I called Paul Hansons office regarding vacating a long past misdeamenor conviction. Mr Hanson was so pleasant to talk with. He took the time on the phone to explain this particular part of Washington state law. I would certainly recommend Paul Hanson if you find yourself in a similar situation.

I am so thankful for Paul and all of his help. Since the first phone call, I made to him, he answered the phone everytime and calmly and kindly answered all my questions. He is knowledgeable about the law and was very thorough in letting me know about what I needed to be aware of, in my case. He walked me through it all and was very considerate of my stress levels and situation.

I am so grateful for Paul. He has helped me so much. He was very helpful and dealt with everything for me. This was a very stressful time for me and he helped with that by winning my DOL hearing. I didn’t have much hope for winning due to all of the factors in my case and I was very shocked to find out we won it. A huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders thanks to Paul. He messaged me as soon as he found out we had won it. He always responds quick and does a great job. I definitely recommend him.


Posted by C.G., August 30, 2022

Paul Hanson is not your average attorney. He is caring and completely confident in his ability to provide the best legal advice. He goes beyond that and offers advice for the client that can be life changing. His 39 years of experience have shown him the good that can come out of some of these very difficult situations. He suggests some soul searching so that the best outcome can be attained.
I finally got the help that was needed thanks to his very wise advice. It’s essential that the client follow his advice and to do this promptly. He is.clear that those who put off the work have a much harder time in the long run. I recommend this attorney without hesitation.

Attorney Paul Hanson is a TOP NOTCH attorney. I chose him based on reviews I read online and I am so thankful I did. He helped me through one of the most difficult times in my life. Paul listened, guided me and explained everything I needed to do to help my case. I completed everything he recommended me to do. He got my high DUI charge reduced to a charge of reckless driving. I can not say enough good things about Attorney Paul Hanson! He is kind, knowledgeable, understanding, and at no time did I ever feel judged for my mistake. Lesson learned! His rate was also very reasonable. Call Attorney Paul Hanson. You will be glad you did. Thank you for everything and take care, Paul.

I called Paul on Sunday and he answered the phone and we immediately set up the one hour free consulting meeting next day with my first ever DUI case. Definitely, he is a very knowledgeable and professional attorney. He has earned all of my trust on how to prepare the case. Immediately, I decided to have him as my attorney to help to defense my case. Truthfully and simply, I just followed up his instructions to prepare the materials and execute the necessary works for my case. Less than 3 months, my DUI case was reduced to Negligent Drive 1°. The attorney fee is also quite reasonable in my opinion. I couldn't get all of these done without Paul's expertise. He went above and beyond for my case. You will not regret selecting Paul Hanson as your attorney!!!


Posted by Cheri Fields, June 27, 2022

Paul Hanson is an excellent attorney. He is very knowledgeable and is always great helping me with questions about my case. He made sure everything I did was correct the first time. I learned more about court in the last month than I ever knew about in textbooks. If I ever need an attorney in the future I will definitely choose Paul. I appreciate everything Paul has done for me and in the past as well. Good Luck in your future!!


Posted by Kerchelle, June 14, 2022

Paul turned my nightmares into smiles! I had been on warrant status for almost 4 years facing 60 days or more in jail and Paul got me the best deal I could have walked away with. 30 days house arrest and case closed after being open for 5 years. He also helped me complete treatment and get my license back.


Posted by Daniel, December 14, 2021

Mr. Paul Hanson was a consummate professional! He was extremely upfront about the repercussions of my particular case. The aforementioned barrister is extremely knowledgeable about criminal defense. He even had my case completely dismissed. Very fair and reasonable pricing. He is semi-retired, thus leading to more dedication to your specific case charge. You will not be disappointed with his services. I was extremely pleased and quite frankly, pleasantly surprised by Paul going above and beyond. If you’d like further detail, you may even email me!


Posted by anonymous, November 5, 2021

Professional, Knowledgeable, affordable, caring, patient and kind. I am absolutely pleased with choosing Mr. Hansen for my DUI case! My DUI case was reduced to Reckless Driving because of his hard work and advice. If you are looking for a great attorney with great personality, he is your best choice.


Posted by anonymous, October 3, 2021

Paul Hanson was able to do what we thought could not be done! I was charged with a DUI but walked away with a Negligent Driving 2 traffic infraction without a hearing. He made this process easy and not stressful. At the end of the day I didn't have a hearing and paid the infraction fee. Thank you for your hard work and making this as easy as possible for me.


Posted by Jesse, September 2021

Atty Paul Hanson was highly recommended to me and I am so glad I took the advice. He turned a very stressful situation for me in to a very smooth process.

I am extremely happy with the outcome of my case and wouldn't hesitate to call Mr. Hanson if I ever needed to again.

