• Lance and everyone in his office immediately came to our rescue, taking everything off of our hands so that we could focus on my husband's recovery. There are no words to describe how thankful we are for Lance and all that he did for our family.

Feedback from Lance’s speaking engagements . .

As a retired chief of police, and current deputy director for the Hampton Roads Criminal Justice Training Academy (HRCJTA) I have been asked many times to provide recommendations. This is one I can give with no reservation. Lance has provided training for the Hampton Roads Criminal Justice Training Academy’s Leadership Institute for several years. He is a great asset for the academy as his presentation is always well attended and we have had very positive feedback from the supervisors who attended the training. I always listen to his presentation and find it relevant, current, and on point. Lance is an advocate for law enforcement while still providing needed instruction. If you have not attended one of his presentations, I strongly recommend you take the time to do so” – Scott Barlow, Deputy Director, Hampton Roads Criminal Justice Training Academy.

“Lance LoRusso has been an instructor at our sessions many times. His wealth of experience, thorough knowledge and expertise on legal issues that law enforcement agencies face, combined with his skill in communicating to a large group, made his class both educational and enjoyable.  Lance held everyone’s attention and received all positive reviews, which is rare for a class on legal issues.  We highly recommend him to any agency needing legal training on complex issues law enforcement agencies must work through today.  Lance is an invaluable resource as a speaker and training instructor.” – F.B.I. Georgia Law Enforcement Executive Development Seminar (FBI GA LEEDS)

On behalf of GALEC, we would like to thank Lance for participating in our recent annual training. As usual, Lance brought a level of expertise and passion for helping that generated interesting and exciting learning opportunities. Lance’s knowledge and broad experience of law enforcement and other legal areas ensures he is an excellent resource for not only law enforcement chaplains but anyone seeking a clear understanding of relational processes and avoiding legal quagmires.” .- Georgia Association of Law Enforcement Chaplains.

“On behalf of the Baccalaureate Nursing Program at Kennesaw State University, I would like to thank you for providing such an excellent presentation on Legal Issues in Nursing. The students really gained so much through your obvious rich background in the law and specifically the law and healthcare. It is these types of experiences that not only enrich our Leadership course, but also expose our senior students to what is going on in clinical practice. “- Leslie Himot, MSN, RN, CNE,  Lecturer/Clinical Instructor, WellStar School of Nursing
