Mount Vernon Family Law and Bankruptcy Lawyers

Resolving Legal Problems as Effectively and Affordably as Possible

At the Law Offices of L. James Hanson in Mount Vernon, Illinois, we believe the practice of law is about helping people make sound, informed decisions and solve problems. It is about navigating legal processes successfully rather than allowing the pressures and systems involved to control you.

We apply this philosophy every working day as we address the concerns and goals of people who want to clear hurdles, make progress and get on with their lives. You can turn to us with confidence that we will make your mission our own and work hard to protect your interests.

Practical, Results-Focused Business Law, Real Estate and General Counsel

Some legal issues are isolated and specific, requiring knowledge of one area. If you need to complete a relatively straightforward divorce or real estate transaction, for example, direct knowledge and a commitment to efficiency in one legal area may be enough. However, life's challenges do not always fit neatly into compartments, and our broad perspective and experience in numerous areas of law are key assets for many of our clients.

Decades of Experience and Knowledge Across the Legal Spectrum

Led by a versatile Mount Vernon family law, bankruptcy and business attorney approaching 30 years in practice, our firm is a proven resource regardless of the complexity of your situation. We bring vision and commitment to real estate and business law concerns, estate planning and many other matters that affect our clients' lives in profound ways.

Attorney Jim Hanson can represent you at trial in any Southern Illinois court — or our professional team will work hard to resolve your challenge favorably outside the courtroom. We are skilled analysts and negotiators who will prioritize common sense, efficiency and results as we target the solutions that best serve your unique needs.
