USD Law Graduate Hanson Appointed Judge in Second Circuit
“Sandra Hanson is a conscientious, respected attorney,” said Gov. Daugaard. “She will make an excellent judge, and I thank her for serving the public in this way.”
Hanson was born in Langford, South Dakota, and has been a partner at Davenport Evans, having practiced with the firm since 1993. She graduated from the USD School of Law with honors in 1992. She was also an editor of the South Dakota Law Review.
Hanson is taking over for Mark Salter, whom Daugaard appointed to the South Dakota Supreme Court this year. The circuit covers Lincoln and Minnehaha counties.
Hanson is a member of the American Board of Trial Attorneys, the South Dakota Defense Lawyers Association and the Society for Human Resources Management. She is the chair of the Civil Service Board for the City of Sioux Falls, a member of the state leadership board for the American Cancer Society, and a past director of Volunteers of America of the Dakotas.
