Ron L. Hanna did an amazing job helping me with my legal situation. Not only was he able to answer all my questions and give me advice, he was very reliable and easy to get a hold of. He is a very genuine individual. I feel that he defended me as if he were defending himself. He was also very knowledgeable and up to date on all of the new laws. He completed everything in a very timely manor. His office staff always reminded me of upcoming scheduled court dates well in advance. A family member recommended Ron to me, and his help was definitely money well spent. I have already recommended him to friends and family members both, two which in fact recently sought out representation from him. With no hesitation, I give Ron L. Hanna five stars! If anyone is in need of legal advice or representation, he would be my first choice!

I now light heartily refer to Ron as 'My Cousin Vinny' after he more than successfully served as my counsel in my recent dui / accident episode. Ron was suggested to me by a lawyer friend of mine describing Ron as a "rising star" in the world of lawyers. And in my opinion that is a fact.
This was my second offense and I was looking at the possibility of a felony, a revoked license, and jail or even time spent in prison. Some of my charges were thrown out of court and instead of a felony and revocation I ended up with a Class A misdemeanor and a six month license suspension for 'reckless driving' instead of a dui thanks to Ron's knowledge of the law and his coyness in handling my case. I received a BAIID permit to drive until my license arrives in the mail in six months and it's all because of the great work that Ron performed while representing me as my counsel. He's the best.

I have know Mr. Hanna for almost 10 years. In my many years as a DUI prosecutor, I had the opportunity to see him in action on many cases. His knowledge of DUI and traffic law is second to none, and his ability to advocate on behalf of his clients to obtain the best deal possible for them is outstanding. I wholeheartedly recommend Mr. Hanna.
