Best Attorney
Lance Entrekin is the best attorney who knows the law and will aggressively represent his clients if the case ends up in the Court room. Lance has an amazing knowledge and presents well in front of the judge and jury. I would recommend Lance to anyone who has a substantial claim and they are looking for an honest, intelligent attorney who is one of the few who will take the case to trial in the Courtroom for their client.

Attorney review of Mr. Entrekin
I am a local attorney in Tempe, AZ and have both been adverse to Lance Entrekin and also have been on the same side of legal disputes with him. I have found him on each occasion to be approachable, reasonable, extremely competent, and someone that when he tells you he'll do something, he does it. I have recommended him to numerous clients and each one has had a great experience with Lance Entrekin. I have the utmost respect and admiration for Lance Entrekin and will continue to both refer his services to others and retain him myself when the need arises.

IF YOU WANT IT DONE RIGHT, ASK THIS LAWYER
I had a problem with my Retirement from work. I suspected my then boss was lieing to me about my retirement. BLE was able to get my boss's attention very quickly. He was, in fact, lieing to me and mismanaging my Retirement Acount. He stopped doing this soon after. After 22 years as an employee there, I happily retired. And took my money with me-Thanks to this fine Attorney.

review B. Lance Entreken
Barry L. Entreken has by far been the best attorney I have ever retained and I have had more than my fair share. He saved me tens of thousands of dollars in a commercial lease dispute. Is in the process of handling another case for me that a prior attorney completely dropped the ball on. His confidence and broad knowledge of the law has been unsurpassed in my experience with him.The only regret that I have is that I didn't find him sooner in life.
