Michael P. Hanle has been representing the homeless community for many years. He first began volunteering at the First Light Shelter in 2008
assisting homeless clients with their criminal issues. He has volunteered at Project Homeless Connect from 2010 - 2017. He has been volunteering with the BBVLP since 2016.

"Michael has always said yes to helping homeless people; with no hesitation."
Earlier this month,
Michael assisted eleven clients
in one day
at the City of Birmingham
Municipal Court. All the homeless clients that were in court
had pending cases from Project Homeless Connect. Out of those eleven cases
Michael was able to resolve six cases. Michael made a difference in each client's life.
Here's what some of Michael's homeless clients said about him:
"Michael's representation was amazing. Michael has an understanding of the people like me. He put himself on the level of humanity. He is more concerned with helping people instead of money. He was so professional. I believe God put the BBVLP and Michael Hanle in my life. God put the best lawyer in court for me."
