Michael Hanna - is truly for the people.
Michael Hanna was patient , informative and really got me the best settlement for my case. I definitely recommend anyone looking for great representation to have him on their side. He made sure all aspects of the case were covered. He works quick and efficiently. I couldn't ask for a better Counsil in my case. Justice was served.

Great lawyer
Mr. Hanna had been working on an interesting case for me and exceeded what I thought was possible for my case. He was extremely professional yet down to earth as well. I could talk to him like a person as well as professionally. Thank you for your work

Excellent Attorney
After Michael resolved my case I could not of imagined hiring any other attorney! A very good lawer who does not quit and is relentless in resolving your case. If you want a Trial Attorney and not a settler than this is your attorney.

Michael's AMAZING!!
Michael is hands down, the BEST lawyer you are ever going to get! He's personable, a great personality, and most importantly, is relentless in getting your case resolved. He is not letting the other party go without a fight! he never tired when pursuing my case, even though it took over a year. Just by the way he treated me, and conducted himself, I was more than willing to follow him to a different firm when he moved instead of continuing with his former one. He breaks issues down for you to understand as a client, and also keeps you abreast as to what is going on, what he is planning and what the different outcomes could be, which definitely put my mind at ease. If you're looking for a lawyer that's great to work with and get the job done, this is your guy
