Real Estate

Real Estate matters can be complex to comprehend if you don’t have a clear understanding of the legal paperwork involved in it. Not everyone is dealing with buying and selling of real estate property everyday. In most circumstances, people hire a real estate agent who takes care of the contracts and documents in purchase or selling of property. However, with changing dynamics of real estate business and complex legal documentation, it can be risky to trust only the agent. In such a scenario, it is highly advisable to consult a real estate lawyer who can work for you and see that your interests are rightly protected. 

How we can assist you in your Real Estate needs:

  • Review & draft Contract of Sale and Lease
  • Discuss and review mortgages, foreclosures and title examinations
  • Analyze all possible options for your real estate problems/issues
  • Undertake litigation services to protect your real estate needs
  • Help in Zoning and Planning issues

Are you a first time buyer or seller, and need the trust of a real estate lawyer who can guard your interests?

Personal Injury Law

If you or someone in your family has been seriously injured in an accident caused by someone’s negligence, you can seek help from our experienced personal injury lawyers at our Columbia based law office. 

Our practice emphasizes prompt and intensive investigation of the circumstances of your accident. That way you have the best possible chance of proving liability not only against the most obvious defendant but also against any other party whose negligence might have played a role either in causing the accident or in aggravating the extent of your injuries.

Criminal Defense Law

Being charged for any criminal offence is a terrifying experience and can lead to job loss, a record or even a jail term. Whether somebody has been charged with DUI, drug offenses, immigration or other crimes. You need to know your rights and must act to protect them. But just knowing one’s rights won’t do any good to them. It’s essential to have the support of an experienced and effective criminal defense lawyer who can defend your rights at the right time whether you are guilty, completely innocent or somewhere in between. 

How we can help you in criminal cases?

Wills & Probate

Estate planning gives you the opportunity to control events upon your illness, incapacity or death, for your family’s continued well being. Without proper planning, your assets may not be distributed in the manner you would have intended. You are entitled to prepare a will or trust that will distribute your assets in the manner you consider most appropriate.  Trusts can be a component of your will or a separate legal entity. It is beneficial to use trusts to avoid the probate process or to minimize estate and income taxes.

Estate Planning also includes power of attorney and healthcare directives. Estate Planning can be complex at times when people are not sure of the distribution process and the legal implications that follow thereafter. Your estate planning requirements are unique and need special attention to devise.

The Lane Law Firm can advise you to make the right choices to plan your assets such that you can preserve them and also benefit from minimum tax. I specialize in creating wills and trusts that benefits you in every possible way.

Areas we specialize in:

  • Simple Wills
  • Revocable and irrevocable Trusts
  • Estate Planning
  • Will Disputes
  • Living Wills

For over 11 years, our professional staff has been offering sound legal advice in all the areas of law mentioned above.
