"I was arrested for the first and only time in my life and did not know what to do and who to trust. I was referred to Ms. Hansen and I cannot say enough positive things about her. She immediately put me at ease, was extremely informative, continuously kept in contact with me and obtained a great result. My case was dismissed and then she got it expunged. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs an experienced, dedicated, strong and trustworthy criminal defense attorney."

I definitely would recommend this lawyer don’t fall for the lies the rest of the lawyers tell you."
