Experience is key to effective and efficient electrical service and troubleshooting, and Lance has it. In a matter of less than an hour, he sorted out a significant and potentially dangerous problem in the main circuit breakers for our two unit condominium and then fixed it. He's thorough, neat, professional and friendly, and loves explaining what he's doing if the client is at all interested. Very highly recommended.

Lance has completed six different electrical projects for us. They ranged from installing recessed lighting to complete refurbishment of our swimming pool electrical system.

He thoroughly plans the job meeting all codes, works efficiently and leaves the job site clean resulting in minimized cost and allowing completion of work on schedule.

What more can I say, Lance is the best of the best!

Very recently, my husband was out of town and I had an electrical emergency on a Saturday afternoon. I went to N2N and chose to call Lance (liked his company name) & 45 minutes later he was at my house with his son, working their magic.

Lance is an electric detective extraordinaire! First challenge was to figure out where the problem was, then FIX IT!

Lance’s experience is off the charts! His attention to detail incredible. He and his son were meticulous, cautious with personal belongings and cleaned up everything.

If you EVER need an electrician? LANCE IS YOUR MAN.

Lance Gohl is a very unusual electrician! He has the required experience, but he has something a lot of technicians do not have: patience and perseverance!
We had an older, very delicate modern hanging dining room fixture that needed a lot of electrical know-how to reassemble and hang.
Lance came to our home and worked for hours only to have it fail at the last minute. When he came back a month or so later, he had thought about it and refused to be defeated. For this alone, we recommend Lance to anyone needing electrical help. But there’s more: he repaired the fixture!
Trouble shooting, skill, knowledge, communication and determination are rare in any field. Thank you, Lance!

I'm writing to tell you that Lance Gohl, who just installed a new electrical panel at our house, a major job replacing a very outdated one, is amazing.
He keeps in touch about the timing of his initial visit and subsequent work.
He assesses the situation and thoroughly explains everything about it and lays out the options for addressing it.
When the job is done, he makes sure every detail is taken care of and briefs you on it.

I was looking for an experienced electrician that had the patience and skill to run power to a remote mini-split A/C unit in my Venice loft. The job involved upgrading the electrical panel, mapping out the most efficient aesthetic without cutting into too many walls and drilling through concrete. Lance was thoughtful in his approach and fair on cost. He did a great job and I would hire him again for big or small projects.

I’m happy to write a review for Lance. He did a great job; we couldn’t be happier. Our house was built in the 50’s and our electrical panel was still the original system installed with the house. We were having near-constant electrical issues so we decided it was time to completely modernize the system at our house. We spoke with several contractors/electricians but given the strong recommendation of people we knew and the one small project he did for us, we trusted Lance with one of the most critical features of any home. He couldn’t have done a better job. Everything he did was strictly to code, not a single shortcut was ever discussed, everything was completed on time even when he had to work into the evening, he kept everything clean and delivered everything we needed. The inspector that came to approve the work commented on the high quality of workmanship—which, with a new baby at home, really gives us peace of mind. The price we were quoted by Lance and agreed to is exactly what we spent, not a dollar more, even though some additional items were needed last minute. We cannot recommend Lance Gohl more highly!

Lance installed light fixtures, recessed lighting and track lighting for me. He’s very professional, punctual and does good work. His professionalism is a breath of fresh air. He came when he said he would be there. And he did what he said he was going to do. I will definitely use him again. He came highly recommended by a friend and the fact he is licensed is a plus for me. He had to take a few days to do what we needed to do and he kept me informed on what was going on, giving us options as he worked. I highly recommend him!L

He’s a great electrician! I’m a plumber and have known him for a long time. I own a building in Century City and he does all the maintenance. I have another rental in Mar Vista and Lance works commercial, as well as residential. He’s smart! He does new circuits, everything! He does bigger jobs, too. I was referred to him by another electrician that was too busy to help me and I’ve been with him ever since. He’s always on time, really nice. He has a very professional truck, with a lot of stuff on it. It seems like he always has what he needs to do a job, which saves a lot of time.

Lance put a chandelier in my dining room. He was on time, professional and courteous from start to finish. He finished the work in a timely manner and everything was great! When he left it seemed as if he had never been here. He came to me recommended by a friend and his prices we absolutely reasonable. He also had valuable suggestions and I will definitely use him again.

Lance’s work is really, really good and he is a super nice person. I’m a contractor and he’s the guy I use on my own home. What I like about him is that he will fix a light fixture without making a big mess of the wall! I highly recommend Lance!

I highly recommend Lance. He’s a very trustworthy, good guy. He saved me a lot of money. Aside from being reasonably priced, he rebuilt the fans in my bathroom that were not replaceable rather than telling me I had to replace them which would have meant tearing out the ceiling. He also did some rewiring for my digital TV. It was a lot of work, but he did a great job.

I do remote pool and spa systems. Lance does all of my electrical work. I’m very pleased with the quality of his work. He’s a perfectionist, so his work is really clean. He’s very professional – reliable and punctual. If he says he’ll be somewhere at a certain time, he’s always there five minutes early. He doesn’t charge too much or too little. His pricing is right where it should be.

I’m an interior designer and bring Lance in for all of my projects. He’s rigged whole houses for me and done outdoor lighting, too. He’ll do the little jobs, too. His work is very good quality. His prices are reasonable.


Brentwood - March 1, 2008

Lance replaced my electrical boxes, and installed the electrical fixtures in my bathrooms. I trust Lance – so much that I let him work in my place when I wasn’t there.

I’m a building manager. Lance is my regular electrician. I know the work he does will always be good quality. He’s an honest person. I recommend him.
