He is a member of the NH, ME, and National Associations of Criminal Defense Lawyers, National College for DUI Defense, as well as the NH Bar Association's Family Law Section. Over an 18-year career, Attorney Hansen has been compared to a badger by some and to Jimmy Stewart by others.

Attorney Hansen lives near Portsmouth with his wife and two children. In addition to time spent with family, Al enjoys cycling and skiing.

Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered
Q. Married in NYC in 2016, moved to Maine in Sept. 2023. My wife left in Oct and is living in PA. What state do I file?
A: You may be able to file in Maine now if that is where the cause of divorce accrued. If not, Maine cannot exercise jurisdiction until you've lived here in good faith for 6 months prior to filing the divorce. The other questions cannot be answered without more facts.
Q. Aftergetting guilty verdict dui bench trial.Mistakes made by judge.Should I put motion in pointing them out or on appeal
A: File a Motion to Reconsider citing the issues of law or findings of fact you believe the Judge misapprehended. This must be done within 10 days of sentencing. If you are outside that 10-day window, file a Motion for Late Filing as well explaining why you were late. This tolls the 30-day appeal period within which a Notice of Appeal must be filed with the NH Supreme Court. An appeal must be filed within 30 days of sentencing unless tolled by the previous filing. If a class A misdemeanor, you can appeal for a trial de novo (Jury Trial in Superior Court) per the previous answer. Call a DWI lawyer.
Q. End of dui bench trial. Judge said we had 10 days to get closing statement in. Would judge give prosecutor more time?
A: The Judge could give the prosecutor more time if he or she asks for it and he or she has a good reason for asking for it.
