  • Mary Kay Hansen

    Attorney Govaerts and I have many clients in common due to the nature of our practice areas. Her clients are always well informed re: their case that she is handling and more important her clients share with me how hard she works on their behalf and how happy they are with her representation. I’ve seen her work and it is top notch! Although a zealous advocate she is personally a real nice person. I am happy to refer cases to her as I know my referrals will be in good hands.
