Will Hanlon knows Florida law inside out

As a native Floridian and criminal defense attorney, my family history in Tampa spans generations. Since being admitted to The Florida Bar almost 20 years ago, I founded Hanlon Law and have gained extensive legal experience in criminal courtrooms in and around Tampa and throughout Florida.

Compassionate and zealous representation

At Hanlon Law, I represent clients accused of a wide variety of criminal acts. From crimes as serious as homicide to minor traffic offenses, I work vigorously and efficiently to win a dismissal, a reduction in charges or an acquittal — all while providing attentive counsel to you and your family.

I defend clients throughout Florida. From my main criminal law office in Tampa, I aggressively defend against charges in Temple Terrace, Brandon, Riverview, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Gainesville, Sarasota, Bradenton, central Florida, the Panhandle and all surrounding areas.