Mr. Hansen is well informed with the information not only on how to handle my case but also with what steps are to be taken to get the fairest possible deal in my case. He's never shy to tell you what could happen and that nothing is a guarantee. Up front and honest about the whole process. Definitely would recommend him in the South Snohomish County District.


Posted by anonymous, February 2, 2021

Paul was my saving grace in a very stressful situation. Because of his expertise, hard work and compassionate support, Paul was able to guide me through an overwhelming court system.


Posted by Tiffany, January 2021

Attorney Hanson was extremely successful and helped us settle our property damage tort claim with a large construction company. Without his help I do not think we would have been successful in our settlement. He was professional, timely in response, and available whenever we needed assistance.

Paul Hanson is the lawyer you need if you are charged with a DUI. He's experienced, knows how to navigate the legal system, and will get you the best outcome. But more than that, he'll look at your personal situation, and make recommendation to get you free of your addiction. That's what he did for me. I had a drinking problem, got into legal hot water because of it. In our initial meeting, he asked me a lot of important questions about my drinking. Thanks to him, I came to the conclusion that I did have a problem. He guided me not only through the legal issues, but also to get help for my addiction. Mt. Hanson is not only focused on helping his clients to deal with legalities, he also helps his clients resolve their addictions. I so recommend him. Jim T.


Posted by Dennis, November 20, 2020

Paul did great job with my case. Did absolutely amazing job to defend my case. He became my family lawyer from now on.


Posted by Chris, November 2020

I hired Paul Hanson to represent me with a complicated DUI case where I had a lot of random past issues working against me even with it being my first DUI and it being a low blow case. Paul gave me a list of things to do over a period of time still not knowing if it would matter having my case getting dropped down to a reckless driving. My case got wrapped up last week and he made it happen for me and I’m so grateful. My advice to anyone seeing council and you hire Mr Hanson listen to him and do what he ask of you and let him take care of the rest. He’s a good man, One note was I was referred to him as well and he was affordable and half the price especially during the pandemic going on and money was a issue for me. He moved my case at the pace it needed to get good results.


Posted by Luke, October 24, 2019

Paul Hanson is a fantastic attorney. He explains everything thoroughly, he really knows the system, and he’s honest and upfront. Paul is affordable and really worth every penny.

Posted by Mayra, July 16, 2019

Attorney Paul Hanson is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He knows exactly what he is doing. When others gave me little or no hope, Mr Hanson let me know that even though my case would be difficult, it was not impossible. He was right! He was able to reduce my DUI down to a negligent driving 1*. I recommend him to anyone and everyone.


Posted by Brianne, February 2019

Paul was a delight to work with, very knowledgeable and explains everything so that anyone can understand. I am not very good with law/court etc. And felt very good and confident the whole way through my defered prosecution process. I would highly recommend him!


Posted by Matthew, December 2018

Paul is a very professional, affordable Dui specialty lawyer. Paul has helped me with two separate cases now, and both are able to get me the most favorable outcomes. Very sincere counsel. Once you have an experienced attorney on your side, the anxiety of the case is relieved. Paul is very good at explaining situations to clients to the point that they fully understand the possible outcomes. I plan on using Paul in any future legal troubles and is highly recommended to anyone who needs legal advice/counsel.


Posted by Dave, July 2018

Paul was everything I expected of a professional attorney. He effectively communicates your legal options and does not over promise your possible result. Paul promptly returned all my requests for additional legal advise. Paul helped to greatly minimize the stress related to my DUI arrest and handled the numerous legal requirements. You can trust Paul to provide the best legal services in King/Snohomish counties.


Posted by Wayne, June 2018

If you want peace of mind after your DUI contact Paul. I had the unfortunate case of being arrested for a DUI. I am 50 and never had any record of any legal issues. It occurred over the weekend and my court date was on Monday. I was crushed and anxious. I searched through the web and read many reviews. I called a several, but Paul was the most reassuring and calm. I decided to go with him. I was glad I did. Every person I communicated with from the Bothell court house to treatment centers to interlock companies, knew his name and spoke very highly of him. I felt assured every step of the way that I made the right choice. He definitely looks at your case as a unique case and gives the best suggestion for you; not just a cookie cutter response. I successfully got a DP judgement and happy with the out come. Thanks Paul!!


Posted by Brandon, September 7, 2017

Paul Was kind, compassionate and always on his game. He walked me every step of the way through my DUI deferred prosecution. Things could'nt gone any better!!!! This guy knows his stuff, I would recommend hi to anyone, anytime.

Posted by Brad, May 2017
I contacted five different law offices with legal questions and Paul Hanson was the only lawyer that returned my call. Where I needed assistance wasn't his main practice but he was able to refer me to some body who could help in my situation. I would recommend and would use Paul Hanson in the future for the simple fact that he is willing to take the time to help even when nobody else will. Kudos to you Mr. Hanson, your a better man than most.

