Brian Lanz provides caring, efficient and effective legal service to clients throughout Sonoma County. He enjoys having his own practice, because it allows him to focus his work more directly on the needs and goals of the client.
Brian attended college in Santa Rosa and Chico California and then attended Empire LawSchool, where he obtained his Juris Doctorate degree. He chose to attend law school in Santa Rosa because he could work with practicing attorneys and for the District Attorneys Office, while studying the law. He completed his law degree and passed the bar shortly thereafter.
Brian has been practicing law and primarily family law for more than 15 years now. He previously worked for the Sonoma County District Attorney and the Child Support Department, before starting his own law practice. Since then he’s guided families and individuals through the legal process in all types of cases, including civil, criminal and family law. Over time he chose to narrow down his practice to the area of family law, because he felt he had a more direct impact with his clients in this area of the law.
During his time off work, Brian enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, coaching baseball and basketball, golfing with friends and working out to reduce the stress load of a legal practice. He was raised with parents that divorced and understands the emotional and financial issues they go through. It’s his objective in every case to determine the needs of the client and tailor the work their case toward their needs.
