Exceeded Expectations
The team at Lansing and Hannum has offered invaluable services and compassion to me over the last eight years. Whether it was a simple matter such as the handling of the deed to my home or a more complex child custody battle, the staff at Lansing and Hannum has truly proven their dedication to their clients. Mr. Hannum was available whenever I had concerns about my case, and put my fears to rest immediately. Furthermore I was always kept up to date on my matters; whether it was a motion being filed or a phone conference with the opposing attorney I was always promptly informed. Finally Mr. Hannum ensured that I had a comprehensive understanding on what was going on in my case, sometimes explaining certain aspects multiple times in order to ensure I grasped the legal concepts being discussed. I truly feel that Mr. Hannum is one of the most dedicated attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of working with. I will continue to use Mr. Hannum in any future matters I may have, and will continue to refer anyone seeking legal counsel directly to him.

Custody Dispute Resolved
I would like to thank everyone involved in my child custody matter at Lansing and Hannum for the effort put into my case along with the moral support provided during this tumultuous time in my life. Not only did Mr. Hannum resolve the matter that threatened both my son and I but he also handled my case with a sense of compassion and understanding that I have never seen from any other attorney. For example, whenever an emergency would come up and I needed to talk to someone on how to handle it, Mr. Hannum was on the phone with me walking me through the steps on how to resolve the situation. Both he and his staff gave their due diligence to my case, and provided me with a sense of peace and security. I would not hesitate to refer others seeking legal counsel to Mr. Hannum, I have already sent many of my friends and family members to him and plan to continuing to do so in the future. Thank you again Mr. Hannum for everything you have done.

More than my family expected
I want to thank Eric Hannum for representing my daughter. When I first reached out to Eric and explained my daughter's situation, he immediately put me at ease. Eric initially provided advice that helped us deal with things properly and this was very important to us. We scheduled a meeting at his offices and we were instantly impressed by his professionalism and knowledge. Eric is extremely insightful and strategic. His demeanor and personality enabled us to trust him and feel confident things would work out. Eric Hannum exercised great judgment and integrity and we would highly recommend Eric to any of our dear friends or family.

Highly Recommend
I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Hannum on a family matter which proved to be more difficult than most. Mr. Hannum was able to successfully guide his client into accepting a mutually acceptable agreement despite a highly charged emotional setting. He was able to mediate the matter, thereby saving his client excessive legal fees, because of his in depth knowledge of the law as well as his skills in dealing with people facing stressful and emotional situations. As an attorney with over 18 years of experience dealing with matrimonial matters I know that a successful and positive outcome for both the clients and the attorneys depends on the skill and character of the attorneys representing the parties involved. Mr. Hannum is one of the most professional, intelligent and courteous lawyers I have ever worked with. I have recommended Mr. Hannum to a number of people needing his expertise and would not hesitate to recommend him in the future. A party in need of excellent representation would be in good hands in retaining a professional and highly competent attorney like Eric Hannum.

When it became necessary to have legal counsel in what started out as a pro se divorce, I chose Eric Hannum of Lansing & Hannum, LLC. He truly seemed to understand the dynamics of the matter and understood the financial constraints I was under. While there was not a lot of property to fight over, there were matters that needed to be addressed and I could no longer deal with my estranged spouse as the process went along. Mr. Hannum really made it easy for the process to move along and kept me focused on the ultimate outcome. He and his staff are knowledgeable, friendly and accessible.

Thank you so much for your professional expertise regarding my divorce and child custody issue. I was extremely satisfied with the services rendered on my behalf, as well as the work done by your office staff. All of my phone calls were answered or immediately returned back. When I met with you for my consultation, you told me not to worry and that you had my best interests at hand and you did exactly that. You worked with me on a personal level to help me resolve my case, which was causing me so much stress and heartache. Your professional assistance provided me invaluable support at such an exceptional cost. I am extremely pleased with everything you did for me and my daughter. With that said, thank you so much. I am truly grateful. I will recommend you to friends and family members as well and anyone else I meet in need of legal assistance.
