Personal Injury


Personal injury law can be quite complex at a time when you are dealing with complicated medical treatments and costs after an accident.

We pride ourselves in being sympathetic yet practical and pragmatic.  We always offer a complimentary initial phone conversation to determine if the standards of proof have been met and we think that you do have a case.

The first thing to establish is if someone was negligent and if their actions contributed to your accident.  We gather all the facts, investigate the event and present our findings to determine who is at fault.  Once this is established we then determine the cost of the accident is terms of medical expenses, lost time at work, and determine if a longer term impairment exists that might affect your future earnings.

Timing is always a factor when filing a personal injury claim, so it is important to seek legal counsel as soon after the event as possible.

Estate Planning


Estate Planning is a very specialized area of the law that includes all aspects of planning for future generations.  At Lanza Law, we draw on the combined decades of legal experience to craft estate plans that fit our client’s needs now and in the future.  We also serve as informed and powerful litigators when there are estates and trusts that are in dispute.  Whether it’s challenging a will or fighting the mismanagement of a trust, we use our proven legal strategies to provide effective solutions for any estate related matter.

Our skillfully constructed estate plans should be viewed as an investment in the future of your loved ones. By employing a seasoned professional, rather than trying to ‘do it yourself’, you are selecting the best possible plan of action.  You are also protecting your heirs from potential mistakes and oversights that can lead to massive tax liabilities and damaged family relations.We utilize a wide variety of planning tools to accomplish your goals of planning for the future, including:


A will, sometimes called a ‘last will and testament’, is a legal document that makes it clear what your final wishes are allowing the court to ensure your last wishes are carried out.

However, you can also use a will to

  1. Name an executor.
  2. Name guardians for children and their property.
  3. Decide how debts and taxes will be paid.
  4. Provide for pets.

You shouldn’t try to use a will to put conditions on your gifts, leave instructions for final arrangements, or leave property for your pet.


A Trust is a fiduciary arrangement that allows for a Trustee to hold assets on behalf of a beneficiary.   There are many different kinds of trusts, from a simple marital trust designed to pass wealth on to a spouse without undue taxes, to a more complex trust dealing with children from different marriages.  At Lanza Law, we specialize in the area of Trusts, putting us in a unique position of being able to determine exactly what type of trust is best for our clients.

Administration Guardianships

Obtaining legal guardianship can be critical to securing the financial and personal stability of minors or adults who are not capable of handling their own affairs.  Guardianship administration law is designed to protect the welfare and rights of these individuals.Lanza Law can help you decide if a family member is in need of guardianship or draw up guardianship papers for a minor.

By helping to secure various assets, legal guardians help ensure that an individual is cared for until, should the circumstances permit, they can care for themselves.  Deciding to become a legal guardian is a serious step, and our attorneys are ready to help you understand the various complexities and duties that you will assume as a guardian

Beneficiary Disputes

All too often, family members and beneficiaries to an estate do not agree with the final outcome.   As a result, disputes arise concerning the construction of a will or a trust and/or the administration of them.  Handling such disputes requires both the knowledge of the laws governing trusts and estates and understanding of the rules of evidence and procedure.   We work with individuals to determine if they have a valid claim or dispute, usher them into mediation if applicable and as a last resort, take the issue to trial.