Posted by John, January 12, 2017
I have never had the pleasure of meeting an attorney that stays on point and finishes the deal. Paul went above and beyond what i expected. You will not be disappointed with his knowledge of the law and the court system.........

Posted by "Peace", December 2016
In November 2011 I found myself in need of the legal services of an attorney. A friend of mine who is a judge, gave me Paul Hansen’s name along with two others. I contacted Paul after talking with the other two, and found him more responsive and personable. Paul handled my case with professionalism and efficiency. I was very happy with the support and compassion he displayed throughout this troublesome period. I recommend anyone who finds themselves in need of legal services to contact Paul.

Posted by "Anonymous", October 2016
I got couple of speeding tickets and a friend of mine advised to at least consult a attorney, even if you plan to pay them. I wasn't sure what my options were and how I could retain my otherwise clean record. Paul was extremely nice, helpful and gave me valuable advise and options; I ended up hiring Paul and I got the result I wanted. Paul took over and made the experience smooth and stress free and yes he returned all my calls!

Posted by Cosmin, August 2016
Just want to let know my appreciation over Mr. Hanson work. My case was assault 4th degree and DV. He did a great job working closely with prosecution office and I had the opportunity to deferred prosecution. My case closed today 08/04/2016. I much appreciate Mr. Hanson help reviewing my case, explaining me my option that I have.
Thank again for your help

Posted by Jared, August 2016
Excellent experience and very professional to work with...he knows the system and is up-front about all the potential outcomes. I've worked in law firms for many years and I have a very busy work schedule, so I appreciate that he just took care of business and followed up with me as the case progressed until its resolution. Thank you! - Jared (Lynnwood, WA)

Posted by Lindsay, July 2016

Paul is an excellent lawyer and takes his time and effort in everything he does. He explains everything in terms you understand and gives great advice! He even gave me a 2 hour consult BEFORE I hired him on a SATURDAY because my schedule was so tight. His rates are extremely reasonable and I trusted him 100% the entire experience.

Posted by "a client", June 2016.
Paul is very experienced in the DUI space and the associated legal processes. He knows exactly how the process works and guides you step by step all the way. My recommendation is to do exactly as he recommends and complete all the steps asked of you - ahead of time. If you do, you will be in a much better position and any court case will end up more favorable. I ended up with a Reckless Driving for something that could have been a lot more severe. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone in a DUI situation - he was very thorough, even visiting the scene of the arrest with me and re-tracing the steps of the night.

Posted by Ronald, April 2016
Unbelievable person, compassionate, kind, understanding and smart as a whip. This man knows his law. We were referred to him by a really good attorney in Bellingham, Wa. who couldn't take our case. No longer dealing in the offence. He, Mr. Joe Bartek was 100% right about Mr. Hanson, He finished with our case on the 2nd court appearance. He is extremely thorough and precise. Explains everything very clearly. He's a happy person and it shows, great smile. To be honest my husband and I miss seeing him but not under court circumstances but HIGHLY recommend him. Do yourself a favor, make your life problems as we all have at times, easier. call him now if you need the best legal advice. You'll agree, excellent . Thank you Mr. Paul Hanson. Ron and Jackie.

Posted by "a client", February 2016
Paul is very friendly and helped me get a hit-and-run completely dismissed. I would highly recommend him. He has a lot of experience and very knowledgeable in the legal field.

Posted by Michelle, December 2015
Attorney Paul Hanson was referred to me by a good friend of mine after I had landed myself my first adult DUI after being on probation for a minor DUI that was a little over a year prior to this case. I feared that the worst was going to happen to me, until I had my initial consultation with Paul and he made me feel instantly at ease and dedicated over 2 hours of his time to explain to me what my options were and carefully explained every little detail of each process as well as gathering as much information regarding my recent and past case. I went ahead and decided to go in the route of a Deferred Prosecution and with the help of Paul, he made the process as smooth as it possibly go by walking me through each step to get me to where I needed to be in order to get me the best deal possible. On my final court date, the judge granted me my Deferred Prosecution with a smile and without any hesitation! I can't thank Paul enough for all of his hard work and dedication. I would highly recommend him, hands down.

Posted by Chris, September 2015
Whatever he tells you will help your case, do it. Don't put it off, make it your priority. Meet with someone? Do it. Start going to support groups? It's in your best interest. Eat Victoria sponge cake? Trust him, he's telling you for a reason that will help your case.

I did exactly as he suggested and everything turned out fantastic. Better than I could have reasonably hoped for.

