Denise Hansen

Attorney Licensed in Washington

Denise Hansen is an experienced litigator and transactional attorney dedicated to representing small businesses, nonprofits, and individuals in the Seattle, WA area. Her hands-on business experience gives her a practical perspective on the challenges facing businesses and nonprofits.

Denise was born and raised near Chicago and earned a finance degree from the University of Illinois. After earning her undergraduate degree, Denise worked as a  futures and options auditor and went on to become a financial analyst. After working with numbers for several years, Denise discovered that working with people was her true passion. This discovery led her to Tulane University in New Orleans where she earned her Juris Doctor. During law school, Denise interned at the Cook County Criminal Court in Chicago and at the Northwest Justice Project in Seattle. After graduating from law school, Denise worked for the Honorable Judge Julie Spector at the King County Superior Court.

Following law school, Denise relocated to Seattle where she focused on family law litigation at the DuBois Cary Law Group, PLLC. As a family law practitioner, Denise gained insight into the numerous intersections between business and family law. She gained invaluable experience in litigation and negotiation, as well as first-hand experience as to how litigation can impact all aspects of an individual’s life.

At Lyda Law Firm, Denise uses those skills to help small businesses and nonprofits navigate through the complex legal landscape that is unique to the state of Washington. She prides herself in her work and always advocates for her clients to the best of her ability. Denise also enjoys listening to her clients and educating them about the law. 

In addition to her extensive legal work, Denise is a classically trained pianist and saxophone player. When she is not spending time with her husband, two children, and two “fur babies,” you can find Denise rooting for the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, and Fighting Illini. After living in New Orleans during law school, Denise is also an avid supporter of any and all things championing the rebuilding of NOLA.
