CLIENT PRAISE & TESTIMONIALS
” … 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 clear 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.

“Scott Lanin and his team are seasoned professionals who get the job done. I couldn’t have been more happy with the results of my case and my decision in selecting Scott and his team.”
Mr. VJL, Middle Village, N.Y. (1/7/11)
“I hired Scott Lanin and he was very honest and very knowledgeable about handling my modification. He took his time and experience to handle my case. I had a nice experience with his paralegal Diane who is professional and courteous and responded to my needs as a client.”
Lester, Brooklyn, N.Y. (9/2/15 Avvo Client Review)
“Listen Up – Until recently, I had never experienced the emotional journey of suing anyone, much less a member of my own family. The timing couldn’t have been worse. I lost my partner of 25 years and, several months later, my 10 year old dog. Although I was at the lowest point of my life, I had no choice but to hire an attorney to help me fight for what was rightfully mine. Through a recommendation, I hired Scott Lanin, of Lanin Law P.C. I was treated with respect, was always in the loop and never felt condescended to – all things I hold dear. In the end, I, along with other family members who also inherited the property, won a hard fought disputed case, fair and square, through a court ordered sale of property, resulting in an unanticipated and surprisingly high auction price. I never expect to have this experience in my lifetime again, but if I do, Lanin Law is a no brainer!””
Eileen, New York, N.Y. (10/8/15 Avvo Client Review)
“Home Mortgage Restructure – Scott did a fabulous job. Scott helped us understand the tools available to encourage our lender to negotiate a restructured mortgage rather than foreclosing. The ability to slow the process enough to re-enter the workplace and build up our earnings again while simultaneously negotiating with a lender taking foreclosure action was the difference between staying in the same home, sending the kids to the same schools and drastically restructuring out lives. It wasn’t easy, but it wouldn’t have happened at all without Scott’s help. The fees were fair, and well worth it.”
Clients, Long Island, N.Y. (10/10/15 Avvo Client Review)
“A Trustworthy Attorney – I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Scott Lanin for over 11 years; however, he has represented my company since the inception of his firm in 1999. Over the years we have worked together on many different types of cases, each unique in their own way. He has been instrumental in helping to recover large debts and equally effective in counseling me through difficult contracts and legalese. He is extremely knowledgeable about the law, yet has the ability to explain it in a simple, comprehensive manner. While Scott is more versed in the law than I am he listens to my comments and ideas about approaching a case and never forces us in a direction that I am uncomfortable with. Scott is attentive to the details involved and is thorough and responsive in his replies –this is an asset not easy to find but immensely appreciated. Scott is a professional who is dedicated and eager to assist. If you are seeking counsel, I highly recommend Scott Lanin. You will not be disappointed.
Deserie, Poughkeepsie, N.Y. (11/3/15 Avvo Client Review)
“Very Trustworthy Attorney – I hired Scott in the latter part of 2008 to represent me for a loan modification and /or Foreclosure. It’s now 2015 and Scott has done an excellent job protecting my interests. I am not sure what the ultimate outcome will be, but, Scott will be protecting my interests all the way.
Bobby Solanto, Rockland County, N.Y. (11/6/15 Avvo Client Review)
“Excellent advice – Consulted Attorney
I consulted with Scott on a bankruptcy/collection matter. He correctly advised me not to pursue it as the odds were stacked against me and emotion would not make it work. He was correct 100%. None of the creditors that filed against the company were paid and he wound up saving me thousands in legal expenses that I never would have recouped.
Sam (11/14/15 Avvo Client Review)
“Scott, As a former lawyer [and now a financial adviser], I know what it’s like to have to put the extra effort in to meet deadlines. It’s never fun but always necessary. I appreciate you going the distance on my behalf on Thursday [working until 2am to meet a court deadline when the client had been out of town the week before]. Please share [this gift basket] generously and enjoy!”
