  • I am very grateful for Mr. Hanle.

    “I am very appreciative of Mr. Hanle and I know he will do what’s best for [my family member]. When I first saw him, I knew he was like the old-school lawyers – well-dressed, well-groomed, good at what he does, but still modest. I am very grateful for him.”
