Client Comments

"Mr. Lane is an outstanding lawyer who places his client's interest ahead of his own. When I became frustrated and irritated by the delays that seem to accompany most legal battles, and which took place in my divorce proceedings, and I wanted to proceed with litigation, Mr. Lane would remain calm and present me with a compromise option that would achieve the desired result without going to court, and the expense it would have entailed. He knew I could afford a courtroom battle and it would have been very easy for him to allow me to go in that direction and generate a large payday for the lawyers on both sides. Instead he acted in my best interests and in the best legal tradition, and using his skills was able to guide me to an excellent and fair outcome at a fraction of the cost. He was very receptive to discussing his bill and to make adjustments when needed, as well as never bothering me about payments when my retainer was low. Mr. Lane is an outstanding divorce lawyer and a person of wit, kindness, and the utmost integrity. My only regret was that he did not win the Esquire Magazine award for the best dressed man (he certainly is an impeccable dresser)."

His demeanor in court reflects his dedication and knowledge of the law and his respect for your issue. He surrounds himself with a strong firm and has a competent staff of assistants. In this day and age of being flooded with legal assistance from media sources, it is a pleasure knowing that there is a genuine individual practicing law in Steve Lane."

"Steve Lane has an outstanding work ethic. He is exceptionally calm and composed, and he offers a tremendous level of confidence to his domestic clients in his knowledge and experience of family law. I can always rely on his office for timely responses and his entire team is extremely dedicated. In the courtroom, Steve Lane is always very prepared, making the experience as comfortable as possible for his clients."

"Having been in the court system for my entire adult life, including service as the United States Marshal for the Eastern District of Louisiana, Chief Deputy Clerk of the Louisiana Supreme Court, Clerk of Court for Juvenile Court, and a supervisor at the federal court, I have had the unique opportunity to critique lawyer performance. It is my opinion, and an opinion shared by many, that Steve Lane is the finest domestic lawyer in the City of New Orleans, if not the state of Louisiana. He has the reputation for honesty and integrity, in addition to the legal knowledge and skills necessary to resolve conflicts in this difficult arena. As the community relations liaison for the New Orleans Bar Association and a member of numerous legal committees and organizations, I had the choice of counsel and I chose Steve Lane. He is simply the best."

"I never thought i would get through a horrible divorce but Steve Lane was there every bit of the way, not missing a beat, dotting every i and crossing every t. He was so brilliant that I put him on my family foundation board. How's that for a client to remain friends with her divorce attorney? In addition, he always returned phone calls too. Let me add that the entire firm was no less than terrific on subsequent matters. Way to go HHKC!!!!!"
