I have lived in South Carolina all of my life. I was born in Lake City which is in lower Florence County. Most people know of this area as the Pee Dee region of the State. I attended the Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina and obtained a degree in Political Science with a concentration in Pre-Law, and a minor in Business. After graduation from the Citadel, I decided to take one year off and worked in a local Charleston law firm for that year. I graduated from Cumberland School of Law, at Samford University in Birmingham Alabama in 2001. During law school I was active in intramurals, law school extracurricular activities, and student organizations. I also worked at a law firm for the last 2 years I was in school.
Upon graduation I knew I wanted to return to South Carolina and was fortunate to have an opportunity to Clerk for the Honorable Paul E. Short, when he was the Circuit Court Judge for the Sixth Judicial Circuit for South Carolina. Judge Short is now serving on the South Carolina Court of Appeals. After my Clerkship I worked in a variety of areas of the law and for several different law firms before deciding to hang out my own shingle in 2006.
Since I began practicing law, I have litigated both numerous jury trials and bench trials. In addition, I have participated in hundreds of contested court matters. My focus has and still is on increasing my skill in the courtroom. I strive to provide devoted, focused and if needed, aggressive representation for my clients. Practicing effectively in the State's Courts requires knowledge of the Court process. My desire is and has been to be the best trial advocate for my Client, in any case. Whether in Family Court, Circuit Court, or Magistrate's Court, dedicating myself to winning my Client's case is paramount.
In 2010 I attended the Houston Family Law Trial Institute hosted by the South Texas School of Law. This was an 8 day intensively focused trial training with some of the nations best trial lawyers serving as faculty and instructors for the course.
Again, in May of 2011, I attended the Houston Family Law Trial Institute because I knew I would greatly benefit from the training and education that it provided a second time. The benefits were immeasurable and can only be put into practice for my Clients. I believe that not being scared of a courtroom helps win the client’s case. Therefore, it is my commitment to serve my Clients as a listener, a negotiator, and a trial advocate.
I have practiced in Columbia, South Carolina since 2004, and I have had my own practice the Lane Law Firm since 2006. I am a member of the following organizations:
Richland County Bar
South Carolina Bar
American Bar Association
Family Law Section of the SC Bar.

Ryan and his team were absolutely amazing. They were increibly polite and helpful and they made the entire process very easy. I've never worked with a more knowledgeable firm. I recommend the Lane law Firm to all my family and friends.
Very passionate about Soldiers and their rights! Highly recommend! His superior knowledge of custody/divorce surpasses the surrounding area competition. His fight for child’s best interest hands down speaks for itself! Don’t wait go hire him!
If you're reading this it means you are about to face a big change in your life. One that you may not be ready for. One that you just can't lose due to what you have at stake. You're looking for the right person to be by your side. That was me when I was filing for divorce. I had met with several lawyers before a friend referred me to Ryan. It was just so intimidating speaking to the others about such personal details. I mean, after all they were complete strangers! Stepping in to Ryan's office you're greeted by a gentle little Terrier named Sam, who helps to put you at ease. For me, it felt more like visiting an old friend. When Ryan and I met, I could tell he really cares about his clients. During the whole process, his office was upfront on costs, about any delays we may face while we waited for a court date, and about court itself. He prepared me for multiple outcomes. Were there times I couldn't get a hold of Ryan? Well yeah, there were a few but considering he has court throughout South Carolina it is understandable. He usually replies within 24-72 hours, and even when he was on a family vacation. If it was an urgent question, I would call the office to speak with his paralegal Julie. She was always patient with my questions. Believe me, there was a lot. The whole team is very compassionate. They deal with divorce everyday but never once made me feel that I was "just a case". They understand this is your life. But like you, it all started with me looking at reviews. The good and the bad. I followed my gut and have never regretted hiring him as my lawyer. Best of luck to you on your case.
Ryan, is a credit to lawyers in General and to lawyers in specific. I had been to several lawyers with my case, and each of them were nothing more than ambulance chasers in Shoddy Cheap suits. They didn't see me, they only saw dollar signs, Ryan, got to know me, reviewed my case, explained my options. I truly felt that this guy cared about me as a person not as a number or even as a piggy bank. When we finally did go to court, Ryan shut the defendant down and got the case dismissed. He exceeded all of my expectation. I have to believe that if you want good quality representation at a fair price, then you should seek out Ryan and let him help you the way that he has helped me.
The entire staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Made me feel like they personally cared. Was very honest and upfront!! Recommend to anybody needing a caring family lawyer!
Posting a very good review for the Lane Law Firm. Hired to help get me through divorce. Found out about Ryan Lane through my military co-worker, who also hired/highly recommended him. Has extensive knowledge of military law. But what got the job done, was his direct approach, being straight up front, and not sugar-coating anything. Drew out the facts and cut out the emotions, and built my case from those essentials.
Very professional and a great lawyer. Would highly recommend to others.
Mr. Lane handled my case in a professional and compassionate manner. He is knowledgeable and very responsive. I would recommend him to others.
Ryan is a great lawyer! Highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great lawyer
If you want something done right, hire Ryan. He is one of the best lawyers I know. He will get the job done for your satisfaction.
Mr. Lane is an excellent attorney and person. He is truly professional and knowledgable in his field. Mr. Lane handled my case efficiently and his staff is always so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Mr. Lane to anyone looking for an attorney!
Great job with my divorce! Mr. Lane and his staff were knowledgeable, efficient, and caring.
I was a witness in a case, where Mr. Lane represented a defendant, I knew. I found him to be professional, organized and a true credit to his profession. Mr. Lane is to be commended in handling of a very hostile plaintiff and had more grace under pressure than other lawyers that I have dealt with in the past. If I ever find myself in need of a lawyer, I will run not walk to his firm and know that my case will be handled with the utmost professionalism and quality that anyone could ask for.
Ryan is a great lawyer. He has represented me in two cases. He won both cases for me. The first case he won almost 6 times the damages. The second case he won 3 times the damages. Both Ryan and his staff are very professional. When Ryan says he will do something, you can guarantee it will be done!
Ryan took my divorce case. It was a complicated case and I felt in over my head. Not only did Ryan reassure me that everything was going to be ok he made sure it was! His office staff was excellent in keeping me updated with the case status. I felt that his firm truly cared about my children and I. It's never easy going through a divorce and custody battle but I can reassure you his team made it 100 times easier for me. I highly recommend his firm.
I had a custody case where the mother had my daughter. I seen 2 previous lawyers who told me I didn't have a chance because A I'm a male and B the child lives out of state with the mother. When I met MR Ryan he told me not only he will accept the case but know he will win it. We won the case in SC travel to MS got my daughter back she been here since no trouble.
