"I would like to thank Mark Brown for standing up to my insurance company and fighting for me and my family. My case involved a traumatic brain injury and an underinsured motorist claim followed by a bad faith claim. The insurance company constantly delayed payment of benefits and acted without concern, integrity or even basic competence despite clear evidence showing fault by the other party and the severity of my injuries. His research, preparation and litigation skills as an attorney were truly impressive and resulted in winning our case against the insurance company. The reason that I asked Mark to represent us stayed true throughout the process. He acted with honesty, compassion and integrity. Whenever we had a question or concern Mark would answer promptly, professionally and with understanding. At the end of the day I was able to focus on my medical issues while Mark and the wonderful staff at Lane and Lane handled the insurance company. Thank-you again for never backing down from the insurance company and doing it with integrity and honesty!"

Steve and Scott... As I sit behind the desk working on closing out 2012, I was thinking about you and just thought I'd take a moment to tell you how much I've valued working together over these years. I took a look back and I did the first case for Scott in 3/2000, followed by Steve in 7/2000. Gee, 12 years! I consider you two not just clients, but "friends". I appreciate how hard you work for justice for the 'little guy' and that you truly do care about the people you represent, which speaks volumes about you as individuals, as well as the community work you do. Anyway, I hope you are enjoying wonderful holidays and just wanted to let you know that you are deeply appreciated and to wish you and your families individually, and as a firm, a new year that is peaceful, healthy, joyous and blessed!

Attorney Scott Lane, partner with Lane & Lane, gave a talk on distracted driving at the Deerfield Public Library on Monday, November 3rd, that addressed the dangers of distracted driving. The talk, "Ready to Hand Over the Keys?", featured several speakers and was open to teens and parents in and around the community. The event was presented by the Deerfield Parents Network. After the program, Lori and Felicia from the Deerfield Parents Network committee expressed their generous thanks to Scott and the other presenters for their informative presentation and support of the program, and they offered to donate to charity in gratitude: “We are so grateful to all three of you for your generous time and effort in making this program so successful. Felicia and I have both received so many wonderful compliments from people who attended the program and talked about how happy they were that they attended. Thank you again from not only the both of us, but from the entire Deerfield Parent Network committee for being so committed to this program and supporting our organization. We’d like to make a donation in your name. We have the information from the charity's you chose last year. If you would like the donation to go to a different charity, just let us know. If we don’t hear back from you, we’ll just assume you’re confirming what we have. Thanks again for everything. It was truly a great program.” Distracted driving is an issue that affects young drivers in cities and towns across Illinois, and Attorney Scott Lane is thankful to have the opportunity to reach the Deerfield community with his passion for ending the distracted-driving epidemic and keeping teen drivers safe.

“I would like to thank Scott Lane for his extraordinary efforts in my case. Scott went above and beyond to explain things to me and help me understand everything he was doing. I was amazed at how personal he took my case, I didnt think he would even remember my name being from a large firm. I just wanted to say thanks to Scott for everything he has done for me and really appreciate the personal manner he handled my case. I would truly recommend Scott or any one associated with Lane & Lane to handle any case you may have!"

Mr. Rick Joan

Partner Mark Brown was instrumental in settling a substantial medical malpractice and wrongful death case for the surviving family members of a man who died from an undiagnosed aortic dissection. After finally coming to the end of their long and difficult legal battle, the wife in the case expressed her gratitude for all his help, support, and skill during one of the hardest times in their lives. Here’s what she had to say: “After my husband died and we started to put together what happened, we were angry. He was a wonderful husband and father—the best—and we believed he died needlessly. Filing a lawsuit wasn’t about the money, although that was important while I was unable to work, struggling with health issues, and raising three kids who were in college or heading there. The most important thing by far was vindication for my husband. This was the last thing I could do for him. If you think something is wrong and do nothing, you are saying what happened was okay with you. It was not okay. “We knew something was wrong about what happened at the hospital. When we talked to Mark, we knew he believed us, and he also believed my husband’s death was preventable. It was like a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders—even if no one else believed us or agreed. Mark was wonderful. He would always give us the information about our case and play devil's advocate, telling us what the defendant's position was regarding the case. That was helpful, although I would always want to argue. Mark did an excellent job of keeping me focused, which is not always an easy thing to do. There was no doubt in our minds that Mark was doing his best for us and was on our side. He knew us, understood what my husband meant to us, and was sincerely concerned. I don’t think we would have gotten as far without him. It was difficult, but we never gave up—and neither did Mark. “Mark is awesome, and he’s an all-around nice guy. But what really matters is that he’s also great lawyer. When Mark tells you he can do something, you know it’s the truth. If you live in Illinois and ever feel something has happened to someone you love, Mark is the person to call. He’s not afraid to take on whoever—governments, large hospitals, anyone. If he thinks they’re wrong, he’ll go after them. I trusted him when I wasn’t trusting much of anyone. He believed in our case and never pushed us to settle early. He helped our family so much, and I’ve even referred my friends to him. You can also read a review from the client’s daughter about Mark’s work with her family. If your family has suffered a similar tragedy, experienced legal support is only a phone call away. Reach out to Partner Mark Brown and the rest of the team at Lane & Lane today at 312-332-1400.

