Very giving with his time, even if there's no money in it for him.
Hahn recognized immediately there was little hope for me to press my case in court for a better settlement with the insurance company, and took time to explain the situation thoroughly, offering what advice he could for how I may proceed on my own, answering my questions even though there was no money in it for him.
Media portrayals have made personal injury lawyers into cartoons, and the process of receiving a just settlement into greedily clawing for dollars. Erase those images from your head. Hahn is a decent human being, in addition to being the guy who will be working for you. If the stigma of seeking a better settlement makes you feel uncomfortable, he's a guy who can make that process feel like the just and reasonable action it is. And that's important.
It was to me, anyway, and even though my case had too much stacked against it, he did his level best to soften the blow, explain the options, and offer the best way forward. All for nothing, except perhaps the satisfaction of helping, though what that means to him is for him to say.
Despite being unable to help me in a court, I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a qualified lawyer who can make the process a more comfortable experience. It means something for me to understand the options, and feel I'm doing the right thing, and Hahn made sure both happened, and more.

I'm glad I could help, but I wish I could have helped more.
