Brilliant Advocate, Compassionate Advisor Lane possesses the most crucial strengths needed to win any legal case, simple or complex. His ability to research and evaluate the most nuanced of details leads to sound analysis and a thoughtful, focused approach to the case. Combined with his excellent judgment, superb writing, and considerable presentation skills, he is certainly a formidable foe to anyone opposing him. At the personal level, Lane’s patience, compassion, and kindness toward his clients ensures them a sense of strong support during a very challenging time. I cannot say enough about Lane’s talents and brilliant approach to all matters legal. It was a delight to work -- and WIN -- with him and he will be the first and only attorney I call for legal matters in the future.

44 Questions Answered
Q. My brother is in jail he’s have charge for aggravated sexual abuse of child in Orem Utah he’s no got sentenced yeah
A: You brother is facing a very serious charge. The charges potentially carry a sentence of 15 years to life. The statute does allow a reduced term in certain circumstances. You absolutely should be looking for legal representation to assist in this type of case.
Q. After 43y married husband (66yr) and I (63)yr are divorcing. How many years of support can I expect realistically?
A: The answer to your question really depends on the specific facts of your case. By law, the Court can award support up to the length of the marriage. In your case, that is very unlikely. Where he is around retirement age, Alimony can become difficult if someone does retire. However, if he does open his own business after retiring, you could be eligible for alimony based upon that work. At some point with a real retirement, it can shift to a property division, including dividing any pensions and other assets. With the complicated nature of alimony, I strongly suggest that you hire an experienced attorney to assist you.
Q. I am on a Child Abuse Registry for a chronic offense but never criminally charged what to do to remove name?
A: My reading of the statute is that being on the child abuse registry alone does not prevent you from adopting a child. I don't know the process, if any, for removing oneself from the child abuse registry, but I have successfully completed an adoption for an individual who was on the registry. If you look at the Utah Adoption act, it has a list of disqualifying criteria. Unless it has changed recently, it requires a conviction.
