Hannah Caroline Neff is an Associate Attorney in the firm’s Jacksonville office practicing primarily in the area of defense litigation. Ms. Neff is a second generation German American and is proud of her family’s hard work that allowed her the opportunity to enter the legal profession.
During her time at Wake Forest Law, Ms. Neff was the Pro Bono Coordinator for Women in Law’s Girl Scout Mock Trial Program. She sought to inspire the next generation of female lawyers by teaching local, middle school aged Girl Scouts oral advocacy skills and mock trial basics. She became a member of the Pro Bono Honor Society for the 80+ hours she dedicated to service. Ms. Neff has also held a variety of leadership positions since she joined Phi Alpha Delta in 2016 and was the President of the Timberlake Chapter at Wake Forest Law.
During her education, Ms. Neff also assisted former military members in restoring their Veteran status by correcting injustices on their records at Wake Forest’s Veterans Legal Clinic. Ms. Neff spent her law school summers working for the Florida’s Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). At FEMA, she was part of the litigation team and assisted in flood insurance and environmental cases.
For her work on the TIDESS project at the University of Florida, Ms. Neff became a coauthor on multiple publications. This project was dedicated to creating an interactive museum exhibit on a digital, spherical display. In her free time, she enjoys traveling, visiting museums, and going on hikes.
