made me feel like his only client, and did a great legal job for me. My insurance company and their attorney were very reluctant to accommodate my needs, even though I wasn't at fault in the accident. After I hired Lance, he took over, and the insurance company stepped up and provided a rental car and immediately took care of my medical bills. I'll definitely recommend Lance to others.

When Lance speaks, people listen. He's a great guy and lawyer.
Lance got me out of a legal jam simply by speaking with the parties involved. He is someone that stands for the truth, and for what is fair. You can trust him to be thorough with your case, and for him to keep you informed throughout the process. He's a rare kind of lawyer in that sense.
Posted by Gloria | July 28, 2014
Excellent, I am especially impressed by his willingly to hang with it until it settled.
Lance is my lawyer, however; I consider him a friend. He is the perfect go to guy for me. Moreover I trust him totally. There is no reason not to be completely satisfied with his services. He has being handling my case for many years. Why can't I give him a ten on a scale of five?

Excellent Lawyer!
Lance is an extremely talented and tenacious lawyer with an exceptional grasp of the law. He will work hard to insure that his clients are well compensated for their losses, while giving each case and client the attention they deserve. I definitely recommend Lance and his firm if you need legal representation.

Outstanding!
Lance is awesome. He helped me with a car wreck case and also with a business matter. His advice was right on point and he handled the car wreck in such a manner that it got the most money possible from the insurance company. He is really aggressive and knows what it takes to win.
