Hannah Devoe is an up-and-coming attorney who works with public and private employers throughout New Hampshire, advising them on all aspects of employment law.  Recognizing that employment law is complex and ever-changing, she brings a high level of commitment and compassion to every challenge her clients face.

Hannah served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Law Review while at Roger Williams University School of Law.  She hosted a Legal Symposium entitled: An Uncomfortable Truth: Indigenous Communities and Law in New England and was a program leader and volunteer teacher with the RWU chapter of Street Law. She completed several legal externships, including positions at Textron, Inc., the Defense Institute of International Legal Studies (DIILS), and Bentley Systems. Prior to law school, she served as a Judicial Intern to the Honorable James Gleason at the New Hampshire Circuit Court, District Division in Keene.

She recently completed a Master of Laws in International Commercial Law at University College London (UCL). While living abroad and studying at UCL, she received a certificate for participating in the UCL Law Teachers Program. She also represented UCL at Law Without Walls in St. Gallen, Switzerland, which is an intergenerational, cross-cultural, multi-disciplinary sprint where groups co-create and present innovative solutions to problems at the intersection of law, business, and technology.

While happy to be back living in her home state of New Hampshire, Hannah is a passionate world traveler who enjoys learning new skills (knitting and embroidery of late), reading historical and fiction books, soaking up music at live concerts, and spending time with family and friends.
