Just the right approach
When I hired Hannah I told her I wanted an attorney who would fight for me but not be overly aggressive. Despite my husband taking a very aggressive approach in our custody case, Hannah took just the right tone and did an amazing job handling my case. You cannot go wrong with her as your legal counsel, especially if you have custody issues.

Great work on messy divorce
Hannah did superb work on my divorce. She went toe-to-toe with an older, well-known male attorney in town on the other side, and won. Hannah knows what she's doing. I recommend her to anyone going through a divorce.
