On the flip side of the coin, Rob is an energetic competitor and he, along with every member of his team, loves fighting the good fight.

Our Approach to Defending Clients Against Serious Violent Crime Charges

Every defendant is innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt, and it’s our job to protect your rights and your freedom. We are all human, and even if we make a mistake, it’s not necessary to ruin that person’s life. The team at Hanauer Law uses our individual and collective experience, talent, and drive to win for our clients and to get the best outcome possible. Our approach involves:

  • Ensuring you understand the charges against you and what to expect in the process of going to court and fighting the charges.  We are honest and direct but take all the time you need to ensure you have a firm grasp of the situation.
  • Conducting our own thorough investigation of the situation, followed by an in-depth examination of the alleged evidence against you.  We look for any of the following, which could mean suppression of evidence or a dismissal of the charges against you:
    • No Miranda warning at the time of your arrest
    • No warrant was obtained
    • Illegal search and seizure
    • Evidence was tampered with
  • Developing a strong defense strategy which can involve important circumstances such as the defendant acting in self-defense or for the protection of another, exaggerated injuries, alibi, the involvement of drugs or alcohol, and more.

A misdemeanor conviction for a lesser assault, battery, violation of a domestic violence protective order, etc., may or may not include up to a year of jail time but usually includes fines (up to $2,500) and probation.
