Brian Lance’s entire legal career has been dedicated to representing people who have been harmed by others. Brian is a trial lawyer and has tried numerous jury trials and arbitrations resulting in successful outcomes for his clients. Brian handles cases throughout the State of California and consistently obtains high six-figure and seven-figure settlements and verdicts on behalf of his clients.
