Overview

Hannah Hughes focuses her practice on civil litigation matters. Hannah graduated California Western School of Law, Magna Cum Laude. Hannah then went on to practice in Family Law where she made multiple court appearances weekly, argued move away trials, and vigorously fought for and against Restraining Orders.

Hannah decided to make the change to civil litigation to help more people, and she takes a very client centered approach to her cases. Before attending law school, Hannah worked at a Domestic Violence non-profit. There, she began to learn and utilize client-centered and trauma-based support mechanisms to help her clients.
