You want an attorney with an education from a top tier school. The University of Oxford earned the distinction of top university in the world. That’s a serious title. Merrill A. Hanson studied both (“read”) NAFTA/European Union Relations as well as Music Theory at the University of Oxford in 2005, and returned home with straight A’s. He attended both New College (founded in 1379), and Magdalen College (founded 1448). Learn more about Oxford’s “Best in the World” ranking here:

True, Pedigree Is Not Everything
Pedigree is not everything, but sometimes it helps. It’s true, there are many out there that can get an education, yet have not the ability to put it to work, or to serve their communities well. We like to celebrate our educational successes, but we recognize that an education is only part of the puzzle. It shows a person has diligence, drive, ambition, and determination, particularly in the pursuit of higher degrees. It does not automatically create success or make good people. Those kinds of things you have to measure in different ways.
The Law Office of Merrill A. Hanson is about truth and integrity. We want to serve you with our whole highly-educated-by-top-schools brains.
