Francis F. Lane
About Francis F. LaneDuring the course of his legal career, Attorney Lane has had extensive experience successfully representing clients who have sustained bodily injuries and damages as the result of motor vehicle accidents, accidents involving trucks, bicycles and motorcycles, as well as slip and fall accidents, construction injuries, dog bites and various claims caused by the negligence of others.
Lane Law Offices has also developed a large family Law practice and respected reputation representing clients in divorce and separation proceedings, as well as the broad range of domestic issues including child custody, parental rights, child support, alimony, adultery and fault claims, asset division and debt allocation, domestic violence, and grandparents rights.
Established as an experienced trial lawyer, early in his legal career Attorney Lane also recognized the importance of developing alternate methods to settle and bring closure to domestic disputes in a manner which would avoid unnecessary long term damage, recrimination, and burdensome financial expense to the parties, which so often results from the adversarial conflict which occurs in the courtroom. Having completed the necessary comprehensive training, Attorney Lane has attained Certification as a Family Law Mediator by the State of New Hampshire Marital Mediator Certification Board and has been appointed by the New Hampshire Family Division Court to serve as a Court Marital Mediator. In 1993 Attorney Lane was appointed by the New Hampshire Superior Court to also serve as a Mediator in the Civil Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) program, and has served in this capacity since the inception of the program.
