Mr. Hansen earned his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Economics and Speech, graduating from DePauw University in 1969. He then earned his Doctor of Jurisprudence Degree from Indiana University School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana, in 1973. He sat for and passed the State of Indiana Bar Examination in 1973. Upon passing the bar, Mr. Hansen became an Attorney Advisor for the Federal Communications Commission, working in the newly created Cable Television Bureau. Mr. Hansen, on behalf of the Commission, authored and had published numerous legal opinions establishing new precedents in the regulation of this rapidly growing industry. When cable television regulation became routine, Mr. Hansen left the FCC and returned to the State of Indiana where he engaged in the private practice of law. His practice had a concentration on income taxation and estate planning. He also had considerable interest in the establishment of new businesses.

In the mid-1980s, he moved to Missouri, studied investments and finance, became admitted to the Missouri Bar, and began providing consulting services. His bigger clients included MasterCard International, AT&T Universal Card, and NCR Corporation. His work at AT&T Universal Card helped earn that company the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 1992.

After the turn of the century, Mr. Hansen scaled back services for major corporate clients and focused more on small to intermediate sized businesses. In 2015, a longtime friend and family member of his died, making him the executor of her estate. She was well read and quite accomplished, and had achieved the basics in estate planning. Unfortunately the basics are just not adequate in this day and age. Conventional probate results in unnecessary delays and waste. Consequently, Mr. Hansen’s practice has taken on evangelism in estate planning.

Mr. Hansen’s life experiences have bridged the areas of business planning, finance and investing, and estate planning. He has personal experience in not only the practice of law, but the actual real life application of activities in these areas.
