Hannah Roblyer considers her role to be equal parts tactician, translator, and advocate. She is committed to preparing thoroughly, counseling well, simplifying complexities, and resolving her clients’ conflicts favorably.

Hannah began her career clerking for the Honorable Ronald B. King, Chief United States Bankruptcy Judge for the Western District of Texas. Her early private practice included extensive trial work in addition to a robust appellate docket.  Now a dedicated appellate practitioner, Hannah’s litigation experience lends her special insight into tangles that arise over the lifespan of a case, as well as how to most efficiently and persuasively unravel them.  She uses her analytical background, writing skills, and oral advocacy excellence to create top-notch briefs and deliver compelling arguments for her clients.

Her experience covers a broad spectrum of matters, including complex commercial disputes, energy issues, copyright challenges, First Amendment cases, and products liability claims. Additionally, her pro bono work ranges from housing concerns to excessive force. Whatever the subject matter, she treasures each opportunity to meet her clients’ most pressing appellate needs with the highest integrity.

When she is not briefing or arguing, Hannah dearly loves helping students hone their talents. She serves as a coach for the University of Texas School of Law’s national bankruptcy moot court teams; mentors underrepresented students through the University of Houston Law Center’s Pre-Law Pipeline Program; and guest lectures at the undergraduate, graduate, and law school levels.
