What Past Clients Say

I was referred to Mrs. Hansen by another lawyer with different expertise. From the very moment we first met and spoke about my case Marcia was a doll. Very knowledgeable in her field and good at explaining things in layman’s terms for those unfamiliar with legal jargon. I highly recommend her for any criminal cases. She was great at negotiating a plea deal for me and I’m satisfied with the outcome of this case. I’m very pleased with my decision to hire her as my representation.
