Lane Lawfirm is Awesome
I first contacted Lane Law firm in 2017 ,as we were being faced with a lawsuit from our mortgage servicer. I spoke with their intake counselor , Steven Schwinger for several minutes. In that short time , I received more assurance and quality advice than I had received in a span of five years from previous counsel and bank personnel familiar with our case. Lane Law firm was retained by me in December of that year. Robert "Chip " Lane , did a fantastic job of ceasing the foreclosure process and assisting us in mitigating the issues with our servicers. Josh , Brenda Ramirez ,and Steven were always accessible when we had questions or concerns . What we truly appreciated was their candor and willingness to make our case move quickly and receive an amiable outcome. I personally cannot express enough appreciation for Robert and his team for the diligence and hard work in resolving our difficult and lengthy struggle. This law firm is highly recommended by us ,as they are clear , organized and talented at what they do best. We feel that we were very well represented and all of this was achieved affordably. They are an awesome group !

Home Loan Deficiencies
Robert and all the staff were very professional and handle my case just like they said they would. They looked over the materials of the case, found deficiencies and asked me if they should continue with the case. Documents were exchanged easily by mail and all worked out well.

First Class Lawyer
I just had a dispute with my insurance company resolved and I could not be happier with the results. I was going back and forth with my insurance company about a roof claim. I felt I was not getting denied unfairly, so I was referred to Robert Lane. The process was explained thoroughly so I knew what I was getting myself into. After i filled out my paper work, the process went smoothly and I received updates when they were available. If you are having issues with getting a claim approved with your insurance company, I highly recommend Robert Lane.
