About me

My practice is located in Bloomington, Indiana and focuses on estate and wealth transfer planning, asset protection planning, elder law, Medicaid planning, long-term care planning, probate and trust administration, business succession planning, business formation and operation, and real estate. In my estate, wealth transfer planning, and elder law representation, I work closely with individuals and families to craft comprehensive and customized plans. These plans have helped hundreds of clients and their families address life issues, deal with death, resolve conflict, and leave a legacy.

  • Gary B. Garland

    I endorse this lawyer. I have known Lance for nearly 7 years - we met at a national continuing education/practice management conference. Lance exemplifies what you expect from an estate attorney - he is professional, thoughful, and thoroughly knowledgable. I was impressed when Lance told me he left a firm where he was a partner, so he could more readily service clients personally. Lance has been able to answer my estate planning and elder law questions with alacrity and ease - he is a credit to the profession, and I aspire to service my clients with the high standards he exudes so easily.
