Steve was Johnny on the spot. He knew the law, the judges, and the prosecutors. The felony crime required a jail sentence if convicted, Steve somehow had the charges amended to a misdemeanor and got me probation for a mandatory jail case. it was worth every penny to keep a felony off my record and to stay out of prison. His office was courteous and he returned all calls the same day. i would not hire anyone but him if i were charged again.

I was facing jail time and thanks to Steve Hanna I didn't have to go. My fines were also dropped. Great attorney, and he always responded to my calls and answered all my questions. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

I had a DUI in Rock Island and Steve Hanna and Jon Ruud were very helpful. They helped understand the process, and the staff was able to answer many of my questions. In the end I did not lose my license and the charges were reduced. Price was totally worth it, I felt like I got two lawyers for the price of one!

Mr. Hanna had a good rapport with the judge and prosecutor, he was able to get me the best sentence possible. He made me feel comfortable and confident. Thank you again!

This guy is an arrogant jerk. Very disrespectful during discussion for consultation. Mr. Hanna hung up on me when I questioned his rude behavior.
David Franks, DUI and DWI Attorney
I met Attorney Steven Hanna three years ago while attending a national seminar on DUI defense. Since then, Attorney Hanna and I have attended several other national level criminal law and DUI defense seminars throughout the country. I was, and am, impressed with his focused commitment and energy in learning and mastering the scientific issues regarding the highly-complex field of DUI defense, as well as the trial skills necessary for strong advocacy. We consult with one another regarding various administrative, procedural and substantive law issues in connection with DUI defense. If you are facing a criminal defense or DUI defense issue in the Moline, Illinois area, Steve Hanna is the attorney to contact!
Jonathan Ruud, Criminal defense Attorney
Relationship: Worked for lawyer
I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Steve for the past three years and have found his knowledge of the law, trial skills, tactics, and general approach to criminal cases to be excellent. Sometimes cases are won through a vigorous defense. Sometimes they are won through skillfull negotiation. Steve knows which approach to employ, and when, to achieve the best results. The laws relating to criminal defense seem to change daily. Steve works very hard to keep up to date on the current state of the law by attending numerous cutting edge seminars on a wide variety of issues relating to criminal defense and DUI's. Having a frim grasp of the nuances between the law yesterday and the law today can mean the difference between a case being dismissed and a client going to prison. If I were to ever be in trouble with 'the law', I would want Steve Hanna in my corner.
