Margaret Henderson

Senior Paralegal 

As an Iowa City native and University of Iowa graduate, living and working here gives me a great sense of community.  I pursued a degree in Psychology with the goal of helping others, and I bring that same mentality to serving my clients here at Hoefer.  After beginning my Paralegal career with a Cedar Rapids law firm, I started working with Mary at the Mears Law Office in 2008.  I live in Iowa City with my husband, son, and dog Charlie.

“In one word- caring. Margaret was also amazing. She often calmed me down through this process. She would always take time to listen to me. Not just anyone would have done this.”
