Growing up, Hannah wanted to be Indiana Jones. Today she’s an action hero of another kind, meeting deadlines, performing legal research, and crafting innovative legal strategies for her clients. In addition to her focuses and legal specialties, she’s also known as a pioneer in the burgeoning field of Cannabis Law (Dispute Resolution + Litigation).

Hannah made the commitment to become an attorney while still in high school and has worked for attorneys or expert witnesses her entire life. Described by her clients and colleagues as persistent, hardworking, and kind, Hannah’s legal approach is all about spotting any potential harm to her clients coming around the bend, then course-correcting to ensure the smoothest landing and best possible result.

When she’s not working hard to make her clients lives better, Hannah is most likely at a pilates class, practicing her Spanish, reading a good book, or taking her dog to the park.
