MILWAUKEE (June 7, 2017) – Godfrey & Kahn, S.C. is proud to announce that Shareholder Jennifer Hannon is one of 29 female members of Wisconsin's legal community to be named a 2017 recipient of the Wisconsin Law Journal's elite Women in the Law award.

The Women in the Law award honors extraordinary women attorneys, judges and legal educators based on the following criteria:

  • Women attorneys who have achieved excellence in their respective fields and have influenced other women to pursue legal careers;
  • Candidates who have opened doors for women lawyers in a variety of job settings that historically were closed to women;
  • Those who have advanced opportunities for women within a practice area or segment of the profession; and
  • Those who have otherwise served their profession or community in a manner that has benefited the legal profession.

Hannon is a shareholder in Godfrey & Kahn's Estate Planning, Estate & Trust Administration Practice Group. Her practice focuses on fiduciary income taxation, estate and gift taxation, probate and trust administration, and the drafting of wills, trusts, marital agreements and other related estate planning documents. 

She advises individuals, businesses, private foundations, and charitable organizations on transfer tax issues and asset protection strategies through the use of split-interest trusts, irrevocable generation-skipping trusts, and other unique estate planning and business succession planning techniques. She also advises financial institutions and insurance companies on multiple states’ laws concerning guardianships, durable powers of attorney, beneficiary designations, and probate and trust administration.

Prior to her legal career, Hannon was an enlisted member of the United States Army for eight years, serving as a combat medic.
