“John, I want you to know how much I appreciate your help with the handling of my Estate Planning after the death of my husband.  You never talked down to me, treated me as an equal, and answered all of my questions with courtesy and respect. 

This was a difficult time for me, when Estate Planning was the last thing on my mind.  But you helped me through it, guiding me through issues I would not have otherwise taken care of.  I will always be grateful you were with me that day in court.  You were very comforting and respectful of the fact that even though you had been through this process many times, I had not.  

Thank you for making this unbearable situation a little more bearable for me!”
- Donna S.

“John, I want to thank you so much for the excellent work you did on my behalf in helping me handle the legal affairs of my wife's death and in the establishment of my new family trust. As her death was unexpected, I was not at all prepared to navigate such a path without a lot of help. From our first meeting until the last document was signed, you kept me well informed, answered all my questions, and made me feel extremely comfortable. I greatly appreciate your being there through the roughest period of my life. I am completely secure passing your name to my daughter so she can feel equally comfortable and informed whenever it is time for her to deal with my affairs! Thank you so very much.”
- Wayne C.

“John Lane can be highly recommended to anyone. Mr. Lane helped my husband and I update our Wills to meet our life changes. He explains everything in a way that was easy to understand. He was very accommodating to us by coming to our home for signatures, as my husband is not very mobile. Everything was done in a timely manner, as promised. Mr. Lane is many years younger than my husband and I. I feel that the time of our deaths, he will be a great asset in helping our children.”

“Too often in our daily interaction in life, we rarely take time to compliment someone when they do good work. We are quick to complain when something does go wrong though! This is a compliment to you and your good work!

You came recommended by someone I trust. I called you, discussed my needs and you came to me for an interview. You came on a Saturday and discussed options with my oldest daughter and me. You took time to review the things I had in place. You came back within 10 days with a straightforward approach to solve my estate issues. I agreed with it and you completed the paperwork to facilitate the changes. It was clear, concise, and affordable.

In my corporate career, I have dealt with dozens of attorneys anywhere from depositions to lawsuits. Mostly, I have come away from these interactions wanting to ‘take a shower!’ You on the other hand are different!! You listen! You think through situations and create exact solutions. I am so pleased with our meeting and will ALWAYS use you whenever the need arises!!

Best regards and THANK YOU!”
- Bruce L.

“Our accountant recommended we talk to Mr. John M. Lane as we had what we thought was a difficult situation with my parents estate. I'm so glad we connected, first by email, per my request, then in person. John listened to our situation with my parents estate and my parents. He was so patient, kind and gentle with my mom.

“We met John Lane at an event hosted by our Financial Advisor. During the event he discussed the need we all have for what should be done with our property when we either pass on or are unable to make decisions for ourselves.

We had been talking about updating our wills, so we decided to give John a call. We were able to make an appointment right away. John was very professional, personable, and knowledgeable. He answered all our questions efficiently and in everyday language. We explained we were leaving on vacation the next week and even though we explained there was no rush, John was able to prepare all of our documents and we were able to sign them before we left.

He charged a flat fee for the work, which was quite reasonable compared to other quotes we had. Working with John was a very positive experience and we highly recommend him.”
- Claire and Tom M.

“My partner and I had the pleasure of working with John to prepare estate planning documents for us. Working as a subscriber to the Texas Legal Protection Plan, we learned of John’s specialization in this area and his expertise was certainly shown in the agile manner in which he reviewed our needs, prepared and presented well-informed and useful considerations for us in preparing our estate planning documents and he worked very quickly in putting all of that input into cogent and specific documents that will guide us, our children and others in future decision-making.

“When my husband and I contacted John Lane about helping us with our estate planning and drafting our wills, it was because my father passed without leaving his original will. We had a copy of his will but could not locate the original. In addition, his will was very basic, and did not outline his wishes in any detail regarding what he wished to do with his house, his cars, or other personal property. He didn't make provisions for his funeral expenses. He didn't leave his executors with any way to pay his bills because his life insurance beneficiaries were his grandchildren. Because of dad's limited planning, it has caused my husband and I, and my sister, a tremendous amount of emotional and financial stress as we have struggled to manage his estate. This made us realized we didn't want to put our own children and family through the same pain. We contacted John Lane as recommended by a friend. John helped us to clarify exactly what we want to do with our estate. He listened to our needs and guided us through the process of planning and clearly explaining the various options. He was professional, informative, and compassionate. I highly recommend John Lane if you need help with estate planning.”
- Janet D.

“Our financial planner referred us to John Lane for our estate planning needs and we are so grateful for his recommendation. John is a consummate professional. He is organized, knowledgeable, and sincere. Within the first few minutes we spent with John, it was evident that he was competent, confident, and very down to earth. We highly recommend John Lane and will continue to spread the word about our experience with him. If anyone needs help and guidance in his area of expertise - John is the BEST!”
- Jim and Deborah G.

