  • Margaret H Leek Leiberan

    Deanna Jensen has been my law partner for nearly six years now. In that time I have seen both the genuine caring with which she relates to her clients and the deft legal skills with which she navigates, settles and tries cases. She works very hard to settle cases. However, when she goes to a hearing she is always very prepared and ready to fight hard for the client.
