Mr. Hanrahan handled my case from cradle to grave. You never know when the unexpected might occur. In my case, the unexpected occurred and Mr. Hanrahan was aggressive and stayed on top of the issues. He may be a little slow to respond to your emails from time to time, but keep in mind...good lawyers stay busy and it is all about the END result. If you want a dependable, honest, and reliable lawyer that can deliver, then call Mr. Hanrahan.

John offered excellent professional service to me throughout my entire experience. What I thought would be a trying and confusing time ended up being completed with relative ease. Mr. Hanrahan took my issues very personally and practically held my hand all the way to the trial, where we won my case. I can't express enough gratitude for the demeanor with which he cared for my needs and delivered his promises.
