About Lance

Lance began his legal career with Beasley Allen in 1997. Currently, his practice focuses on whistleblower litigation, wage & hour litigation and class actions. Lance has represented thousands of clients at Beasley Allen resulting in multi-million dollar settlements, and influenced corporations to correct their improper practices.

Notable Cases

Lance initially focused his practice in the area of consumer fraud litigation. He handled actions brought by individuals who were victims of predatory lending practices. Some of these deceptive practices included mortgage fraud, equity theft, loan flipping and insurance packing.

His current focus, whistleblower litigation, is a particularly important area of the firm’s Consumer Fraud Section. Under the whistleblower provisions of the False Claims Act, a whistleblower is entitled to receive up to 30 percent of any money the government recovers. This is both an incentive and a reward for the tremendous sacrifices – both personal and professional – whistleblowers often make by reporting the truth.

In addition, Lance was a member of the trial team in a landmark case involving a door-to-door sales and finance scam, which resulted in a verdict of $581 million. As a result of this litigation, the finance company quit these types of activities in the state of Alabama.
