Chad Allen Lanning

Chad Allen Lanning is extremely knowledgable about the laws and seems to enjoy explaining them to his clients in detail and easy to understand. He appeared to enjoy talking in length about the laws and never was in a rush or cut you short. Always was happy to help explain with any question you had. I used him for an appeal, which he won for me and I dread the fact I didn’t retain him for my initial case. I can’t say enough about him. Even if I didn’t win, he is one outstanding attorney. On top of things and gets it accurate and right. I feel he is really more interested in truly helping his clients rather than enjoying the money he makes from his profession. His ethics are outstanding and I highly recommend him if you want an attorney that is knowledgeable and will get you the best results he possibly can. I’ve retained a few attorneys in my time. I’ve found them all to be quite similar. Take your every dime, and do as little as possible. Not Chad. He’s worked for every dime I’ve paid him.

Attorney Lanning has been an absolute godsend to me. I was in the need of hiring an attorney to assist me with expunging some dismissed TRO’s I had on my record. After doing research on who would be the best attorney to contact, I came across Attorney Lanning. I was impressed by his strong academic background, numerous awards and high success rate in dealing with the appellate court at the highest level. When he sent over his motion for me to review I was completely blown away by how well it was written. The motion contained numerous references to statutes and it was very obvious that Atty. Lanning not only knew the law, but knew how to articulate it in a persuasive manner. Atty. Lanning was successful in assisting me with my situation and I will forever be indebted to him. He is a top notch Attorney that I highly recommend anyone that is in need of assistance to hire. [Client Review]
