For over eighteen years I worked for insurance companies at an insurance defense law firm. I decided that I needed to do what I enjoyed– helping people. So, two years ago I left and started my own personal injury practice as a partner in the boutique firm of Lewis | Hansen. In this context, “boutique” means a small, focused, and dedicated firm of lawyers doing what we love: helping people when unexpected serious injury, caused by others, changed their lives forever.
I recently became familiar with the unexpected when I was riding as a high school mountain biking coach and crashed and broke– rather crushed– my hip. I was ten weeks non-weight-bearing on that leg. Certainly unexpected. I learned from first-hand experience the value of qualified medical experts, second opinions from qualified medical experts, insurance, health insurance, excess insurance, and lots of physical therapy. I also learned more about pain, anxiety, anger, frustration, and hard decisions. During my medical care, I received questionable medical advice. Thankfully, I put my legal experience to work for myself and obtained a second opinion which limited further harm to my already damaged hip.

I would love to get to know you better and how I can help you through your unexpected serious injury. Please feel free to call or email me and we can set up a time to talk or meet.
