Nejla K. Lane (Attorney)
Ms. Lane was born in Turkey (Old Antioch) and raised as a Guest Worker’s child in Bavaria- Germany. She graduated from Friedrich-List Schule in Ulm Germany with a degree in business. Shortly after completing her business degree, Ms. Lane attended Foreign Language school and is fluent in German, Turkish, and English.
After making the decision to come to the United States, Ms. Lane attended Texas State University and graduated cum laude in Psychology and German, while participating in the school’s Honor’s Program – writing a thesis entitled “The Shaping of Human Personality”.
Ms. Lane then decided to use her skills in psychology and her knowledge of multiple languages and different cultures to become a lawyer. She then moved to East Lansing, Michigan and attended school at the Michigan State University College of Law, where she graduated with her Juris Doctor with a concentration in International and Comparative Law. While in Law School, Ms. Lane was involved in several constitutional researches including, but not limited to, the United States Patriot Act and Atrocities of WWI. This enabled her to be sensitive to clients’ needs and is by many,
considered to be constitutional “warrior” fighting for her clients’ rights to the bitter end. She has successfully represented clients from all walks of life, socioeconomic statuses, and all over the United States, Germany, and Turkey.
Ms. Lane’s favorite areas of Law are Criminal Defense work, Personal Injury/Accidents, Construction Law, Family Law, and Immigration Law, just to mention a few. Ms. Lane is passionate about her clients and goes the extra mile to get favorable outcomes, no matter how insurmountable a case seems.
