Details

Jennifer Hanna created Eastbridge Law Group, LLP, to better facilitate her dreams of helping immigrants gain legal status in Wisconsin and throughout the United States. Immigration law cases she handles on their behalf include family based immigration, consular processing, naturalization, adjustment of status, VAWA, U-visas, DACA, green card renewal, fiance visas and asylum. She also consults on immigration consequences of criminal convictions.

Ms. Hanna completed her law degree at the University of Wisconsin Law School and became licensed to practice in Wisconsin in 2010. Since then, she has helped individuals pursue the American dream, and she has helped families reconcile. Seeing immigrants move on from the complex legal process to create happy and successful lives brings her true personal fulfillment

Her passion for immigration law has led to numerous recognitions for her hard work. In 2015, she was selected for Lead Counsel rating. She has also co-chaired an immigration CLE program that introduced other attorneys to immigration law. Additionally, Ms. Hanna has secured memberships in organizations that align with her values. She is a member of the Wisconsin State Bar, the American Immigration Lawyer's Association, the LGBT Chamber of Commerce and the Legal Association for Women.

Outside of work, Ms. Hanna continues her passion for helping immigrants find a solid footing in America. She provided pro bono legal assistance from 2016 to 2019 via the Family Law Assistance Center at the Dane County Courthouse. Since 2020, she has provided pro bono services via the Community Immigration Law Clinic, and in 2023 joined the Board of Directors for the Community Immigration Law Center.
