About me

The Entrekin Law Firm founder Lance Entrekin earned an M.B.A. and then graduated with honors from one of the top law schools in the country.  He was lucky enough to spend five years practicing with a legendary attorney who went on to become a judge and who taught Mr. Entrekin well.  


In 1998, Mr. Entrekin founded The Entrekin Law Firm and is one of the leading attorneys in the country in the areas of burn injuries and legal malpractice.  Mr. Entrekin is an aggressive litigator who gets outstanding results and has successfully tried cases in state court, federal court and at arbitration for his clients.

  • Tom A. Kapstrom

    I met Lance about ten years ago through a mutual friend and was impressed with his knowledge of the law and his willingness to share his knowledge with other lawyers. Almost one year later I referred my friend to him as I don't practice in Arizona. Lance took care of my friend like he was family and he helped my friend get an amazing result to his personal injury claim. My friend had nothing but great things to say about Lance and I have been referring cases to him ever since. He will treat you like family and he will give your case the personal attention it deserves!