“We have used the estate planning services of John M. Lane and have been very satisfied. John answered all questions and concerns we had with clarity, promptness, and understanding! He was also very personable. We definitely recommend his services to our neighbors, family, and friends.”
- Eddie and Lori M.

“John has been a godsend during a sad time after my father passed away. I live on the gulf coast and needed an attorney for probate in Williamson County. John was recommended to me. I knew that I was in good hands from our first phone conversation. He patiently explained what needed to be done and has handled every detail promptly and professionally. Most importantly, he is a wonderful communicator. He kept me informed and was always available to help with questions. I am so thankful that he was recommended to me.”

“My wife and I were very impressed with an estate planning seminar that we attended given by John Lane. He reviewed our wills and other documents and explained what needed to be updated. He also advised us to take advantage of recently passed legislation regarding Transfer on Death Deed and told us to add beneficiaries to all existing life insurance policies, etc. I would highly recommend John to anyone.”
- Tim & Jolene T.

“John Lane took a consultative approach to our estate planning. He was extremely thorough in his explanation of the process and his professional recommendations regarding our circumstances.

- Hector H.

“John worked on our Will and Testament and explained our options and made the process easy to understand. John communicated very thoroughly and made the documents complete and professional. We made a good decision working with John and will use him again. Highly recommended.”
- Vic and Laura H.

“I met John Lane a couple of years ago at an event the Leander Chamber of Commerce was hosting. When I had a change in my family circumstances that required me to completely revise my estate plan, John was the first person to come to mind to help me out with this. John did an excellent job and got what I needed put into place very quickly.

As an owner of an insurance agency, I work with families to make sure they have the life insurance coverage necessary to protect their family when they pass. When I am meeting with my clients for this purpose, I also ask them if they have put together an estate plan so their loved ones do not have to guess as to what their wishes are! When you put together an estate plan, it makes a difficult time easier on the family.

I recommend John Lane to all my clients that have a need for this service.”
- Audra P.

“We were very glad to work with you. We appreciate that you came out to see us here at Edward Jones. And then you came and dropped off a paper to our house. Thank you. As you know, I have the memory issue and have been very worried about needing to make plans and document it for me. I really appreciate you answering so many of our questions. You were very thorough and affordable. Thank you.”
- Carol B.

“We met John Lane through our financial adviser. Our consultation with John made it obvious we needed to revise our estate plan. He helped with everything from medical powers of attorney, to establishing an L.L.C, and a revocable trust. His comprehensive and detailed approach to our situation was done in a very friendly and professional manner. From researching deed information to filing documents in multiple counties, John handled it all. He has made himself available to answer our questions whenever they arise. We are thankful to have John Lane as our estate attorney.”
- Gene E.

- Mary D.

“My husband and I are very pleased with the education and service we received from John Lane. We accidentally found him when we were having our will drawn up. We were interested in putting our assets in an estate for our grand kids in a way they wouldn’t have to give most of it to the government, or have a hassle trying to get what was rightfully theirs, but we didn’t know who to go to, what it would entail, or where to get started. The lawyer we had doing our will told us what we needed was a trust, but that wasn't in his field and he recommended John Lane.

John met with us in our home town, and on the phone, helping me to get it clear exactly what a trust consisted of, seems like my husband understood but couldn’t explain it to me. John was very patient with me and I truly appreciated it.

He was up front about the price, which was very reasonable, don’t know how he makes a living doing this, but it is affordable and well worth doing the paperwork. I know I won’t be around when this paperwork gets finalized, but I have no doubt that our family will appreciate what John Lane has done for us.”

Thank you John.
- John and Jacklyn G.

- Jennifer M.

“I have been putting off the issue of estate planning for the last few years. Once I met with John Lane and discovered how easy it was, I regretted that I hadn’t done it sooner. Recent life changes – death of a spouse, moving to a retirement home, and a decline in health all led me to realize that it was time to put a plan in place. Now that I have an estate plan I can sit back and have assurance that my assets are protected for both mine and my family’s future needs. My children were so impressed that they are now working with John in planning their own estates!”
- William L.

“My wife and I were fortunate to attend a recent presentation by Mr. Lane on estate planning. We were unsure about the best approach for us to take.  Afterwards, we felt confident which plan we were best suited. During the entire process of planning our estate Mr. Lane was readily available to us, sympathetic to our desires and explained all our options in a fashion we could understand. We were provided with step by step instructions in handling our assets and Mr. Lane responded quickly and most kindly to our many questions.”
- Harold S.

“John took the complicated process of creating my trust and broke it down into easy to follow steps. He was happy to meet with me numerous times until he felt I was comfortable with and completely understood the trust documents. He spoke in common language. I’m so happy I was fortunate enough to find such a wonderful and caring attorney.”
