About Hannah

Hannah C. Ellis

Hannah’s practice focuses on elder law, including estate planning, estate and trust administration, guardianships, and estate, trust and guardianship litigation.

With her degree in gerontology, Hannah is well equipped to understand the emotional, physical, and mental aspects of aging in clients.  Her empathy and experience also allow her to assist clients with the legal and personal complexities involved with planning for the future, including dealing with the loss of a loved one while administering an Estate or amid litigation, and helping families who are dealing with a loved one’s incapacity.

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).

Hannah serves on various professional committees, including the Maryland State Bar Association Elder Law and Disability Rights Section and is a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA).

Hannah resides in Catonsville, Maryland with her husband, two cats, and dog. In her spare time, she enjoys painting, cooking, and spending 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!
