“I retained Jim when my previous attorney was suspended for a year. Jim basically took the case notes and had to pick up where we left off. He was able to represent me at a high level in a short timeline. I was so impressed that Jim is currently representing me in a divorce case that is working towards a dissolution. Jim has extensive knowledge in business ownership and negotiation of distribution of assets.”
“James Lane is a knowledgeable and dedicated family law attorney. He took the time to listen and provided a comprehensive and well thought-out strategy in a complex case involving children and a sociopathic spouse. His plan worked very well and I was able to get significant custody of my children. Jim Lane would be an excellent choice in your divorce.”
“Jim Lane was positively outstanding in a very complicated and difficult custody case. I would highly recommend him to anyone.”
“I hired James Lane about 2 years ago to represent me in an ongoing 6 year old Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court case. The skill and quality of his representation commands the highest respect and admiration, he is in his own class. He makes all other attorneys involved on either side of my case look like lay persons playing in a professional sport with James Lane being the only professional in the game. He does the research necessary to know the case, is always prepared, is superior in performance during depositions, direct and cross examinations of witnesses, trial tactics, motions and briefs. I am now and have been a business owner (nationalorganizations) for 5O years. l, through my businesses, have been through more than wanted to county and/or state, and one Federal civil litigation, and have employed great representation for those cases. However, I have not ever witnessed or experienced, from either side of said cases, an attorney with the competency of Mr. Lane.”

“For full disclosure, it has taken me weeks to write this review because it is hard to express the full gratitude I have for Jim and his work on my case. When it was time for me to start seeking counsel for my child custody case, a friend of mine told me that the most important thing I could do was chose the right lawyer. I spent about two weeks researching, and meeting different lawyers throughout Cleveland, and while they all said the right things, something was missing. It was just by chance that I came across Jim. When we talked over the phone and I explained my situation, he just seemed to get it, and I felt like I could trust him. Since that day, Jim has been by my side throughout this very difficult endeavor. His advice, and counsel has been amazing. His predictions of how this case was going to go, and what the other party was going to try and do were dead on, and he had a plan in place for every situation. Every recommendation he has made has been the right one, which just speaks to his expertise in this field. As an unwed father in Ohio, the cards were stacked against me, but with Jim’s help, and unbelievable court room experience, I have an opportunity that most fathers in my situation would not. Choosing Jim has made all the difference in this case, and I am so grateful that people like him are out there. I am not sure that anything I write will fully do justice for what he has done for me, and continues to do. All I can say is that it is hard for me to imagine that there are any lawyers more skilled, intelligent, hard working, and empathetic than Jim. He is an excellent lawyer, and amazing individual who genuinely cares about his clients. I would recommend him to anyone.”
