Jack Hanssen has over 10 years of experience working with Moyes & Associates, PLLC since arriving here in 2004, shortly after graduating from Notre Dame Law School in 2002. A large part of his practice focuses on assisting clients with real estate matters. A Loudoun County Area Representative to the Real Estate Section of the Virginia State Bar, in 2012 he participated in updating the Virginia CLE publication, “Real Estate Transactions in Virginia.” He has handled a wide variety of cases including: commercial lease and contract negotiation, landlord-tenant representation and unlawful detainers, negotiation of easement disputes and real estate litigation, business sale agreements, subdivision and boundary line adjustments, and real estate tax assessment appeals before the Loudoun County Board of Equalization.
Together with David Moyes, he has developed extensive experience in representing landowners in conservation easement transactions and land preservation tax credit applications to the Virginia Department of Taxation.
His other practice areas includes the preparation of wills, trusts, and handling probate and estate administration. He also represents clients with business law and organization, and has assisted clients in setting up numerous limited liability companies in Virginia. As part of this practice he assisted a group of physicians in drafting a private placement memorandum for an exempt securities offering to finance the construction of a multi-million dollar physician-owned medical office building.
During law school, Jack Hanssen spent his summers clerking for Federal Magistrate Judge John Facciola in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia and D.C. law firms including Stein, Mitchell & Mezines (now Stein, Mitchell, Muse & Cipollone, LLP). After entering the Virginia Bar in 2002, he began his practice in Fairfax County where he handled primarily criminal and landlord tenant disputes. Prior to coming to the firm, he also helped start up two real estate settlement companies in the area and handling discovery in large scale federal litigation.
A native of Northern Virginia, Jack lives north of Leesburg, with his wife and three boys, on a small farm where they keep horses and a menagerie of other animals. He and his wife are active members of St. John the Apostle Roman Catholic Church in Leesburg, where he served on the Building Committee for the new church constructed at the corner of King Street and Oakcrest Manor Drive.
