Here are comments and testimonials from actual clients that Scott has represented over the years:
” … Scott Lanin represented me, on behalf of a close friend [as a creditor] in a bankruptcy proceeding. His advice was unfailingly excellent, his written work comprehensive and understandable and his court appearances lucid and well-presented. Also, of great importance was his promptness, accountability, and sensitivity . . .” Michael Ambler, Esq. (Former Chief Tax Counsel, Texaco)
“I just wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on the outcome . . . I would never have thought that you would have been able to recover $[amount is confidential per settlement agreement] on this case. This will probably result in a 100% recovery of the balance once the other [related] actions conclude. Although the [other] bank aided their customer’s fraudulent activities through negligence, I was doubtful that you would prevail against their attorneys to get such a large sum. I know this wasn’t an easy case, but your perseverance and hard work certainly paid-off. Once again, thank you for a job well done (and keep up the good work)!!” Regards, Fred Ferrara, Group Vice President and Manager, Commercial Asset Recovery Division, European American Bank, Uniondale, N.Y.
” I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of the hard work and dedication you and your staff provided to me during my tenure at European American Bank. As a result of your efforts, I experienced many successful recoveries. Additionally, your expertise in the bankruptcy arena has now earned the bank a landslide win on one case [European American Bank v. Ira Lapes, 254 B.R. 501 (Bankr. Fla. 2000)] in the state of Florida, with a monumental overturn of the homestead exemption act! Bravo, Scott! Thank you again, and please feel free to share my comments with any prospective clients you may encounter – I wholeheartedly will recommend your services!” Sincerely, Ellen J. Terry, Vice President, Wells Fargo Bank, Austin, Texas
“One of the reasons I use Lanin and Associates [now Lanin Law P.C.] is the knowledge that Scott will personally be handling my cases. With most other firms files are passed on to associates. Some of these associates are good attorneys, but unfortunately, some of these are not . . . I know I get quality representation 100% of the time.” John Murphy, Credit Manager & Treasurer, H.O. Penn Machinery, Co. Inc., Poughkeepsie, Bronx and Long Island, N.Y.
“I have been very satisfied with the services you provide. The nature of the corporate issues at hand were somewhat more complicated than the ordinary personal bankrupcty. You made them easily understandable and backed up your comments with copies of sections of law for my own perusal. Moreover, the critical timing involved with our case was accomodated by you over the weekend, accessability to you has been excellent, and the interface you provide with our corporate counsel to satisfy the Court’s request for information has made things go smoothly. Thank you for all you have done. The professionalism is noticed and appreciated.”
Very Best Regards, Thomas Mangione, Director, Wintrade, Inc., One World Trade Center, New York, N.Y.
