About Matthew P. Lane Esq.

CBA Lawyer Badge
Matt Lane is a full-time mediator who has earned a reputation for helping parties to settle even the most complex and difficult cases. Mr. Lane ensures that all parties are genuinely heard and understood during the mediation session, while simultaneously developing opportunities for the parties to effectively evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of their case. His approach fosters an ability for parties to make informed decisions about the case while increasing the potential for settlement. Mr. Lane's mediation practice is informed by his multi-state litigation experience, both as an Assistant United States Attorney and private practice litigator. He is a dynamic mediator who remains committed to exploring each avenue of resolution with honesty and integrity, while maintaining confidentiality and respect for the views of counsel and their clients. Mr. Lane obtained his mediation training from the prestigious Straus Institute for Dispute Resolution at Pepperdine Caruso School of Law, and the University of Missouri School of Law Center for the Study of Dispute Resolution. As a practicing lawyer, he was fortunate to work with, and learn from, many of the country's most well-known and successful mediators. Mr. Lane is equally comfortable mediating online, in-person, or in any combination that makes sense for the parties. More information is available at
