About Hannah


An Albany native, Hannah’s career began in arts administration; after receiving her bachelor’s degree from Ithaca College she worked as an administrator at the Troy Savings Bank Music Hall in Troy, New York. While she loved her work, her lifelong interest in the legal system and criminal justice continued to grow. When the opportunity presented itself Hannah returned to school to obtain a degree in paralegal studies and knew she had found the career field for her. Hannah originally joined the Nave Law Firm as an intern and was thrilled to be able to continue her work in criminal defense with the firm.

As a paralegal, Hannah is dedicated to bringing quality care and excellent work to each case and the unique stories of every client. She is committed to building a strong connection between clients and their legal team, regardless of their background or circumstances. Hannah is a team player who thrives on providing quality support to the rest of her team and creating a personalized legal experience that goes above and beyond the average firm.
