Attorney Profile

An attorney at Hance & Srinivasan, P.L.L.C., Michael R. Hance focuses his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Based in Louisville, he provides effective advocacy for his clients in the greater metropolitan area and throughout Kentucky. Admitted to practice in Kentucky since 1980, Mr. Hance is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Courts for the Western and Eastern Districts of Kentucky as well as before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit and the Supreme Court of the United States.

Mr. Hance's clients are Kentucky residents who have suffered economic and noneconomic harm as a result of the negligence of other persons or entities. The types of cases that he has handled throughout his distinguished career have arisen out of incidents, including birth injuries and other forms of medical malpractice, truck and other motor vehicle crashes, nursing home negligence, construction site accidents, toxic torts, and defective products. Mr. Hance has been able to recover significant compensation for his clients, through jury awards and settlements that he has negotiated outside of court with defendants and their insurance companies, and this has led to his membership in the invitation-only Million Dollar Advocates Forum. He has received other recognition from his colleagues for his successful track record as well, including an AV Preeminent* peer-review rating through Martindale-Hubbell.

A 1977 recipient of a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Louisville, Mr. Hance remained on campus for his legal education at the school's Louis D. Brandeis School of Law and was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1980. He has since taught courses on trial practice at his law school alma mater. Mr. Hance is a member of the American Association for Justice and a past president of the Kentucky Justice Association.
