Hannah provides a tremendous amount of guidance and support. I always knew that she had my best interest in mind. Her communication was excellent-she always got back to me almost immediately and was there when I needed her. I have and would recommend her to anyone who was going through a divorce. She has helped me tremendously.
I know Hannah both professionally and personally and she is one of the most wonderful attorneys I know. She is very driven and takes time to understand issues of her clients so that she can come up with best plan that makes sense and has the best possible outcome. I would recommend her to anyone I know: friends, family, clients. Hannah is very driven and it shows in her work. You won’t be disappointed.
Hannah was easy to work with and responsive and thorough in all of our correspondence. She is extremely knowledgeable in her field and I would highly recommend her for legal services.
Hannah is the best! She is very professional, extremely detailed and always responds timely. Hannah has handled my divorce and a modification. I know she is the best and would not want to work with anyone else. I still remember my first meeting with Hannah. In that meeting I knew she was the right fit for my case. She listened to my situation, gave me great advise and have enjoyed working with her ever since. I have complete trust in her. Hannah knows her cases and works so hard for her clients. Given my difficult co-parenting situation, I know I’ll be working with her on all future issues that I am sure will arise.
Hannah Sommers was very professional and competent in the way she handled legal issues for me. She has another quality that not everyone has…true compassion! Let’s face it…when one is in need of legal assistance it usually involves an issue with significant associated emotional and financial stress. Hannah not only provides excellent legal counsel, but she has a calming demeanor, punctuated with kindness, and the ability to remove barriers that are preventing the movement of issues to resolution. She is transparent and reliable and sees every client as a person in need, first and foremost. She is exactly the kind of person one wants to help navigate unfamiliar legal waters.
I was represented by Hannah Sommers and can’t say enough good things. She is intelligent, diligent, efficient and everything you want in an attorney. I didn’t know who to turn to for help, I wish I had found her right away.
