Hannah Kramer

Thomas Law Group associate Hannah Kramer brings an interdisciplinary background to her land use practice.

Hannah’s practice is focused on land use and planning, including California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) litigation and preparation of environmental documents for use by public and private clients. Her client advocacy is reinforced by her scientific studies and her background in journalism, which enables her to effectively navigate both technical and legal issues.

Hannah graduated from King Hall, at the University of California, Davis in 2019. During law school, she served as the Managing Editor of Environs: Environmental Law & Policy Journal, a teaching assistant in the legal research and writing department, and as the Law Students Association 2019 Class Representative. Hannah also served as the Problem Writing Chair of the King Hall Moot Court Honor’s Board, where she coached oral advocates and constructed fact patterns for use throughout the year and at the annual Neumiller Moot Court Competition. She earned an Intellectual Property Certification in addition to her Juris Doctorate and focused her studies on the intersection of science and policy. Hannah clerked with Thomas Law Group throughout law school. She and Chris Butcher collaborated to write an article titled Friends of the Eel River, ICCTA Preemption, and the Future of California High Speed Rail Litigation, 24 Hastings Envt’l L.J. 73 (2018), which was published in the Hastings Environmental Law Journal.

Hannah earned a B.S. in Genetics & Genome Analysis and a minor in Political Science from the University of California, Davis in 2016. During her undergraduate education, Hannah served as the Science Editor of the California Aggie Newspaper, where she developed a passion for clearly addressing both sides of an issue..

When not collaborating with the Thomas Law Group team to tackle client issues or combing through an Environmental Impact Report, Hannah can be found in her backyard throwing pottery or backpacking through one of Northern California’s stunning natural spaces.
