Personal Injury Lawyer North Vancouver

Our Story

Hanson & Co was founded by lawyer Jim Hanson. Called to the bar in 1985, and holding law degrees from both UBC and Oxford (England), Jim has practiced personal injury law for most of three decades. Hanson & Co opened its doors on April 1, 2015 and in January 2016, the firm expanded with the addition of two experienced personal injury lawyers, Lawrence O’Neill and John Green. The firm is conveniently located in the heart of North Vancouver, occupying the top floor of 1401 Lonsdale. We also see clients in our Burnaby office.

Testimonials

  • In May of 2015, my Husband was in a serious motor vehicle accident. Jim Hanson has made the most difficult time of ours lives manageable. He has allowed our family to focus on my Husbands recovery while he fights endlessly to take care of our every need. He is professional, but he is also incredibly compassionate. He has truly been our backbone this last year.

    - Ashley Kirkpatrick

  • I have no hesitation in recommending Jim Hanson as your advocate on personal injury law matters. I have known Jim since early studies at Simon Fraser University in the late 70’s. Jim was one of the brightest and most attentive individuals among my study mates. But above and beyond that, Jim has always been consistently dependable and reliable on all matters of importance. And when the going gets tough, you can count on Jim to be at your side. I count Jim as one of my most trusted, committed and valued colleagues. He even has a sense of humour. You will be lucky to have him at your side.

    I will stand behind that.

    - Bruce Redekop, J.D.

  • I have had the pleasure of working with Jim Hanson for over 20 years. Jim has an exceptional ability to engage, listen, connect and thoughtfully consider the needs of others. His integrity, depth of experience and knowledge and his willingness to go “above and beyond” in helping others is exceptional. Jim’s skills and personal attributes are ideally suited to helping injured clients as they navigate the vulnerability of having pain and disability; and the stress and challenges of litigation and settling their claim. I highly recommend Jim for personal injury representation.

    - Wayne Enright, Occupational Therapist

  • I have known Jim Hanson for many years, in both a personal and professional capacity. Jim is very family oriented. A caring, compassionate, fair, honest, trustworthy, highly competent and professional disposition is what you can expect from Jim when he represents you in a personal injury lawsuit. I have provided several settlement loans to Jim's clients and my experience has been that Jim delivers on his promises. I highly recommend him.

    - Norm Binion, Financial Advisor MBA, FMA, CIM.

  • I have known Jim Hanson to be an effective, conscientious and compassionate advocate for the hurt and injured. I have no hesitation recommending him as a personal injury lawyer.

    - David N. Fai, prominent Vancouver Criminal Defence Counsel

  • Last year, I was cycling on a quiet street when I was hit by a car travelling at an excessive speed. I spent three months recovering in hospital and more time recovering at home. Throughout this process, Jim Hanson provided both sound legal advice and empathetic support. Jim is a respected lawyer with extensive medical – legal experience whom I would recommend to anyone who has had the misfortune to suffer a traumatic injury.