Scott, Thanks for taking the case: good work and great results. You helped me with your advice and encouragement, and the final result speaks for itself. Should there be any need in the future, I’ll know who to ask for help. I’ll also spread the word. Thanks again.

Partner Scott Lane was instrumental in helping a man who was seriously injured in a car accident with a teen driver obtain the financial resources he needed for his treatment. After reading in the Lane & Lane newsletter that Scott would be speaking to teens and their parents about the problem of distracted driving, the man’s wife wrote to Scott, thanking him for his community service and for all of his help with her husband's case. This is what she said: Good morning Scott, I read the new newsletter, I had no idea you were a speaker about safe driving for teens/parents. I want to say THANK YOU!!Also reading the article about Jeff, the case, what you did for us. I'm so glad to have met you and never had to worry the last two years while you, Izzy, and your staff worked so hard on our case. THANK YOU will never be enough. There needs to be more people like you and more law firms like yours!!!! We hope to still keep in touch with all of you, because we feel a friendship was created. You are an awesome person!!Have a good day, Good luck with every case today, tomorrow, and in the future!!!

We just wanted "Thank you", for a job well done and for the hard work that you have put into settling our mom's case. You really have put your whole self into our ease and we really and truly appreciate all of your hard work and efforts! We have worked so closely with you that we feel that you have become in some sense "family" to us. We know that through this rough journey you have felt the pain that we have endured in losing our dearest mother/wife/grandmother in this horrible tragedy and our lives have forever changed! You have been so compassionate, understanding and patient while working diligently to make us content with our decision making process. Your heart has been with us 100% and we are so truly grateful to you. We are so lucky for finding such a pure - hearted, good - natured attorney with a good conscious to fight for our mom so that my family and I could rest easy knowing that we have done all that we could to help her rest in heaven. Those types of attorneys are very difficult to find, but we were one of the fortunate ones. If my precious Mom is watching down on us right now I know that she is proud of the fact that we both fought as hard as we possibly could and it was all in her honor. Thank you for believing in her and in us. You will always hold a special place in our hearts for fighting so hard for such a magnificent person that you have never met, but meant the world to us.

I would like to start by saying thank you for your compassion and dedication during our case. I don't think there is anyone more loyal or experienced as an attorney in all of the world. You made dealing and coping with the situation at hand very easy. If I ever know of anyone in need of a attorney I will recommend you for any personal injury, medical mal practice, and any abuse case. I say this because you have great comforting skills. You made me feel like you were not only my attorney but also my friend. You have been great to me. Thank you again and again. Sincerely,

Dear Scott:I was looking through some papers on my desk and buried under some files was my copy of "The Trusted Advisor" by David H. Maister, Charles H. Green & Robert M. Galford.

Please know when I think of words "Trust and Advisor" I think of you.

