Patrick provided excellent insight and guidance into the traffic ticket adjudication process, equipping me with the verbiage needed to successfully get the ticket dismissed. He was very knowledgable, understanding, and re-assuring throughout the ordeal. Awesome job!! Thanks a ton Patrick!!!
Quote from the dismissal letter:
"Based on your statement and/or evidence or the government's failure to meet its burden of proof, the ticket was dismissed by a hearing examiner."


Shawn Gritz is an amazing lawyer. He listened to all of my concern when it came to this case. It was my first DUI/DWI and I was scared, anxious and confused. Shawn reviewed my case and I chose him based on the confidence he not only gave me back but the professional he adhered to from start to finish. I automatically knew he was the attorney I wanted to represent me. As you can imagine, we won the case and Shawn is my go to lawyer for life. I have full confidence in him and his power to beat any case that is presented to him. He works hard and that will be quite obvious once you hire him. Highly recommended.


Shawn was very helpful throughout my experience in the District Court. I was cited for failure to notify the owner of a parked car I damaged in a parking lot which required me to appear in court. Shawn described to me what I should expect to experience in the courtroom and how to pursue the least damaging resolution for me at trial. He was able to work with the prosecutor prior to trial to make an arrangement that was satisfactory to all parties. As it turned out with Shawn representing me I was able to meet my goal of avoiding serious damage to my driving record. Furthermore I want to emphasize that Shawn is very experienced in handling cases such as mine which is important for any prospective client to know.

Happy Client

I contacted Gritz, Hanifin, and Shih because I needed guidance. They returned my call immediately and scheduled an appointment to meet with me the following day. They were very polite and professional. I worked directly with Patrick Hanifin. He gave me all my options during our appointments and I never felt rushed when speaking to him. Prior to attending court, Mr. Hanifin shared with me what to expect. He did an amazing job representing me and making me feel comfortable during the entire length of the case. He promised a win and he delivered!

I have worked with Shawn in two cases so far.
He is not only a very professional person that knows exactly what to do on each type of case but also extremely informative and ALWAYS available.
He has also worked with a couple of friends I have referred to him and we all have only great things to talk about him.
Shawn always fights for your case until the end and also for the best possible outcome.
5 Starts for Him


I highly recommend the services of Shawn Gritz. He gave me a thorough briefing at the onset, knew the system inside-and-out and explained to me how the process would work, and likely outcomes. He kept me informed throughout the process, worked collaboratively with the prosecutor's office, and the result was what we both considered a 100% successful outcome to my case. I am extremely satisfied with his legal services, and feel very comfortable in recommending him.


Words are not enough to praise the dedication and competency of Attorney Shih. He represented my son in a criminal case, and throughout the proceedings was very informative and thorough. He always responded to our calls in a timely fashion. Atty. Shih's work does not begin and end in the courtroom. He genuinely cares about his clients as though they were a family member. Without hesitation I recommend Atty. Shih for any of your legal matters.

Happy Client

Shawn Gritz has represented our family effectively on two legal matters that entailed court proceedings. He is a thorough, thoughtful professional with a reputation for getting results. We entered court well prepared and felt we were in the hands of an extremely knowledgeable and highly competent attorney who understood our plight and explained things to us. We unequivocally recommend his excellent counsel to others. He and his colleagues at the legal firm offer quality services at reasonable prices.

Henry defended me in a criminal case that resulted in acquittal. He then
was able to expunge the case from the record as well as a prior criminal case that was more than ten years old. My case was filed in June. He briefed me along the way all the time of status of the case and what to expect. He was very thorough and knows his law. I was very happy of his services.


I found Patrick through my company's employee assistance program. I made an inquiry and he contacted me right away to set up an appointment. He was patient, professional and most of all, he listened. He treated me and my family was dignity and respect. Our case had a great outcome because he was on top of every aspect of it from day one. I was able to relax because I knew he had everything under control. He doesn't know it, but he's my attorney for life.


I was recently in need of legal counsel regarding an automobile dispute. I hired Pat Hanifin, and it was a decision that put me at ease right away. Pat was a good listener, responsive to all of my needs, knowledgeable and trustworthy. I highly recommend his services to anyone in need of a high-quality lawyer.


A nuisance of charges, Henry got cleaned up and settled with only a $50 penality fee. Amazing. Great work, responsive, professional.

Well worth the money.

When I needed a good defense attorney I started doing some research and was able to disqualify several attorneys just from talking to them on the phone. I met face to face with my top 3 choices and Patrick Hanifin was one of them. I was looking for an attorney that was a good listener, demonstrated a strong understanding of the laws relating to my situation, and had a common-sense approach to help present my case to the courts. Patrick blew away the competition, it wasn't even close! After meeting with him I felt confident I would get a good result. He reduced my anxiety substantially because I was so confident in his ability. Patrick is very easy to talk to and responds promptly to your calls and emails. His fees are very reasonable and he even set me up with a payment plan. I am very satisfied with the outcome in court and I couldn't have done it without Patrick. Patrick is amazing! 5 Star service all the way!

Henry and Shawn were both very professional and personable. Both have knowledge of the scope of work I hired him to represent my son. Thanks to Henry, the outcome was fantastic! I would recommend this law firm to my friends and family.

Terry Ty

Patrick is very knowledgeable and an advocate in every sense of the word. He clearly explained all of my options and advised me to be proactive in any case. His was a very good argument that the judge agreed with and we won. Can't recommend highly enough.
