Very Knowledgeable and Helpful
I have used Lane V. Erickson in the past, along with other attorneys and have found Lane to be the most knowledgeable on the matters that concerned me and my family. If Lane doesn't have the answers, he will consult others in his firm to find the answers. I would highly recommend Lane for any legal work.
