Gregory Hansen " I would highly recommend him"
I have high regards for Greg. There has been times when I need a knowledgeable lawyer in my corner. Help me understand the best options and how to proceed forward with them. My wife and I own a business and an issue came up where we needed legal help. It was the first time we had a case go to court, let's say it was very stressful. With Greg's personality and composer he made it easy to communicate the problem we had before us. He listened and then set things in to place for our court date. End results we won the case. That was a great day.

Ultimate Professional
Greg Hansen has forever been kind, professional, engaged and highly successful in my many dealings with him. Greg has many specific talents, not the least of which is his unique ability to keep things simple. In a matter that seemed gigantic, and difficult, Greg reduced it down into smaller, manageable parts, all the while instilling confidence in me and the process. His in depth understanding of the law and his experience have proven to be a godsend in many ways for me and my family.

Not just a lawyer, a business partner.
Greg provides excellent legal advice for all our organizations. He has assisted us in collecting funds, settling matters, responding to accusations, and in many other ways. No matter what the service, a phone call, a question, a letter, or legal representation, he always provides top notch service.

Great lawyer and a great friend
Greg has done a magnificent job representing our company for many years. You can talk to Greg about any issue, from a large legal matter to a minor problem within the company. He is easy to talk to, straight forward, and honest. Greg is not only a great lawyer but he has also been a great friend. I have laughed with Greg outside of the office numerous times. I recommend Greg to any business owner without hesitation.

Excellent work
I had Mr. Hansen handle all the facets of setting my new corporation. Everything was completed exactly how and when I was told it would be, and I am very pleased. I would recommend Mr. Hansen to anyone without thinking twice. I have already recommended him to two friends, both of whom have reported they also have been well served.
