Paul is great to work with.I chose him because I thought he would have a good repore with the Judge and prosecutors. He did. He told me he would proceed any way I wanted to. You don't hear that to often. We followed his advise, which led to a dismissal of both my charges. His office is high end, easy to get to, and lots of parking. His prices are a bit lower than you would expect.
I don't plan on being back in the court system, but if I do. I will definetly have Paul at my side.

Paul handled my speeding ticket several years ago, so when I was rear ended last fall with both of my kids in the car he was the first attorney I thought of to go to. After months of doctor, chiropractic and massage appointments I was ready to settle and be done with this. Paul was very helpful and kept me informed during the entire process. He was able to get me and my kids several thousand dollars more than I had even hoped for!! I am very happy I used Paul.

Paul handled my assault 4 case very well and ended up in a dismissal. He is very knowledgeable, caring, and trustworthy person. If you want a good and responsive attorney, call Hanson. He even helped me get this history expunged from my record.

Paul Hanson was extremely professional in the circumstance I got myself into. I was very pleased with the outcome of the court and how smoothly Paul took care of the issues for me with ease on my part. I have an extremely busy schedule and Paul worked very vigorously to make sure that everything fell in perfectly with my schedule. My circumstance could have easily gone a different way but because of Paul and his extensive knowledge with the subject and his background it was in my favor on all charges I was facing. I highly recommend Paul to anyone facing any type of criminal charge or DOL charge. Every possible outcome was explained to me in great detail and he helped me immensely make my decision in which route to take my case. Paul Hanson comes highly recommended from me and was also recommended to me by 3 other people who I personally know very well and trust.

Thanks you Paul for keeping me well informed during this process.
Very honest person about my chances of dismissal.
I'm glad we won!

Paul was able to get my speeding ticket dismissed. I got a ticket in Mill Creek. He handled the entire thing, I didn't even have to go to court. He was able to get the ticket dismissed. It doesn't even show up on my driving record now. And it never effected my insurance rates!!

Paul Hanson has an incredible wealth of knowledge regarding the legal system and processes involved in a DUI charge, and this is no doubt due to his 3 decades worth of experience. He has a laid back, congenial attitude that instantly puts at ease you, the client, and seemingly everyone else he interacts with. Lake Forest Park is known to be a tough court to bargain in, and so his positive rapport with both the judge and the prosecutor gave me a lot of confidence, and may have very well tipped the balance in my favor, ultimately reducing the charge. His explanation of the consequences for each possible outcome were crystal clear, his directions for what to do pretrial were simple and straightforward, and his answers to my questions were exhaustive, yet elegantly plain in a way that I could understand. Not to mention his fee is considerably lower than most Seattle lawyers!
I can't emphasize enough how Paul's extensive experience allowed him to give me a truly clear picture of my case and all the possibilities, the mindset of the judge, prosecutor, the jury (though we never went to trial), and even the police office who pulled me over. Being convicted of a DUI can be a stressful affair, and Paul gave me confidence in myself and his skill long before my court date. Answered every single phone call. Thanks Paul!

Paul Hanson is a great lawyer with a lot of experience working in the Edmonds area. He was familiar with the court, prosecutor and judge and they knew him and were very willing to work with us. He was clearly respected by the legal professionals in Edmonds and he got the job done. He got my charge reduced to a talking on a cellphone violation which cost me about $100 and did not get sent to my insurance company. He charged $500 which was about the cost of the ticket but saved me money when insurance and having a neg 2 charge on my permanent record were considered. He was great to work with, a very friendly guy and very knowledgeable.

Paul was very knowledgeable about the legal process and my options. For a reasonable price, he did as he said he'd do, and I won my DUI case. I'd highly recommend him to others.

I received a DUI back in May 2013 and new I faced harsh penalties from the State as well as my employer. In fact, I was worried this would cost my job. Paul Hanson came strongly recommended by my treatment facility. We met, he explained everything to me and spelled out my options. After speaking with him I was convinced that entering a deferred prosecution plea was the route for me. He handled all my paperwork, told me what I needed to know when going to court, what the probable outcomes were, and was by my side the entire time. His rates were very reasonable and he took phone calls from me, answering my questions, without sending me an additional bill. I will openly admit that I'm a law enforcement officer from the Puget Sound region. I have a long history in law enforcement and have done numerous DUI's myself. I was scared now that I was on this side of the law. He was exactly the attorney I needed. I will definitely recommend him to anyone. Thank you Paul!
