A exceptional lawyer
Hannon Wright is not only a exceptional lawyer in my opinion but a good person. From day one he not only fought for me in every way possible but all the while keeping my goals and desires of first priority. He kept in great contact with me and my family answering and all questions we had. I would recommend Hannon Wright to any individual looking for legal help.

Trustworthy and hard working attorney!
I hired Hannon to handle my custody, visitation, and divorce. The case took almost 3 years to completely finalize. Hannon was extremely professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and kept me informed through the long process. I really could not have gotten through such a difficult time in my life without his guidance. During hearings Hannon was always well prepared. He did not get flustered by anything that came at him from the other side. He never raised his voice but was firm and always got hi point across. Hannon is definitely the best attorney in this area and I strongly recommend him for anyone I know seeking legal services!

Excellent Attorney!!!!
Mr. Wright was an amazing attorney who immediately took on our case. From start to finish, he handled my dads case with care and precision. He is very knowledgeable in his field and gave a lot of advice along the way. He was very responsive and attentive to all correspondences and never made us feel like we couldn’t reach out to him. He was amazing during every level of the proceedings and I couldn’t have asked for anything more. He took care of my family when we needed him and I would highly recommend him for all of your needs!

Highly Recommended
I am an Army veteran and I hired Hannon Wright to help me out with divorce related issues. His office staff was easy to communicate with and after being connected directly to the attorney he was understanding and direct to the point on what to do to help me. Hannon understands the mindset of the military veteran and it felt like calling a friend for advice moreso than my attorney. I highly recommend him on the basis of knowledge, customer service, communication and speed of service.

The right man to have in my corner
Mr. Wright helped me with my case last year and was able to get my sentence reduced. He was always timely when responding via email or over the phone. He answered every question I had and didn't just tell me what I wanted to hear. I got the outcome that I was hoping for thanks to his hard work. I needed his assistance again this year in asking for an extension for my community service and he wrote up a motion and was able to get it approved before we even had to go to court! I am very thankful for his help and I don't mean to be rude, but I hope I never have to use him again. If I do need an attorney in the future I will hire him again without any doubt.

I'm free!
Mr. Wright handled my divorce very professionally. He was up front and told me exactly what to expect, he didn't sugar coat anything. I felt he was fairly priced and got my divorce going in a very timely manner.

Easy Divorce
Very pleased with the whole process. Mr. Wright was very easy to work with and handled everything with little effort on my part. His front office clerk and notary is also an asset to the office! They made my divorce as quick and pleasant as possible, thankfully!

Definitely recommend
I recently hired Mr. Wright for a domestic court matter. He called me back personally the same day I had called to make an appointment & was able to meet with me for a consultation that same week. When I met with him I found him very knowlagble & easy to talk to. The court case ended up in my favor & I would defiantly recommend Mr. Wright to anyone who may be in need of a lawyer & I would use him again if I ever needed to.

Thorough and Prompt
We hired Mr. Wright to advise us in a landlord-tenant issue and to write a letter to our tenants on our behalf. He responded to our questions and concerns in a timely manner and was very knowledgable about VRLTA and our VA Common Law lease. We highly recommend Mr. Wright and will hire him again in the future should we need to.
