The Law Offices of Hannah C. Dugan LLC

Over the course of her entire career, Hannah Dugan has worked with nonprofit organizations to provide leadership, program initiation, legal representation and capacity building.

Her all-in commitment to efficient and effective nonprofit mission advancement is driven by her goal to make legal and human services accessible and affordable to everyone.

Dugan worked for 18 years as a lawyer in two Milwaukee nonprofit law firms, but she has always been passionate about mission fulfillment and about identifying the means to grow and provide added value to an organization.

She has excelled at the important functions for any advocate of nonprofit services, including extensive work in engaging board members; implementing goals, policies, and programs; and managing and reporting on funds and budgets.

She has served as a team member, supervising and leading aspects of personnel and resource development, needs assessments, program designs, finance and grant writing. She has raised, budgeted and distributed millions of dollars.

Now, in private practice, a primary focus of her legal work is representing nonprofits in legal planning and in transition, and includes occasionally taking on responsibilities as interim CEO or in other transitional management roles.

Additionally, Dugan has made it her responsibility to help develop the next generation of nonprofit leaders, lawyers and pro bono attorneys. She has taught nonprofit law at Marquette University for several years, and created the Pro Bono Society at Marquette, which recognizes students upon graduation for their pro bono contributions and work during law school.
