Jon took our family law case after a difficult and expensive experience with a different lawyer. Our case involved 2 states and he worked confidently and professionally with our lawyer in the different state. Once jurisdiction was established in our favor, Jon was very experienced and professional, walking us through the pros and cons of each decision in our case, holding our hands when needed, and letting us be very hands on when we wanted that. Jon was patient, fair and knew the judges and opposing counsel. His experience and professionalism gave us reassurance during a very difficult time. We would highly recommend Jon.
I felt as if Mr. Hansen was not the best lawyer and I regretted hiring him after a few weeks of dealing with him and my ex's more aggressive lawyer. If you want a mediator or are in the middle of a civil divorce then Mr. Hansen might be ok. But most divorces are not civil and Mr. Hansen is too easy and will let the other lawyer walk all over you. I did not feel as if he fought for me and I did not feel as if he listened without prejudice and did the best job for me. My ex had an aggressive, take-charge lawyer and I wish my ex had Mr. Hansen instead. Unfortunately both lawyers cost the same and I did not get the better deal. I would pass on this lawyer unless you are in the middle of a civil divorce.
I highly recommend Mr. Hansen. Professional, smart, knowledgeable, empathic, honest. He would do everything to help you save when it comes to legal fees (surprise, surprise...not all lawyers are after your life savings!!) He helped me settle (divorce) through mediation, saving me thousands of dollars.
I was very fortunate to come across Mr. Hansen in a time of dire need, and benefited from his professional services tremendously! He is very intelligent, even-keeled and understanding, and knows the law and legal system as well as anyone! His attention to detail and response time to emails and any questions, along with his advice is stellar! I was a ball of nerves through the entire family court process, and he was always understanding and coached me through some very difficult times! I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Hansen in a heartbeat! He is very forthright, honest, empathetic, highly organized, very resourceful, and most of all a good man who really does care!
I brought Jon in very late in the divorce process and he worked his backside off (including weekend) to be prepared going into court in a rather ugly divorce. He helped me manage my emotions through the process and without that I would have really screwed up. A good lawyer and a better person.
