These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.

“Lance blew the lip off of GM's denial that they had a key switch problem that was causing deaths because the car would switch off while it was going down the road. This would also make the air bag not deploy. Despite GM's denial, Lance forced the truth out of GM through extensive discovery and perseverance.”