Posted by Selam, July 2015
Attorney Paul Hanson is a wonderful lawyer. He listens and understands situations very well. Provides excellent clarification of unique situations in a simple manner. He walks me through my legal issues step by step. It was helpful on every step of the way.
I had a car accident situation. I was hurt and needed medical attention for few years. He took my case and did a consistent follow up till I settled the expenses for my medical bills, work compensation and pain and suffering reimbursement.
I highly recommend. He is very nice, knowledgeable, respectful, punctual, non-judgmental and available at any time.

Posted by Jason, June 2015
Paul is great to work with.I chose him because I thought he would have a good repore with the Judge and prosecutors. He did. He told me he would proceed any way I wanted to. You don't hear that to often. We followed his advise, which led to a dismissal of both my charges. His office is high end, easy to get to, and lots of parking. His prices are a bit lower than you would expect.
I don't plan on being back in the court system, but if I do. I will definetly have Paul at my side.

Posted by A Client, June 2015
Paul handled my speeding ticket several years ago, so when I was rear ended last fall with both of my kids in the car he was the first attorney I thought of to go to. After months of doctor, chiropractic and massage appointments I was ready to settle and be done with this. Paul was very helpful and kept me informed during the entire process. He was able to get me and my kids several thousand dollars more than I had even hoped for!! I am very happy I used Paul.

Posted by JS, January 2015
Paul handled my assault 4 case very well and ended up in a dismissal. He is very knowledgeable, caring, and trustworthy person. If you want a good and responsive attorney, call Hanson. He even helped me get this history expunged from my record.

Posted by K.B. July 2013
I hired Paul for a DUI case that was almost 5 years old. He answered all my phone calls, kept me informed on every detail regarding the case. I felt confident in Paul's ability and he gave me a list of tasks that I needed to complete to ensure I would receive the best deal possible. I had a high BAC and speed was also a factor in the charges against me. Long story short, DUI was lowered to a lesser charge and I couldn't be happier. Thanks Paul.

Posted by R.L., May 15, 2013
I needed Attorney Hanson's legal expertise to resolve a long standing court docket expunging and was completely satisfied with his services and the matter was quickly resolved. For the best legal advise and representation, see Paul Hanson, Attorney at Law.

Posted by “Car Accident client”,  2013
I contacted Paul, along with several other attorneys, for a hit and run unattended charge. Paul was less expensive then the rest, and seemed more knowledgable. I hired him, and he explained my options, and possible outcomes. We proceded down a path that led to a dismissal of the charge. I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Paul is a very good attorney, he knows the law and will help you out of your misstep.

Posted by “Speeding Ticket client”, 2012
I had a speeding ticket that I felt was unfair. Called Paul he explained what the procedure and costs would be. Told me what the up and downsides were. Estimated what my chances were to have it reduced or possibly dismissed. Called and kept me informed. He got it dismissed. Reasonable price, great service and got the job done.
Hope I do not need him again, but if I did would look forward to working with him.

Posted by Melanie in 2012
Mr. Hanson handled my injury case after I was involved in a severe automobile accident. Not only did he advise me with regards to all of my doctor and chiropractor appointments, but he and his paralegals handled all of the billing issues once I had recovered. He puts your well-being ahead of his own and makes sure you're taken care of in every single respect.
He handles his cases ethically, in the most professional manner and does a wonderful job of reassuring you that everything will be ok. I would recommend him to anyone who has been involved in an automobile accident.

Posted by Debbie in 2012
Mr Hanson represented me after a serious auto accident in 2004. No matter how bad my days were while going through my recovery, he was always supportive and encouraging, and reached out to me on countless occasions, just to see how I was doing. He and his paralegal team are topnotch; he advised me early about what I could to to help my case, and did not press for the final settlement until I was clearly healed and moving ahead with my life, over 2 years after the incident. I have referred him to family as well, and he has proven to be as worthy of my recommendations as he was with my own case. Thank goodness for attorneys like Paul! I am referring a dear friend to him now for a similar situation, and am fully confident that he will put their best interests ahead of his own.

Posted by Lindsay in 2009
This was my first ticket and he was great! he was very honest, kept me informed and explained the entire process. I was referred to him by two other people.

Posted Dianna in 2009
Paul was great to work with! His aim for the case was about getting the most money of the settlement back into my pocket. Being a student, I have very little income. Paul took the time to negotiate for several days with insurance companies to get them to reduce the pay back amount. I appreciated that he was very prompt with all paper work and gave very clear advice and instructions for what my responsibilities of the case were. His office staff was also very helpful and friendly, which was a change from the last law office I called. Overall, it was a great experience and I would use him again for another case.

Posted by DUI Client in 2007
Paul really helped me out with my DUI. I would reccomend him to anyone who needs a DUI attorney!
