BEWARE......I use Mark Lane to help straighten out multiple decrees in one divorce. He didn't help me at all, the billing was ridiculous, Pam had no clue what was going on. Needless to say I thought the nightmare was over.
I receive a knock on my door being served from my from a servicer that my ex-husband was trying to file for custody and guess who his attorney was MARK LANE MY ATTORNEY!! That means Mark had had consulted with my ex-husband and didn't even realize he had already represented me against him. What kind of whack job law firm are you running. I had to call and talk with multiple people and explain the situation and all they did was stutter and oh my gosh I'm going to have to call you back and I did finally get a call back and of course Mark Lane was recusing himself off the case. Does he not have a case log of who he has represented? Of course he does. And also he looks up all the dockets and sees who the attorneys were. How in the world did he take a retainer from my ex-husband and have me filed knowing good gosh darn well he was my attorney and I told him attorney-client privileged information and he consulted with my ex-husband and got privileged information that is scary you cannot tell me that that information can just slip through the cracks. BEWARE.. needless to say I got the best attorney in the DFW area and it all turned out great. But stay away from this firm

Mark Lane and his team are amazing. I had little hope of protecting my children from abuse at the hands of my ex-in-laws, who had court ordered visitation from another state (Arkansas). Because, of the abuse both of my children have mental health issues. Mark and his team got the case transferred to a Texas court, once the case was moved to Texas (Tarrant county) my ex-in-laws have no access and my ex who admitted in court he knew his parents were abusing the children only gets visitation per the discretion of the mental health providers. Thank You! I would, will and do recommend Mark Lane to anyone seeking a lawyer.

He was my divorce lawyer, and he charged me for every phone call, every email, any follow-up paperwork I had to ask about, or any contact with his office in general. This was all in addition to the retainer. He spoke to me once, and then on I only spoke to his PAs. After the divorce was done and I no longer needed his services, he threaded to sue me when my final cost was $3,000 more than I was told it would be and I told him I could not pay it all up front. I had to charge it all on credit cards to avoid a law suit. Definitely would not recommend.

the staff was wonderful, Mark was amazing but a little intimidating but that helped when my ex showed up during mediation... He walked in and tried to make me say what he wanted until Mark caught him and ripped him a new one.

All I wanted was help for my divorce! I wish it was a dream cause I was more depressed. My money went right in his pocket. After I told him our house was on the market, thats all it took for him to squeeze the life out of me! He gave me a price to hire him and said I could not afford to hire him. He then proceeded to tell me, I'm on your side and you won't have to pay a penny. So I felt confident that he would help me. A year later and after getting only 5 phone calls from his staff, he set up a mediation date and said your divorce will be final at that time. I was overwhelmed. During mediation, he decides to pull out his blue prints of his new add on to his house and showed it to me, I'm thinking, "Nice"! At the end of it all, he pulls out an itemize bill of charges that I'm suppose to pay him of 26k, that was from my house that was sold. Mark didn't do anything for me but tell me that my ex is paying child support and will pay the balance on a major credit card, which NEVER HAPPENED and ruined my credit! Thanks Mark!

I was told my case was easy and that it would be resolved in 3 months for around $3000, it took over a year and triple that cost to get a resolution, which I finally had to demand happen in mediation or I would still be waiting for another rescheduled court date and be paying him for doing nothing. Never failed to take my money on time every month, but never returned phone calls or emails- but they sure charged for them (also, never dealt directly with him- it was always office staff and paralegals)....and when I requested my bill it took them 4 months and 8 phone calls to get it to me, conveniently exactly when my final payment was due.

Mr. Mark Lane represented me in my divorce. He was nice and helpful. His office girls took care of everything I needed. He was my second attorney, I got taken to the cleaners from the first one. Mr. Lane was fair with his bill and let me pay it out.

Mark has been my attorney and part of my family for over 10 years. From the moment I met him I knew he was a God Sent to me. He helped me out in the worst of times, my family is forever greatfull for Mark.

This attorney knows what he is doing and how to do it. Mr. Lane remembered details regarding my case that seemed important to me but I was not sure they held any legal significance. He used those details of fact and the truth to fight for me. Mr. Lane knows exactly what is important and what is not. He remained focused throughout my case even though the other side refused to follow through AND tried to continue the case on and on in court. Mr. Lane knew what to do. He did it. The case is over. For now.
Should I be served with papers again, the Law Office of Mark Lane will be my first call.

I retained Mark after having a very awful experience (very costly too) with another attorney. His office is very timely, very professional and caring. My court/mediation experience went very well and I highly recommend his services. He knows his business well but is also a good Christian man. Look no further if you need a good family lawyer.
