They say there is no such thing as a former journalist and Hannah Hoffman is a prime example. Although she left her journalism career to pursue a law degree, Hannah brings strong communication, reasoning, and investigative skills to bear for her business litigation clients in both appellate and trial courts. Hannah is an excellent writer and oral advocate.
Hannah specializes in complex litigation, including high-stakes business and contract disputes, government and election law, and employment litigation, particularly non-competition disputes.
Recent cases include:
Prior to joining Markowitz Herbold, Hannah clerked for the Honorable Michael W. Mosman of the U.S. District Court of Oregon. She was also an assistant attorney general with the Oregon Department of Justice’s Solicitor General’s Office, where she argued ten cases before the Oregon Court of Appeals and drafted and filed 45 appellate briefs, and a Clackamas County deputy district attorney, where she managed a caseload of 200 cases, tried five cases to verdict, and prosecuted multiple civil commitment petitions.
During her journalism career, Hannah reported on politics, government, and education for Willamette Week, McMinnville News-Register, and the Statesman Journal.
Hannah is a graduate of the University of Oregon School of Journalism and the University of Michigan Law School.
