I would highly recommend this firm as they went above and beyond for what I hired them for. (Old felony sealing case)The one thing I found to be true from other reviews is the response time isn't the greatest, but in all honesty I was just patient and trusted them to do what they do and in the end I am extremely satisfied with their service.Other than that I would not take the negative reviews to heart as I can attest from personal experience that they do a great job!Thanks again!

John, Steve and Rebecca are hands down the best DUI attorneys and I’m am forever grateful to have chosen them to represent me. They turned what I believed to be an impossible situation into an amazing outcome. They were there 100% of the time when I had questions or concerns. Chris in the office was amazing as well. During this process I never felt left in the dark. They made sure I was fully involved in each step of the process. I truly felt like they cared about my situation and fought for me till the end. If you want hope In a hopeless situation call them you won’t regret it. I can’t thank them enough for the peace they have given me.

I could not believe the result that we got with Hanna and Ruud. I should've gone to jail and lost my drivers license. Somehow they were able to keep me out of jail and keep my license and keep my life! I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for professional experienced lawyers. There staff was equally equipped and informative. Five stars are not enough!

I had a traffic accident and was very worried that my insurance was going to be raised. I went to Hanna and Ruud and they were able to have the ticket dismissed and expunged so that it did not affect my insurance or my driving record. I highly recommend them to anyone.
