Inside the Firm


As your lawyer…

Raymond Lang founded the law firm in the midst of an economic crisis because he saw the need for lawyers who are driven to help people through the recovery process.

The Compassionate Attorney is the basic principle in the firm’s mission. Ray has coached and is sought by many attorneys and legal officials in changing how the profession is perceived by learning his unique methods centered on the values shift, giving service to others, and balancing affordable and fair compensation for services provided.

“The legal profession is extremely competitive and specialized, making it difficult to find caring attorneys who will provide personal service for specific needs and general advice.” The firm cuts through the “noise” and focuses on the person, first and foremost, then builds the strategic plan for the best outcome for each situation.

As a team based organization, we closely match the needs of the person with expertise, both inside and outside the legal profession. It is known as the Mastermind Principle, whereby we work together to find the best solution for the person.

If you have read this far, you are not here by coincidence. It’s part of a greater plan and purpose for you.
