our story

Who We Are

Our firm believes in practical advice, effective legal strategies and good results while always keeping the cost to our clients in mind. Scott Lane and John McGowan founded Lane & McGowan, LLP in 2013, after leaving the Los Angeles law firm Monteleone & McCrory. With over 40 years of combined legal experience under our belt, we have left behind the big firm lifestyle for a more personal relationship with our clients. Once you’ve worked with us, you will realize that we have the experience you want at a competitive price and in an environment that makes us available to meet your needs.

We are a construction law firm. We represent public works and private works contractors, subcontractors, owners, architects, engineers and material suppliers. We assist them with contract reviews and drafting, and we advise them with their ongoing construction disputes.  If disputes are unable to be resolved at the job level, we are experienced in all aspects of civil litigation, mediation, and arbitration. We are committed to making ourselves accessible to you, keeping you regularly informed, seeking your input and working together to achieve the best results possible.
