What We Do
Just let me begin by saying that I wish that I had met Dan Lane while I was in the midst of my divorce. However, I never dreamt that after my divorce was finalized I would need a divorce attorney once again. It turned out that although I had an alimony agreement in place, it was possible for my ex-husband to reduce my alimony considerably. Luckily, I met Dan Lane at just the right time and he was able to address this unfair loop hole. My previous attorney had really missed details that should have been put in place to protect met. Dan was able to resolve my issue, in a timely fair manner. Thank you Lane & Lane. And remember, ``it's not over till the fat lady sings``, or you hire the right attorney and you never have to look back.
Can't say enough good things about Dan and his firm. The way he handled the issues and the day in court. Knowledgeable and caring. Thanks Dan!
He was very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and informative lawyer, during the whole process. Always keep me informed of the process and how things would work, any questions I had he was always there to listen and get me an answer for anything I had a concern with, I would totally recommend him and the firm to anyone.
