From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

Jim Michael Hansen (born 1949, Cleveland, Ohio) is the author of the "Laws" novels, which are hard-edged legal/detective thrillers featuring Denver homicide detective Bryson Coventry.


Hansen is a graduate of Cleveland State University, where he earned a B.A. (Mathematics) in 1971 and a M.S. (Mathematics) in 1973. Following graduation, Hansen taught mathematics to junior high school students for ten years in the Cleveland Municipal School District.

In 1980, Hansen obtained a Juris Doctorate from the Cleveland Marshall College of Law. During law school, Hansen was invited to join the Cleveland State Law Review based on his upper 10% class standing after the first year. He then served as an Associate Editor (1979) and Editor (1980) on the Cleveland State Law Review. His student note, Cross-Certification Teacher Tenure Problems in Ohio, was one of a handful of student submissions that was published in the Law Review. A second student article (Unreliability of Radar) was published in the Law and Fact Magazine, which earned the 1979 Exegesis Award from the Cuyahoga County Bar Association for the best published article received during the year from a law school student.

Following graduation from law school, Hansen served for three years as a Law Clerk to the Honorable Robert B. Krupansky, Circuit Judge, United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, Cleveland, Ohio. In 1984 Hansen was admitted to the bar of the Colorado Supreme Court and has been practicing law in Colorado since that time.

In 2006 he was an attorney in Denver, Colorado specializing in civil litigation and employment law.[1]
