Courtney Hanson is a licensed Texas attorney and mediator. She received her undergraduate degree from Concordia University in Austin, Texas in English in 2007. Courtney continued on to graduate law school from Texas Wesleyan, now Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth, Texas where she earned her Juris Doctorate in 2010. She received her mediator certificate in completing 40 hours of alternative dispute resolution and she volunteered for the community’s bankruptcy clinic and served 30 pro-bono hours in debtor collection dispute resolution.
After law school, Courtney successfully passed the Texas State Bar Exam and returned to her hometown of Austin, Texas to serve as a legislative attorney at the Texas State Capitol during both the 82nd and 83rd Texas Legislative Sessions.
In 2015, Courtney accepted a position in California where she spent the next four years building up a personal injury firm in Beverly Hills. She successfully grew a single lawyer’s practice to a staff of 37 and earned a reputation in the industry as a leading firm in pre-litigation settlements, largely due to her tenacity and dedication to her clients’ needs. She recently returned to Fort Worth to join PLG as the firm’s pre-litigation attorney primarily responsible for negotiating fair and effective settlement of their clients’ injury claims without having to go to court. She works hard to negotiate favorable settlements for all of her clients and takes great pride in providing zealous representation to the often under-valued and disadvantaged community of injured Texans fighting against large insurance companies for the justice they deserve.
After hours, Courtney enjoys spending time with her many family members in Fort Worth, including her dog, a rescue named Apollo. She loves outdoor activities, cycling, birdwatching, scuba diving, and skiing.
