Best lawyer in Tucson!
Alec is amazing! He helped me, kept me informed, and was super nice! He made such a stressful situation I was in so much easier and lifted so much weight off my shoulders. Thanks Alec!

Excellent lawyer and will work hard for your case
I asked Alec Hanus to review my charges for reckless driving and criminal speeding of 110 in a 75. After talking with Alec, I decided to hire him in which he walked me through every step of the legal process and answered any and every question I had. It felt like he was working just for me even though I knew he had many other clients at the time. I was very happy with the result that he was able to provide with his services. I would recommend Alec to anyone that is seeking legal services with traffic infractions.

Excellent Representation
Alec was able to get my racing/speeding ticket initially reduced to criminal speed and then get it dismissed entirely by going to Defensive Driving School. A small price to pay for what could have been a much bigger issue. He was forth wright and straight to the point and explained what he was trying to do and then was able to to do it. I had looked around and he seemed to be a good fit for my case. After meeting him, I hired him as he knew the people involved and had good relationships with them. I would recommend him to others for vehicular issues.

Great lawyer for speeding
I am a student from California and was charged with criminal speeding at 101 MPH near Nogales. Alec is professional and helped to get it dismissed. Everything went smooth and as expected. He is providing top-notch service at one of the lowest prices!

Great Lawyer
Mr. Hanus is honest, knowledgeable, caring and will fight hard for your case. He is very professional and stays true to his word. He was my attorney and fought for me tooth and nail. I have no negative words about him. He is a man of true integrity. I have dealt with lawyers in the pass and Mr. Hanus is one of the best. If you are looking for great representation from a good person then contact Mr. Hanus. Be honest, tell the truth about your case and he will provide you with a honest and reasonable solution.

Very Informative and Did Not Charge Me
Alec assisted me with gratitude and intuition. He listed my available options for my case and provided step by step with what I should do to help me in my situation. The law office was very professional as was Alec, I thank him for his aid and not charging me. Overall excellent attorney and highly recommend seeing him for law troubles.

Second DUI
This was my first time ever hiring an attorney and It was the best decision I could've made.. Alec is an AMAZING attorney but more importantly a wonderful human being. He works endlessly to get you the best outcome and cares about his clients. I hired Alec to represent me for my second DUI case and I am forever grateful. I got sentenced to 90 days in prison but Alec found a way to get me ONE day in jail and the rest in home detention.

Excellent lawyer
I had a warrant from 2007 because I had not taken some classes in order to fulfill my sentence and completely forgot about them as I was moving across the country. I called Alec the day I discovered I had the warrant (I now live on the East Coast) and Alec was not only friendly, he really listened, told me all of my options, and was just refreshingly honest, not just a lawyer looking for business. He had the warrant quashed within two days and in addition, I do not have to take the classes now. I would recommend Alec to any of my friends still in Arizona and I would hire him again in a heartbeat.

I got an honest answer over the phone
Spoke to Alec over the phone about a speeding ticket. He spoke honestly about the best options in my case. I felt like he was sincerely trying to help me and not just get an easy client.

I wouldn’t go to anyone else! Best Lawyer !
Alec was the best lawyer I have ever hired. He was quick and responsive, very respectful, and sensitive to my situation. I had a outstanding ticket in AZ and I lived in California, when I was getting ready to move I checked my driving record for my job and I had forgotten about a ticket I had gotten years ago. They were trying to charge me with a criminal ticket for driving on a suspended license and speeding which my license I didn’t even know it was suspended until I had been pulled over. To make a long story short Alec should be a magician he made it disappear within a month or so. I will never go to anyone else if there ever is another hiccup hopefully not but if so he is on top of it!!!!! I highly recommend him to everyone and anyone looking for help! Do not go anywhere else.

Highly recommended
Mr Hanus is a skilled attorney who works hard for his clients, and truly cares about them. I hired him last year to quash two warrants from 2007. Alec not only quashed the two warrants, but got both charges dropped. He worked hard to deliver the best possible outcome, and was a real life saver. I highly recommend Mr. Hanus to anyone in need of an attorney.