Recommendation for Mark A. Brown and Lane & Lane, LLC Mark Brown and his team did an excellent job of representing me in my personal injury lawsuit. I contacted Mark just before the statute of limitation was due to expire. Because of his immediate response he was able to file the necessary papers to keep me from losing any chance of any recover in this case. He was extremely thorough in reviewing the facts surrounding this case with me and explaining each document that I was required to review and sign. He also brought in outside experts whose findings greatly strengthened my case. His team collected reams of medical information concerning my accident, subsequent surgery and lengthy rehabilitation. His team confirmed lost wages and other information with my employer. During each step of the process he kept me thoroughly informed of the progress of my case. I am especially grateful for the time Mark spent in explaining in detail what would take place during my deposition. He did an outstanding job of helping me through the lengthy deposition during which numerous questions were posed by the two opposing attorneys. The case went to mediation and Mark was superb in his rapport with the mediator and in his negotiations with a room full of attorneys and executives representing the defendant. Mark's further negotiations after the mediation resulted in an out of court settlement in which I am very pleased. Overall the quality of the attention and services I received was second to none. Based on the excellent handling of my case I would highly recommend the services of Mark A. Brown and Lane & Lane, LLC.

Scott: Nobody wants to retain an attorney, however an attorney friend recommended Lane & Lane, and Scott Lane in particular. Now several years after the case was resolved, I am more than pleased with the recommendation, council, and result from Scott and the whole staff at Lane & Lane. They dealt fairly, honestly, and professionally with me on a difficult situation. Most important they were considerate of my feelings and in my mind could not have done a better job. Although the process took several years they stayed the course on my behalf, kept me informed, but did not overburden me with demands. I greatly appreciated their honesty about the case to provide reasonable expectations throughout the process. Today I would not be where I am today, happily working and pursuing my dreams, without their help and professional service. Thank you Scott and Lane & Lane.

While in college, I was hit by a vehicle while walking home. I was initially wary of pursuing a lawsuit because I'd heard many stories of protracted litigation with unsatisfactory results, but I gained the confidence to proceed after meeting with Mark Brown for the first time. Aside from his firm's proven record of success, I got the sense that he truly cared about his clients and would invest all available resources in seeking fair compensation on their behalf. I was proven right. He and his team, most notably Ray Steadmon, were professional at every turn and took the time to make sure I was informed on the progress of my case. Throughout the tedious process of trial preparation, the team was always available to address my concerns and assure that I was comfortable with how the trial would proceed. I don't think anyone in the plaintiff's chair would say that trial is an enjoyable experience, but I am extremely grateful to Mark and his team for their tireless effort and support throughout the ordeal. Thank you, Lane & Lane!

Dear Ray and Scott, Thank you for taking us on as a client and for seeing us through a very trying time in our lives. The quality of service your firm extended far exceeded our expectations. From the start, you ensured us that we were not just a client, we were part of the team. But, by the end of the process, we didn’t just feel as though we were part of the team—we felt like family. We were very comfortable talking to you about everything because we knew you guys had our best interests at heart. We can’t thank you enough for helping us get back on track. We’ll be sure to keep in touch. Best to all of you at the firm,

Hey there Mark! I don't have a clever way of saying "Thank You" for all the hard work and determination you put into getting me the best resolution to my case.

I have recommended Lane & Lane, especially you, to a friend as the most reliable, honest, and friendly law office in Chicago. Thanks Again!

It's been a few years. It was a January when my mom was still able to winter in Florida. It was an unfortunate day when she was chatting with friends after a tennis game when her accident happened. She was hit & knocked over by a woman driving a golf cart. Her leg was severely broken. She needed surgery & months of therapy & recuperation. It is not in our family's nature to sue, but in this case we felt it was necessary since it was an avoidable accident & the set back was so severe to my mom. Scott, you were recommended by mutual friends to help my mom. After the first face to face meeting at my home, we knew you were the one to help us. What really impressed me was how you treated my mom. You were patient, clear & honest. You listened to every word my mom had to say. You answered all her questions & respected all of her wishes. In the end you were able to get her a very generous monetary amount to try to help the discomfort & pain that my mom had to endure. Thank you,

I was in a car accident and needed a personal injury lawyer, but didn’t know how to find a good honest lawyer. One of my friends told me to find the best lawyers go to the web-site www.martindale.com and that’s where I found Scott Lane. Scott proved to be the best choice I could have ever made. With the stress of the accident it was pleasing to speak with someone so down to earth, and genuinely concerned. Scott is in my estimation the most honest lawyer that you could find. Scott and his staff made me feel like I was part of their family, always speaking with patience and courtesy. He did such a great job that I actually hired him to represent me on two cases. I highly recommend Scott to anyone that is looking for a lawyer with integrity. I have recommended Scott to all my family and friends.
