With ten years of experience in the legal field, Alyssa Hanson has finally made her way back to Nelson Defense Group.  Alyssa first began her legal career as a file clerk for Attorney Nelson and his Legal Assistant Connie Berning.  While in college, Alyssa was hired by Nelson Defense Group to do trial prep while also working as an office assistant at a personal injury law firm in River Falls.  After college, Alyssa worked as a Legal Assistant for a law firm in New Richmond until her boss retired.  Alyssa has a solid background in personal injury, family law, general litigation, real estate, estate planning, criminal defense, and now alcohol-related offenses. 

Alyssa graduated from University of Wisconsin-River Falls with a bachelor’s degree and is licensed to teach Art in grades K-12.  Although she still has a passion for teaching, Alyssa truly enjoys working as a Legal Assistant.  In her free time, she finds ways to teach Art to the youth in her community in addition to finding time to create her own artwork.   In 2022, Alyssa married her high school sweetheart and they are proud owners of two cats.
