Lane is absolutely FANTASTIC
Lane is absolutely FANTASTIC! Hired her last year for DUI I got. She helped out a relative of mine so I got the recommendation from him. I’ve never been in trouble with the law outside of many tickets and standard moving violations. But I was still pretty scared. She was able to get me the minimum fines and required classes. Saved me a ton of time and money!

I was shocked, yet not surprised, by how much stricter LA County is DUIs compared to OC (where I live). But being a first time offender, and first time getting in trouble with the law, Lane was able to get me some leniency when the final verdict came down.

Exceptional Attorney
i hired Lane Scherer to represent me in September 2013. I had been arrested for a DUI and was facing the consequences of being a multiple offender. It didn't take long to realize I had hired the right person. Lane was easily accessible....she either answered her own phone or called back promptly if she wasn't immediately available. She knows the law like the back of her hand and did a great job of managing my expectations. Lane is extremely personable and nonjudgmental, which is very important when you are dealing with the shame and fear that accompany a DUI charge. Another really great thing about Lane is that she stays with you until the very end. Most attorneys only go as far as the judge's sentencing. But Lane remains available until all court requirements have been met. In my case I feel that Lane negotiated a deal that allowed me to keep living my life without any major interruptions, while at the same time satisfying the court. I can't express enough how fortunate i am to have had her on my side. I'd highly recommend her.

Extraordinary lawyer
Lane is a fantastic lawyer on a number of levels. She knows the law inside and out, and she also knows and is respected by the judges and prosecutors she appears in front of on your case, which is equally important. She is a warm, empathic person which is so important when confronted with being arrested for dui and all the consequences that can follow. She is a good person and a great lawyer.

excellent lawyer
Mr. Lane was the best choice I've ever made when I picked her out of many lawyers for my DUI case. After I spend a few days in jail, I was inundated with junk mail from lawyers I've never heard of. I found Mr. Lane from one my friends. She came highly recommended. Not only was she was very up to date on the law, but she had a commanding presence in court. But what really mattered to me was the outcome. She got my case dismissed after filing a motion to suppress. She was soooooo good and eloquent, I couldn't have chosen a better attorney. Thank you, Ms. Lane.

Miss Lane Schere was the best choice I could have possibly made for my DUI.
Miss Scherer is an outstanding lawyer. I have always received excellent treatment from her and her law firm since the very first day. I highly recommend Miss Scherer without a shadow of doubt to anyone finding him/herself with a DUI and unsure where to turn.

Highly recommended lawyer
We retained Ms. Scherer to represent a family member. She is an extremely competent attorney and aggressive advocate on behalf of her client. She provided representation throughout the proceeding and continued to follow-up after resolution of the matter. We would without reservation recommend Ms. Scherer as a highly qualified attorney and person of great integrity. We hold respect and gratitude for her thoughtful handling of this matter.

An excellent attorney
Ms. Scherer is a consummate professional who skillfully handled my case and was very responsive to my many inquiries regarding its various aspects. Her knowledge of the law, genuine caring and expert navigation of legal nuance made a very difficult legal process relatively easy. I recommend Ms. Scherer without hesitation.

Great DUI attorney
One of the best. She is smart, hardworking, and she knows the law, the judges and the prosecutors. She is extremely well prepared and kept me informed the whole time. If you want the best, and someone who actually cares about your case, hire Lane.

Amazing attorney and individual
Upon receiving a DUI in California, I was recommended to the Law Offices of Lawrence Taylor. Within 24 hours of my call, I was immediately contacted by Lane Scherer, and her incredible team. Lane is an exceptional attorney, incredibly knowledgeable, and moreover, an amazing individual. She treated me with compassion, care, kindness, and gave my case the full attention it deserved. Lane was always available to answer my questions almost immediately - and her incredible team was there to support me during the entire proceedings. I also cannot speak highly enough about her paralegal, Araseli. I tell the two of them repeatedly that they allowed me to live my life to the fullest during this hectic experience. The outcome on my case was fantastic - and I owe it all to her. One of the charges was even dropped completely! I am eternally grateful to Lane, and I recommend her in the highest regard.

Thank you!
I am writing to express my appreciation for what Lane has done for me, my legal case, and my family. In 2005, I crashed my car while drunk and my life completely changed. I had just met the man of my dreams and had a great career and I was in jeopardy of losing it all. I found your law firm and met Lane and she was able to negotiate a settlement that best suited me. Six months later, I was married to that man and working on my recovery. That 2nd DUI changed me significantly, but unfortunately I was still in denial of my alcohol problem. In 2010, it happened again. I wasn't drinking to celebrate or "party" with friends. I was deep into the disease of alcoholism and got my 3rd DUI. She negotiated a 30/30 program for me which allowed me to keep my job and work on my sobriety. I eventually lost my job, but it wasn't due to my disease and she has been a constant support ever since. To me, Lane was more than a lawyer. She was a friend. To her, my case wasn't just black and white and she understood all of the factors of what I was struggling with....not just the legal factors. I now have over 1 year of sobriety, have survived 3 DUI's, and I have Lane Scherer to thank for it.
