Client Representation Philosophy

Eric C. Lang’s General Background

Helping people we care about solve problems and achieve goals is more than just a "ten-word" mission statement. I believe that every legal matter presents a problem, the solution to which depends entirely on defining goals. If the problem is a $50,000 lawsuit, and a win costs $100,000, then winning might not be the solution. When client and counsel focus on a goal and not just an outcome, everyone can win.

After graduating first in his law school class from the University of Florida in 1990, Mr. Lang practiced with Long, Aldridge & Norman (n/k/a Dentons).  He left partnership there in 1998 to join Paul Hastings and formed his current firm in 2003.  His practice is devoted to serving the business-related litigation and general counseling needs of companies and individuals who desired sophisticated services but were outside of the target market of the larger firms. He has handled a wide range of matters, ranging from multi-million-dollar litigation to simple business formation. Further details can be found at About Eric C. Lang.






















Important Current Announcement:  Chief Justice's Commission on Professionalism - April 30, 2021



On April 30, I have the honor of participating in a panel presentation produced by the Chief Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court on the all-too-prevalent issue of attorney suicide. The program, hosted by former Attorney General Sally Yates, lasts three hours and consists of three panels. May of the panelists have personal experience with the topic, either through loss of a loved one or survival of an attempt.  It should be a program like no other on this topic. I encourage you to attend, and to encourage others to attend. Register here, or by clicking on the flyer.

Core Competencies

Lang Legal has three practice emphases: dispute resolution, business representation, and consulting attorney. Though these practice areas are explored in depth on the corresponding pages, they can be briefly summarized as follows:

  • Consulting Attorney: Brief / pleading writing and assistance; focused legal research; trial preparation; training.


Important Note About This Website

I have made every effort to link statements on these pages to court decisions, filed pleadings, public presentations, news accounts and other appropriate sources because I want you to know that I'm not "just saying" things. Please follow the provided links. I can tell you that I've left what I hope are some entertaining "easter eggs" behind some of those links (by which  I  mean, things to cause laughter which are not at all serious).
