portrait of Hannah S.Marcley - Assistant General Counsel & Assistant Secretary of Atlantic Legal Foundation

Hannah Marcley is Assistant General Counsel & Assistant Secretary of Atlantic Legal Foundation and a dedicated advocate for limited government. She clerked for ALF in law school under Marty Kauffman before graduating from the University of Georgia School of Law and joining the Freedom Foundation. There, Hannah worked in the right-to-work movement, largely focusing on obtaining government records through state FOIA laws to assist public employees in exercising their right to reject union membership. 

Hannah won several appellate cases for the Freedom Foundation, including a politically charged case in front of the Washington Supreme Court. From there, Hannah went in house with Building Industry Association of Washington, the home builders trade association of Washington State, where she engaged in a much broader advocacy area, forcing Washington to treat employers and businesses constitutionally. Hannah also provided support to the industry in the beginning of the Covid lockdowns, helping them abide by the new rules to avoid penalties while also advocating against restrictions that were not reasonably applied to their business activities. 

Hannah expanded on this skill set at Pacific Legal Foundation and has now turned these skills into her own private practice, Diogenes Law PLLC. Throughout her career she has volunteered for organizations that attempt to right government wrongs, including the Washington Coalition for Open Government and the Seattle Clemency Project. Hannah looks forward to working with ALF to advance its mission.
