Hannah Cole


Hannah’s practice profile is unique; she is perhaps the only attorney in the country with separate practice areas in political advising and domestic relations. Both benefit from her exposure and training in risk and crisis management, and are similar in that they often involve both extreme attention to detail along with the ability to manage emotionally charged situations. Hannah advises political organizations and candidates on issues ranging from FARA and FCPA to defamation and organizational crises. She has a keen understanding of local and national politics that guide her management of crises that arise in political work in every aspect from background investigations to litigation.

Hannah’s family practice encompasses a wide range of family, divorce, and broader domestic matters, and sometimes crosses over when clients with significant media profiles in politics and entertainment go through family dissolution. Hannah approaches each client as an individual with unique issues in order to properly understand the client’s needs. Her domestic relations practice includes divorce, pre and post marital agreements, property distribution and child support. A skilled problem solver who finds efficient and comprehensive solutions for her clients, Hannah understands that legal issues impact many aspects of a client’s life and business, and often their political future as well. Hannah’s understanding of complex political affairs compliments her work on family matters, as the issues that arise on the national stage often affect and are affected by the inner workings of the home. She works to minimize risk while maximizing upside, with a precise focus on issues most central to the client. Hannah’s attention to detail provides clients with assurance and peace of mind while dealing with difficult family and business matters.

Outside of her primary practice areas, Hannah selectively works on a variety of cases ranging from sexual harassment and workplace behavior to general business and contractual matters. Hannah has experience in sensitive negotiations and litigation with high profile clients, aiding her understanding in representing a broad range of clients in court and negotiations. She operates with discretion, understanding the uniquely delicate nature of legal issues that involve sensitive family, political, and business matters.

Hannah resides in Maine and outside of work she enjoys spending time with friends and family, and experiencing all the state has to offer, from craft cocktails to cross country skiing. When circumstances allow, she often travels throughout the U.S. and internationally. Hannah is a member of the Maine Bar and the New York Bar.
