About Hannah

Hannah is a skilled litigator, whose expertise lies in swift, fair, and client-focused solutions to legal disputes. Hannah excels in client representation and case strategy, frequently receiving desired outcomes at contested hearings. Hannah’s passion for advocating for just outcomes extends beyond the courtroom, as she understands the need to think creatively, and to effectively negotiate and strategize on behalf of her clients.

Hannah has a litigation background in both criminal and public interest law, and has previously represented foster youth, and individuals experiencing highly-contested family law matters. She has also appeared as a prosecutor in various district attorneys’ offices. Hannah’s background has made her sensitive to the impact that legal disputes have on an individual’s life, and to the need to provide clear and competent counsel from the outset.

A Bay Area native, Hannah is passionate about supporting and giving back to her community. In her free time, Hannah can be found hiking trails all around the Bay Area, or spending time with her partner and their two cats, Serrano and Jalapeno. She loves all things food and appreciates the vast cuisine that the Bay Area has to offer.
