A long-time public defender, Hanan practiced as an appellate attorney for the D.C. Public Defender Service and as a trial attorney for the Committee for Public Counsel Service in Boston.

Hanan received her J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, where she was the recipient of the Henry M. Bates Memorial Scholarship Award.
