Alec Hanus

Attorney at Law

A 1999 graduate of the University of Arizona College of Law, I have over 20 years of experience working with the legal system. I have served as a prosecutor and worked with a judge, giving me direct insight into how the other side thinks. This enables me to provide better representation for my clients. Before I became an attorney, I worked overseas as an English teacher and navigated the political landscape of Washington D.C. These experiences helped me hone my communication skills for working with clients. I strive to be straightforward and honest with every case, ensuring you are aware of what is happening during each step of the process.

Representation You Can Trust

Standing Up for Your Rights

The Constitution should always be upheld in a court of law, especially when it comes to the Bill of Rights. Our laws entitle you to many freedoms, such as the freedom of speech and the freedom from search and seizure. I fight to make sure your rights are protected.

Straightforward Communication

I provide my clients with no-nonsense, accurate information. It is important that you understand both the best- and worst-case scenarios for your situation. To prepare you for potential outcomes, I will lay out what the penalties of a conviction could look like and my plan for mitigating damages.

Advocating for You & Your Rights

Being charged with a crime is no small matter. It is essential that you speak with a criminal defense attorney right away. I will educate you on your constitutional rights and walk you through how we can defend your case. Over the past two decades, I have amassed a reputation for winning difficult cases and negotiating reduced penalties.

If you have been charged with a DUI, I will first discuss the case with you and then obtain disclosure. The disclosure includes relevant evidence and materials, including police reports, sobriety tests, blood alcohol content, and witness statements. I examine each detail for a valid point of dismissals, such as an improperly conducted traffic stop or a violation of your rights. If you are a student at the University of Arizona and charged with a Minor in Possession, reach out. Schedule a free consultation with me to see if your case could be dismissed in court.

Domestic violence, stalking, and physical assault charges regularly end in the defendant serving time in jail or prison. Having a criminal record can permanently impact your life, excluding you from future jobs and access to gun rights. Sometimes, after an argument, one side will report the altercation, and the police will charge one of the participating parties and hope the court sorts it out. I fight to protect the rights of the arrested party and make sure they are treated fairly.

Even if a case truly cannot be won, not all hope is lost. I have successfully negotiated hundreds of plea arguments, minimized or eliminated fines, jail time, and other penalties. If you live in Tucson, Arizona — or the neighboring areas of Pima, Santa Cruz, and Cochise counties, and are in need of a criminal defense lawyer, I am here to represent you.
