"I came to DuBois Cary when my divorce dragged on for well over a year. My ex would not give up his belief that he was due 70% of my retirement after a very short marriage. Denise Hansen explained the law to me; helped me find a very good mediator; and best of all, helped alleviate the crushing stress I was under. I kept my retirement, and I’m finally divorced. I highly recommend Denise and DuBois Cary Law Group for wonderful care, and kindness when you need it most." ~W. W.

I was born and raised in the Chicago-land area, and will always consider myself a Chicago girl at heart although I absolutely love living in Seattle. I earned a degree in finance from the University of Illinois and started my career as a futures and options auditor. I went on to become a financial analyst for a couple of years before deciding that I needed a career change where I could more directly work with and help people. I attended law school at Tulane University in New Orleans, and am incredibly proud to have lived in such a diverse, rich, and amazing city. The time I lived in New Orleans was a period of time where the city was filled with unfaltering hope, revitalization, and rejuvenation post-Katrina. I will be forever grateful that I was able to call myself a New Orleanian for three incredible years. During law school, I interned at the Cook County Criminal Court in Chicago, and at the Northwest Justice Project in Seattle. After graduating from law school, I worked for the Honorable Judge Julie Spector at the King County Superior Court.

I feel very fortunate to be able to say that I love my job. I love being able to help people as they transition from the familiar to the unknown – to an unknown filled with endless possibility. Nothing brings me greater joy in my work than seeing the evolution my clients undergo from the beginning of their case to the conclusion. I think many people are surprised by their own strength and transformations; it’s thrilling to be a part of their journey! Family law deals with two areas many people hold most dear – their family and their finances. It is a highly emotionally charged area of law, and I enjoy bringing my financial background to the table. It is my job as an attorney to advocate to the best of my ability for my clients, to educate them on the law, and to listen to them when all they need is an ear.

I love music and am a classically trained pianist as well as a saxophone player. A huge sports fan, I am always rooting on my Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, and Fighting Illini. After living in the incredible city of New Orleans, I am an avid supporter of any and all things championing the rebuilding of NOLA.

My favorite activity outside of the office is spending time with my husband, two children, and three fur- babies.

    I don't know what I would do with out Lucia and Tania as my legal team. Lucia has been my lawyer for about 5 years. I would recommend her to anyone. She shows up for me completely prepared for the courtroom, is totally confident in her presentations and and is so knowledgeable. I can't thank them enough for all they have done.

    While my ex and I had an almost wholly amicable split we felt completely unqualified to fairly divvy up our assets. Monica--in a single meeting--looked at the money and helped us reach an agreement we both felt was more than fair. She was relaxed, professional, knowledgeable and efficient. Couldn't have asked for me. I highly recommend her.

    Michelle and Jason are not just extremely knowledgeable and efficient in family law, but also very caring and empathetic. Because of there experience and help, I have the schedule with my daughter I was fighting for and as a result can spend more time with her. Thank you both! I would highly recommend Michelle Fontenot to anyone in need of a family law attorney.
