Lando, chair of Buchanan’s Financial Services section. “We are excited to work with John to offer both finance representation and legal support in complementary practices to his clients and contacts.”

Hanley earned his J.D. from Fordham University School of Law in 2000 and a B.A. from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, summa cum laude, in 1996. At Fordham, he founded the Fordham Law School Gavel and Shield Association, as well as the Thomas F. Murphy Award for Dedication to Justice.
