Meet The Team
Attorney Denise Anderson is known as the person to call if no one else can figure it out. As a legal advocate, Denise is thorough and detailed in her approach and isn’t afraid to set precedent for her clients.
Denise grew up in a small town in western Kansas, where she watched her father work his day job and build a successful farming and cattle business at night and on weekends. Her ingrained work ethic has led her to start a few of her own businesses, charter a preschool, graduate from law school magna cum laude, and take a short detour to follow another passion and become a pastry chef in NYC.
As an attorney, Denise attributes her success to her five children. A parent for 39 years (and hopefully another 39!), makes Denise an expert at remaining calm and firm when faced with adversity. Denise knows how to listen, mediate and solve problems. A lawyer with 27 years experience, she commands her client’s challenges with disciplined confidence, professional integrity and persuasive diplomacy.
