The law office of Lance D. Gill, Esq., located in the City of Green, Ohio, is a full service law firm that handles Family Law including divorce, dissolution and adoption, Criminal/Traffic Defense, Bankruptcy, Estate/Probate matters, Civil Litigation, Juvenile Law, Real Estate Law issues and Landlord Tenant matters.  I serve clients in all the counties located in Northeastern Ohio.

Family Law
Every family faces difficulties and challenges, but when those difficulties and challenges turn into crisis, you need experienced and understanding legal advice. The end of your marriage may mean you need to resolve issues of child custody and visitation with your children, child support and spousal support, and the division and distribution of marital assets and debts. I will work with you and your spouse to achieve fair and equitable agreements on these issues, while always protecting your rights and interests. When turmoil erupts within your family, nothing can replace the legal advice and guidance of an experienced family law attorney.

Criminal/Traffic Defense
There are few experiences more frightening than facing a criminal charge. If the state is trying to convict you of a misdemeanor or a felony, you need experienced representation. Regardless of the crime you are charged with, a conviction can have devastating consequences, such as large fines, jail time or a prison sentence.
With extensive courtroom experience both in various Courts of Common Pleas and Municipal and County courts as defense counsel and as a former Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for the City of Alliance, Ohio, I can aggressively protect your rights and fight tirelessly to protect you from a criminal conviction.
I represent those charged with DUI, habitual offender violations, and other drunk driving charges, reckless driving, speeding, driving on a suspended or revoked license, and other traffic-related offenses. Traffic infractions can have serious criminal consequences. A conviction for DUI will result in fines and possible jail time.
In addition, your insurance company may increase your rates to an unmanageable level, and you may lose your driver's license. An experienced attorney can make all the difference in a difficult case. Even if you live out of state, and incurred the violation while driving in Northeastern Ohio, I can assist you with these charges.

I assist individuals facing financial trouble. If you are overwhelmed with debt and you don't see a light at the end of the tunnel, bankruptcy may be the right choice for you.
If you are dealing with collections agencies, foreclosures, repossessions, and/or wage garnishments, filing for bankruptcy can provide you with immediate protection. Whether you lack assets and qualify for a Chapter 7 or want to prevent a foreclosure on your house with Chapter 13 Wage Earner's Plan, I will ensure you receive every possible benefit available to you under the bankruptcy laws.
We are a debt relief agency under the United States Code. We help people file for bankruptcy relief under the Bankruptcy Code.

The death of a spouse or other loved one is a very difficult emotional time in anyone’s life.  Dealing with the “business” aftermath of such an event can be overwhelming.  Many people are afraid and concerned about the probate process.  They believe the process is lengthy and expensive.  This belief can be true depending on who you retain to handle these matters for you.  I will assist you in getting through this very difficult time without causing you additional heartache and worry by costing you a fortune doing it.

Civil Litigation
Sometimes during the everyday living of our lives, we find ourselves involve in disputes over money.  We have either hired someone to do a service for us and they let us down or someone claims they are owed money from us.  Being in one of these situations causes great worry and concern and sometimes it simply makes us mad.  I can assist you in evaluating your situation and advising you regarding the best way to proceed whether that be representing you in court or negotiating a settlement.

Juvenile Law
Now and then, we as children or our own children face some scrapes with the law.  These traumatic events can certainly be difficult at the time but can also leave painful scars as a result.  As a result, it is imperative that if and when a child makes a mistake, he or she has the most prepared and compassionate legal representation to ensure that 1) the child’s experience is a positive one (that is as much as possible) and 2) the system does not unfairly or unjustly deal with that child.  The experience of a child in Juvenile court should be one where the child learns to avoid the circumstances that created his or her need to be there.  We can work together to make sure that is the result.

Real Estate
Since the beginning of my career, I have focused a lot of my practice on real estate related matters.  I have owned and operated two (2) title agencies.  The first was called Seven Ranges Title Agency, which was located in Minerva from 1990 to 2001.  The second is called Clear Title Solutions, Inc., which is operated out of my legal offices in Green, Ohio.  Throughout my career, I have assisted clients in the preparation of purchase agreements, land installment contracts, leases including those with options to purchase, deeds, mortgages, promissory notes and other real estate related instruments.  As an attorney who owns and operates Clear Title Solutions, Inc., I’m involved on a daily basis with multiple real estate issues in the preparation of title insurance commitments and the closing of purchase and refinance transactions.  Just as I provide legal services at reasonable rates, Clear Title Solutions, Inc. is dedicated to offering title services at the lowest rates in Ohio.  If you are buying or selling a home or if  you are refinancing your mortgage, it pays for you to check out and compare the costs of the title agency you might want to use.  Compare any other title company’s rates to the rates of Clear Title Solutions, Inc., and you will quickly discover that you’ll save significant money using Clear Title Solutions, Inc.  For more information, you can check out its website at www.cleartitlesolutions.com.

Landlord Tenant
Prosecuting an eviction or forfeiture of a land contract requires a complete understanding of the Landlord Tenant Act in Ohio.  I am an experienced attorney in handling these matters and can represent your interests for a reasonable fee.
I have attempted here to give the reader a brief overview of the areas of practice that I engage in.  This list is by no means meant to be exhaustive.  As a result, if you have any legal matter you would like to discuss with someone, please feel free to contact me.  There is never any fee for discussing your problem.
