VOLUNTEER AND COMMUNITY WORK:
Before starting her current role as a consultant, Hannah was the Director of Policy where she lobbied for legislation in the Colorado General Assembly to improve the treatment of children and youth in the Colorado juvenile justice system. With a passion for policy, Hannah played an integral role in getting breakthrough legislation passed that authorized resentencing hearings for individuals sentenced to life without parole for crimes committed when they were juveniles. Hannah continues to volunteer for CJDC as a volunteer in their juvenile expungement and sex offender deregistration project, and she also consults with the organization on policy and fundraising.
Hannah co-founded a nonprofit organization and serves on the Board of Directors for, Learn Your Rights in Colorado (LYRIC). LYRIC teaches high school students about their constitutional rights. LYRIC’s curriculum is currently taught in 40 Colorado high schools.
Hannah represents victims of human trafficking as a volunteer attorney for ALIGHT, a non-profit organization based in Colorado. When victims need help sealing or expunging their criminal records, or obtaining a protection order, Hannah volunteers to do a small part to facilitate as the survivors create a fresh start after facing victimization.
Hannah has committed to the annual goal of 50 hours of pro bono legal services, a substantial majority of which should be for persons of limited means and/or organizations serving persons of limited means.
Hannah has been hired by lawyers across to the state of Colorado to consult in cases involving complex juvenile defense litigation, specifically cases involving allegations of sexual assault and preparation for cross examination of expert witnesses. Hannah’s experience in these areas allows her to work with lawyers to solve complex legal issues, and teach them about the intricacies of defending children charged in delinquency and criminal proceedings.
