About Hannah

Hannah C. Ellis

Hannah is a member of the firm’s Elder Law and Estate Planning practice area.  With her degree in Gerontology, Hannah is well equipped to understand the emotional, physical, and mental aspects of aging in clients, as well as the complexities that are involved with planning for the future. She is committed to caring for her clients, as well as ensuring that their wishes and needs are met, while being informed of every decision along the way. Most importantly, she wishes to ensure that every client feels as if their voice is heard.

Hannah also concentrates her practice on special needs planning and planning for disability and/or long-term care planning, specifically by aiding clients with the planning needed to ensure that they or their loved ones are provided for without being disqualified from receiving government benefits, such as Medical Assistance or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

In addition with being a member of the firm’s Estate Planning practice, Hannah also contributes to the firm’s Estate, Probate & Trust Administration department, assisting clients with a variety of legal and personal issues, such as dealing with the loss of a loved one whilst administering an Estate, as well as handling any issues that arise during the probate process.

Hannah currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland. In her spare time, she is an avid artist who loves to paint. She also enjoys cooking, running and spending quality time with her family.

Definitely Richard Gere, specifically around the time he was in Pretty Woman.

One talent that I️’d love to have would be being able to play an instrument, specifically the piano. I love to listen to piano sonatas, and was always jealous of those who could play so beautifully.

Anything by Queen! I️ think I️’d have to go with “Don’t stop me now.” Great way to get a karaoke night going!
