How Can I Help You Move Forward?

As a commercial litigation attorney, I find that tailored legal strategies, clear and ongoing communication, and a focus on efficiency are the formula for achieving each client’s desired outcomes in disputes – always driven by the clients business objectives. 


Hannah Quicksell is an experienced litigator representing clients in a wide range of contractual disputes, as well as bankruptcy, data privacy, and various tortious claims, including defamation and fraud. 

Outside the Office

In Hannah’s free time, she enjoys writing fiction, especially speculative fiction including cli-fi, futurism and magical realism. She also plays piano, and crafts costumes, floats and throws with her Mardi Gras krewe.
