A Criminal Defense Law Firm that is Dedicated to Defending your Rights!

Hanna & Ruud, LLC is a Criminal Defense Law Firm, and we love what we do. It’s who we are. As a legal defense team working side by side, we aspire to achieve the best possible result for our clients.

Our goal is simple – through hard work, and in-depth analysis into each case – provide our clients with the best result possible. We work hard to provide our clients with an honest assessment of their case. Our Law Firm takes pride in finding solutions that are investigative and informative. When our firm starts your case, the furthest thing from mind is a guilty plea – we defend our clients with the belief that they are innocent until proven guilty, and maintaDUI Lawyerin that until end result.

Our Criminal Defense law firm takes a modern approach to each case, while staying true to classic methods of advocating for our clients. While other Attorneys spend a fortune on fancy cars and décor for their office, in the hopes to appear successful, our firm reinvests into cutting-edge technology and software, attending criminal defense seminars frequently, monitoring recent State and Supreme Court decisions to see if they apply to our current cases, working with forensic experts in the Criminal Defense Field (including: Doctors, former Police Officers, Chemists, and other attorneys across the nation), as well as having an extensive legal library in office. Our Criminal and DUI Defense Attorneys have also taken the same required courses law enforcement has to be certified in performing Standard Field Sobriety Tests, and other courses required for law enforcement in Driving Under the Influence (DUI/OWI/DWI) investigations. Our theory is, “if we know how to do it right, we can spot when they are doing it wrong.” By rethinking DUI and Criminal Defense, we strive to provide the best possible result through dedication, knowledge, and advocacy for our clients. We exist because we believe in quality representation, and working hard for every client that walks through our door.
