I am still in awe at how Lance worked to settle my personal injury case for a larger amount than expected. I forgot, in my last post, to mention how wonderful and welcoming the members of his staff are...Laura & Sandra, your devotion to helping Lance through your efficiency and compassion go beyond the norm. Thank you all!

Lance is the best attorney I've worked with. He is an excellent negotiator, personable, and experienced. Lance didn't mince words when the going got rough. He dealt with me directly in an honest and fair manner. When Lance had to advise me on some difficult stuff that I didn't want to hear or deal with, I felt that he represented my interests well. I knew where I stood constantly because he kept me in the loop either by phone, letters, or emails. I'm glad I had him on my side during a difficult period in my life.

Lance is, in my opinion the best lawyer in the Salem area, for the type of legal work that he does. I hired Lance to see my daughter more, after my divorce and he has been GREAT!
He's worked in the area a long time and has built up a reputation that works well with other professionals that may need to be hired to assist in your case- (as was needed in mine.) With prior lawyers, things seemed to just drag along and nothing really changed. With Lance, I saw immediate improvements in spending time with my daughter and I know that from here, things will only improve with Lance's skillful legal knowledge and expertise.
Though Lance is not a "cheap" lawyer; as with a lot of things- well you get what you pay for. In my experience you can hire a lawyer for less money, but end up with nothing to show for it- or very little results; thereby wasting thousands of dollars.
With Lance, his knowledge and attention to detail is sharply focused and I believe that is one of the keys to the successful outcome in my case. His billing hours are also fair- a sometimes rarity in today's world!
I strongly recommend Lance for any type of legal work.

Lance and I have opposed each other in cases for years. I have always found him to be professional, knowledgeable, straightforward and honest regarding issues in the case. He gains a lot of credibility by acknowledging weaknesses in his own case, which puts him in the enviable position of being able to maximize the strengths of his case. This serves him very well both in negotiating settlements and with the judge if it becomes necessary to try the case.
