Hans legal is led by director and principal Dylan Hans, who has been practising exclusively in criminal law since 2014. Dylan is an experienced and skilled lawyer who leaves no stone unturned when advising his clients and advocating on their behalves.

Kelsea Read joined our team in 2019, expanding our ability to offer quality representation for our clients. Kelsea is passionate about criminal justice and acts as a strong voice for her clients in all stages of legal proceedings.

Together, Dylan and Kelsea offer a vibrant and unique service to our clients. Our values are important to us. We want every client to feel they have a lawyer they can talk to, who will fight for them in the right way and won’t charge unnecessary fees.

Dylan was extremely knowledgeable, patient and understanding in my dealings with him. I would recommend anyone who required his services to have him represent them. I found Dylan to be professional throughout both my correspondence and in representation of myself to the courts.

Amanda, Beenleigh Magistrates Court

Dylan is a fantastic lawyer and has been extremely patient in my case. For once there is a lawyer who actually sits down and listens. Most lawyers today really have no time to engage and are only interested to give you an estimate of how much it costs.
Dylan has a vast spectrum of criminal law knowledge. Such a lawyer is an asset to the Australian community and I really do wish him the very best in life.