Best in the business
Alec is one of a kind. He’s a real pioneer in his career field. He’s personable, understandable and honest. I believe his reputation really speaks for itself. He’s had my life in his hands once or twice, and I would trust him with it again in a heartbeat. Thank you Alec, for those in need of a lawyer he is your guy.

Detailed & Informative Consultation
My mother was facing a criminal speeding ticket and we were looking for Lawyers to represent her. We saw that Mr. Alec Hanus was very highly rated. We talked to multiple lawyers to find one that fit our needs. Mr. Hanus was the only one who took the time to really talk to me, hear the details about the case and give detailed answers to the questions I was asking. He seemed very knowledgeable about the specific court we would have to appear at. He was also fairly priced. Our first pick was Mr. Hanus, but we ended up choosing someone who was closer to us geographically. If in the future if anyone I know needs any legal advice in the Tucson Area, I will be pointing them towards Alec Hanus.

Amazing lawyer
Alex Hanus is an all around incredible lawyer. I went to him when I was wrongfully charged with 3 misdemeanors by my own family when I was only 18 years old . I was almost certain the court would rule in their favor for they were way older than me, and every case I had seen before the older individual's are successful even if they are in the wrong. But Alec helped me through this past year trying everything he could to help me out of this horrible situation. He constantly reassured me that we would find the best path to go down and so that ended in going to trial. In which he fought for me and won dropping all the wrongfully misdemenor I had against me. Thank you Alec for all you did for me and my family we appreciate you greatly for helping us in our time of need.

Thank you Alec !!!
In my case, I was arrested in Jan of 2014, and the case was finalized 6 weeks ago, or approximately 3 years and 4 months after I was cited. Throughout this entire time Alec remained easy to reach, and up to date with all of the many nuances of the trial. I have little doubt that without Alec Hanus defending me, my case would have turned out much worse for myself, and I have no problem recommending Alec Hanus as a Lawyer a person can actually rely on.

Highly persistent for dismissal the case
Alec was extremely personable, easy to work with, very informative on the legal process, and made me feel like he was going to take care of everything. He always had time to answer my phone calls and has always promptly replied to my emails. Alec was always very patient with any questions I had and seemed to always know all the answers. He had my case in the Pima County Court dismissed after being persistent on getting that result for months, and he practically saved me. I couldn't be happier with his services and highly recommend that anybody considering a lawyer in the Tucson area give Alec a call.

First time speeding
I was pulled over for doing a 45 in a 35 zone in Tucson and I was extremely worried and confused about what to do now. I wasn't sure about my options and whether or not I should fight my ticket or just attend driving school and how my decision will have latent affects. That's why I contacted Alec. He addressed all my concerns methodically and guided me about my options very systematically while keeping a positive tone. He kept reassuring me that we will figure out the best course of action together and that he was here to help me through my situation. He handled my queries very professionally and guided me well. I'm extremely grateful that I found him via Avvo and that he was there for me during my stressful time.

Outstanding legal services rendered by Mr. Alec Hanus!!!
Mr. Alec Hanus, Tucson, AZ rendered superb service for me from a distance. While traveling through Tucson, I was pulled over and received a citation that would require me to appear in court. I immediately began to search the internet for a lawyer who could represent me in that area. I consulted with and hired Mr. Hanus and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. He and his staff were all always pleasant and available to address my concerns. In speaking with Mr. Hanus, he was able to put my mind at ease and reassure me that he would do everything in his power to ensure my case was handled properly. He did that and more! I've never even met him, but he was able to stand on his word and render services to me from afar. If you find yourself in a convoluted situation in the Tucson area, do yourself and your family a favor and consult with and hire Mr. Hanus. You won't be disappointed!

Straight Forward
Had a traffic ticket (following too closely) and tried another attorney first only to find out she wanted about $1,000 for my case. I talked to Mr. Hanus next and from the get-go he was painfully honest. No optimistic sunshine up the rear-end, he told me exactly what his plan was and ways the case could wind up, all possibilities and some strategies he uses. His price was very reasonable as well. The officer failed to appear, so somewhat of an easy win- but I'd definitely recommend him.
